Playing hooky

Life has been so busy lately. I think pretty much my strategy is going to be "ceasing to expect it to calm down".

It's just not going to happen in the near future (the calming down, that is). Today is the day that I am taking my kids to get their passport photos taken. From here on in I believe that life will be a whirlwind of passports and visas and applications and packing. I'll be sure to let you in on the fun.

The other day, though, I had a list as long as my entire body of things to do. It's tax receipt season, the kids and I weren't quite done with school for the day, and I had bills to pay, things to mail, furniture to polish. Well, no furniture to polish. But photos to edit, emails to write, laundry to do, dinner to make.

But it was sunny for the first time in weeks. We did all that could be done. We jumped.


We climbed.

We slid.


And we went around the world.

(New post up today at LJUrban.  Wherein we wander the streets of Paris, looking for a home. Or a restaurant.  Something like that.)
