Choose Life

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.

H2, Where R U?

It's been a really great weekend. Patti, Jerrod and family came up late Friday night and spent the weekend here in Memphis. They stayed right here at Homewood Suites, so it was convenient. The first night BB stayed with us, the second Ian. Maynard was thrilled!!

I think we all had a good time, centered around food, as always. Saturday morning we started off with breakfast at the Blue Plate Cafe, always an excellent choice, as witnessed by the crowds gathered at the door. Later the girls went shopping at the mall, and the guys went site seeing around the countryside.

Dinner Saturday night was a scrumptious affair at Texas de Brazil (surprised?)! Everyone enjoyed the food, the atmosphere and the evening. I think Ian was the most impressed. BB is hard to impress, she just takes it all in.

Sunday morning we had a late breakfast at Brother Juniper's, next to U of M. It, too, was great. Then, too soon, the weekend was over and L and I are alone, once again.

Throughout the weekend we tried to reach H2, but no success. If you read this, H2, please give us a call.

This afternoon we went to see the American Haunting. Interesting movie. Not really scary, more of a gothic horror, I guess. No blood and guts. Kind of a creepy twist at the end, especially if you're a parent. Don't know that I'd recommend it to everyone.

Linda is definitely staying in Memphis. She signed her paperwork agreeing to accept her job here. I am definitely returning to New Orleans in June. We haven't had a serious long term relationship in a while. And, we haven't figured out where she's going to live for the next 6 months, either! Prayers would definitely be appreciated!

Last week was a total wash for both of us. I came down with a stomach virus in the wee hours Monday morning, and Linda followed suit Wednesday morning. I finally made it back to work on Friday. We hope none of the family members get it. It was NOT pleasant!!

Seeing the kids piecemeal like we're doing is nice, but it would be really great to get everyone together again, one big happy family, with all our warts and wrinkles! We may be a bit weird, but we really love one another, and that's the key, isn't it?

Now that the elections are finally over, let's see if New Orleans can get moving again. And let's see if Mitch Landrieu and Ray Nagin can work together for the common good of the city. Please pray for the citizens and the city of New Orleans as the recovery and rebuilding continues.

May God continue to heap blessing upon blessing on you all!!
