That describes the last two days for me.
Our septic tank backed up into our house. The downstairs toilet overflowed gallons onto my hardwood floor. It came out in the hall. It was e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e.
Can you imagine me with a house full of poopie germs?
I clean all the doorknobs and banister after someone comes over!
I wash my hands first thing when I come home, Caroline too.
I use my sleeves on the grocery cart.
I use Purell after pumping gas.
I bleach everything.
I go through 105 Clorox Wipes in my house every other week.
This was more than my germ-o-meter could handle!!!!!!!!
At least I've retained my sense of humor.
We had someone come out and were outside with them until almost midnight, then this morning they came back and discovered that we had a break in the line in the back yard. It had filled with mud and was causing the back-flow into the house. They had to bring a back-hoe and fix it.
$2,750 later...I can flush.
Whew. That's a steep price to be able to go to the bathroom.
Now I have mopped and mopped and mopped and mopped and mopped (yes it really was about that many times) and I'm going to get on my hands and knees tomorrow with paper towels and Lysol and scrub 'til my hands bleed.
My wood floor is chipping off behind the toilet, it still looks soaked even though I got the water up immediately. I'm sure it is under the floor. Too bad it's not 90 outside instead of 20!
I'm just going to pray over it that we won't get mold and trust God.
The worst part is that ALL my towels, new and old are now filled with dirty toilet water and I have to wash them all tomorrow.
Boy that ought to be fun!!
So just think - if you think YOU had a bad day...you could have had mine!!!
