It Ain't Pretty

I'm used to showing you things I like, but today is not that day. These older homes are often referred to as "money pits", and this one is no exception.

Sitting downstairs today, I heard a loud boom as well as felt vibrations coming from upstairs. It felt to me what I believe an earthquake would feel like. I quickly ran upstairs to this.

Imagine if I was sleeping in the bed. I would have had a heart attack. 

Evidently, moisture is getting into the ceiling from the roof (no DUH), and it caused the mess.

So now, J & I are sleeping in the guestroom.

And the maids were here yesterday. Ugh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

It Ain't Pretty, y'all!


  1. life happens...hope you are able to have it fixed soon.

  2. Oh no Ron!! No fun at all. Sorry you guys have to deal with that. Brought back memories from a few weeks back when I fell thru the attic ceiling while we were cleaning it out.

  3. Wow! I feel for you, Ron. A couple of weeks ago, at 3 a.m., I heard water dripping. We got up to find water leaking from the a/c unit in the attic. The ceiling was bulging, about to burst. (Apparently, it had been leaking for awhile.) We caught it just in time; but, still had to replace the drywall.

  4. Good morning, well, not so good morning, Ron. Wow, that is quite a mess. :( I hope you have a trusty carpenter to fix that soon. xoxo

  5. Oh boy- time for a roof inspection and maybe a new roof! Glad it didn't happen while you were in bed! That would certainly be a rude awakening!!

  6. Oh Ron!!! Hope that will not cost a lot to fix. Try and have a good week end.

  7. Oh my word, that is scary. So glad you weren't in that room. Now for tons of money to fix the problem. So sorry.

  8. old and new...patching patching patching. ha. But how frightening! I would have thought...thief.

  9. UGH! My house is the same way. Home ownership is often over rated :-)
