Today is Jeff's 43rd birthday. I can't believe he is so old!!! Grant and I called him this morning to sing "Happy Birthday" on our way to school. Jeff is STILL out of town. He left last Thursday to go visit his friend Brad in Deluth, MN for the weekend and then he has been in rural Minnisota all week working. We are very anxious for him to get back on Saturday afternoon. We are planning a big family celebration on Sunday.
Everyone cross your fingers that there won't be any disasters today. Ever since Jeff turned 40 it seems like August 28th has been cursed.
On August 28, 2005 we had a terrible storm here in Wichita . We had been in our new house just over a year (we moved in August 1, 2004) and our basement completely flooded. The sump pump quit working when the electricity went out and the drain beside the sump pump was clogged so there was no place for the water to go. We had a builders warranty but it had just expired and it didn't cover ANY of the damage. Water was up over all of our trim work throughout the entire basement. It took nearly 4 months to get the basement repaired and livable again.
On August 28, 2006 hurricane Katrina hit.
On August 28, 2007 . . . Now who's the old one??? I know something happened but I am drawing a blank. I'll have to think and update this later.
