Water, Water Everywhere.........

  Yesterday was the day I was to celebrate my Blogiversary!  I had great plans for what I would post, and maybe even attempt a giveaway, but.......
  I was sitting at my computer planning my next post, my little girl sound asleep in my lap when I heard an awful sound.  My husband had been polishing up my Jeep and was planning on washing off some of the salt and road dust that had accumulated these last couple of months.  My poor vehicle is rather neglected when he's not around to take care of it.  Anyway...I heard the outside tap turn on (it's quite noisy) and then I heard the sound of spraying water.  It should be noted that the plumbing for this line is located in the unfinished ceiling of my craft room.  I ran in only to see my photos, papers, albums, ect spread out on my counter, water showering down upon everything.  I yell for My husband to turn off the water and he does so quickly.  Too late....the damage is done!!
  At this point I decided it would be a good idea to go upstairs, sit down and take a deep breath (or two) and give myself a chance to calm down.  Meanwhile Kieth went down to clean things up and asses the damage.  I decided not to go down there again that night.  The next morning after reasurances that everything hadn't been destroyed I ventured down to see if there was anything left to salvage and found several sheets of warped papers, but most of the photos were intact.  My current album page was also a little warped but the photos weren't damaged thankfully as they were origionals 35mm film (no negs!).  Deep sigh...
  Needless to say, the Blogiversary had been forgotton.  Still working on clean up but will have some LOs from a fun get together this weekend to post later.
