mellicious: pink manicure (Default)
I went to work today, for five whole hours. We are in noisy, ugly temporary quarters but it was nice to talk to everybody. Rob went to work, too, but was released after a while and told their department was off "indefinitely". He will get paid for two more weeks, but I'm not sure what would happen after that. I suspect that they will find them something to do, in any case. (Knock on wood.)

I am now driving a bright-blue PT Cruiser. Getting it was a pain, but I've got it now and I'm not giving it back until they decide what the deal is with my car. I have an opinion on that, I just hope State Farm agrees with me. If they try to tell me that car is repairable I'm not going to be happy.

I am so tired. I guess it's just cumulative - or else I'm getting sick, which wouldn't be terribly surprising at this point, either. Don't know which. I am going to go sleep on my lovely new Ikea bed very soon, which we paid some guys $90 to assemble earlier today. It was totally worth the money, as far as I'm concerned.

I did not know there was such a thing as the Blue Roof Program, but I knew what they were talking about the minute I saw a flyer for it yesterday. All those neatly-done blue tarps are very, very noticeable in Galveston. And I had noticed that they didn't look amateurish and they all looked rather alike. The Corps of Engineers (and FEMA, god knows) have taken a lot of heat in the last couple of years, but I can tell you that a lot of people are really happy to have those blue roofs.
