Stunned silence

Well, Metro got the job. We're moving.

No. First we're getting married on Saturday. It's two sleeps away, as my sister keeps calling to tell me. (I'll answer the phone to hear her say "Six more sleeps!" or "Four more sleeps!" Cute, but irritating.)

Oh, and then we're off to Paris for a 10-night stay. Which means I've got to clean house, pack...

Then, we come home, Metro gives notice at his current job, and all hell breaks loose. He'll be working during the days (at a labour-intensive job, so he'll come home tired), and so will I. Culling, sorting, packing, planning...

And then to Penticton. A big change from Vancouver.

The only absurdity today is how busy life is going to be once we get home. And as there will be nothing I can do while in Paris...I will blithely eat cheese, view Art, drink wine, and wander the streets in an appreciative daze, holding my husband's hand.

So, bear with me until life finds its new track -- I may not have much chance to blog.

Wish me luck! (or sanity...)

This is all good news: a wedding, a trip to Paris, a great new job for Metro. Congrats to you both on all of it. The packing, moving, etc. are all just minor annoyances in the larger scheme of things. Take lots of photos in Paris and tell us all about it. Here's to new beginnings!

Thanks, Nag.

I'll make a trip to Chartres with Ted -- my turn to make a nostalgic trip. I hope I can find that restaurant you and Mr. Nag and I ate in...

Lori said...

Yes, Sonia, we're moving closer to you....

Dood, you have NO excuse for not blogging from Paris. C'mon, the envy-generating potential here is virtually limitless; can you IMAGINE the hits?

PS

You should see what I've done with your apartment. I've always liked the pinto cow motif, and I'm sure you will, too. Once you recover from the shock.
