Last night disaster struck, but I don’t want to overlook the help that we’ve received in the last 12 hours – so there is a happy ending. I was working on my last minute stuff for the craft fair tomorrow and we started to get some leaking from the apartment above us. That was about 8:30 last night – the water got worse and worse, come to find out the upstairs tennants had some whatever happen with their children… we ended up with 3 hours of dripping toilet water. It sounds minor but I had a waterfall down the walls and buckets filled and overflowing in some areas of the apartment.
Our master bedroom, walk in closet (also doubles as my littlest girl’s bedroom), bathroom and into our kitchen (currently set up as my work room) got flooded. We worked until 3 am to move things out of the water, move into a new apartment, get the girls cleaned up and changed, run a load of laundry so we could get into some clean clothing…
This morning we had an outpouring of help to finish the move into a new apartment. We have loads and loads of laundry to finish, some disinfecting to complete but not many things were a total loss – however the craft show is one of the losses.
I’m afraid I can’t feel good about trying to force it to happen at this point when I need to get our house back together and our things cleaned. My sweet husband and I have Sunday and Monday to get ourselves back together and I just needed to let go of the craft fair. It looks so fun, and there are going to be so many cool people there… if you can make it – DO.
I think what I’ll do is just list my stuff on Etsy and watch for another opportunity before we leave Virginia.
