You may have read on my blog before, here and here that I am still trying to recover from an upstairs bathroom flood, which caused a waterfall in my living room for over 5 1/2 hours, just 5-days before Christmas last year. On top of this monumental disaster, I am trying to de-clutter and re-organize my home. I live in the house I grew up in with my daughter Rory.
