That was a short lived celebration...

Wow, what a Superbowl...

All I asked for was a close game!

Sam had picked the Patriots to go to the Superbowl but he was rooting for the Giants...

I was too... 

We had 11 people here and 9 were for the Giants... 

The chili I made was perfect... everyone just kept getting more bowls... even Kieffer and Kameron ate it!

So we are all celebrating and watching the Lombardi trophy being given... when Sam's cell phone goes off...

Oh brother what now...

It was our office manager Marie, she went to the office to feed the dogs and noticed the 20ft awning with steel pipes is just 'gone'

[We had winds gusting so bad all day up to 60mph at times]

Oh ya plus the backdoor to our tenant next door [a pilates studio] was banging open...

Sam told her to call the police about the pilates studio... and Sam, Kameron, Kieffer and Kris jumped in Sam's truck and drove over there... We are hoping that awning hasn't damaged any expensive cars in the surrounding area...

Oh brother... and we were in such a great mood over the Superbowl!

This was better than I thought, but still terrible.  I was worried the "phone call" was about Grandpa.  I am sorry so much seems to be going off for you right now.  You are a positive person, but of course, it gets frustrating. ~Mary
