I'm actually very proud of the double entendre of my post title today.
Stealing just a few minutes to post these pix from the new Rice Denmark catalogue.
It's a triathlon kind of feel here, i cannot even begin to explain.... Okay, fine I'll explain. Last week my mom was in town so I put all work aside to spend time with her (Sears, Khols, Mervins and Kmart here we came! Apparently this is where very chic French women of a certain age and girth prefer to shop.)
The day she arrived I unsuspectingly and naively, (before picking her up at the airport) scheduled a small procedure involving precancerous cells and cryotherapy of a part of my anatomy I rather not discuss in polite company (too late, heh). They told me it would not be painful (sorry but it was) and they certainly did not warn me about the ensuing sloughing that would last for weeks afterwards. If you haven't heard of the treat that is sloughing, girlfriends, trust me when I say some google searches are better left postponed indefinitely.
Only had one little bit of an escape running to Belette Rouge's totally fab housewarming party. I got no work done whatsoever, although I found the time to peek maniacally at reviews of Hidden in Paris on Amazon which are lovely enough to make me want to do summersaults if I only knew how, with one very grumpy one that came out of left field, as though the woman had read an entirely different book or something. Please check it out and tell me what you think if you have a minute.
My son is graduating from High school this week, we're both going to an orientation to USC next week, then he's off backpacking through europe for a month, something like ten cities (i'm not super comfortable about that as you can imagine. Have I mentioned i still make his bed, by choice) and then we're off to the East Coast, Boston, Vermont, New York for a while.
You overachievers out there listening please tell me how successful multitasking is done? All i seem to do is run around crazed (and go to the bathroom to... slough.) I need to promote my book. That's priority number 1, 2 and 3 and I'm not doing it at all.
