An update

Hey all! 1G1D1Y here with an update:

FAB, hubs and babygirl are comfortable in a nice hotel... a little stressed and trying hard not to give in to the junk food/comfort food cravings. Little man is staying with his friend for the night and step daughter is back with her mom.

The insurance adjusters took an emergency load of their clothes to the dry cleaner and I washed a few loads here this morning for them. An air scrubber has been set up, pets are going to be groomed on Monday when the rest of the world has recovered from New Years. Anyway you cut it, FAB and hubs are going to be out the $1000 deductible.

Everyone is safe and sound, and that's what is important. Unfortunately that means FAB and hubs are without internet access for the next few days unless they head back to the house for some work. Hard to do while the air scrubbers are working away at the smell until Tuesday.

The family who lost the most, where the fire started are a harsh reminder why it's so important to have tenants/home insurance. The family of 6 have been left without a home and the fire has been determined as wiring + years of grease in the vent above the stove hood. They will have to rebuild from near scratch because of water and smoke damage.

Keep safe, have a great start to the new year and above all... love the ones you're with~!


  1. Thanks for the update, 1G1D1Y! Continuing to send positive thoughts FAB's way.

  2. Oh my goodness! I don't even know what to say...

    I'm certainly glad everyone is okay. After all, it's just "stuff," but it sure sucks to be displaced and out the money.

    Hoping 2011 brings lots of good things to everyone!

  3. Thank you for rescuing FAB's animals and for being there for her during such a crisis; you are a good friend to her, obviously. Sending good thoughts your way....

  4. thanks for the update. they are lucky to have you in their support network. I hope the community can pull together for the other family and help out. Or maybe get Ty Pennington's crew to come up that way!

  5. Thanks for the update, praying for them!!

  6. Thanks so much for keeping us updated. Tell them my thoughts and prayers are with them!

  7. I just read this, i am so grateful to hear everyone is ok, and i am really sorry to hear this happened. I hope things get sorted out really quickly and i hope to talk to FAB again soon
