time to face reality


happy monday. it’s a gloomy rainy day here and i’m loving it. the past couple days were completely tech free so i’m about to jump back into the ether pool after a much needed recharge.

these are the last few days to tie up loose ends.  i’m leaving on friday for a month in paris and am not sure how it crept up so suddenly. funny how you have all the time in the world and then you don’t.

so i have to get crackin. we’d like  to ‘launch’ on may 15 and there is still a ton to do.

and for my job,  i’m preparing an itinerary for my clients.  since we’ll be shopping,  i’m putting together a calendar of every brocante, flea market and vide grenier (attic sale) that’s happening in paris each day of the week throughout the month. may is one of the best times of the year for the markets in paris, and practically my favorite thing to do in the world. this one’s on the day i arrive.

but the work part, the prep, man, that’s tedious!  ok, back to it, more soon.

    So jealous that you will be in Paris for a whole month, but at least I can comfort myself knowing that we should all be in for some great blog entries! And the Euro is turning a bit more to your favor!! Bon Chance et Bon Courage!! Paul Gaudet
