I'm going to Paris!!! In September!!!
Yes, you read that right. The Big Guy is taking me along on his conference this year to the land of Ooh La La!
Why have I kept this a secret? Well, I had no passport and I had no babysitter. These two things are really important when you're planning a trip to Paris. The Big Guy bought my plane ticket about 4 months ago and said "You better get on it, girl!" So, I got my passport last month and it really began to seem real. I thought, "hmmm, I might really be going to Paris!" Then I thought, "oh yeah, I have 3 kids..."
I've been calling and begging and bribing and begging and now I have most of my vacation covered as far as child care goes. I have to cover 2 1/2 more days and I'm of to Gay Paris!(and unbelievably, a very nice lady - who is a retired school teacher I met last- week expressed some interest...OH YEAH!) I haven't been able to plan a THING until I worked out the kids. To tell you the truth, I really didn't believe I would really go. But now, I'm ready to pull on my vacation-nazi boots and start planning!
I want to kiss here:
I want to see this while holding my sweetie's hand:
I want to eat this:
I want to wear this:
I want to...Okay, I need your help! What do I want to do??? Much of my days are scheduled in the "spouse program", but we do have some free nights and some whole days to fill here and there. I know Aimee will have some fantastic ideas for me (what was the address to your favorite street again?) but what about the rest of you? Tell me what you always dreamed about as a little girl, tell me where you've actually been, tell me where your aunt's best friend visited while in college...I want to hear it all!!! I'm going to Paris, people!
