Stupid Leaking Walls

So while standing in front of the mirror a couple days ago...I noticed my foot was getting wet. First I thought Kieran spilled some water, but then as I moved over, the floor was still wet. Well, turns out water is leaking in and down the wall of our closet. We cleaned everything out of the closet tonight and I had a box of pictures and other memories on the closet floor. Some of them were wet(but will dry out), and some are ruined. A few that are very dear to me are now destroyed. Pictures of my Grandparents wedding...ruined. You can't even see an image. They are just a brownish red. They must have reacted weird to the water. They are so old. Now they are forever gone. I can't get any new ones. I won't be able to show my kids and grand kids these pictures that I saved for them. So anyway, we threw a lot of stuff out. Josh was on the roof getting rid of the ice that caused this and is going back up tomorrow after work.

Aww sweetie, so sorry you were not able to rescue your photos from the water damage. I'm sure it must be really upsetting to lose something you can't replace. Hopefully you still have many memories stored in your mind and heart that you can pass on. :)

I'm so sorry.. That really sucks. But it's a great reminder to BACK UP ALL OF YOUR PICTURES! You never know what can happen! If you don't have a scanner, they'll do it for you at Wolf or you can do it yourself at places like Walmart, Walgreens or Target.

That is such a bummer, oh my goodness. You must be heartbroken! I'm so sorry that happened to you.

And now I feel incredibly guilty that I tagged you in a little photo-related game. You can check out my blog for details, but certainly no obligation to do it!

Sending happy vibes your way!
