We're Happier Now

A couple of year ago, we lived in a house that had a full basement. It wasn't finished by any means, and when it rained, the basement would flood. I'm not talking about a little bit of dripping here and there. There would be about an inch or two of water covering the entire floor. Junior would have to go down there and hook up a pump that diverted the water out a window. We had big plans to have someone come in and do some Basement waterproofing so that we could make a playroom down there. Not for the kids, though. We were going to put the pool table down there, and maybe a big screen television and couches. We wanted somewhere where the adults could go and hang out.

Moving out of that house was a blessing in disguise. I've heard rumors that it is literally falling apart, and I am just glad we are not still living there. Sure, we don't have as much room now as we did then, but we are a lot happier, and that is what is important.

At least to me.

We don't have a basement at our house and I wish I really did. It would not be fun to have water in the basement.

good that you transferred to your new house. basement that gets flooded is so messy. I hope you can post some photos of your new house.

Tammy ~ I miss the space we used to have, but wouldn't go back there for a million dollars.

it's a good thing you didn't put the pool table down there. Even just a little moisture will ruin a pool table. We keep a dehumidifier in the same room with our table. I am so glad you moved, and even though space is more limited, you are living in a much nicer place :)

We are in a much nicer place, and hoping that someday we can get a place of our own that has room for another pool table. We used to have ours in the living room. Thankfully, the room was big enough to have a "pool" area, and a living area.
