My super power of invisibility returned today! I had to run to the store before going to work. I walked up to the automatic grocery store door and it failed to open. I tried the exit - same experience. I then went back to the entrance - still no luck. As I started to walk to the entrance at the other end of the store I saw another woman approaching the unreceptive door. I turned to let her know that the door wasn't working - when I saw it swing open and allow her to enter. I decided to give it another try. I confidently walked up to the door, expecting a welcoming door swing - and was again denied entrance. Finally, using my brute strength, I allowed myself into the store. What is up with that? What does it mean when the "magic eye" cannot see you?
I have ridiculous amounts of things to accomplish before we head off to Paris tomorrow. That's right, Paris, Baby! I had all of these wonderful intentions of being organized and ready to go on Monday, so that Tuesday and Wednesday would be relaxing. (as travel guru Rick Steves recommends. He also recommends not getting sick before a trip...hmmm interesting advice.) Unfortunately, one of my employees has been out sick all week and I have been teaching extra classes. When I do that I have absolutely no energy left at the end of the day. Just enough for making dinner, helping with homework, and playing chauffeur. So, here I am at the end of Wednesday - actually Thursday - spending my time blogging. The amusing thing is I spent the first 5 years in the work force working for time management companies - see how effective I am?!
I have felt hyped up today with excitement...the best part is that we are bringing the girls AND we get to camp out at Marc and Michelle's in Paris. Pretty much the best of all worlds!
I figure my invisibility will have all kinds of advantages in Paris. First, I won't stand out as some obnoxious American tourist; second, all of the museums will be less expensive; and third, no one will see me lie down in the middle of the sidewalk when I simply can't take one more step. Have you ever been to Paris?
