“CHUCKLING” through it. Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…
“LIFE” can be so, So, SO “CRAZY” sometimes that ya just gotta “CHUCKLE” (laugh)!!! :/ THANK-YOU, JESUS…for “HELPING” TEAM ALLEN to “SEE” a bit of humor in our current situation. I invite you to join me, folks, on a “FUN” trip to…“THE OTHER SIDE”…of “JILL’S WORLD”. Ready??? OKAY!!! (Pppsssttt…that almost sounds like the beginning of a cheer!!!) 😉
HA!!! I am really, Really, REALLY CHUCKLING!!! Right Here. RIGHT NOW. Ya see, earlier this evening Chris, Danielle and my“SELF” sat in the family room of this, our temporary home discussing…and “CHUCKLING” over the recent and…???…???…???… “PECULIAR” events impacting our family amidst the current turmoil we are facing here in FL. Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…
- Our home was flooded by Hurricane Matthew. 🙁 And we recently received word that our contaminated belongings, now a HUGE eye-sore in front of our home…OUT BY THE STREET… will NOT be picked up by the city. 🙁
- We were informed to get a dumpster for our belongings. HA!!! Getting a dumpster here in FL is virtually impossible. Right Here. RIGHT NOW. Either there are NONE…???…???…???… OR they’re so, So, SO expensive that you canNOT afford one!!! SUPPLY & DEMAND, folks!!! BUSINESS 101. 😉
- The original fella we contracted with to complete our home demo. and renovations is no longer with the company. OUCH!!! “HE”…???…???…???…gained my husband’s TRUST, but he is now…???…???…???… “GONE WITH THE WIND” (My late mother’s favorite movie.) R.I.P., mom. I love you. And “IT IS WELL…”
- Our Home Owners insurance will NOT cover the cost of ANYthing because we also have FLOOD insurance!!! And the damage to our home was caused by “FLOODING”…associated with “HURRICANE MATTHEW”!!! SOOoooooo “THEY”…our Home Owner’s insurance… will pay NOTHING!!! OUCH!!!
- We were just notified that our Flood insurance policy does NOT include temporary housing provision in the event of an actual flood in our home. :/ WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!! So now we must pay approximately $4500 for housing…ON TOP of our monthly mortgage payment!!! And that is ONLY “IF” we get back in our house in 6 weeks, as originally stated. I somehow think it will take a bit longer…which will require renting this home a bit longer. Cha-ching, cha-ching!!! :/
- We are getting a bit nervous about the delay in starting the demolition process of our home. We have already made a down-payment to the contractors…using our own money. NOT insurance. They have NOT yet begun the demolition. How long will the demo. and renovations take??? 6 weeks from contract signing…or 6 weeks from demo start date??? What will insurance cover??? How much of a “HIT”…on TOP of our deductible are we gonna get sucker-punched with??? UGH…too many questions and concerns… :/
- And FINALLY…we just received a “DENIAL” from FEMA for disaster relief assistance from the state of FL. “BECAUSE”…???…???…???…we have BOTH Home-Owners AND Flooding insurance policies. DOUBLE :/ :/ (YES, we WILL contest the denial once we receive the written notice via snail-mail.) UGH…EVERYTHING takes so, So, SO MUCH TIME!!! AND POSITIVE ENERGY!!! (Pppsssttt…my tank is running a bit low on energy, Right Here. RIGHT NOW. BUT…???…???…???…it’s completely FULL of FAITH and HOPE!!! AMEN. THANK-YOU, JESUS!!!) BAM!!! I AM READY TO PLAY BALL, folks!!! (Pppsssttt…and “I”…???…???…???…WILL play to WIN!!! WOO-WHOOOOOO!!! GAME ON, SATAN!!!)
“IT IS WHAT IT IS”. AND…???…???…???…I “GET IT”. ALL OF IT!!! Those who are blessed with the ability to bear more of their personal, financial disaster relief burden “SHOULD” bear more of that burden in order to allow organizations to “HELP” those less fortunate. Our Government is NOT an endless money-pit machine. The LESS $ they have…???…???…???…the MORE $ they steal from us via taxes…AS LONG AS BIG GOVERNMENT REMAINS IN POWER.
Get “RID” of BIG GOVERNMENT…???…???…???… “ALLOW”… individuals to prosper and people will return to giving more charitable donations to causes of their personal choices…based on their personal “LIFE” experiences. AMEN. We are who we are, folks, BECAUSE of where we’ve been and how we’ve reacted to situations while simply seeking to survive this thing called…“LIFE”. We The People… want to give our hard-earned $ to those causes that are near and dear to OUR hearts…NOT the Government’s.
SORRY, folks!!! TIME TO QUIT BABBLING!!! Have a blessed evening. G’night.
GO TEAM!!! WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!
P.H.P., folks. People Helping People.
Give the BEST of yourself for “JUST” today…“EVERY” day!!!
ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!! AMEN.
