Sorry I haven't been around much. We got hit pretty hard by Hurricane Sandy. When we first evacuated, we wore our welcome out very quickly and had to move again (I have 6 dogs!!) I got someone to take Mona Lisa for a few months and someone to take Moma Mia. We stayed at another home for a few nights and then finally came back home. We had no electric or gas - it was pretty rough. Slowly things are coming back together. the gas and electric is on now, we got our new fireplace gas logs installed, got a new hot water heater installed....although there is a problem with the electric, so no hot water yet
The girl that took Mona Lisa broke her foot, so she's back home again,. We are under demo now and reconstruction might be able to start in a week or so. We are living upstairs in the bedroom.
Here's my beautiful front yard...and it's been cleared once by the town already!!
Before we left, we put the sofa up on top of the coffee table, but the sofa still was in about a foot of water - about 30 inches total in that room.
This is the same room as above after the demo
The kids aren't real happy about living upstairs, but we're all safe and warm and together.
