On December 17th I go home for Christmas break. I am looking forward to the change from class and exam; home is always pleasant and restful. I leave Statesboro early on the 17th to take full advantage of the sparse early morning traffic and to get home before lunch! The first thing I always do when I get home is to take all of my laundry upstair and let my mom begin the long process of washing three week worth of laundry. Well, when I get home, Mom is not home from work yet, so I begin the laundry. I separate all of my clothes in five heaping pile on the laundry room and kitchen floor, set the water dial on cold, and put the water temperature dial on cold/cold. Then I grab a bite to eat and run downstairs to catch up on all of the Soap I miss while I am studying so hard for exam. The first load finishes, and I run upstair to put it in the dryer and start the second load in the washer. This process repeats about five times, until the last load is in the washer. Then I hear the dryer go off, so I go upstair to put the final load in the dryer. I cannot even step into the kitchen because there are two inch of water on the kitchen floor. Of course, I panic! What can I do? I sop up some of the water with a towel—no use. I then get a mop and bucket and slowly, but surely, get all of the water up. Then I call my mom at work. She says that the repairman was just there, so she calls him immediately! Then I decide to go down to my room and relax after my taxing time with the washer. As soon as I step in, I see my ceiling is sagging, and there are puddle of water in various place in my room. I do not even think to check my room, even though it is downstair right under the flooded laundry room. Well, that begins the long process of redoing my room. So how did you spend your Christmas break?
