but now there's one underneath the dishwasher too {there's a FRANK for that}

and more fans.
that's what our house has been like since monday.
because at 5:30am sean came downstairs to start paperwork to a small pond in our kitchen.
every time chase comes inside he turns off the fans in the kitchen and yells at me that they're too loud and to turn them off.
i'm so glad it's warm outside because aint nobody wants to be inside a house full of super charged fans.
i turn them off at meal times.
it's heaven:)
thank you dishwasher.
thank you for waiting until the basement was finished to do this:)
wait, thank you for NOT waiting another 6 1/2 weeks.
actually, what if the ceiling wasn't there to catch all of that water?
everything that was down there...books...pictures...treadmill...would have all been soaked.
so really we feel like we dodged the bullet on this one.
the insulation soaked up most of the water.
the damage to the ceiling in brennan's room looks like it's going to suck back up and never be noticed again.
and the kitchen floor.
which is now bowing up and needing to be replaced.
well, we aren't so sad to say goodbye to it anyway.
so if i don't think about the money at all,
it's actually not so bad.
because guess what,
as of tomorrow,
i won't have carpet under my kitchen table anymore.
just don't think about the money though...
after two days not one single appliance guy ever being able figure out why the dishwasher actually flooded our house, sean and i laid on the floor for half an hour with flashlights on wadded up towels with it running. waiting on pins and needles, praying for it to pee its pants so ta speak.
and well,
that darn dishwasher wouldn't perform.
it was dry as a bone. 
sean laid there for another hour and a half.
and still nothing.
not one drop ever.
never have we ever been so happy we spent $99 on RC willey's extended warranty.
bc now a brand spanking new dishwasher is coming to the gibson home next week.
after the floors go in.
and maybe life will return to normal for a few weeks before it won't again.
not gonna lie though.
trusting the metal box in my kitchen with the sprinkler inside of it 
won't ever be so easy for me ever again.
water alarms.
we have them all over our house.
but now there's one underneath the dishwasher too:)
lesson learned.
also, don't lay on the floor at 32 weeks pregnant for half an hour on wadded up towels.
not smart.
{a HUGE thank you to our good friend FRANK for always coming to our flooding emergencies before i have time to cry for too long. if you need FRANK, you can call him at Anchor Water Damage & Restoration 801.269.0343. no one will treat ya kinder. NOBODY! 
for once, the wet bandit wasn't max. who knew!? 
whatever or whomever your wet bandit is, i assure you, there's a FRANK for that.}
