Things have started to be taken away from us. Good bye desk, you have lived with me during 10 of the 11 months; you have seen me cry, you have seen me laugh, you have seen me work, you have seen me writing my blog, you know my darkest secrets. And you chair, you have … Continue reading

Did I tell you we’re walking around the house everyday after work? It’s already the beach season, and this year, unlike last year, we’ll be enjoying it to the max once we’re back home. Because of this, there is no way I’ll be wearing my swim suit with this body sculptured lately with a few … Continue reading

Tomorrow is the Pentecost; it’s another one of those religious holidays celebrated in the secular country that is France. On this occasion, the city of Croix organizes each year, during the week end that comes before the holiday, a funfair. They close the road that takes to the center place, and start putting things up … Continue reading

I have the pleasure to announce you that we have turned the heater off at home 🙂 I went through my old posts, and found that we turned it on on October 17th!! 7 months!! I’m sure that’s a record; 7 months of heater in Lebanon is like 7 months in Hell! This brings in … Continue reading

For the second consecutive day I prove to myself (and to the world) that I am nothing but a big baby! I was working this afternoon when suddenly, I turn my head and what do I see from the window? IT WAS SNOWING!! I’ve been nagging about it ever since winter has started and it … Continue reading

Why do French don’t work out their brains too much? Is it because everything is made up so simple for them with signs and detailed explanations that they got used to not think anymore, or is it because they don’t think at all that everything has to be explained to them with signs and detailed … Continue reading

We have finished our Christmas shopping today; we’re ready to fly home now 🙂 Actually we haven’t quite finished yet, we were so busy getting everybody else’s presents that we didn’t get time to think of ourselves. The truth is that I could have gotten Francois’ gift today, but something happened that prevented me from … Continue reading

You know what’s the biggest advantage of living in Croix? I cannot hear the war siren!! So the Germans can come and attack us I wouldn’t know (and I wouldn’t care to be honest). At least my day is not cut off by a creepy sound! The biggest disadvantage of living in Croix,however, is that … Continue reading
