Basement Blues

In just under 2 weeks we will finally be heading home. Neil is only staying for the weekend as he is going to come back up for post-season but the boys and I will be there for a week before heading back up to be with Neil for the rest of September. I am very excited to get back to my house EXCEPT for the fact that 1/2 of it is still in shambles! Our basement flooded and since it's just been sitting bare. I want nothing more than to go home and in that one week fix it all up and have it back to normal but I know that's not going to happen... can I really install a sump pump by myself?? Anyway, so this is what I've decided, I just have to look on the bright side of having a bare basement and figure out how to take advantage of the situation. I am definitely taking Porter's bike home for the week, he can ride and ride all over the basement, I think he'll love that. I'm sure I can find some spray painting projects that need to be done and now I have an entire basement to paint in! Those are the only 2 things I've come up with so far so if you have any ideas of how I can utilize my bare basement and make myself feel better about it, let me know!


  1. I'd say draw on the cement with sidewalk chalk but maybe the dust would be annoying?

  2. id say come play with me and forget about the basement lol...


Straight up now tell me...
