Our Home Disaster!!!!

Our toliet broke a little over a week ago, Ezra changed parts of the toliet but the "flappy thing" - I do not know the official word- was not sealing correctly. On Monday, November 10th, Ezra was putting the baby to sleep when leaving our room he said water was EVERYWHERE down the hall, in the bathroom, in our room, David's room, the kitchen. Even worse the water went down stairs... so we rented a rug doctor and cleaned the best we could. We even put industrial fans on it- no luck. On Wednesday our house started to stink, and on Thursday we called the insurance, within a short time there was someone there telling us that we had to get out of the house because they had to demo it, remove everything to dry it out- WHAT?? We had to move out in less than 24 hours. So we did- we had no boxes- our house was packed in many many garbage bags and put into a storage unit (Can you imagine how fun that is going to be to unpack???) They say the house will be dry on Wednesday and then the real demo takes place because they cannot just remove part of the tile, rug, or wood flooring - ALL OF IT has to come out. In the mean time we are lucky enough to have our parents near by David and Sylvia let us come live with them. They say it should like 3 weeks to a month to fix our home. Here is the damage....
