“We’ll always have Paris” Rick said to Ilsa in Casablanca…while Barb said to Ray…”We’ll never have another November 2017 so I better get posting.” The month has flown by with lots of activity. Always a good thing.
After a successful trip to Paris, it was wonderful to come home to hubby. It was a sweet reunion. I am looking forward to returning with him in tow. More about that later.
Hubby had a successful surgery earlier this month and day by day the pain lessens. Big Yay! The cancer (hate that word) doctor will be visited next month…not worried!
Okay, since Paris was a work trip (which I took some liberty with), I didn’t visit many of the iconic tourist attractions. I didn’t even see the Arc de Triomphe. Seriously, I don’t think it is going anywhere, anytime soon. Pretty sure it will be there when we return. I met some great people and I am excited about introducing Ray to them later next year. Oh yeah, we are pretty sure where we will be landing. Maybe not the actual town or village but the area has become clear to us (in many unbelievable ways). Viva la France!
I did get my hair cut while there (more important than seeing the Arc de Triomphe). With the Paris trip on the heels of Ireland…no time to schedule an appointment. The way I look at it…it’s just hair, chances are it will grow back. I walked into a salon I visited years ago and ended up with a great cut. No photos, no selfies.
We made it through our third Thanksgiving without J.W. on earth. July is not a good month to die because it is the middle of the year. July 1st, really not great. This will be his third Christmas in Heaven, third New Year’s day (also two and a half year anniversary) and January 3rd… third birthday in Heaven. He’ll be 35. And finally on July 1st 2018…three years in Heaven. It feels like forever, it feels like yesterday.
Okay, on a lighter note…busy writing. I think it kind of saved me. I am very thankful for that. At my lowest low, opportunities came from nowhere. Well, that is not entirely true. We know where they came from. Duh…
So now…some pics instead of my rambling.
Well, there you have my quick overview and my official post for November. This weekend we will celebrate Ray’s birthday along with our decision.
Have a great weekend friends. If you took the time to read this…many thanks. If you took the time to leave a comment…HUGE thanks.
