Re: In the world not of the world Chat Thread

Well, I'm back from my grandmas. We did not take any schoolwork with us. I knew if we took it, we would not do it. I hadn't seen my grandma in 14 years, so visiting was more important. We used sposies too. Now back to cloth and schoolwork.

Hope you guys had fun there. I don't take school work on vacations either. We are planning a huge trip back to family for two weeks over Christmas and we are not going to take anything.

Re: In the world not of the world Chat Thread

We did have fun! Thanks!

Two weeks to visit family sounds great. Not taking anything is a wonderful plan. We had not traveled in awhile, so I did not realize everyone practically takes their luggage as carry-on. Our suitcases were too large. I was so out of the loop. It cost us $25 per bag. I guess I need to invest in smaller bags sometime.

Ouch how many bags did you end up paying for?

Back from my friend's husband funeral.

Thank goodness it was only 3 for the 7 of us. One bag had 2 booster seats. I kept the baby's carseat clicked into the stroller as a gate check, or that would have been another $25.

I'm so sorry your friend's husband died.

I have to keep that in mind if we travel. It's been a while and I can imagine getting to the airport and having to fork over $.

Thank you. His wife was handling things really well. They were always together so this is going to be a big adjustment.

He never wanted to go to church but he would drop her off and pick her up every Sunday. So we all got to know him. He became part of our parish even though we couldn't get him inside.

Our priest was with him many times during this last illness. Our priest obviously had a great affection for him and that could be seen during the Mass. It was very moving.

I'm glad she's handling his passing well, I can not imagine...

That is comforting knowing he became a part of your parish without attending. It sounds like he was a good man and will be missed.
