The past week or rather the past year has been in anticipation of today, tomorrow, and next week. Tomorrow I am going to Paris, yes, Paris, France, the place with the Eiffel Tower. I will be travelling with Julie, my stepmother, and the cremains of my dad who passed away last year. My dad was born in 1933 and lived a happy life he had many accomplishments three of whom will be in Paris together to celebrate their father’s life. It has been hectic in the house lately. Beth has been busy cleaning, organizing, cleaning, and organizing. She has literally been working herself silly getting ready for Julie to arrive and stay the night. William and Olivia are excited about greeting their step-grandmother. William met a few years ago but he has not seen her since 2004. Olivia has never met her and it is an opportunity to meet a person who has had an important part of my life. I will be picking her up tonight at O’Hare. She will stay with us overnight and we will depart Saturday afternoon for Paris and six days with my two brothers – Warren and David.
I know these days will count. I will be working to add daily content – so please check back and follow our journey. I will follow up on the other side of the Atlantic.
