I Dreamed I was a Ship on the Ocean

It's been a stormy week, but the ship seems to be righting itself. The very worst, aside from the knowledge of how stupid and preventable our little flood was, was the equipment that was brought in to dry us out. The machines roared and the wind blew and the heat rose (the technicians measured 116 degrees in the closet) and the big dehumidifiers sucked all the spit out of your mouth almost instantly. The noise was constant and deafening; it thrummed through the floors around the clock. We fled to the other end of the house and slept there, but we could still hear it. When they pronounced us dry this morning and took away the machines, we could have wept in relief. It's spring break from school (although not from work), and I feel as if I'm on vacation now.

I celebrated with a little work on my accounting midterm in the quiet and with some stitching on Karen's neighborhood.


Our tiles will be put back in the next couple of weeks, and until then (when we have plans for an elaborate Fort-Knox-like enclosure for each of the buns), the bunnies are caged and not very happy about it.

"Let me out. I have Easter eggs to pack!"

Listen up Pink! Be at the backside of the cage at 2:00am sharp. If we can get the car, we are coming to spring you from that pop-stand!!!

What a mess! But its things like this that we buy insurance for. I wonder if there is going to be a clause put in your policy against future bunny damage.

Quite an adventure for you and for Pink! It's amazing what bunnies can do if they put their minds (or teeth) to it.

Beautiful stitching, by the way.

Noise is a recognized form of torture, you know. Glad you survived!

Oh no, what a mess. Poor Pink and poor you to have to listen to the clean up crew as they do their job. Hope life is back together for you soon.

Poor bunny...he looks pitifully sad. Glad to hear the dehumidification process is finished. Enjoy your stitching!
