Totally Frenched Out

I am very excited - my boxes are supposed to be coming today! As a little background, I had six boxes that I'd left at my SIL's house, and I'd been desperately trying to find a way to get them to Paris. None of the shipping or moving companies would touch them with a ten-foot pole because apparently summertime is high moving season and they couldn't be bothered with my piddly six boxes. I finally found a nearby English family who was willing to drop the boxes off at my place on their way to Eurodisney. It's costing me 100€, but that's still way cheaper than any other option I found, plus I'm getting door-to-door service (assuming they can find their way here).

I packed those boxes roughly six weeks ago, and I'm not exactly sure what's in them anymore. I know one has my shoes, so I will no longer be limited to the three pairs I've been wearing since late April. Another has my purses - yay! As for the rest, I think there's one with my books, one with teaching materials and one with ????. It's going to be like Christmas all over again! Now I'm just going to have to do some creative arranging in order to find room for it all....

I hope that everything arrives in time and in good shape.
That was an idea for moving your stuff...

Sam, this is wcs, another american in france. I'm using Ken's id to let you know I've been enjoying your new blog and new adventures.

I can't believe I was just in Paris and didn't get it together to contact you. What a maroon, as they say.

I'm wondering if you can add me to your reader list. Not sure how to do it, so let me know if it's ok with you then what I should do.

Hope the boxes come through with no problems.

Best. Walt.

Awesome! Enjoy that. I have some boxes still in the US for over a year and I have no idea what is in them. I know I accidentally packed my favorite pair of Adidas, but I highly doubt I have any purses in there. ;-) Anyway, enjoy your Christmas in June.
