I hadn't even thought of a camera...I lost my point and shoot and my point and click...I wonder if insurance will cover these (or enough for one) before the baby comes :(
me and my toddler were home...and naked getting ready for a bath...I managed to get a pair of pants on and a zip up fleece, call 911 and wrap my daughter in a blanket, let the dog out of her crate and run out the back door barefoot before it was totally engulfed
the phone cut out as the center wall went up where the telecomunications lines were just as I got outside
I think because I can access receipts online easily I can get most of the diapers replaced in time..and planned to use sposies for a couple of weeks anyway...
as trivial as it is I'm really upset about the stroller because I got such a great deal on it and can't babywear (herniated discs in my upper spine)
I had just bought and was still in the box a glider/cradle for as a sort of co-sleep...my husband has apnea so I won't co-sleep officially but like baby right next to the bed within reach.
my neighbors are really mainstream more so than me..so maybe just layette items?
The same neighbor went and spent 500 dollars on clothes for us and scored a good weeks worth of maternity clothes from her sister in law who was about my size and just had a baby. I've never even met this woman before this. I guess she was stuck on the road because of fire personel and watched the house go. If all of the videos and pictures online didn't have the exact address I'd link them here. The town set up a donation center for us. I am incredibly overwhelmed by how generous and caring people have been. It seems like it souds flat when i type it out but I'e spet the last few days crying from the generosity of people more so than over the loss of our home.
I just realized last night a goat hair blanket from iraq went up totally last night
"significant house fire" does seem most appropriate...does this ever start to feel better? I am of course grateful no one was hurt including emergency responders...but at the same time, though it was "just stuff" it was our entire lives worth of stuff kwim??
theyre thinking 6mths to a year before we're back in the house...I'm so grateful we for whatever reason were really highly insured for the "loss of use" portion of our policy or we'd be up such a creek right now
we just bought the house last June...the baby's room was almost done.we had just gotten the dining room all repainted and furnished, my antique rug has just been cleaned and repaired...I had planted all kinds of flowers last fall for spring..Im not going to see the magnolia tree bloom...I cant plant my vegetable garden
its all so surreal
