Wow, I'm so sorry to hear of your flooding problems. I can sympathize. We live in an apartment. Last September, our hot water tank decided to start leaking. I was in the bedroom closet and noticed the floor was completely soaked. I had to pull everything out of the closet and set it in front of one of the dressers. It stayed that way for a few weeks, until the apartment complex maintenance decided to come and address the issue. We have had numerous problems since then... with carpet cleaning, closet doors..etc.

I'm sure that doesn't hold a candle to wha you were/are going through. Hugggggggggs to you!

right now I have a sign posted to my kitchen toilet to please not use and personally instructed my 6 year old granddaughter.........my hubby insisted on buying 2 ply toilet paper during the 3 weeks he was home........I told him that it would clog the toilets as I had had the low water usage installed.........it didn't matter.......he was an engineer and I didn't have to worry.............I knew it........the others have managed to handle it except this one........I have plunged and plunged and expunged as much as I can......I know that I'm going to have to call in a plumber.......meantime as far as animals are concerned I have 2 out of 4 cats living outdoors (well they sleep on a bed in the garage) because they preferred the carpet over the catbox.......any of my friends will tell you that they can't believe the litter box doesn't smell as I clean it out as soon as it's used.......I'm obsessive about it........Laurie, I really really really feel for you, Girlfriend and anyone else with toilet problems and hope that you get it situated soon........

We had that this morning. The other end and walked in and trekked all over the living room. 6am this morning, then I woke everyone else up using the carpet cleaning machine.

We are in the High Flood Alert area, so I know how you feel!! Many times I've had to come home from work, because the neighbour has rung to say "Les the waves are lapping round you front door!!" Ugh, good job our son's a carpet fitter, keeps him busy!! But it's no joke.

Thanks, everyone. I just needed to vent last night. I was in pain and it just seemed like this house thing was never ending. I really appreciate your support and your stories.

Oh, miniman, I am sorry to hear that. It is not pleasant at all.
