October 13th marked the one-year anniversary of the first time after hurricane Katrina Greg and I spent the night in our house. We drove from Houston with a load of stuff and to get a good look at things. We had been back but they were very short trips - only a couple of hours. We had managed to accumalate too much stuff to get everything back home in one car trip. So after cleaning up and getting a good look at everything we would drive back to Houston to get the cats, the rest of our stuff and a cooler full of groceries. It's nice to get another "anniversary" out of the way. Oct 19 will mark one-year we "moved" back home for good. Ironically we are out of town, visiting friends in San Francisco at this time. But it's nice to be away from home by choice and to get away from rebuilding. I will say when I was driving home from work Wendesday I was thinking about how much better things are now than they were a year ago. Certainly there is much still to be done, but the debris piles are fewer and smaller, you rarely see a fridge by the curb, at least in our part of town. But now it's time to get back to my vacation!
