AMAZING ANIMAL LOVERS BLOG

Could it be?

Hi Friends, is it me or could this be the Loch Ness Monster of Grand Cayman? 
I can see it, can you?

Well we are back home and this is how my last two days went...

1)  We had hired a new doggy nanny...and when we walked in at 11:30PM...
2)  House was a complete mess...if you know what I mean...OMD, I cried...
3)  Yes, the animals were well and VERY happy to see us!  That is important.
4) I started cleaning at midnight (went to sleep about two thirty) and finished the next day.
5)  My girlfriend had to come over and help me.  I was overwhelmed.
6) Huge water damage in the house...My son's new room that we just did over
had a flood from the snow and his new floor lifted and the wall was damaged.
7) My office and bathroom, severe water damage.  In my office, it wasn't where the ice was, it was the opposite side.  
8)  Greenhouse collapsed from snow.
9)  Did I mentioned that a door in our house was broken??? I big piece broken off???
I forgot to ask her what happened.
10)  Paid doggy nanny and she said it was a lot work...I wanted to ask her 
what she did, but I didn't.
11)  Learned a huge lesson...Only hire professionals with GREAT references!

I'm over the shock of it now and my home is back to normal...nice and clean!  If you  can only imagine...

Have a great day!

Oh my GOSH!!!! I'm so, so sorry. What a huge shock this must have been! Was this woman a friend? I hope not! Did she have your number, what did she say about why she didn't even call you? Did you see your cards on my blog, they looked so pertty and everyone loved them! I put the little girl typing on the header, it was spectacular!

You're a better person than I am! I'd have taken pictures and asked her what she did to earn the money. I'm sorry you had such a rotten homecoming.

But, how could the doggy nanny have helped the roof collapsing from the snow and the flood? Maybe next time get a nanny cam!

I'm so sorry! I've had vacations like that when I wished I would have not come back!

Roo said...

Yikes! Well at least the animals were fine :) How can that much damage happen over just a couple weeks?!!! You'd think nanny nincompoop would have at least called to say what was happening?!!! >:( Goodness. Shakin my head.

At least you're home safe and sound and all the kids are healthy :)

Hope you get some rest!

Waggin at ya,
Roo

Gloria said...

That sure was enough to ruin a vacation! Maybe thats why the nanny didn't call you???

Mary said...

The thawing is starting to take it's toll, same here.

Deborah I'm so sorry!!! I'm glad it is over but the damage to your home you must have felt violated to see you home so messed up.

My pet sitter moved back home to New England last May. I don't know exactly where but maybe she is near you. She was wonderful. My email is on my blog if you want her name send me an email.

We are so sorry for you, but truly understand about only hiring "professional" ones!
(Living on a farm... we always have to find "farm sitters", when we go away...).
Glad to hear you finally got everything clean, and - welcome home!
