Look Caren, I'm posting again...
It is now officiall day 16 of my unwilling citizenship in Texas. Not that Humble isn't a nice place. It'd only 20 minutes from houston, and the people are nice. I just want to go home. I want to return to normal, but i know it won't be normal. Being home would be somewhat normal. 99.9% of my friends are accounted for. I did lose a cousin 2 days after the storm. She had stomach cancer, and was doing ok.|
Went to bed at the hospital and didnt wake up, but she was smiling, so I think she was ready to go.
I'm down to my last 25 bucks, but I think we have insurance money and Fema(boo!) money, but i mean my own pockets have 25$ in them. I feel bad for taking discounts, and its not even like i do it intentionally. I open my wallet to pay and they see my ID. I feel guilty. like im asking for a handout. My future in my beloved(new orleans) is uncertain, i'm just sort of torn. Thanks for all the support the few of you have given me, and if you donated i will make it a goal to personally thank each and everyone of you to your face.
just saw the news, some houston kids threw a can at some new orleans kids starting school today. the new orleans kids beat the shit out of them. it's kinda heartwarming. they shouldnt have to put up with that shit, but i dont know the whole story, so maybe i'm wrong.
sorry for your loss doll.
Don't worry about your return home, we will all get together, barbeque and then start to rebuild. Call me sometime

You responded to my 10/03 post to the New Orleans list...thank you for listening to my tale, and thank you for offering your friendship.
I'm adding you to my friends list, if that's ok...feel free to do the same. :-)
If you ever want to talk, feel free to write. I know you miss your home...don't give up. I haven't given up on living there...you're not alone. And if you ever need someone to hold you up, I'm here.
