Last Friday I wrote that I had a heavy heart.
Today I am just spent. Spent. Literally I’ve got nothing. Nothing.
Around noon on Sunday I returned to Nashville to be greeted by a few inches of standing water in my basement apartment. My roommate and I spent the better part of the day futilely sweeping water and salvaging items that might be affected if the water rose dramatically.
Monday, thankfully, the waters began to recede and a team of friends appeared to help move all my stuff to a temporary home and to tear out carpet and flooring. We got everything clean and ready for the professionals to takeover, but it became obvious that the space won’t be livable for awhile. Bummer.
Here is what I know:
I have a lot I need to figure out. Most importantly, I need to find new place to live. Quickly. Like by May 15 quickly. (If anyone has any ideas I am looking for a 1-2 bedroom place in Nashville that allows a medium sized dog.)
The next few weeks are going to be filled with uncertainty. Unfortunately uncertainty isn’t really my strong-suit.
I am blessed because the majority of my things are safe and dry. There are thousands of people who lost everything.
And lastly…I am spent. Oh, I said that already…twice.
