Getting Closer to My Home...

Yesterday, a call for volunteers went up on iBrattleboro.com. Included was a request for people to help move 6 families back into their homes where I lived until August 27th. It said they were anticipating this move back, pending Certificates of Occupancy to be given on Friday.

This makes it somewhat official. They wouldn't post it on a public forum if it wasn't thisclose.

Little by little I'm packing up my stuff. The dvds and music, the books going home, the thingies I've left around... I avoided opening everything and unpacking so it wouldn't be a rush at the end.

Also been planning how to better arrange the furniture. It all just kind of happened in the first move in. This time I can plan on where things will live. And it's time to change the bathroom. The shower curtain I ordered to replace the ruined one came yesterday, and in the next months I'll get new towels (bless Amazon for bargains). Then the remnants of the old apartment with its gold fiberglass bathtub and gold/green/maroon accoutrements will be history.

It's a fresh start in some ways. A chance to put things in order, to make things better. A flood only comes through Bratt every hundred years or so. I don't expect to go through this again. ;)
