An unexpected result of having a new kitchen
We just had the second "hundred-year" flood in our basement in the last three years. Saved most of the valuable stuff (family photos), but lost a lot of other stuff (couch, rug, antique trunk, bookcases, books...) Insurance doesn't cover it, and the village is telling all the residents that it can't afford to fix the sewers.
I'm laughing because as much as I'm fed up with this house and its foibles, I can't move -- just finished the new kitchen, and there's no way I could give it up.
The painters are finishing up today, electrician next week (I hope), and then I'll post a finished kitchen thread!
