Being a homeowner

For less than 6 months...4 months to be exact. And our first REALLY HARD DAY. We were just about to leave this morning to go do the Lou Gehrig's walk that we do in honor of my grandpa every year....Troy was downstairs and I was upstairs with Lucy, finally ready...
and troy comes in....
honey..the bathroom has some water on the floor..i am going to be a second...
i'm like ok....maybe we will be running a tad late...dang it...



little did I realize we would have SEWAGE that flooded our first floor.

NOT A PLEASANT SMELL OR SIGHT.

It is now Hours and hours after we found this and I will well..cut to the chase. Our house has 10 big fan things and dehumidifiers that blow EXTREMELY loud and are intended to make your house 90 degrees, our baseboards in the kitchen got ripped up, half of the carpet in our living room is gone...and that is just a start!

Two doors down from us the same thing happened to a lady. We were at the same time running things out of our houses to save them...
It is NOT our fault. Obviously. It happens at the same time to two different people ...cant be a coincidence.
HOA...well they are being UNCOOPERATIVE to say the least! We are very lucky we have insurance...and were wanting to put wood floors in...but we DO NOT have the $1000 deductible to pay our insurance company in order to start repairs and Troy is now wanting to file a lawsuit against the HOA.

I will keep you updated.
By the way..no repairs were ever done. The plumber who came said there isnt a problem. We arent flushing toilets or using the water tonight except to shower. Lets hope we dont wake up at 2am to another flood. I will shoot someone. Preferrably the PLUMBER!!!
