THE FLOOD, 3/28/14

“WHOOOOSH”… the sound of running water… sends my husband into “RED-ALERT” mode, approximately 11:15 pm, Fri. 3/28/14.  The Master bathroom floor immediately covered with warm water!!!  Bedroom carpet absorbing this warm water quickly!!!  TOTAL CHAOS AT THE ALLEN HOUSEHOLD…A-G-A-I-N!!!

Christopher Allen… my husband… my “ROCK,” (Captain of team Allen ) quickly races out to shut off the water supply!!!  Chris, Chase, Danielle, and myself throwing towels down to soak-up water from the floors…A.S.A.P.!!!  We then move furniture, accordingly.  Contact plumbing company to schedule service… A.S.A.P!!!

The chaos continues at the Allen household, folks.  “Demolition crew” to return in the a.m.  I am volunteering at the “FL Mud Run, 2014″… beginning at 7 in the a.m., to be held at The St. Johns County Fairgrounds in FL.   Chris and Chase will assist a Scout with his Eagle project in the a.m.  Think I’ll have to give-in right now (1 a.m.) to catch a few winks before the… MUD RUN, 2014!!!  Hhhmmm…”Mud Run”… quite appropriate, huh?  HELP!!!  OUR HOUSE IS FLOODING…ON ANASTASIA ISLAND!!!  😉

Calling it a night… “GO TEAM ALLEN,” (while yawning).  It COULD have been DISASTROUS …here…at the Allen household!  BUT…”Team Captain, Christopher Allen” KEPT OUR HOUSE…ABOVE WATER!!!



HEY EVERYBODY…  I just made a profound realization…

“LIFE WOULD BE SO MUCH EASIER IF WE JUST DIDN’T HAVE TO DEAL WITH OTHER PEOPLE”!!!  ( Okay…maybe I’ve said that a few times already)  This is so, so true, folks.  I am amazed by the miscommunications that occur between ALL of us… EVERY DAY!!!  “I” always know EXACTLY what I mean when I write or say something, however, OTHERS DON’T!!! 

I have an idea, folks…How about making “POSITIVE” assumptions first… and then… “ASK QUESTIONS”… to clearly define situations before responding in a negative manner?  This is difficult…I KNOW!!!  I lived many years as a pessimist.  EVERYTHING…WAS NEGATIVE!!!

Information is misunderstood… SO OFTEN.  People respond, prematurely, in a negative manner that quickly causes controversy.  A “Fight or Flight” response occurs, folks get angry or upset, and it’s always easier to cut all ties than to attempt clarifying information.  How many relationships do you think have been ended, UNNECESSARILY, due to misunderstandings?  ALOT!!!  This is so sad…BUT TRUE!!!

LIFE IS SO DIFFICULT, folks.  FOR ALL OF US!!!  P.H.P.People Helping People.  Give the best of yourself for “JUST” today… EVERY DAY!!!  “Try” to clear up misunderstandings…immediately.  We all deserve the benefit-of-the-doubt, at least once!!!  Right???
