Water Leak

While I was in the hospital, my mom came over to the house to clean. She told me that she thought we had a water leak and to watch a certain spot in the house. A week ago, I was working around the house and decided to steam the floors. Before I steamed this particular spot on the floor, I decided to touch it to see if the wood floors were warping. Sure enough...it was. So I thought the leak was coming from our dishwasher. I'll spare you all of the painful details, but it turned out to come from a joint that is supposed to be above the slab but it was actually in our slab.

So I packed up the kiddos and headed down to my parents' house for the weekend. I did not want them here for the repair. They had to bring in a jackhammer and pull up part of the floor to fix the leak. We are back home for now because Brian has treated all of the exposed mold with Tea Tree Oil. We are going to get all new wood flooring out of the deal and a couple of new cabinets. We'll have to leave for at least another week when they finally get here to fix the damage caused by the water. We've wanted new floors since we moved in, so we like that!
