So yesterday my Dad called and suggested we ask the insurance to put us all up in hotels. At first I thought it would be more trouble moving, than staying here in this mess. Besides who wants to leave home on Christmas, especially since we have flown our married kids out here to be with us??
Besides, I had already asked the insurance, and they said no.
Then one of the 4 workers taking out our flooring said to me, "Ma'am, you need to make other plans for Christmas. We will be putting 5 industrial fans in here that will be so loud you won't be able to hear yourself talk."
That did it. Several phone calls later (to the insurance) and here we all are at the Hilton Homewood Suites. This is a new, very lovely hotel. We have 3 rooms, all next together. Each complete with a kitchen and living room area.
I keep thinking....and this is all because of one little drip drip drip under our dishwasher! But then I started thinking how often lives are turned upside down because of one little accident (and I don't mean to imply this is one of those times...this isn't a tragedy, of course). I also realize that any problem that can be solved, is really not a problem. Not in the whole scheme of things.
And so we may as well enjoy our stay here, right?
I have time to cook and blog, simultaneously.
While listening to Adele... being I have no Christmas music on my IPOD.
Multi tasking at its finest.
