Summer days in the South of France

Me Okay so the truth is I am having a difficult time working from here. Sending emails while my 4 and 7-year-old are in the pool is just not an option. Making telephone calls while my son screams “caca- doons!” is also not what I had in mind. It’s like all of a sudden I am a mom of 2 kids and have to work from home. oh wait. I am. Right, so the only way I will be able to get anything done around here, is to wake up earlier than everyone else. Much earlier. and then leave. just kidding.. well, sort of. But how early is early? 6am? not going to happen. 7am? not going to be easy..what’s wrong with me? just one  week in the beautiful South of France, and I have all of a sudden shifted from my high-strung, high achieving self to relax mode?! just the thought sort of makes me want to start hyperventilating. I am not a relax person. Doing nothing scares me. I need my daily list of 10,000+ things to do. I’m an all or nothing type of gal. I grew up in Lake Tahoe for heavens sakes..

But then..there is actually nothing wrong with relaxing and enjoying my summer days. Right?

quick someone get me a paper bag..

    Oh dear. Well, it’s only been a week. Can you get them to nap or take some down-time after lunch? My seven year-old is comatose-like after lunch during vacation and just stares at the tv. Fortunately, my almost three year-old naps. This summer we won’t be going to Nice-Antibes. Instead, we’ll be leaving for the States to visit some family. I envy you. In my ten years living in Italy, I’ve become a francophile. You can immagine how that goes over with my Milanese D.O.C. husband! Buona vacanza!

    • Yes, I can imagine I also have the Milanese husband😳Actually my kids are actually quite good – it’s me & the organizational part of knowing when to close the laptop and be mommy or visa versa that becomes a challenge! That’s funny we should have gone to the U.S, but have decided to stay here. 😎😎thank you & buona vacanza to you!
