So, they got everything in the apartment. Our one wish when moving, "not the couch". My new leather couch. Not as bad as it could be.
So, Brandon and I start unpacking a few boxes and make the kids room a priority. I decided to do it first, because they need a place to play while we work...scratch that...while I work. Brandon, likes to busy himself with electronics. Makes him look busy and cerebral.
On that note. Movers arrived Monday. Tuesday afternoon Brandon leaves out of town till Friday.
But wait, must first rent a car to finish the little stuff. He wanted to just make little trips back and forth on the bus. You know, save a little cash. So, I sit and do nothing... I let him do the first of one of his many little trips. On his return he decides it is probably best if we rent a car. It is always much better when it is "their" idea. So, he finishes up the loads and once inside the new apartment settles comfortably on the couch in front of wires and paper work...looking very cerebral. "Peg, I need to get this finished before I leave." O' now is a good time to mention that he had to go buy a new TV...since we had the car. A must before every business trip. O yes, and that cerebral action left me with no working TV and an apartment that looked like this...
So, I hired myself a husband. Only in the form of a little lady. She was a fabulous husband for two days. She never asked "why". She never said "wait a minute"or "no" or "no" did I mention she did not say "NO". She said, "Okay, Madame, what you like next?" Ahh...sweet husband. So, tomorrow I will post pictures of our work.
In the meantime I will close with two great shots.
The first is "my" stroller. Everyone in France has a rolling cart. Think about it, no Tahoe or Suburban to haul back your loot from the store. So, they use these crafty little carts, that I have grown to really envy. Until now, I have used the stroller handles and my child labor in the form of Jaylee. But today, I am officially French. With just a bit of flare...all carts are generally black. Hey, I'm from Texas, and I'm not fooling anyone with my command of the French language...
