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.

I've decided to take DLG up on her idea. So here goes.

7 Things I Like About Our Family

  1. We have a great, albeit somewhat skewed, sense of humor.
  2. We are loving and caring to each other (including spouses!!)
  3. We have such wonderful and cerebral dinner conversations!
  4. We are generally considerate and well-mannered to others (well, most of us, most of the time)
  5. We hide our dysfunction well?!?
  6. We are loyal to each other
  7. We ROCK!!!
  8. Our kids have GREAT TASTE in parents!!

So there. Be careful what you ask for (or suggest, I guess in this case)

A note to H1/DIL1: You guys need to make plans to get on back over here so we can have a homemade pizza and crawfish boil weekend!! It's almost that time!

Let's do it!!!
