Hurricane Ike – Our Home — 11 Comments

  1. There is a light at the end of the tunnel! I think BB is holding it. I hope y’all have taken precautions will doing this work. I found out the hard way, without a respirator, which I don’t have (dust mask didn’t help) I cannot do this type of work any longer. I can offer only encouragement, and that you have.

  2. What a great helper! Its nice to have help from someone that is so willing to work hard! Those kind of people are worth millions! If I didnt have 5 kids to wrangle – I would have so been there BW!!!! LOVE YOU!!!

  3. Yes, Steffi, we wore masks, but some of the dust still got through. We also wear rubber gloves.

    Heidi, I know you’d be here if you could. But that sweet lil Milk Dud needs you right now and this is no place for children! Just your words and Steff’s words of encouragement help a lot!

  4. Getting started seems like the worst part of it. I remember when one of my libraries flooded, 4 feet up the walls. We did the same thing you’re doing–cut out the damaged part of the walls, washed everything down, hosed it off, dried it with big industrial fans. All the furniture and most of the books were lost, of course. It’s hard, hard work, but just trying to figure out where to start was the hardest part. You will get there, and good help like BB is sent from God.

  5. What a daunting job. But now you’ve got heart in the friendship of a wonderful giving person.
    And to think, some people don’t believe in Angels.

  6. Reading this and seeing what you are facing is overwhelming…have you thought of submitting a tape to Extreme Home Makeovers??? 🙂

    How wonderful to have BB’s vigor and enthusiasm to kindle the strength you need to accomplish yet another miracle in your home! There is such encouragement in walking side-by-side, isn’t there? And I concur with the warnings to be careful with the masks and mold!

    Praying for you!

  7. Sent from God, angelic, and side-by-side encouragement. That is what BB was to me these past 3 days.

    Vance, you are the third person who has mentioned the idea. But I don’t want or need an “extreme” home. The people who receive those new homes have way more need than we, and many of them live such sacrificial lives and often their homes offer community services to underprivileged. Thank you for thinking of us, though. And the prayers are very welcome! Love ya!

  8. Nice. Send her up here. I’ll just leave she can work that fire brewed magic without my interference. I have been actually cleaning this dump up before my Loozy visit.
