Getting back in the swing of things....

Posted Friday, August 22, 2008, at 10:33 PM

With summer coming to a close soon, many of us are getting back into the swing of school, homework routines, and bedtimes. My 3 weeks of summer didn't exactly pan out as I had planned; it did come with an apartment fire, an unexpected move as a result, and lots of chaos.

On the exact day that I was celebrating my final summer presentation being complete, my husband hurt his knee at work. The next day, I completed my final research for the summer, and our apartment building caught fire in the night...

The good news is, no one was hurt in the fire, however, 3 apartments burnt and close to 20 others were damaged, displacing about 15-20 families. Our apartment had extensive smoke damage, but thankfully, no burn. That's when the long, slow, and frustrating process began. We're still dealing with it all, thankfully we had renters insurance. Yesterday, we excitedly moved from our temporary business suite into our new apartment, and it is starting to feel like home.

Hopefully, I'll get back in the swing of blogging, one of these days...
