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
Thanks for all the prayers, good thoughts, cyber hugs and especially for
the afghan, which is now draped across the back of my favorite chair -
which happens to be dark green, so the afghan positively glows against
it. I keep refolding it, as each side is different, and each one nicer
than the last.

That is great news, wonderful that your city is slowly getting back on
it's feet. I heard yesterday that finally all the dikes and leevies are
closed and that the water all gone from the city. Amazing, Good luck with
all the upcoming recoveries
