Basement Aftermath

I am still dealing with the aftermath of the Great Basement Catastrophe of 2013.

Laundry piled up, dishes piled up, dirt piled up, and I needed four showers to get all the grime off me.  Long story short: I’m still cleaning.

Okay, back to wielding a Magic Eraser and blasting Jagged Edge.

Giving batman a sponge bath, yessssssss.

A few years ago my parents basement had some serious issues– Hot weather + dehumidifier randomly stopped working while they were away for a week….=serious mold and mess. I know it was a pain in the rear for them to clean and had to get rid of a lot of things–hope you get it all back in normal orders soon!

Yuck! Flooded basement + humidity = Sad Momma! I do have to ask, what was the machine you were using on the tile caled? It looks like something I should own as a momma of 4 crazy girls.

True story. Jagged Edge stayed at the same hotel as us during a youth conference back in my youth conference dayz. We didn’t know who they were. The end.

Your mop (I think) is from the future! Like Jetson’s future.
