The Weekend From Hell

As anyone who's a regular reader of this blog knows, we have a lake lot down at Richland Chambers Lake with a 37 foot camper and other assorted toys.  Due to taking Katniss as a foster dog on 4-3-13, we weren't able to camp there in all of 2013.  (She was so sick, and then she didn't get along with Macadoo).
Early in 2013 we had a horrible storm that cratered our boat and our lantern. We got those fixed, but didn't realize our camper apparently had damage.

A summer went by, a fall and a winter.  Katniss got adopted and finally we were able to go to our camper this past weekend.  Finally!  I was SO excited.

Apparently all this time ago, we got roof damage.  There was a leak, and over the hot summer, the leak and wet wood and carpet grew fungus.  Mushroom and other nasty stuff, to be exact.  I gagged.


Here is what I found INSIDE our beautiful camper.

 Needless to say, I went online and realized what had happened.  Extensive repairs, new walls and floor and carpet and pad.  We'll have to haul it somewhere and have it fixed.  Hoping insurance will cover this. Aware that we won't be camping for a long while until it's fixed.

The rest of it - broken dog water jug, the water getting cut off, Lonnie losing his cell phone (we found it), bug bites, cutting my leg on a dirty piece of metal, only completed the weekend from hell.

I got home, did a bunch of laundry, and drank.  Because really, what else can you do?
