My apartment flooded today.

Aug 24, 2016 10:23 AM

I went to take a shower and the handle flew off... the valve stem followed. There was a waterfall just gushing everywhere. :( we had the fire department come out and shut the water off and luckily there wasn't any lasting damage. The adrenaline wore off and now I'm just sore and in a lot of pain. I was supposed to go in to work today and I'm trying to figure out what to do to get myself to that point. Ughhhh.... just needed to vent.

Oh how awful! I'm glad you weren't injured by slipping, and that the damage is minimal. Try and take it easy as you can. Big (((hugs))) love & prayers the rest of your day is much better!! πŸ™‚πŸ’•πŸ™πŸŒΈ

Thanks! I think I just need to take the day off. The plumber came through and should fix it today. Really looking forward to a shower.

We're all okay... we've had to crate both furbabies all day and that's been tough on them, but other than that things are okay. The plumber is still theeeeere

Lol, my husband was doing such a good job comforting me I didn't even think about it... plus I didn't have my contacts in. ;) I'm definitely feeling it today though, it's like I got hit by a truck.
