Water in the basement really sucks. I've been through it several times in different homes. It never gets better.

I hate taking extra medication, specially narcotics, but I have to say that with my chronic pain, the Emtec (like Tylenol 3 except without caffeine which gives me migraines) is the only thing keeping me from crying like a baby. And I am not one to show much of my pain.

The cookies are for gifts for people who have helped me out - like my neighbour who comes over once in awhile and cleans my bathrooms and her daughter entertains the animals for me. Another neighbour who takes me shopping and when I can't go, shops for me. I don't really feel a few cookies is enough, but it is all I can do right now. They aren't even fancy Christmas cookies.
You are such a nice person for baking for everyone in your life. I'm sure that fancy doesn't matter. Your heart is in the right place. Merry Christmas!

Well the extra pump made the difference. The waters ahve subsided. Hopefully my water heater will dry out enough to light it again soon.

What a bummer. The water table is too high here to have basements, for the most part. There are a few, but they get wet regularly. We have a crawl space.

Pac, I am so sorry for your troubles. Floods of any kind are no fun. Didn't the paper towels soak any of the water up for you? (Sorry, had to do it )
But seriously, My thoughts are with you.

I had a rough night and got to bed about an hour before TB got up for work. I just woke up a little bit ago and was still feeling woozy and sore. So, it was that more special when I rounded the corner and saw my colourful snowflake lights hung up above the sliding glass doors.

TB has been meaning to do it but hasn't had the time. He has very little of it in the morning, but took a few minutes to hang those lights because he knew they would cheer me up and they did.

Laurie, you might be surprised to know just how heavy an eight pack of Brawny paper towels can get!

I've got a fan on the water heater now. It's one of those piezo push button ignition ones. I can't even see where the pilot light is or if I am getting spark. Stupid thing.
