Just a little update of where we are today and how much damage was actually done. There was more damage then we thought! This is what my mom's bedroom looks like today and this is where we thought it all started but it wasn't. The water came into my mom's living room and traveled under the wall into her bedroom. That goodness it stopped before making into her walk-in closet. We have dehumidifiers on and they dried it all up. This is a picture of the sub-floor ripped out.
There was a little bit of mold starting, but it was only on the wood that was ripped out.
This is a picture of her living room before the plastic was picked up, you can see the water under it. Having the plastic under the sub-floor is good and bad. It's good because it helped stop the water from traveling farther, but bad because it holds the moisture.
We're lucky it didn't travel into the dining room!
Now onto something a little prettier! With the contractors here there is not much we can do, so my mom and I needed a little out yesterday. I finished picking up the last minute school supplies and then we made a quick stop in Home Goods. In the last year I've been so lucky finding such pretty lamps in their and yesterday was another lucky day for me. Let's take a look at this beauty I found for only $40.
Here's a before picture. Pretty but I wanted something a little bigger.

I've always had a thing for a pretty lamp, how about you? Thanks so much for stopping by and thank you for all the kind comments and e-mails you've sent on our run in with mother nature. Your support means so much to me:) Martina
