Wet feet....Guest Suite

Good morning. 

So I will start with what happened most recently. 

Last night we went to a fireside last night at he Annandale stake center. Jenny oaks baker performed with her 4 kids. It was really impressive. I think I was more impressed with the kids. The oldest was only 14ish. I also got to see a  bunch of the members from Warrenton. It was awesome to talk to some people I know. It's hard to believe I was there a year ago. 

So back up a little bit before that. We got back to the apartment right before we were planning on leaving to go to the fireside, we walked in I took of my shoes and walked into the bedroom and all of the sudden my feet were wet. Now obviously the first thing I did was look up for a leak but it was coming up through the floor. We went down stairs and talked to our concierge and he said he will have someone look at it. 

When we got back from the fireside we got into our apartment and there were just 2 fans on the floor. It didn't look like any of he carpet had been lifted up and we knew it had to come from somewhere. We asked the office if they had stopped the leak and they told us it came from the air conditioner. Well the closet from there to the wet spot was about 12 feet....obviously something wasn't right with how they decided to fix it. We moved our beds into the living room and basically everything else except for the stuff on the far wall. We then proceeded to lift up the carpet all the way to the wall where the ac unit is. GUESS WHAT!?!? WATER!!! All the way along the base of the wall. Not just in the bedroom, but also the living room. We got the maintenance people again and we tore out all of the padding and threw it away. We cut the carpet going from the living room to the bedroom so we could get underneath. We don't think they took into account the possibility of mold growing. 

Since our apartment is a construction zone now, they let us spend the night in their guest suite. It was basically a hotel room except bigger and nicer. They said they are going to get the carpet guys in there today and check for mold and make sure it's all dry then lay new padding. We were hoping that they would just replace the carpet as well but that would involve much more extensive moving and wouldn't be worth it. Hopefully it will be done by tonight but we will see. And if not, another night in the guest suite. 

Everything else pales in comparison really. We taught a lesson to Prasad this week. They picked their wedding date back to August so that will postpone his baptism again. We are going to keep working with them, but we will see how it goes. 

We walked to a bridge in our area that crosses from Virginia to Maryland and check that out. They made a park underneath it with some playgrounds as well as some basketball courts. Pits nice because it always shady and keeps it relatively cool. We got to walk up onto it and take some pictures. 

We haven't been able to contact Cornelius lately. Every time we call his phone it's off. We are going to keep trying. That's our week in a nutshell. I will send some pictures right after I send this off. 

Love you!
