Sorry for the radio silence around here, but there are BIG things in the works in both my professional and personal life that seem to be sucking away all my writing time. The biggest of which is that we are preparing to move back to the U.S. for a couple of years. This decision has been on the table for a while now but was only officially made a few days ago, and now we’re in the process of setting it in motion. Busy times ahead.
But if I can take a few minutes to relax and breathe, here’s what else I’m doing currently…
Loving: Long May weekends, time spent planning and dreaming as a family, my Mother’s Day love from my girls (we celebrated it yesterday in France).
Thinking about: How I need to take one thing at a time so as not to get overwhelmed by all there is to do. First up–cleaning out and organizing the apartment so we can get it on the market.
Anticipating: The upcoming long weekend which we’ll spend in the mountains, attending a friend’s wedding and enjoying some hiking and other outdoors fun.
Watching: Parenthood. After finishing up my re-watch of Gilmore Girls, I discovered this more recent show with Lauren Graham, and I’m really enjoying it (I’m up to the third season now.)
Listening to: Labor Day by Joyce Maynard on audiobook. Thanks to those of you who gave me some suggestions per my recent request, I’ve got other stuff on the burner for when I finish this one. And apparently the book has just been made into a movie?
Eating: The first ‘summery’ foods of the season–tomatoes and zucchini, salads and gazpacho.
Wishing: That I could slow time down and really enjoy these last few months before we leave without all the attendant effort of preparing for the move. I am determined to stay as zen as possible.
What are you up to today?
