The Life & Times of Mommiehood

Here I am finding my way through uncharted waters.

hhmmm. interesting.


We have had an interesting week.

Not really in a good way.

Last Monday I was finally able to start the process of getting both kids in one room.Or so I thought.

The plan was to donate a recliner and a dresser/changing table (by the time ARC got here only the dresser was left for them to take). To rearrange some furniture. To bring in the girl’s bed and dresser. To reclaim our bedroom.

Unfortunately when I pulled out the dresser there was some water damage. This whole past week we have been talking with neighbors, plumbers, insurance, clean up guys … attempting to get a hold of the HOA once we discovered that the leak did not appear to be in our unit but somewhere above in a drain pipe.

Finally last night we convinced our neighbor to contact a plumber to come and find the leak so we can get it fixed and move forward with the clean up. Then this morning the HOA’s maintenance man came to check things out in our place. Guess they finally got the memo.  They are now working on getting the leak fixed, which apparently is a huge crack that goes between both our unit and the one above us. When the hubby spoke to the lady at the HOA she was panicked and trying to come up with all the things we have done wrong in this. Yeah. Thanks. I’ve never dealt with something like this. As soon as we found the pipe the leak was coming from various people have been calling the HOA, just not the emergency number. Though, really, anyone who actually LISTENED to the voice mails should have been able to transfer them to the right place.

Over the past couple days we have had so many people praying for us, helped us feel calm an more capable of dealing with the issue. Thankful that some of this is finally getting worked out and I guess as it continues to unfold we will find out how much of this mess we will get stuck paying for and how much whomever’s insurance will cover.

To end on a positive note, here’s our displaced little dude, crashed on the floor in mom and dad’s room. Had to move him back to his space so I did not end up tripping on him in the middle of the night!

My husband Andrew and I have been married for fourteen years and love living in Colorado! Eight years ago I became a mommie to an awesome little boy and four years ago to my precious little girl. The past few years have been a whirlwind.

  1. Oh my what a nightmare! I am so sorry to see that you have to deal with that water damage. The worst part seems to be that 3 to 4 people are involved and you just can’t make decisions and go with it. Hope for a swift fix!

  2. Exactly. Once the pipe gets fixed we will most likely just have to work to get $$ from the insurance company. And get our place back together, hopefully just in time to rent it out. Some friends have graciously offered their basement if our home becomes unliveable. God is good. It’ll work out. Just wish it didn’t take so long sometimes.
