The countdown in my head has begun. It's now, for some reason, more real than it was just a few days ago. I remember before we left, the stress and tension I was feeling, having to pack our lives, get everything in line, tossing $ around left and right to get stuff settled. I don't feel that same sense of urgency yet, I guess because there's not much we can do. We've gone ahead and set up cancellation of the phone, Internet and gas/electricity, but although the French bureaucracy for these things involves a lot of paper and receipts and appears to be very official and final, my experience has been that it's sometimes not.
For now, we relax and enjoy these final, salad days.
