    Oh also I woke up with a really bad stress ulcer the day after we found out about the looting and my lip was so swollen that I looked like a chimp. I'm on broad spectrum antibiotics so I'm also having to deal with some horrendous side effects right now. It's way down this morning though so...

    We got some of our stuff back! The insurance company finally let the recovery team start pulling stuff out of the building for people after it was looted on Tuesday night while the THREE security guards on duty all slept in their cars. We lost all our salvageable electronics and a lot of other...

    Another update, we're now good in the hotel until May 1st. This is a HUGE deal and people have finally started finding places. The people from the apartment right next to ours had a friend who surprised them with an RV and they've found a place to park it that comes available on May 1st. Our...

    So update time. We are still in the hotel, now they're saying we have until Saturday but since every single landlord in town has decided our whole building is "high risk" no one has found anywhere to move to yet. We're at the two week mark and 1 family out of 43 has moved to Alberta to stay with...

    At least I would feel like she was there for me.

    Thank you to everyone for all the things you're saying. I'm still venting and hurting and scared but I don't want anyone to think I don't appreciate the support. I think my biggest challenge today is facing the fact that my genetic family just isn't there for me. 19 years ago my aunt's house...

    Everyone is so stressed and at each other's throats. I feel like a chew toy that two dogs are fighting over trying to keep my family together. Every time we go outside or there's an ad on the hotel tv for something we had it feels like we've lost everything all over again. I've been spending a...

    We may have found a place! But we won't know for at least a few days and if we get it it'll be a June move in and it's double what we were paying. But it'll be brand new!

    Oh also my favorite rat blog is sending us a package of hammocks for free to replace the ones we bought in December. I bawled. If anyone has small animals that use hammocks and hides, look up ratpotatoez on Instagram and Tumblr, she is an amazing human being and deserves your business.

    Stepson asked to go to stay with foster parents while we try to find a place, we agreed that being somewhere familiar and stable while we're in the hotel trying to figure things out was a good idea. Within 12 hours he had bolted to stay with friends. We're in contact with him and his friends...

    Island health has had people here on non holiday days and we're already connected to mental health services, but the timing is awful and with covid as well it's all a mess. Also there are 85 of us so, I mean, they're trying.

    Had a nightmare about running down an endless hallway banging on doors and screaming at people to get out but my voice was gone and the doors were made of pillows so no one could hear me. This is not going to be fun.

    Another day. It's slowly getting easier. Someone on our floor of the hotel got informed last night that they had found her kitten's body and she started wailing. I wish there was something I could do for her. Please please please sort out an evacuation plan for your pets. Do it today. If we...

    We've just been informed that there won't be any attempt at recovery for anything. We've lost everything. The paw print paintings of all our old pets and their ashes, my entire craft and jewellery business, my grandmother's locket, it's all gone even though the fire never got anywhere near it...

    That sounds good in theory but we have no opportunity to do that. Their assistants or property managers hear Pacific West and they hang up on us. We're talking about the kind of people who don't bother themselves with talking to little people personally. We've briefly spoken to a lawyer. Their...
