Yesterday we went to our house and chainsawed down the hallway door, the office door, and our bedroom door. Oddly enough, our smoke alarm still works and our bed, although moved to a different side of the room, was still made. Since several of our bedspreads were stored in a plastic, under-the-bed storage container I was able to save them; I'm really happy about it because two of them were my much-beloved, colorful, hemp bedspreads that are just perfect for the hot summer because they're so light and loosely woven. Our winter clothes are in good shape, too, because I kept them in a plastic bin on the top shelf of our closet; All I have to do to be able to use them is wash out the funky smell, which I'm doing right now.

I spent my morning peeling CDs out of their molded, water-logged cases and my afternoon washing them off in the kitchen sink. Most of our CDs, DVDs, and video games are in good shape; Only about ten per cent of them are trashed.

So, it's mostly good news when it comes to our music and clothes, but post-Katrina life still isn't easy. Especially not when friends and family are dropping dead right and left; My pediatrician of eighteen years recently killed himself, a good friend of the family was just diagnosed with stomach cancer, and last night a member of Bonerama died of a heart attack on his way to a gig. One of my mom's bandmates is married to a member of Bonerama, so we had a good relationship with the whole band.

Today's dreary in more than one way.
