Yes, we're at that stage of our planning for our Paris trip...making a list and checking it twice. No trip worth its salt would be complete without one of Priscilla's patented lists. While we are crossing things off the list, I have this feeling that it'll still come down to a mad dash at the end. When we finally make our way to our seats on the plane, I suspect we will all collapse into them. One thing's for certain, when they come by offering the free wine, my hand will be among the first to be raised high.
It's amazing all the details you have to think about when you're taking off for a couple months. Our trips to Glacier are child's play next to this. One thing we have done for peace of mind is to hire someone we trust to check on the house while we're gone. Her name is Laura Myers. She is the oldest daughter of our good friends, Peter and Karla Myers. Laura lives practically just down the block in Golden Valley, so it is convenient for her to stop over here a few times a week. Opal the cat will be staying with my Mom at her condo. Opal and Giovanni, Mom's cat, got to know each other well while Mom and Karen were down in Florida.
Our direct flight to Paris leaves at 4:50 p.m. this coming Saturday, arriving in Paris at 7:10 in the morning. We plan to Uber it to our flat at 24 rue Saint-Paul. Most of our time in Paris we expect to be using the Métro, but on our first day in Paris, with all that luggage, we're going to splurge on Uber. Anna will be joining us for our first week during her spring break, and then on the day she heads back, Kirstin, Derek, and Cora show up for their spring break. We'll make sure nobody gets hit on the hind side by the revolving door.
I expect we'll be posting updates every few days, so stay posted.
