Well it's been awhile
June is always a hectic month with the kids finishing out school, final exams, sports banquets, end of year celebrations, soccer parties, gymnastics shows, band concerts, award ceremonies...you get the picture.
This year, the day after school ended, we packed up and headed to the NJ shore for a week of fun in the sun. If only the water line to the fridge hadn't burst, it would have been a nice relaxing week. Thankfully our good friends were texting, calling, and emailing us to let us know about the flood, figured out how to turn off water to the house, and spent hours making headway cleaning up ceiling tiles, and mess that resulted in our finished basement. Hubby, aka my hero, zoomed 5 hours to get home and deal with cleanup, allowing us to stay at the beach. If there is any lesson to be learned, "know where the shut-off valve to your fridge line is", and then before vacation shut it off! We've added that to our vacation checklist, right next to washing machine shut-off valves :) Also, make sure the folks watching your home know where the water line shut-off, and other utility shut-off points are.
