clean up crew

Today was a rainy day in St. George. I got up and got ready for work knowing I probably wouldn't be staying the whole day. I got to work and after an hour they sent me home. I did some shopping and when I got home I decided I would make the house so sparkly clean and surprise Alex when he got home from school. Well joke was on me, because as I went to plug in the vacuum water soaked my sock. At first I thought it could be coming through the ceiling but then I noticed that it was we throughout our whole hallway. I called Alex in a panic and guess what, he already knew, our hot water heater had been leaking all morning. Luckily the plumber was able to come over and replace the hot water heater today, but we ended up having to pull up all our carpet and tear out all the padding underneath it. We are feeling blessed that we were able to borrow some fans from a flood company and our carpet should be dry by the morning, we are also pretty happy that the carpet guy is able to come on Monday morning to replace the padding and put the carpet back in.
{I swear we don't have moldy floors, I totally thought it was mold but I guess its just from gluing the carpet to the ground}
