Right after we moved into our house, in February of 2000, we had a problem with groundwater seeping through the foundation and soaking the carpet in the basement. Well, it’s doing it again. Traci and I have been trying to keep up with the water flow, which isn’t terribly fast, but we can’t stay up all night doing this shit. I borrowed my mom’s carpet cleaner, then I ran out and bought a Shop-Vac, and we’ve been keeping at it for a couple of hours now.
We’re too exhausted to care anymore, so we moved everything up off the floor, and I, for one, plan on sleeping soundly tonight. I already filed a claim with my insurance company, even though I doubt they’ll cover any of the damages or repairs. This time, I swear I’m moving out as soon as possible.
