Hello All! I'm back in the good ol' USA. A lot has happened since my return. While my trip was indeed a wonderful experience that I will treasure always, the return home was somewhat eventful in its own right.
I came home to a flood in my basement, a ton of water damage, and lots of collateral damage. This includes some much beloved photos. As the self-appointed family archivist, you can well imagine what this has done to me on an emotional scale. As if that wasn't enough, my computer is completely inoperable. I have had contractors in and out of the house from sun-up to sun-down. Also, my dog ran away then decided to come back. I had no hot water for over a week, and as I write this, I still have none. This has been quite the ordeal. One thing this whole crisis has done for me is restore my faith in humanity. All the people involved in assisting me and bringing our basement back to pre-loss condition have been truly AMAZING! I would love to post more pictures of my Germany trip but at the moment it will have to wait due to the current state of my computer. I hope all is well for everyone.
