I am sorry that I have not posted. It has been awkward not having a computer. Still there is good news! My camera and card reader dried out and now work!
I have now got power in the kitchen. The outlet now works and so too does the kitchen light. As well, I have started building in the upper cupboards.
I’m so glad you got some of your stuff back! I thought of you the other day, I am in the process of transferring my work over to a cloud data backup system. I couldn’t help but find it a genius invention when I remembered your story, have you looked into a cloud system for backing up your data? I bet the free version of Google Drive or Dropbox would be enough to save your writing. I am still so bummed for you!
