Life Is Still Good

Sadly, the New Orleans Saints’ 2011-12 season of football ended on Saturday evening with a heartbreaking loss to the San Francisco 49ers.


As the last seconds ticked off the clock, we were not the ones celebrating an advance to the NFC Championship game.


Instead, we were reluctantly licking our wounds, acknowledging a commendable season but denying that it was truly over.


September suddenly seems very far away.


For a city and state that love the game, spring and summer last way too long.


Luckily, there are many things to make the off-season go by faster, at least for our family.


There’s a trip to Breckenridge in store for Kenny and I next month, which we are very much looking forward to taking, even though we will surely miss our boy desperately.


There’s also Lizzie and Doug’s wedding in early May, which will no doubt be the social event of the year.


And, most importantly, there’s the arrival of Aunt E and Uncle Jeff’s new baby in early August (or late July!) to anticipate.


Thank goodness for the distractions of vacations, weddings, and babies.

Otherwise, it would be a very long 8 months.
