Hooray, it’s a brand new year!
2006 was mostly spent recovering from Hurricane Katrina.Â I still harbor a great deal of anger about the actual event and the response to it by various members of society; however, I also am still very conscious of how utterly lucky I am to have everything I have now.
This time last year my husband was working as a “rope puller” on a tugboat simply to ensure that we wouldn’t be homeless (again) after Katrina.Â I look around at my “not-as-big-as-the-one-in-New-Orleans” apartment with my lovely bed in it and the kitchen in which the cabinets are in grave danger of falling off the wall and am very grateful to be living here.Â This time last year it was up in the air whether I would be able to graduate from UNO (http://www NULL.uno NULL.edu), but now I’m a graduate student!
Well, I would write more, but James (http://www NULL.ambardia NULL.com) came home and wants to talk.Â Happy New Year, everyone!(http://www NULL.linkwithin NULL.com/)
