The weekend went by way too fast! I didn’t do a ton of stuff so I kind of feel like I wasted it. I haven’t been getting a ton of sleep lately (around 3 to 4 hours a night) because of work and school so I’ve also had a constant migraine. AHHH! Just not good. I can’t wait until my projects and finals are done with.
Update on my closet progress: I haven’t done anything major yet. I started cleaning out my closet and hanging the abundant amount of clean pile of clothes that have been on my closet floor for forever. I’ve been looking for nice/decent bookshelves to put my shoes on, but haven’t found anything I like. I’m wanting something like what’s above. I found something at Walmart, but I’m still looking. My goals for this week are to finish cleaning out my closet and the mess on the floor and start buying stuff.
I need to buy paint for the room that I’m converting into my closet. I think I want yellow and a light gray on the walls. And then I need around 3 bookshelves, nicer hangers, some sort of hanging rack system that the BF can install on the walls, a small couch/chair and a big mirror. I need lots of stuff, but this is all part of my Christmas list.
I also won an awesome giveaway from la vie petite for a gift certificate to Wonton Mommy. I would really recommend checking out her shop, she makes such cute stuff. It came in such cute packaging that I didn’t even want to open it. I got a brooch, flower clip, a newborn headband (for my cousin’s baby), a really cute necklace and a ring! Love it all.
And then the last two pictures are some of the things that I made last week. Stir fry steak and pasta.
Flooding toilet: Also, the toilet in our bathroom flooded and that was quite a joy. It happened right after the BF left for work, so I spent FOREVER trying to get it to stop. I still don’t know why it started flooding because no one used that bathroom since the day before. I was hearing drips and then I walked over and pretty much wanted to jump off a cliff since I knew that I had to unplunge whatever was going on in there.
And no matter what I did, nothing was working. So I eventually had to grab buckets and dump buckets full of water into the shower so that the water would stop overflowing. It completely soaked our entire bathroom and started flooding the basement. WHAT LUCK I HAVE!!!
Then all of a sudden, the toilet flushed and started working again. I’m afraid that our floor and the basement’s ceiling is going to get moldy now. Anyone have any tips with this?
How was your week/weekend?

Good luck with your closet progress! And unfortunately I have no tips about the toilet :/<3Chelsea Elizabeth
My weekend was craaazy busy. But awesome. I just posted about it, actually. Unfortunately, I have no tips about the toilet. I'm good with a plunger, but that's about it. :-
Ack! with the flooding. Mold is scary too. I would definitely turn off the water going to the toilet until someone can look at it. You don't want it to do it again.Do you have a shop vac to vacuum up the water? And a dehumidifier might be a good idea too. Good luck.
Oh no. I hope your bathroom is okay! I hate molding ahhhh…Your pasta looks really good. What dressing do you eat with your salad? I'm hungry now.

Get a cool fan blowing on every surface you can find to dry it out. The basement should be fine and bathrooms should be made to with stand some water, but get it good and dryad out. Trust me I am the queen of floods.
Oh my gosh that's terrible about the flooding!! Good luck with the closet work though!
Bad luck on the toilet, Id say it'd be worth it to rent a dehumidifier for a day or 2…I thought those shoes were all yours!!!! good luck with your room revamp – a whole room wardrobe – wow I cant wait to see a finished pic 🙂
Yikes! We have had plumbing issues in the past and it doesnt really seem bad until it is the TOILET flooding. A few things we learned: turn off the water coming into the toilet immediatly. See if a plunger will get it to drain. If that doesn't work you may need to "snake" the drain (industrial sized ones can be rented for a few hours). Also you can try googling the specific problems you are having (youd be suprised at how many people have had the exact same issue and there is usually good info from these people on how to fix the problem). Good luck!
You need to contact your insurance company. Our ice maker had a slow steady leak (we don't know how long it was leaking)eventually soaked the plywood, the insulation in the basement, soaked into our kitchen cabinets, and hardwood floors. We had to have a company come out and treat for mold. The total cost was around $15,000.00.

Oh no on the flooding toilet!!!! ACK! It sounds like quite the disaster (or potential disaster!).Hope your migraine gets better and you start getting more sleep! XOXOPS: Stop by and join my Stocking Stuffer Swap! Yay !http://bargainingbarrister.blogspot.com/2011/12/stocking-stuffer-swap.html
Use a space heater and/or fan to help dry it out pronto. You don't want to get mold since a lot of insurance policies have a $$ cap on mold issues. I think it takes awhile for mold to really set in so you should be fine if you dry from both top and bottom…

Thanks everyone. It was really gross and the BF found it hilarious when I told him about how I spent my Sunday. We're going to have someone come and look at the toilet and the floor/ceiling.
