The State of Things…

You may have noticed that my postings have been a little on the sparse side of late. I’ve been swept under by a tsunami of visitors, babysitting for friends’ children, madly preparing our house for renting out while we’re in Canada, making guests in our vacation rentals as happy as I can, taking reservations for the end of 2008 and 2009, caring for baby Clem and sisters, and attending / participating in end-of-school-year hoopla.

Just to give you a glimpse of my state-of-mind I drove my bevy down to Beaune the other day to buy Charlotte and Camille’s teachers something nice from L’Occitane to thank them for a great year. I found the perfect parking spot on the Place Carnot (a miracle!) and then hopped out of my car to realize that I had driven all the way from Villers-la-Faye to Beaune with my trunk wide open.

My stroller, shopping bags, and diaper bag were miraculously still inside the trunk, but what I couldn’t get over was that I HADN’T EVEN NOTICED ANYTHING STRANGE.

Oui folks, that is the state of things right now.
