4 gallons at a time

| | Comments (4)

That's how we're emptying the water from the basement. Actually, I shouldn't say 'we', as John has been doing most of the work. He bought a pump but it isn't working at all. So he's been vacuuming up the water into the shop vac, dumping it into the buckets, carting the bucket up the stairs and away from the house, and dumping the water out. I carried only a few buckets worth before my knees started to really complain.
I finally pulled him away from it at 2230 - we still have to get up in the morning and I have to leave for work between 0630 and 0645. So it's off to the showers and to sleep. We still have lots of standing water to clear out, but John is willing to wait till tomorrow to work on it.
Have I mentioned how much I love my husband? Not only is he a great dad to our kids, but he also takes good care of me. And he is also handy with all kinds of chores. There's a lot to be said in favor of marrying a hands-on engineer.
