menu planning: the MIL is coming addition
I have not been in a mood to blog as of late. As you may have guessed by, well, the lack of blogging going on around here. I’ve got a lot on my mind these days. Most of it is good, but most of it would be of relatively little interest to you. Point in fact:
- we’re starting the paperwork to become Belgian citizens. It’s a long, confusing process. And it’s all in French. Or in Dutch, if you prefer. (I don’t prefer.) Plowing through the paperwork is taking a lot of time. It will be worth it in the end, but oh, goodness the drudgery. And I’m a person that likes doing paperwork.
- my French course is all I can handle. And more. Much, much more. I’m learning a lot, so I’ll continue. But I’m beginning to think that what I need isn’t another, more advanced course. No, what I need is to get out there and actually use my French. I’ve found some volunteer opportunities that would be really good for me to take on. Except, because of my French course, I don’t have the time to go out and apply it. Ahh, the irony.
- My mother-in-law is arriving Wednesday for a two-month stay. In stunning coincidence, my house cleaners have apparently quit on me. Guess what I’m doing for the next few days?
