Two months. And clean up continues. If you would like to see some more pictures of the coast, visit http://www.gulfcoastnews.com/KatrinaPhotosMain.htm. The link on the page takes you to more photos that really capture what it looks like down here. (I checked the link before posting for the 10 year anniversary and it includes pictures from several years after, as well as a link to additional photos.)
We’re trying to get over the sheetrock hump. It is all hung and floated; we just need to finish sanding and texturing. With work and activities, we haven’t had a chance to work on the house all week. Today, Jon and Rocky will hopefully get to the texturing. I am going to Home Depot to try to start buying paint. We’ve ordered our kitchen cabinets. Since the color of our cabinets we had was discontinued two years ago, we had to replace all the cabinets. They should be delivered sometime around Thanksgiving. Jon will be installing them himself. Tuesday, Jon and I will take the van to have the window fixed and visit the flooring company to order flooring and carpet. We were hoping to be in our home by Thanksgiving, but now I’m hoping we’ll be in by Christmas. We haven’t even had an opportunity to start furniture shopping to replace all the furniture we lost.
Well, I need to get moving if I want to get anything accomplished today.
Will try to write some more later. A friend reminded me that I am overdue on an email with the rest of Beth Moore’s study.
God is good.
Grace & Peace
