Wish you were here

Dear Grammy:

We are having a swell time here in Findlay, Ohio. We have been swimming and playing in our hotel room and eating out of the vending machines.

Did we tell you that the first hotel kicked us out, even after they had told us that we could just add on to our stay if we needed to? I guess those Allstate insurance adjusters were just more important than our family.

Mommy and Daddy have been working tirelessly making phone calls and trips to the house. I have even heard Mommy say a few times that she is having a wonderful time. I don't know if she is being serious or not.

Yesterday, our Nana came to get us so Mommy could direct the crew from church while they threw away half of our possessions in a dumpster. It really is kinda cool to see everything that we had stored in the basement being chucked into a metal container.

The flood was really cool. We were rescued by a big orange dumptruck. Mommy made some comment about her coming into the white trash world in style. I have no idea what she was talking about.

So we will be staying at a hotel for another night, and then we have to find a new one because they might not have enough room for us tomorrow night, either. These darned out of town carpet cleaners and disaster response people. They are ruining my vacation.

I sure am sorry you haven't been here to see all of this. I sure hope that you enjoyed your anniversary trip to Dale Hollow. I know that Daddy really misses you, and wishes you could be here, but he understands that you have your priorities.

I have included some pictures from the fun days we have had. I sure wish you could have seen it all ... but I understand that your husband is more important than us.

I can't wait to see you in a day or so .... sorry to hear that your car broke down after your anniversary trip and before you could get up here. I'm not sure what she meant, but Mommy said that karma is a bitch.

Love, Queen Bee.

Oh. my. heck!!!!!
I'm a little late catching up. what else is new?

anyway, I'm so sorry to hear about the flood.
Good luck with everything and let me know if there's anything I can help with. Probably not seeing as we're 10 states or more away, but you know where I am if you need me.

hotels are annoying, so good luck with that too.

your family is in my thoughts and prayers!!
