Back en France

Well, I'm back in France after a wonderful trip to the US.  I actually got back a week ago, but I have been so depressed about returning to Paris and to my horrible job that I haven't been able to motivate myself to post.

My time in the US was incredible and I was very busy trying to squeeze in time with family and friends.  Unfortunatly the weather wasn't very great and it was cold and rainy most of the time.  We did have a few days of nicer weather though and luckily the rain held off for my friend Lindsay's wedding, which was the main reason I went back in May.

Overall I'm pretty happy with everything I managed to do and everyone I managed to see (though there were more people I really wanted to see, and I just didn't have the time).  I saw the new Cleopatra exhibit at the Cincinnati Museum Center, went to a Cincinnati Reds game (though it was raining and freezing), did all the stuff for the wedding weekend (rehearsal dinner, wedding, reception, etc), got my taxes done, did a ton of shopping, ate a bunch of delicious food (including Mexican, bbq, real hamburgers, etc), went to Hofbrauhaus (my favorite bar in Cincy) with my brother and some friends, saw a lot of family, celebrated my dad's birthday, spent time with a bunch of friends and ran some random errands such as getting a hair cut (since I hate doing it in France because they never do what I ask).  Even after all this, I still managed to find a little time to relax, though not much since I also couldn't stop stressing about having to return to my stupid job.

Go Reds!

Congrats Lindsay and Tom!  a beautiful wedding!

  1. Sounds like a great time back in the US and I know how you feel about coming back here. I always feel like I can't fully enjoy my time in Canada because my mind is constantly stressing about the return to work too. I'm seriously counting the days I have left at my job - it's the only thing keeping me going. If not, I'd have had a nervous breakdown by now.

    Good luck with getting back into the swing of things and we really should meet up one day for coffee!
