From the 4th floor of our hotel.
Hello friend. It’s been so long since we last talked. And so much has happened in between. Some sad news. We lost our boy, Skylar. And now both our babes are gone.
If you’ve ever been unconditionally loved by an animal you probably know how deeply this hurts. Losing both our fur babies after sharing 17 amazing years with them has been so much harder on me than I could have ever prepared myself for. Coming home is proving to be the hardest, knowing there’s no one there waiting to greet me at the door.
Also, we have been living out of a hotel for the last four months. We had a drain pipe break inside our walls, which flooded both our master bathroom and guest bathroom, master bedroom and kitchen. Between the mold and asbestos, and my killer allergies, we were not able to stay in our home until everything had been resolved. Nothing like two completely unplanned bathroom remodels!
This is our master bathroom, shortly after it was gutted, stripped down to the studs from counter height below…
On a lighter note, during the four month stay at our hotel, we were humored by the fact that Angelyne was also a resident at our hotel. Anyone that lived in Southern California during the 80’s might recall the Angelyne billboards scattered all over Los Angeles. And if you’re curious, yes, she still has the hot pink corvette, the blonde hair and miniskirt, the whole deal.
In my next post I’ll share our bathroom remodels, what a journey it’s been!
