Things here have been quiet; life off-line has not been.
M is taking a leave of absence from her parish. Our bishop is being very supportive and is going to assist her in locating a more healthy parish setting. In the long run, this is going to be a very good thing; in the short term it’s going to suck as we’re back down to one salary with expenses intended for two.
One bit of good news both financially and otherwise is that I’ll be teaching the main intro class for my secondary field next term and am looking forward to that. And yes, de doctrina *will* be a required text…
So–please keep us, and especially M, in your prayers as we negotiate this time.
