Hello again dear humans, minions and ladies…
I wish adamantly my postings here were of more educational and personal interests than what I’m about to recall. But alas, they are not at this time.
I’ve finally been given word from insurance and repair companies about final dues, repairs and plan of action. To the tune of $15,000 just on indoor repairs. Thankfully (or not? I’m not sure) my house has become more damaged from rain from the time of walls being opened till now. (My master bedroom is a bit of a hazard at this time as ones foot/leg could go right through the floor in the rotted spot.) But this means the insurance really can not have a leg to stand on arguing about what they are or are not going to pay. At this time all I have to do is pay the $1000 deductible + a few smaller (comparably) repairs. A blessing indeed at this point. The downside for myself is the 6-8 week timeline during which people are going to be in and out of my house daily.
After enduring already 2 weeks or roofing sounds Brooke may just find herself some new roomates… ha. ha. ha. She has graciously allowed me to come over, store any art and work at her lovely studio if I need. Managing this entire situation alone is a job for one person. Alas I’m one person who also has work to do, animals to tend too and the like. As you can gather things have been extremely busy.
The open walls have presented even more problems than one person should be able to cope with. Large wasps. Yes and I had someone come and dust for them but I’m STILL finding them inside the house daily, 10-15-20. I’ve broken my fly swatter and now need a new one. Revenge of the wasps I fear…
My roof is still being worked on but I believe is wrapping up this week from what I can tell. It looks gorgeous, happy with the color I picked. All being last minute, not my style of deciding on such large projects but no mulling about on all of this. So that has been a fun $16,000.
As you can see this season is getting very expensive.
Have a sexy photo to be encouraged to keep reading, you visual creatures you.
Since there is so many people on and off my property at times I’m never sure of, as you can also gather filming customs and such is low and slim to none possibility at this time. If ordered via IWANTCLIPS here: https://iwantclips.com/store/2616/MistressVictoria it is possible that I will accept it. Tipping is also encouraged. I can go to Brookes and film, it just takes more to manage that though it can be doable.
At this time I can not film outdoor content. A slim chance I could on the weekend BUT I’ve had workers here on the weekend, then my neighbors are home doing yard work or their kids are yelling etc. Hazardous… I had so many ideas of my own to film outside this fall so I’m sorely disappointed at this time. I’m hoping to arrange a few hours sometime to do so but it’s a slim chance.
Since all this happened I had the brilliant (least I’m hoping) idea to turn my master bedroom into my filming space. I’ve been longing for a larger room to set up, store and handle work and this just seems to make the most sense. I just sleep in my bedroom so why not make the space more usable? Since the repairs will be doing all walls, paint, flooring etc it will be done exactly how I want and I’ll be ready to decorate it soon after. It shall probably have a classy living room look to it, bedroom look still being available by using the room most recent customs have been filmed in. I enjoy using different settings so this will give me more options (and you) with a new clean fresh look. Hopefully forever free of water.
Mentioning water, Sunday a pipe burst in my basement ruining some personal belongings of mine. It’s like I’ve -almost- come to expect such things to occur…Though I’m quite over it and just taking everything day by day.
More sexy photos. I do want to say a large pleased thank you to those who have been ordering clips, sending gift cards (home depot, amazon, starbucks) as those have all been extremely helpful. I can barely cook at home currently with how everything has to be arranged for lack of rooms being able to be used properly. There is also some smaller things the insurance won’t be covering that I need to purchase and repair.
I have been squeezing in quite a bit of riding time on the horses lately as it is something I can do outside. I’ve had some really great leaps and bounds with my “newest” horse that I have had for 7 months now. She is 19, built like Hercules and has the fiery spirit of someone much younger. It has been a real joy to bring her back, body, mind and spirit; to her full glory. I’ve learned A LOT and really had to up my skill level to ride her. I’ve had some rides that a year ago I for sure would have ended up on the ground that I handled with confidence. I’m proud of myself, her and my massage/chiro/vet team that has her feeling the best she can.
Sadly, I could write more but well I’ve got to get going now with multiple appointments in and out of the house for the repairs. Go forth and be good for me in whatever way you can…
