- Wedding: May 2011
Ugh just need to complain. Darling Husband and I went away for our first post wedding vacation this past weekend and Hurricane Irene came through while we were gone. Our flight home from Chicago was cancelled of course, whatever, I worked from my Chicago office on Monday and Tuesday. Poor Darling Husband had to use up the last of his vacation days and can’t come home for my brother’s college graduation in December now. Again, not the end of the world. His dad stopped by our town house Tuesday and told us the basement was fine so we were really relieved.
THEN TODAY HAPPENED.
We had a 6am flight out of Chicago and the check in person swapped our luggage sticker with the person next to us so our luggage went to LaGuardia. Our bag still hasn’t been delivered so I get to go without things like make-up tomorrow. Darling Husband decided to work from home and called me yelling about an hour later. Our basement most definitely flooded, I have no idea how Father-In-Law thought everything was fine. ALL our wedding gifts were still in the basement. I had to rush home to help Darling Husband take everything out of their gross, soggy cardboard boxes and have been washing things for hours. We still have no idea if the electonics will work again. THEN, Darling Husband took our sand ceremony vases out of their wet box. We had not opened the box since the wedding and boy were we surprised to see three COMPLETELY EMPTY VASES. WTF haha. What idiot was like “oh they won’t want to keep this sand”. I need this day to end (so I can continue cleaning my basement tomorrow).
