May 17: Basement Drying and Investing Catch-Up

May 18th, 2014 at 10:41 am

My plan for today was to deal with our flooded-floor basement before any mold developed, and to bring my investing old paperwork up do date and set up a new system for it. I got it all done and still had time left over for fun.

Over my early morning coffee, I did the final editing on my blog article "Should I Still Work at Investing?". Then breakfast and off to "work."

8:00am to 12:00noon
-- first thing (of course) I did the am critter care
-- it took me 2 hours, but I got that basement dry as a bone! I also set up 2 dehumidifiers as an extra help.
-- got halfway through my investing paperwork revamp

12:00noon to 5:30pm
(This is my first day on my "new" time block plan)*
-- lunch and a DVD lecture on pre-prehistoric man (The First Human Diaspora)
-- posted "Should I Still Work at Investing?" on my SavingAdvice blog
-- wrote and posted a May 16 "what did I do today" blog memo
-- played Pacific War**
-- watched a movie ("Purpose")

5:30pm to 7:00pm
-- worked some more on forms and plans for my new approach to reinvesting***
-- watered all those plants (again) and put the barnyard to bed

7:00pm to ...
-- dinner, another prehistory DVD lecture (The First Europeans), and more Pacific War playing

    What happened in your basement?

    Sorry about your flooding.

    Hi, Joan and rob...

    It was not all that bad. We had a long and heavy rain event. The basement has an outside entrance down a flight of stairs in a concrete well-like space. There is a drain at the bottom of that space; it was totally clogged. Therefore, the rain built up at the bottom of the stairwell until it spilled over the door threshold and in to the basement floor... for hours. Frown

    No major damage to anything. Just a royal pain in the butt because if we do not dry it up, the basement will grow mold all over the ceiling and that is even more of a pain in the butt to deal with.

    Big Grin
