Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt, November 15th
Today's theme is ruined. I asked my husband a few days ago---Can you think of any pictures we have that go along with the theme 'ruined'?" And he reminded me of all that ruined carpet. And this was just the beginning of a year that got ruined, in my opinion.
This is our living room, from the front door. Well, and the dining room. Who knew all this was under our carpet? It's very weird, but I suppose it's the remnants of all that glue putting the carpet down. Paint splotches were everywhere, too.
Here's the little corner by my bedroom door. So lovely. Carpet padding still stuck down to the concrete.
The last picture is what ruined our carpet. A strong downpour for much longer than our drainage could take, along with some construction a half a mile away, contributed to this problem.Do you know if our carpet had been ruined by a broken hot water heater or busted pipe, we could have gotten more flooring through insurance. But because it was a flood, no go! I didn't really imagine that we would need flood insurance. It wasn't required. It's just like the commercials I've been seeing on the TV for flood insurance from the government. "I don't even live near the water!" it says on the commercial. Thank goodness it didn't get in the walls!
If you'd like to take a downer trip, go see more ruined photos at TNChick's website. ;-) Next week's theme is reflection. "Reflections of . . . the way life used to be . . . "
