Sunday, my kitty died. Monday, our house flooded. Yesterday was pretty nice, considering we were still in shock.

Were we done?

Oh hell no.

But wait, there's more )

An entire floor of wet carpet & padding is out of the house and in a dumpster. There is no way in hell we are EVER recarpeting down there; large area rugs and pads for us, thanks. Dehumidifiers and blowers are sucking electricity at alarming rates and emergency mode is over. There are some uncertain variables, such as if the wallboards are salvageable and if we will be in Texas next week.

'pop'. Does not compute.

Again, thank you all for support and help! We're probably in a holding pattern for a few days.

I am thankful we have the upstairs half of our house to live in. I have no clue when the downstairs half will be habitable again since it is 100% trashed and the water keeps coming in, but many in the state have it far worse tonight.

Thank you all for your support. I am beyond thankful for the two shoves towards 'sane' from [ profile] spaceling (stuff schlepper, Home Depot shopper & navigator extraordinaire) & [ profile] tim_wright (catsitter for a severely traumatized Tori & provider of tasty cookies), and several connections with a sump pump and wetvac although it's a pointless battle now. A river runs through it all in addition to the ocean in our backyard.

My advisor is now taking care of everything related to Texas for me. She refuses to allow me to discuss incompletes; she will talk with everyone on my behalf, see grades posted, and I can make up the work later. I then began to cry and she told me she loves me.

I have entered a time and space where I set out from one room with a mission then forget what it is I'm doing within 2 seconds. I cannot stop shaking.

Kieran did remarkably well considering we turned his home life upside down today. He insisted on doing his homework and only got whiny toward the end when he was clearly tired, then fell asleep promptly with my laptop playing some Enya to drown out the ruckus from downstairs.

I should probably try to do the same.
twilight33: (sad)
As if yesterday wasn't enough to handle, about 80% of our finished basement is now a loss.

Likelihood of leaving to go to my graduation in 9 days is rapidly dropping to zero.

Debating calling my advisor, declaring insanity, and taking incompletes.

I cannot cope.
