We finally received the report from our insurance adjuster. Just under $33,000 in damages, at least for now. They may find more as they go along and start repairs. Well, start is a relative term. At this point we still have no check, even initial one to begin repairs. Once we finally get it, we have to have the couple we're buying our house from sign it as well before we're able to get it into the bank. Then, at that point, we have to wait 10-15 days (possibly up to 20 because of the size) for the bank to clear it because it is an insurance check, and the insurance company may decide to yank it and refuse to pay it to us. (Ummm... if that happens, I'm goint so scream!) We are starting to go into the "rainy" season here in East Texas, where we have fronts come through and there's just enough moisture coming up from the Gulf to cause it to rain every couple of days. The glass guy needs dry weather to get the glass installation. The roofing people will need dry weather to put the new roof on. Siding will need it dry too, as well as entire window units that will have to be put in. We'll be lucky to have anything done after Thanksgiving, if not Christmas (then no one will be working).
I'm trying to get things wrapped up to put my whole store on sale at SSB. I need to get something put together for it and upload it to the store, and then anyone and everyone will be able to buy my entire store! At this point this is the only way I can come up with to help offset the $1350 (because they increased our insurance limit this last renewal period) deductible we're having to eat before anyone will begin doing anything for repairs.
I'm stressed beyond limits. My hair is falling out. I don't sleep. I'm so depressed it takes everything I have to get up and get William ready for the day for school. All I want to do is cry, and all anyone around here is doing is praying for rain. I don't want any rain, nor wind, nor hail for a very long time.
