I’m feeling a tad frazzled today, just a little overwhelmed because I’m juggling a few too many things. And also, I’ve gotten behind with this journal, and there’s so much to write about.
- The guy who dissolved the Soviet Union was in New Orleans over the weekend, talkin’ ’bout a revolution. Yup, Gorby said if we don’t get adequate flood control, “we will start a new revolution in New Orleans.” Wow! Truly astounding.
- After some truly frustrating delays, our two tile jobs are done. Mostly the delays were about getting grout. But at last we got all the grout and all the tiles are fully grouted.
- Paint. That will be the focus of my life for the next couple months, at least on the weekends. Last weekend I painted the ceiling green.
It’s fun to paint and listen to the Saints lose.
- Bob Breck says the fat lady is singing. Chances of any major storms here are rapidly diminishing. So that’s a relief.
- I went to City Hall this morning for a Design Review Committee meeting. It’s a surreal experience to visit City Hall these days. I guess it always has been, but now more so than usual.
They finally fixed their sign that was damaged by Katrina. Too bad they can’t fix the housing crisis. There’s a sprawling encampment of homeless people all around.
Speaking of signs, that was the purpose of the meeting: to review the design of a neighborhood sign for Mid-City. More about that later.
Well, that’s some of what’s been on my mind lately. I feel a little better now.
