Before I update - I must vent one thing... Learning that stuff and things aren't important is nothing compared to being nice to an insurance person! I have not met one neighborly person yet - you know the commercial.... like a good neighbor, state farm is there! Not so much what is going on. And I get everyone is stressed a bit right now - but I had 7 separate conversations with State Farm insurance reps on tuesday and none of them matched on their answers to my questions or suggestions on how to move forward.
Anyway - we have so much to do - we have taken pictures of all the damage - we have to list every item that was damaged, where we bought it, how much we paid, how much it would cost today, and how long I have had it. to put this into perspective a bit - the only rooms with out water damage were 1/2 the kitchen, laundry room, office we think, and entry way. All living room and bedroom furniture and most all in those rooms is "unlivable" that is what the insurance people call it!
We have to find temp housing and I found out today the closest ones they have to offer are in Katy - not so much going to work. Kyle still averages about 4 visits a week - in fact this week - we still will make 3 visits and we are getting that in the last 2 days of the week and we cancelled two due to hurricane Ike.
So for now we are at the parent's casa - moving much of our salvageable stuff to storage. We met with a state farm person late today and she was really nice! Not sure if we will agree on what is "damaged"or not but she was really nice and that was refreshing.
Now that I am done complaining.... (and I do feel better!)
Kyle heads to Dr. Hitner tomorrow to have his eye checked. We also go to the high risk pedi tomorrow for a check up.
