Cloudy day...

Remember I mentioned my neighbor's construction last night?  About 15 minutes after I posted last nights entry my dog yelped at the back door.  Unusual at night, but sometimes we forget the last pee run of the night, so it does happen occasionally. 

I went to let her out and found that my neighbor and his construction men were outside.  That started the dog barking, unfortunately.

The worse part is that my poor neighbors had water flooding into their basement badly.  They were pumping out the mud pit and their basement all at the same time. 

I didn't mention before that they just had their first baby a while back, Baby G is now 7 months old.  The lights were on upstairs in the baby's room.  I guess it was a long tough night for everyone. 

I didn't get much sleep until after 3am when they seemed to be done with most of whatever they had to do.  I have been through construction before, and I know what it is like.  I said a few prayers for them last night!

Be well,
Dawn

Oh no!  We have had that unfortunate experience.  We had water gushing down the hall and through our entire ranch house!  Mr. was re-doing plumbing in the bathroom and forgot to cap off the main...not good. ;)  C.  http://journals.aol.com/gdireneoe/thedailies

What a good neighbor you are. You didnt get mad for all that going on, you were sympathetic. Hope your Sunday is going well.

Your poor neighbors! Maybe a plate of cookies might be a much appreciated thing about now....

Can't imagine construction, flooding and a baby.
