I'm HOME !!!!

At last!! When we were going to the house on Friday we noticed that the
local A & P supermarket was open although not yet fully stocked. That
evening, the city declared the tap water is safe, so on Saturday we
moved in. Sunday morning we went to church (first service since
Katrina) and spent the rest of the day unpacking and tidying up. Well,
let me clarify. Five minutes straightening, then a half hour rest,
etc.. Fortunately, I had the foresight to call the local maid service a
week ago to reserve someone, and she came yesterday for four hours to
sweep, dust, vacuum and mop right through, so the house is now liveable.
This is the first time the board has allowed me on, which is why you
are just now hearing the news. Today I saw my dentist, tomorrow we see
dh's eye doctor, then on Friday my pulmonologist, then we shall see
after that.
Thanks for all the prayers, good thoughts, cyber hugs etc.
Olwyn Mary (finally!!) in New Orleans.

liveable.
As the great Louis Armstrong would sing:
It's so nice to have you back where you belong..................................
Welcome "home" and hope you're soon settled in and that you and DH are doing well.

Great to hear from you directly at last, and good to see you in reasonably good spirits.
It will take a long time for the city to recover, and things will never quite be the same. That will take some getting used to. But remember London: despite the best efforts of savage hoards, several wars, plague, the Great Fire, the blitz, and several other attempts to destroy it, London survives and goes from strength to strength. NO can do the same. And take a tip from prehistoric lake dwellers here in Europe: put the buildings on stilts!

I am most happy to know you're home to stay. It's a great feeling, I'm sure, to have the house livable and to be able to attend your church, plus the added convenience of having A&P opened. Emily

So happy for you. I know youd your DH offered to take you on a vacation, and I thought then that I"ll bet you'd be happy just to go home.
No place like it.

That's great news. There's nothing like being back in your own bed after some time away, particularly the ordeal you've had!
