The Birthday Celebration
We finally had my little one's 4th birthday celebration this past weekend. I was totally exhausted but It was completely worth it. My 4 year old had a fantastic time playing with her little friends and opening all her gifts. Fun was had by all until we realized that we had our own indoor pool in the basement. Let me start at the beginning of this drama. Last week our sump pump stopped working. So, the hubby went and purchased a new unit. The new unit worked a total of 5 days and stopped working in the early morning hours of Sunday. At around 2 am the entire basement flooded. Uggg!! We still had some friends at the house that planned on spending the night. We were all still up chatting and enjoying our visit when we came across the flood. They helped the hubby pump all the water out of the basement. Later that morning the hubby returned the old pump and purchased a new pump with a battery backup. It didn't help matters that we are getting the after math of hurricane Ike. It's been raining in Michigan for 3 days straight. My front and back yards look like mini lakes. Today we plan on trying to finish the cleanup job in the basement. I'm going to have to unpack boxes and let things dry out. I'm so bummed out that we lost so much stuff.
