We just received the invoice for the cleanup and the estimate for the restoration of the water damage to our ceiling and walls. $11,189.54! I'm in a state of shock, and that's in addition to what we've already paid the plumber. I sure hope our insurance covers most of this. We already know that in the next couple of years we'll have to replace the a/c units for $8000 and another $8000 for the roof. We'll do well if we break even when it's time to sell the house in a few years. Of course, I'm always the pessimistic one about owning a house. I always prefer to rent because it's someone else's headache when things go wrong. It's not like we ever treat any of the houses like it's ours anyway, no painting in colors we might prefer, no pictures on the wall, that kind of thing.
