girls.. thank you so very much for all your lovely warm wishes...
It has been truly a stressful weekend for my husband, the kids and me.
On Friday morning we were told that our insurance company may not pay for the damage. It all depended WHERE exacltly this suer pipe broke. After the plumer was here, we found out that we are covered to the most part (better than nothing at all). Gee... from all the stuff what happened.. i think i can be lucky it broke on the right place.
Cleaning people were working all weekend, on Friday they were even here and had the pumps running until 12 am. The stuff needs to be cleaned out otherwise we will get mold in the house. The waterheater broke because of the water in the motor - no hot water for 1 day :-) the carpet is already out and so are parts of our drywalls (top parts stay)
A the moment i take a short break - i wanted to tell you guys i read your messages and iam touched of your sweet comments!
Currently we have a crew of clean up ladies here and we need to go through every single item, ( i mean tiny things like some stamps i had in a storage unit or all the little toys,Legos, tools, clothes, spare bedroom - you can imagine.. it was a basement) it must all be labeled and eigher cleaned (smooth surface) or thrown out It all needs to go in a large container in the drive way and than when the insurance person comes the value of our things will be determinded.
My husband helped me get some of my stamping things upstairs into a small room the boys usually use. I hope to be able to get back my beloved hobby by the end of this week??????????? It will be nice to just get the worries out of my head for a brief moment and color some cute images in. All this stuff and worries about the expenses is really freaking me out.
well.. iam off to go back downstairs.
