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.

It’s been very difficult finding the time to post anything to LOT(L) lately. The daily routine is to get up, go to work, come home, open textbooks, read, highlight, go to bed, start over. Class is from 8am to 5pm on Saturdays, so Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon are normally time for relaxation. Unless, of course, there’s a diaconate discernment meeting such as there was this past Sunday, so Linda and I attended that from 1pm to 5pm.

Major Dad, DLG and family returned from their vacation to FLA. From all appearances it looks like a good time was had by all! While it was truly a much deserved holiday for them, we missed them greatly while they were gone.

Fr. Deo phoned yesterday evening. He's back in the States and will be in NOLA some time around July 14th for a few weeks. We're excited and anxious to see him! Should be a good opportunity for another family barbecue to make him feel welcome.

I would be terribly remiss if I didn't take this opportunity to say
to Ellie's mom, who was just sworn in as our families' newest United States Citizen! We are all so very proud of her!!

And speaking of Fr. Deo, it seems our Ugandan brethren at the seminary have been having too much time on their hands. So much so that apparently an altercation erupted between three of them, resulting in a visit by New Orleans' finest, and stitches to one of the participants. Conduct not so very becoming of future "men of God"! Only time will tell how the Archbishop of Tororo will respond. The Ugandan seminary program here in New Orleans seems to have taken quite a beating (no pun intended) in the last few years!
