Back from Vacation

We are back from a great Disneyland vacation! Pictures and details will follow soon.  Sadly, we got a call from a neighbor while we were gone that our house had flooded and was damaged.  We finished out our vacation and came home to see the damage.  We’re now in the process of moving into another house and trying to assess the damage.  Most of our personal property is fine, some papers and books are a total loss, but nothing important like pictures, scrapbooks or Longaberger baskets.  So while we’re dealing with having to unpack our whole house just in time for the holidays, I may not be able to blog as much as before.  In fact, this is the first time I’ve even powered up our computer since we left.

All of our house is packed up and waiting to be moved into the new house, which will occur Monday and Tuesday.  We’ll work Wednesday at getting the bedrooms suitable to move in and hopefully be out of our hotel on Thursday.  We’ve already ordered our Thanksgiving dinner from the Officer’s Club on base, so we’ll be over-stuffed as usual this year, in spite of the circumstances.

On top of all this, I’m fighting a cold and Nicholas is cutting two molars.  I’m little tired and worn out, but ok.

Did you hear on the news about a cruise ship having 700 people come down with some virus?  My parents were on that ship!  My dad got sick and was quarantined, but it sounds like they are ok, too.

More Mac and Cheese, please!

  • Oh my goodness!! I am so sorry to hear about your house being flooded. I’m thankful that nothing of value was damaged and that your family was safe. The rain in this area was certainly strong while you were gone. Its such a nice thing that you can get into new housing so quickly but I’m sure you aren’t looking forward to such a “quick move”. Hope you have a peaceful Thanksgiving.

  • Your family sure is facing some difficult times and I will keep you all in my thoughts during this holiday. Best wishes to you all and hope your able to find a little time for relaxation.
