We Have Electricity!

By JLP | October 7, 2005

My neighbor called me last night and told me that we now have electricity. We can now go home and start putting our lives back together. I am thankful that we don’t have as much to put back together as some other people do. I feel guilty because I really had a pretty nasty attitude at times during this ordeal. Based on how much many people lost, I really didn’t have a right to be that angry.

Anyway, we are moving back home today. It is going to be a lot of work getting the house back in order. The yard is a mess. We have a fence that will need to be replaced. I have huge tree that will need to be cut up and hauled to the curb so that the city can pick it up. My garage will need to be cleaned out. The inside of the house is a disaster area. This weekend will be very busy. But, it’s a good kind of busy.

    Will you have an Internet connection or will that take some time?

    Good to hear you can move back in, I think you had a right to be angry or disappointed. I would be. There are always people worse-off, and better-off, no matter what just happened. As long as we help others when we are the ones better-off, getting pissed is part of living! =)
