Hello all – how was your week/weekend? We spent the past week being somewhat normal, which strangely feels very good. Andy finished all his work inprocessing, so he is on his comp time for a little while. We went to school, to speech therapy, and tried out Kids Camp at the gym. It is an hour of exercising with kids between ages 3-9, and Addie LOVED it! The added bonus was that this gave me an hour to work out in peace, a rare occurrence. We went to the pool twice, a birthday party, a bbq, and relaxed at a friend’s house for awhile on Saturday. We have spent so much time together, and I love it.
And tomorrow….we leave for our big trip to Paris. Can you believe it? I may not always enjoy living here, but I love being able to nonchalantly say, “Oh yeah, we’re going to Paris this week. No big deal.” Being the planning freak that I am, I have already read book after book about the city, using the metro, buying tickets for various attractions so we do not have to wait in line, and packing Paris-appropriate outfits. I refuse to stick out like a sore thumb as a tourist, so finding comfortable but chic clothing was a trick. I feel like we are as ready as we are going to be. All of us are so excited! My biggest moment of joy already came tonight while I listened to Andy, my 32-year old husband, talk about all the characters he hopes to see at Disneyland and how excited he is to see the park. He really is a little kid in an adult body, but it’s part of why I love him. 🙂
I will not be taking my computer with me, but I promise to write about our trip and to post pictures when we return. Au revoir! Until we return!
