A bad day

We had a plumbing emergency this morning.
Ben was in the shower when the water suddenly went cold.
When he went to investigate,
he noticed a new water feature in our kitchen.
It was like a waterfall, 
coming from the ceiling.
He shut off main water supply
and we started cleaning up water.
It was EVERYWHERE.

This is what happened:

 This is the middle bedroom upstairs.
We are SO thankful we didn't choose this room for Alice's bedroom!




 A plumber came and fixed the pipe.
Then came the guys to dry up the water.

Now our house looks like this:









Great.
Just when we started to see the light at the end of the home improvement tunnel...

Today's saving grace:
My friend, Sarah, brought over a cupcake for me.
It was the best cupcake I've ever had.

We know it could've been worse.
That could have been Alice's room.
We were both home when it happened.
I called about 6 weeks ago and lowered our homeowners insurance deductible.
Of all the days of this week, today was the best day for it to happen.

Tomorrow is going to be a better day.

P.S. I love you, USAA.

I'm impressed that you took these photos! Wow, what a crazy mess. I'm am so glad Alice wasn't in that room, too.
