Things I realize – since returning from the States:


1.  I could have made a small FORTUNE if I had brought SCHOOL SUPPLIES back from Walmart

(They have increased by 25% in France and they were tres cher to begin with!!!!)

2.  My peanut butter is nowhere to be found

3.   The cushy toilet paper is found

4.  I’ve come back to a furnished apartment where I have just ONE of everything, not 3 or 5 and it’s a fact I have a whole lot less (than I ever have in my life) and like it a lot

5.    It helps not to have a basement

6.    The only thing REMOTELY like living in France in the United States – is NORDSTROMS, where clerks  are NICE, look you in the EYE,  offer assistance, smile and one is surrounded by superb quality

7.   My husband  really must have missed speaking FRENCH as he just now, spoke, entirely in French, to a woman who totally spoke English at our residency apartment in Marseille.  He really missed speaking French obviously!!!   🙂

8.     I miss my grandchildren and children

OH!  I found the peanut butter!!!(Thank you TOM & JOY) you made my day!  🙂

  1. So glad to hear you arrived safely. I cannot wait to read about Marseille and your adventures there. Since we didn’t get a chance to have a bike ride around Creve Couer Lake, guess I will have to settle for a ride through some of those villages in France. I am, however, good with the sacrifice. Now I just need to convince Tom. My bonus-child #4 (Tom’s youngest son, my stepkid) left yesterday to study at the University of Lyon. If we make it there, expect more PB and TP! lol….

    9. I am penniless! Glad you have peanut butter. Did you know it was first introduced at the St Louis Worlds Fair in 1904?
