Sometimes it takes three

Three. That’s the number of times D and I passed through border control at Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport in 24 hours.  I think that this could only happen in France.  Here’s how… Air France currently operates only one flight daily from Paris to Toronto: flight AF356.  That flight usually leaves Paris around 2 pm CET and arrives […]

The name of the game is Progress!

I was listening to ABBA and the song “The Name of the Game” is in my head. No pictures today folks.  What?  Do you really want to see what the inside of a messy apartment looks like?  No people, that’s not how I roll.  The first real photos of this apartment will be once the […]

Breathing much easier

Just a brief post to update my earlier post. I stayed up as late as I could last night.  I figured I would go to sleep when my body could no longer stand being awake.  Shortly after publishing the post, and much to my surprise, there was a knock on the hotel room door.  On the […]

The waiting and learning game

Let’s get moving

Okay, maybe I’m stretching things here and I’m overreacting just a pinch.  It’s the way I feel though.  As much as I […]

Have tape gun — will travel

I am one with my tape gun. Although the tv show Have Gun — Will Travel was before my time, I am familiar with the title.  At some point last night/this morning, as I was wielding my super-duper tape gun, the title went through my mind.  Of course I changed the title to suit my purpose […]

New heights…of frustration!

So, it’s March 2nd.  I am ever so thankful.  There’s nothing special about March 2nd…except that it’s not March 1st.  This March 1st — yesterday – had to be one of my more challenging days.  I’m sure that D, my best friend and my love, was sure that I had morphed into a crazy woman.  I was […]
