Home is Where the Heart Is
Well, we've made it back to Paris, ensconced in our little garret and feeling just fine. We thought for a quick minute to have escaped our usual horrible jet lag when we slept through the first night after a genial evening spent with our friends C and J on their last night in Paris before leaving for Italy, but the gods were just fooling with us.
Last night we juggled sleep aids at 3:00 a.m. and I've just woken at 11. Gene is still asleep and I'm wondering whether to let him stay in dreamland or make him get up and face the world.
Although we missed E's big birthday party, which was fabulous by at least five different accounts, she and D are still in Paris and thanks to E's wonderful idea, we'll be dining with them at Restaurant Petrelle, where the party took place, to get a bit of the atmosphere we missed.
We've got a month's worth of catching up to do. Stay tuned (now that's a phrase from the dark ages...does anyone still remember when you 'tuned in' to radio and television?)
