Under Construction

Or should I say destruction? The contractors were at the house today and they pulled out all the rest of the carpet, padding, cabinets and some of the subfloor. Dust bowl comes to mind. Our insurance approved our claim and will pay for damages. A huge,huge answer to prayer. Our furniture needs repair and we will be compensated for it after depreciation is figured in. It won't be enough for replacement if necessary but we are still thankful for not having to cover all the expenses ourselves. And we have to keep remembering that it's just stuff. We can't take it with us when this life is over. We should start seeing some construction and installation soon, which will be exciting. Our spirits are better and it feels there is light at the end of the tunnel for the unpacking stage. If you remember from previous posts, it was Howard's basketball team that packed our whole house up and moved it in about 3 hours. Then things from my parents house were added on top and now more things from inside the house were moved out and added to the pile. So our garage is something comparable to a rock formation with multiple layers! We again have to shuffle things around tomorrow to accommodate the construction. It's like playing chess, right? Or maybe sardines.
