I've decided that I need to update more often, even if I'm not actually doing new things. (Sorry, I blame work.) Let me tell you about my day - or at least the portion that happened before my alarm went off.
I don't believe I've ever talked about this, but I have no problems washing dishes. I don't dry them - I stack them in the drainboard, and they stay there until a) I have to kill some time in the kitchen, or b) I need to use them again.
So it's winter, and naturally there is snow outside. We didn't get our usual January thaw, but yesterday it started raining.
This morning at 4 a.m. (exactly) I heard rattling in the drainboard. I was very puzzled. And sleepy, let's not forget that.
I got up, and asked my sister what on earth she was doing. She told me that the basement was leaking.
I went downstairs. There was water on the floor - not over the whole basement, but enough to get my feet wet as I walked around.
I helped Wanda get all of her stuff off the floor. (One would think that perhaps that the floor wouldn't be the best place to store stuff, but apparently Wanda disagrees.) While she finished up, I went upstairs and made up another bed for her.
I don't know what happened exactly. My theory is that the rain plus the melting snow caused water to leak in the windows. It rained all day today, and everything is dry now.
I still don't know how rattling dishes was supposed to help.
