Water Leaks And Our Crazy Remodel

So for the better part of the last 11 months we have been repairing ALOT of damage from water leaks.
Leak one - little B's bathroom. Her toilet overflowed instead of cycling for TWO hours while we were at a birthday party. Good think we didnt go shopping after the party!! This leak took out her closet, bathroom floor and hallway. It leaked through the a/c vents and ceiling. The a/c vents were right above my work laptop. The ceiling leak was above the dining table 5 feet away.
 About 3 weeks later
Leak two - 6am we hear a POP and went back to sleep after listening to see if it was our imagination. Turns out it was the garbage disposal short circuiting from the backed up sink that drained into the dishwasher. The plumber said we are lucky we didnt have a fire.

Leak three - 6pm the SAME DAY - Master toilet overflowed. I heard dripping noises so I ran upstairs to see what it was. Sure enough water EVERYWHERE. Luckily the water had stopped about 12" from our new flooring we were having installed.

After the second set of leaks we lived without a kitchen for 6 weeks

I washed dishes in this tub for 6 weeks. We had to get new cabinets and counters which took 4 weeks to order and another 1-2 weeks to install.

Its one thing to have a remodel and be able to plan for it. Its another thing to have a remodel happen to you and throw your life into living craziness. :)
