Have you missed me lately? Life has once again come in between me and my beloved blogging.
It has now been one week since my laptop went kaput and the French equivalent of the Geek Squad, like all things French, lacks timeliness and so I wait. My generous husband has offered up his desktop for my enjoyment, but it is just not the same. Lucky for all of us, he preemptively backed up my hard drive days before the crash; maybe he jinxed me.
And so I am confined to blogging and posting from my phone, so please forgive if I have neglected you. I promise I will visit soon.
The weather here has been unbelievable lately. You would hardly recognize Clermont-Ferrand. The sun has been shining and one would think that Spring has arrived. This has also contributed to my lack of focus.
We are also making a trip to the embassy in the near future for all things administrative. Living the life of an expat abroad is not all glamourous. In addition to the many things we will be doing at the embassy, we will be registering for Noah's American birth certificate, passport and social security card.
On a related note, you have not lived until you try to take a passport picture of a two month old. It took three people nearly a half hour just to get a shot that "might not be rejected". I'm crossing my fingers and hoping for the best.
I also had to stop by the office this past week to interview for a new position. There is nothing like being on maternity leave and having no idea what you will do next. Here is hoping I "wowed" at the interview because his new job sounds awesome.
In in other baby news, I have an interview with the office daycare to secure Noah a place. We have been on the waiting list since May of last year, yeah it is like that.
Hopefully life will get back to normal soon.
