The day started out with the glorious sound of the dog getting ready to vomit on the bed.
Hoping that would not set the tone for the rest of the morning, the coffee machine, dishwasher and washing machine got a stern warning. They are all behaving.
The weather here has been really crazy. We have not really had any winter yet and now my Spring bulbs are starting to grow. By the time it finally snows it may be doing so on fresh Jonquils and Tulips! Today, though is gonna be an AVERAGE day...according to the weatherman.
The sky looks it's normal self ...nothing remarkable.
Then the heavens parted.
I could hear the angels singing.
Glory! Glory! Glory!
Imagine a Monty Python Montage without a giant foot squashing me to death.
The sun shines a little bit brighter today.
The day has finally arrived! We have finally settled with our insurance company.
If you are familiar with the Southern expression "fit to be tied," that is a mild way to describe our feelings in dealing with our present insurance company. I have a lot of words for them, and none of them are ones I even feel comfortable typing.
It has been over 18 months since our fire, and we now are free of the paperwork nightmare that has been our existence for the past year and a half.
No more keeping every receipt!
No more noting inventory numbers for each item on every receipt!
No more spreadsheets of an entire household of lost items!
No more spreadsheets of money spent cross-referenced to the receipt and all of the other spreadsheets!
No more internet searches to prove values!
No more making copies of every receipt, spreadsheet, and internet source!
No more staring at 300 pictures of the burned out remains of our home!
We are free! We can make purchases how we want and when we want. My hubby can reclaim what was once his office, but is currently devoted solely to insurance paperwork.
It is the most marvelous feeling to have this part of the nightmare behind us!!
I would have a bonfire with the mountains of paperwork, but that is too ironic to even be slightly funny.
