H1, H2, & Big Boy Life on the (L)edge

Begun in the aftermath of Katrina, this blog was a way to keep family and friends updated as the family struggled to return to a semblance of normalcy. Now, more than four years later, the memories are still strong, the family is, to some extent, scattered. However, life did go on, and this is our story.

Tuesday, September 27th

Much has happened since my last post, some good, some not so good. All we can do is place our hope in God's divine presence in our lives.

As some of you may know, my daughter-in-law works for a law firm that relocated to Houston after hurricane Katrina. Now that things are settling down and people are beginning to return to New Orleans, we've just learned that of the five attorneys at the firm, four are returning and one has elected to remain in Houston. You guessed it.... the one she works for!! That means she and our oldest son will be relocating permanently to Houston. This is the first time the family has been truly split since he joined the Navy.

Our daughter took the grand-kids to Disney World last Sunday. She said they had a wonderful time and the littlest princess was on her best behavior the whole time!! Check out the photos of the grand-kids at Disney World: http://disneyphotopass.go.com/DPI/r.d?i=227392294 Don't know how long they will be available, but they're cute.

Because of the lack of space where her office relocated, Linda is working every other day while I have to go in daily (sux to be me!?!?!). I think I mentioned previously that they are moving into an abandoned K-Mart building, so her mini-vacation will be short lived.

Just got email from our very good friends who evacuated to Colorado. They are returning to New Orleans via MEMPHIS!!!!! We'll get to see them Thursday evening!! Wish our daughter could be here with us, as she loves them like family, as we do.

Looks like we will try to go to New Orleans over Columbus Day weekend to meet with our insurance adjustor. Hopefully we will have power to our house before that so we can stay in some comfort, at least.

Today I'm asking specifically for prayers for our Catholic school system. They are having to lay off many faculty and staff because of the storm and lack of students. As a very wise Archbishop from Uganda once said, "A school without God creates clever devils!"

Wishing everyone good health, happiness and a swift return to a life of some normalcy.

Take care, and God bless us all!
