I'm back. My family just returned from vacation to New Mexico. We were gone for five days. I had such a wonderful time. I really had no idea what there was to see, and my husband and I sort of just picked it out of a hat without researching anything (weather, sights, presence of deadly animals), but it turned out to be just the thing I needed. There were wonderfully bizarre shaped rock formations and a whole different architecture than we get in Manhattan.
I now have one month in which to finish the Undersized Urbanite contest and plan a sixth birthday party. And, I have three months until the end of the school year, which is always a countdown I cherish. So, back to work for me!
I have crooked teeth from my parents and a wacky arm from a stroke. My daughter describes me as funny and smart, while she describes the other Linda from Mommy and Me as pretty and nice. So, I'm not pretty nor nice. I love the French people, French language (I'm fluent), French food, culture, architecture... In short, all of France! I'll read anything in front of me. I know more about middle school math than, well, anyone, INCLUDING my middle school math teacher husband (let's see if he reads this). I'm not happy if I'm not painting something.
