My across the street neighbors are Nancy and Greg. If you remember my story of The day of the flood when Carrie facebooked her childhood friend Julia in Washington DC who texted her mom, who shouted out the window to us. We were on that raised porch as the water was rising still. Carrie had sent Blake with a boafff
A meeting with her contractor was scheduled today, so after that she came to my camper to pick up her mail and invite me to lunch!!!!!
One thing Nancy talked about was something that happens to me a lot too. When she is sad about her house and possessions lost, people often say, well you are getting a new house out of this. She, like me, feels angry. Neither of us wanted a new house. We didn't want to lose our stuff. These decisions we are having to make about replacements, are for things we liked. Things we didn't want to replace.
Neither of us wanted this new stuff. We just want our old stuff back.
In fact, Nancy said she deliberately chose the same ugly fabric for her new sofa.........just because.
