Flooding in Houston

It's been a crazy week so far. Monday I cleaned out our old apartment. Bonnie and Greg were working so I was doing it alone. It took a while but I finished it. I was exhausted by the time I finished. Then yesterday I went to work with Bonnie to help her know some tricks of the family I watched. We were going to go home at 1. We did some errands and then tried to get to the new house. Unfortunately, because of the heavy rain, all the roads to our house were flooded. So we turned around and went back to the house we just left. We were going to have to come back anyway for a party they were having at 7. So we just hung out and watched the kids.Bonnie and I were afraid to go home that night after the craziness of the afternoon but by the time the party was over, the water had receded so we could get home. Greg was also able to get home from work with minimal inconvenience. Hopefully, the rest of the week will be low key.

What a crazy day! Glad you were able to get home finally. Hope you're taking it easy today.

I didn't know Bonnie ended up working with the family you'd been sitting for. Their aunt didn't come huh? That's nice, that you could share the popsicle secrets with your sister to make her life easier.

Flooding huh? Is that by your new house or your old house? I'll look over your original post for clarification. So if it's your old house, it's nice you're out of there. If it's your new house, is that going to be a continuing problem?

Sorry you don't have any moving help. I would have helped you if I wasn't working. Did you clean it all by yourself in one day? Where were your visiting teachers? Aren't they supposed to help with that stuff?

We had help moving. I just did the cleaning by myself. I regretted not asking for help later.
