Back from vacation

Well, my amazing month of vacation in the US is over and I'm back to Paris and the daily grind of metro, boulot, dodo.  I got back on Wednesday morning, though I was supposed to get back Tuesday morning (thanks US Airways) and have a day off before I went back to work.  Instead I got back on Wednesday and had to hurry to plan lessons, get ready and head off to work.  Pretty rough end to a wonderful vacation!

I'm sorry I didn't post at all from the US.  I thought I might have time to put up a post or two, but I was so busy visiting with friends and family that I just never found the time.  So, blog readers, I am sorry.  But I'm back and I have a ton of things to post about in the next week or two!

As I was saying, I was extremely busy while I was in the US visiting friends and family.  I was also busy showing Lionel around Ohio and we did a ton of shopping in the US since things are so much less expensive there.  We also spent a few days in the Smoky Mountains relaxing and hiking with my family, and then we headed down to South Carolina and spent a week at the beach on Hilton Head Island.  While we were there we took a day trip to Savannah, Georgia to visit the city.  All in all my time in the US was great and I wish I were still there rather than back in cold, gray, rainy Paris (it was hot and sunny the entire month in Ohio!). 

But now that I'm back I have to look forward and work on trying to improve my life here in Paris and in France, and I think I have some changes coming up that might make a big difference!  But I'll be writing about all that soon!

Hope everyone enjoyed their vacations!!!
