Remodeling and chaos

 The remodeling of the second bedroom has started.
Things are not going according to plans. I was just planning on painting and changing curtains and lights. Then I moved the bed...and it looked funny, so I lifted the (pretty new) vynil flooring...and ARRRGHHHH damp stains...Not sure where the water damage comes from. Either it's from the small flooding we had a couple years back, or it's coming from the chimney that's right behind that wall. In any case now it's dry but I still have to figure out how to prevent it from happening again...and change the floor.
Which leaves me feeling like this:

Because now I have to remove all the furniture from the room...and buy new vinyl flooring...which is not very hard to fit ...but is reeeeeeeeeeally heavy to carry around. There are stuff all over the house, and the mess makes me very anxious. And also goodbye money :'(

My little springroll
Today is also Pepita's birthday. I don't really know when she was born, but since she arived in February 2012, I chose her a birthday. She was my beloved little girl and I miss her so much.

That's a nasty surprise :( Vinyl doesn't breath at all, so once it gets wet there is no way for it to dry. The chimney might be it, ours also leaked until we had them removed completely.
Good luck with adding a new floor, that is quite the task!
