I was a little blurry as I stumbled out of bed. It was going to be a busy day.
Around 4 I headed home to help my friend Debrah with oils for a nasal problem. It didn't look good. I ran around the house. I needed a BOAT! Debrah was nice and drove around to the cul-de-sac behind us. We both exclaimed, "Oh my!" It was full. A raging river was flowing... rather shooting out between the houses from the farm field behind us. We were trouble.
It began to rain harder. It was coming down in sheets! Sometimes it was blowing sideways off the cars!
John even went and got a second sump pump to help the sump pump that was working it's tail off. The water level stayed the same.
We needed more sand bags.
Anyway, we eventually were able to get the water flow to stop... and the clean up began. After Thanksgiving I will have to bleach the floor to kill germs. It's just been a busy week. At least Yvonne was nice enough to take my laundry and brought it back clean and dry. :)
During the middle of all this, I got a phone call that the schools were on 2 hour delay due to flooding all around town. That meant that seminary needed to be cancelled. I couldn't get a hold of my substitute teacher or the other teacher, so I started calling all the seminary students myself. It took me awhile, but I got everyone... even the sub. And I got my classroom disassemble. Just one more thing to do on the list.
After things were under control at the house, and I had made dinner for the masses, I ran back to the church. Kimber, Ray and Megan had finished with what we had. We all felt like something was missing. Maybe we needed plants. I couldn't find anyone with nice plants... so I called one of my best friends. He is an angel and met me after 9pm. We got all the theater plants, a park bench, and then he came out with the mother load... these cool arches and iron gates. Once again, Megan showed her true colors and came back to the church to put on the finishing touches. Shar came to set up her photo area and our friend Alicen came and helped for a couple hours. We didn't leave the church until around midnight but it looked great!
HUGE thanks to Kimber, Ray, MaryJane, Megan and Witt. All credit goes to them for how awesome it looked. The bride and groom were pleasantly surprised the next day when they saw it.
