My floors go in today and tomorrow...we've been kicked out during the process so we're turning it into a Merry Christmas getaway and spending two days at a hotel in the area. We'll be spending time at the Mall of America, going on Nickelodeon rides, checking out the Underwater World, swimming in the hotel pool and eating out! Sounds like a wonderful vacation to me! The floors are the final piece of the puzzle - putting my house back together. All in all the damage from the toilet lever that got stuck came to around $20, 000.00...I'll never know the exact total cause the insurance paid for it but, from what I've learned it was a pricey venture! Too bad the house was new to begin with and didn't need any of the upgrades...oh well! I'm thankful it's going to be done...before Christmas.
Then (and this is my favorite part) the insurance is sending a cleaner to clean up all the dust and more after they finish the floors. I've never had a cleaner before and I'm really happy they are coming right before Christmas. We come home Wednesday to a new house and it will be clean! YAH!
