Moving on!

We’re all doing pretty well considering all that's happened in the last 2 weeks.

My father is renting a house about a 1/4 of a mile away from his house which is good because he's not too far.

They have his bedroom and bathroom totally gutted right down to the rafters and wood. It looks like only a few pieces of structural wood will have to be replaced but overall the firemen did a wonderful job in putting that baby out!

His boiler system and power is back on to the part of the house that got the smoke damage and there are huge industrial fans drying everything out!

We took a ride over on New Years Eve to see and it is just awful! Every time I walk in there I'm in tears!

I'm getting better and over my anger phase about the fire but it seems our Luck Of The Irish strikes AGAIN!

My father called me New Years day to let me know that the house was broken into sometime New Years Eve and things were stolen from him and his tenants upstairs!

Unbelievable! If I could find the person(so) that did this, they would get a major beat down and still might If I EVER find out who it was!

My father has about 2 months before construction starts so I just hope he can find something to keep him busy and out of trouble until then!

Thank you for all the emails wondering how we’re doing!!

On a lighter note we got hammered with snow over the weekend! There is about 3 feet out there and I am just loving it! Jason cleaned out the driveway 3 times yesterday with the last being around 8pm last night. When I took Bella out to the bus this morning I had to shovel us a path out, there was another 6” that fell! Its great:)

I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying their New Year so far:)

How sad that some one could steal from someone who has already lost so much....it makes you wonder how some people live with themselves. Hang in there!

That someone could be so bereft of a basic sense of morality to do that to someone that was already dealing with so much, just makes me upset!!
I'm so sorry that you all are up against so much stress right now. :(
That's a lot of snow! I'm glad you enjoy it, that must make wintertime so much more enjoyable. :)

So glad you have the snow you so love. You can keep it!! How awful that someone can steal especially from someone with so many other problems. They will reap their punishment one day...if you don't get them first!! Take care and hang in there. This too shall pass!!

It is so, so sad the times we are living in that someone would steal from fire victims and I hope they find who is responsible, folks like that make my blood boil! Very precious pic of your kids:)

Hayley @ Prim it Up! said...

Aww Jenn.. I feel so bad for you and your dad and family! The depravity of some people is just unreal isn't it? Nothing like kicking someone when they're down. Wishing you all love and good luck from now on! Huggggs!!!

When I hear about people doing things like that I always wonder how they sleep at night!

We got snow too and the schools around here were canceled today, Samantha was sad because she was supposed to be munchie monster today:)
