That day was supposed to be a very good one for me and my family because I just came back from work. Actually, it was my 1st day of working away from home so that I wanted to wear my comfortable clothes, pick my baby from the day care center, and do other things instead of spending my time at work. Just before a scheduled phone conversation with my chief, the fire alarm of my house went off, and this is when my heart started beat faster. I remember that I took my bag, laptop, and dog because they were important to me at that moment, and then I went out of this building fast.
When I went outside, I didn’t notice any fire because I could only see water dripping from everywhere. I was sitting in my car and waiting for my spouse when firefighter arrived. This accident happened because of someone’s mistake that costed everyone a lot, and when it was fixed, I decided that I could go home, but I was wrong. That’s why I felt worried, overwhelmed, and quite stressed because I had a baby, dog, and no extra things with me.
We had to stay with friends for a few days, and then we spent a few days in the nearby hotel so that people started joking and calling us gypsies because we travelled from one place to another. The worst part is that I didn’t know anything about my home insurance policy, but we felt happy because we finally found some good place to stay for the next few months. My best recommendation for all people is to get effective insurance and coverage for all kinds of accidents, including fires.
My family had to move into the local extended-stay hotel and learn new things there, such as cooking my favorite salmon in a toaster. I realized that my house was destroyed with fire so that it lived only in my memories and I had to think about adjusting a new place of living. We didn’t know how long it would take to get money to find a new house so that I kept telling my baby that it’s just some adventure.
Unfortunately, we didn’t have enough space for the whole family, unlike our old house, but now I know that time can’t stop even if you lose your house. This means that people still need to work, study, and do other everyday things. At the moment, my old house damaged and ruined by fire still remains unlivable, but we managed to buy a new house after living in that temporary apartment. My family is currently in the process of selling everything left from my old house, but we feel happy and full of great hopes for the future. I think it’s the best attitude!
