Rain, Rain, GO AWAY!!!!

What is the deal with all of this rain?  I don't think we've had this wet of a spring/summer ever!! And of all years to start construction on a house, this was not the year to do it.  It's probably cost us an extra $4,000 - $5,000 to fix everything that the rain has damaged.  Because the framers had to take off part of the existing roof to tie the new roof into, our ceilings were exposed a little bit.  And, wouldn't you know it, it rained again pretty heavily yesterday.  Last night there were little waterfalls all throughout the house.  So, we now have to replace ALL of the ceilings and light fixtures in our house.  We went there today after church and this is what it looks like......(notice the canned lights hanging?  And the light fixture behind the big beam that's still on the ceiling is filled with water).  
 On the bright side, I hated the textured ceilings, so at least we can get rid of them and get something else that isn't so gross, right?
We spent the week at April's house in Holladay taking care of Cali while they were on vacation and it was SO awesome!!  They've got a gorgeous house and we all love that dog (even Todd admitted that he really liked her, and he doesn't like dogs.  I see a dog in our future.... :))
It was kind of hard to be back in the little one bedroom basement apartment at Gwen's tonight, but at least we have a place to stay.   It can't be finished too soon for me!!

We had another fun evening demolishing the inside of our house.  The kids loved it!!
