I have been yawning all day!! Just too much so do and it all needs to be done now! Besides continuing to catalog everything that was ruined in the flood, I still have laundry to finish up from our Florida vacation the week before the flood. But ... Read more

Sunday, September 09, 2007      0 comments

I have been to 3 air shows before this one, all 3 at Andrews AFB. Now mind you, I have thoroughly enjoyed the 3 at Andrews but this one at Oceana yesterday was beyond my wildest expectations! We had bought tickets to sit in the VIP section and I... Read more

So I felt there was just too much to do at home before leaving for Virginia Beach for the air show on Saturday. This evening I moved any home-made VHS tapes and anything else of any sentimental or cash value that survived the flood and were stil... Read more

I had been happily operating under the notion that my 30th high school reunion would not take place for a while, like fall 2008. But no! I got an email last night that our 30th reunion will be during the Homecoming game with a section of bleache... Read more

Last week while we were recovering from the flood, my sleep schedule got completely thrown out of whack. So now I am trying to get to where I should be. And I have been trying to squeeze in workouts whenever I can. But that is kind of tricky as ... Read more

At this point in the game, I have resigned myself to that fact that it will be a very long time before my house is back to normal. Since the insurance has washed their hands of this mess and the builder is stalling, it looks like Christmas will ... Read more
First day back at work since flood; hard to concentrate!!

So hunny and I decided that we would take a break from the cleanup and go to work. Regrettably not much is happening on the home front as far as the building contractor trying to make his financial restitution with us. The HOA rep said to go ahe... Read more

It is just an absolutely beautiful day outside in central Virginia. There is hardly a cloud in the sky and the temperature is warm, yet comfortable. Earlier this week, the original plan from several weeks ago had been to go to Busch Gardens in W... Read more

So how do you clean up a dusty, dirty, sometimes moldy basement when you also suffer from severe allergies and you were already in bad shape from the ragweed to begin with? You get a respirator. And then you also get gloves because some of the b... Read more
Still cleaning up mess; crying over what has been destroyed

Today as I threw out the ruined box of the game Mystery Mansion, it really hit me hard how absolutely absurd this whole flood has been. A few years ago during the night as hurricane Isabel pounded central Virginia (spawning tornadoes, etc) and w... Read more

Back on August 7, I had posted on a team that my goal for the challenge was to: cut back on refined (unhealthy sugar), get more sleep, and get those workouts in as much as possible to also get rid of belly tire! Well, now it has been over ... Read more
Still cleaning up; construction company not owning up!
Thursday, August 30, 2007      1 comments

Not only is the construction company involved in this subpar when it comes to their work, they are equally subpar in mopping up after their messes! None of the families involved have the exact precise insurance rider to cover this; so all 3 of u... Read more

It is still very difficult at home with going thru the ruined stuff and it smells kind of funky in the basement. But thanks to our getting Servicemaster in here so quickly, mold and its associated smells (as well as damage) are not a problem. Ou... Read more

You know how people seem to react to emergencies in one of 2 ways: they either fall apart during the crisis or they keep their head on straight during the crisis only to finally fall apart once the emergency has passed. Well, I must be the secon... Read more
Awful News: Basement flooded; most everything a total loss!!
Monday, August 27, 2007      1 comments

There is a construction site above the hill behind my house. Apparently they have been lax in the upkeep of their runoff pond. During the storm we had last night, the overflow pond breeched and the surge took its toll on my house and the both ho... Read more
