No more potty prayers
Updated: Feb 13
So, I don’t know if you can tell, but I’ve been in the cleaning and organizing “mode”–evidenced by the fact that I have spent time doing it, and now I’m even blogging about it.
So, just because I am on a rampage does not necessarily mean that the rest of the family feels the need to speed up to action.. immediately. Remember how my hubby is a steady-eddy? He doesn’t get too ruffled one way or the other about the 10 million ideas or schemes that come his way by way of my mouth. I appreciate that about him. We both can’t be crazy. So, long story short there’s been this “hurdle” in my organizing that looked like a pile of books and things from his office when he reorganized it last summer. It was right in the middle of my “dungeon”–just patiently waiting for the wind to blow the right way. Obviously, they were not urgent things, or they would already be put somewhere.
So, my blitzing goal for June was to get the office and dungeon up to speed. But there’s this pile of “crap” just sitting there that I have no idea what to do with. I’m pretty sure from the depth of my soul there bubbled up this very spiritual prayer–“Lord, could you just get rid of this shhhh…tuff? please!!???” Ahem.
This is where the whole “be careful what you pray for” lesson comes into play. Probably three days after my sincere but irreverent prayer was offered, that the ejector pump on the sewer broke, and there really was shhh.. fecal matter on like.. everything–not just the offending stuff.
So, that was Friday. It’s only like Wednesday morning, and we have entire rooms of carpeting removed, drywall gone and an entire bathroom exhumed. It’s juicy. It’s just.. yeah.
Let me tell ya, these destruction teams know what they are doing. They just come in there and get everything out. Anything that has a moisture reading is gone. so gone. And we have a million fans down there and two cute little minions who come and check on it every day. I make the minions cookies, cuz they have it rough in this life.
So.. that’s one way to get your basement cleaned up in a hurry I guess. The good news is that it really doesn’t smell bad. We got everything cleaned up so fast that it’s not a smell issue, other than what might be mold-mildewish smell. I think their anti-microbial stuff and all of the cutting and removing of stuff and fans should be enough to clean it out. And the weather has been nice enough to keep the windows open also. so hey.. what’s not to love?
On a happier note, our air conditioning, washer, dryer, and dishwasher are all working. The new lawn mower has been ordered. So hey.. what’s not to like?
God is good and answers my prayers. That’s fer sure.
