Insurance, Projects, & Life

Life doesn’t appear to be slowing down anywhere in the near future. I guess that’s ok.

Let’s see, what’s been going on….  Insurance adjusters came by yesterday and apparently were a little bit stumped by the amount of damage. Then there was an article in the paper here today about how the total from hail damage will be more than that of the tornadoes on May 10. That’s amazing to me.  The insurance guys suggested that we just throw out our rug and chairs in the living room b/c of the glass. We keep finding glass, now 10 days after the fact. Jude stepped on some just the other night and had it wedged in his little foot. Yeah, THAT was fun to get out. Nothing like holding your screaming child down so you can get the shard of glass out of his foot. It’s a lose-lose situation.

I am not excited by the proposition of throwing out my rug. I LIKE my rug.

Then again, I like this rug too. Hee hee

Seriously, though, there has got to be a way to get all the glass out.

We got some pictures in the mail the other day from Simon’s grandmother. She took these at my birthday party a month ago.

I love it that in this day and age of digital photography and email that she still shoots on film and sends it to us in the real live mail.

We also got in the proofs for Uptown Kids’ shopping bags. I have never been so excited! It’s so much fun to work on this project – just wait’ll you see it all done! Construction has begun on the site itself; grand opening is in August.  We’ll launch their website at the end of June.

I guess all this stuff is going to make me appreciate going on vacation even more! We’ll be leaving next week for Los Angeles – and a side trip to Disneyland!

  • What a bummer about your rug and furniture! At least it is an excuse for a shopping trip though huh? 🙂 I love that your Grandma sends you photos. Mine send me notes and diaper coupons ever Sunday. Makes me smile. 🙂 And that bag design is awesome! You have one of my dream jobs.

  • Yup. You need to get rid of that rug. It’s a serious hazard. I’m happy to adopt it if need be. 😉

    (I’m only half-way kidding)

  • My best trick for glass is tape. You go over the entire rug, slowly but surely. Then do it again perpendicular. And then maybe take it outside and beat it with a baseball bat (wearing eye protection). It’s too pretty to throw away…I had a picture frame (20×20) that fell from the top of a bookcase, and man, was that ever a pain to take care of.

    I love the bag, too!
