Time to break out the Christmas music!
I might get used to this two-hour decorating scheme instead of the two weeks I can spend in Alaska. Of course that also includes doing the outside of the house...no need for outside decorations when living in an apartment.
And it is soooo dark in Alaska...my decorations stay up past New Year's. I miss it!!!
I had my final French visa renewal appointment for the year. Today's appointment was remarkably quick...but only because I was accompanied by a French speaking assistant, who is an American...and who didn't take "No" for an answer.
Tomorrow I will be cleaning the apartment for my son's arrival.
There is a taxi strike going on throughout Paris right now which will impact picking up our son from his flight coming into Charles Degaulle Airport. The taxis block highway lanes...all but one....which grinds traffic to a crawl. I will have to meet him at the airport and navigate the train system and metro system with his big suitcase. A major pain since lots of stairways are involved...very few...if any elevators. Sometimes there are escalators but only going up...and very few of those! It irritates me so much. Not what I want my son to have to navigate after traveling for almost 24 hours.
Time to get back into the holiday spirit.
