I decided the flooding downstairs wasn't going to evaporate on its own fast enough, so last night I was up 'til 12:40 with the shop vac, sucking water out of the carpet. (Jamie said I was vacuuming for like... 8 hours.) It worked a lot better than I expected though; I must have dumped at least 5 gallons overall.
But now the whole house smells like ass.
At least I got a good workout, moving the exercise bike, treadmill, chair and piano so I could vacuum under them.
