My Mini Flood

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of goviral. All opinions are 100% mine.

Last week, I had a flood in my kitchen.  The hose that runs the water to my dishwasher came loose, and hot water was pouring out from underneath.  Thankfully, the kids and I were home, and even though I had no idea how to turn the water off, I was able to throw down lots of towels to contain the water while Ryan ran and got the maintenance man.

I don't want to think about what would have happened if we were not home.  Our vents for heat and A/C are on the floor, so the water would have filled the entire system I'm sure.  then it would have ruined the bottoms of my couch and entertainment center.  I don't even want to think about what it could have done to my books.

I learned how to turn the water off in the house, too, in case it happens again.  I don't like how helpless I felt, and it was just for a few minutes.  I can not imagine how people feel who lose everything in floods.  It must be such a helpless feeling.  The good news is that you can carry flood insurance, so you will have someone on your side who understands.

The only problem I had was having to wash every towel I own.  I was lucky, and I know it.
