These photos show just how close Paul and Linda are getting to having their brand new kitchen and bathroom completely done and ready to use. The tile floors are in and the bath is already grouted and ready for sealer. The kitchen will be the same by the end of the day. You can see by Linda's face that she is more than ready and so excited to see the progress day by day. She's already planning on a huge gumbo feast for all who have been involved! Monty is ready!! :)
We also stopped and checked on Walter. Looks as though his neighbors will indeed have his interior walls ready for our volunteers this weekend. All they need to do is get the supplies and the women will be ready to paint and bring it to life.
Hai is also nearly moved in. She finds herself living in both the FEMA trailer and her house -- just needs to get things moved and some window blinds up and she will be in. She's been a bit busy with getting kids in school and such and with her husband getting ready to be deployed to Afghanistan she has her hands full.
I had the pleasure of attending the weekly staff meeting for "Boat People" this morning. They are preparing cases to bring to the Long Term Recovery for assistance and wanting to make sure they have their paperwork all lined up. It was nice to meet all of them. As I have said many times before -- it takes all of us working together to make this recovery work!
Just a side note to everyone out there --- tomorrow is MONTY'S BIRTHDAY!!! I won't tell his age, especially since he's nearly 11 years younger than me!!!!!
Until then . . . be blessed. Susan and Monty
