I am definitely a country girl that loves to garden, quilt, preserve, hunt, and read. I love my family more than anything in the world. I live with my husband of fifty years. We have a son, daughter, granddaughter and grandson. We live on a 500+ acre farm in Virginia with about 75 cows & bulls, thirty chickens, and three dogs.

Oh my GOSH!!!! I'm so, so sorry. What a huge shock this must have been! Was this woman a friend? I hope not! Did she have your number, what did she say about why she didn't even call you? Did you see your cards on my blog, they looked so pertty and everyone loved them! I put the little girl typing on the header, it was spectacular!
Oh that puts a damper on the Welcome Home. I am sorry you had to go through all that. I am glad your pets are ok. How scary!! Hope this week is kinder to you than last one!
Oh my stars!!! Oh no! 😦 What happened?!?! I'm so sorry! What a shock to come home to?!? I'm so glad your pets were ok! Oh but of course they missed you!! Glad you are all back together again. Take care, please!!! x
You're a better person than I am! I'd have taken pictures and asked her what she did to earn the money. I'm sorry you had such a rotten homecoming.

Sorry about the mess you had to come home to:( Glad the dogs were okay, though…Mocha Barney, Ashley Pumpernickel and Winniechurchill
But, how could the doggy nanny have helped the roof collapsing from the snow and the flood? Maybe next time get a nanny cam!I'm so sorry! I've had vacations like that when I wished I would have not come back!
Yikes! Well at least the animals were fine 🙂 How can that much damage happen over just a couple weeks?!!! You'd think nanny nincompoop would have at least called to say what was happening?!!! 😡 Goodness. Shakin my head.At least you're home safe and sound and all the kids are healthy :)Hope you get some rest!Waggin at ya,Roo
That sure was enough to ruin a vacation! Maybe thats why the nanny didn't call you???
The thawing is starting to take it's toll, same here.
No wonder you were tired! LOL!Hugs,
Deborah I'm so sorry!!! I'm glad it is over but the damage to your home you must have felt violated to see you home so messed up.My pet sitter moved back home to New England last May. I don't know exactly where but maybe she is near you. She was wonderful. My email is on my blog if you want her name send me an email.Madi and Mom
We are so sorry for you, but truly understand about only hiring \”professional\” ones!(Living on a farm… we always have to find \”farm sitters\”, when we go away…).Glad to hear you finally got everything clean, and – welcome home!Rudy's Raiser
