How do you spell that again?

I don’t have any videos for you today. Not that I couldn’t come up with some. Today I finished cleaning my room, now tomorrow I just have to fold all my laundry. I also caught myself up on the first 3 episodes of both How I Met Your Mother and The Big Bang Theory. Good times and chuckles all around.

I’m playing around with the idea of another self-made video…this time with me and the piano. I have no idea how it will work sound wise, especially since I think I’ll have to stick my computer on top of the piano. I think that’s a bad idea, but we’ll see. First I have to practice some more and brush up on my piano skills. They’ve been a bit neglected the past two months.

Lucie arrives tomorrow night! And then Sunday we’re off to Brugge. You know, it’s spelled two different ways here (French/Flemish), all the big towns/cities are, and I can’t remember the English way. In French it’s Bruges. Actually, I think that’s the English way too, at least that’s how it’s spelled on one of my English guide books. So the Flemish is Brugge. Now that we have that figured out…..

I almost forgot! Today when I picked him up from school Bastien saw me before he got to the gate. Since it was sunny and warm (a lot warmer than this morning) he had his hoodie in his hand, his back-pack on his back, his jacket open, and his hood up. Why the hood I have no idea. When he saw me he started saying ‘Holly, Holly, Holly’ and made his way as quick as possible to the gate. I know that’s how he greets him Mom, it’s nice that he’s happy to see me. Sylvain was like that to. He started bouncing around like crazy in his high chair when we arrived. Who am I kidding though, he was just excited to see big brother ;).

  1. Your life sounds incredible. While I know you were stressed about certain events in your most recent posts, I would just love to switch places with you just for a day, haha!

    • Why thank you. You could have switched places with me on Wednesday, lol. It only sounds so outrageous because I’ve done a bunch of stuff in the last week. Normally things are a lot slower :P. I wonder what I’m going to feel like when I’m back home and back into ‘normal’ life?

  2. Ooh, you’re gonna miss that kind of greeting! You may have to get a dog when you return home. Other than an excited toddler, dogs are about the only critters that greet you like you are the best person on earth!

    • I will miss it :(. My family has had at least one dog all the time. I like dogs, I do, but I don’t like the hair. It’s like I like cats, but I don’t like sitting in their hair. Just knowing me I don’t think a dog is in my near future. Unless I get married, have kids and it’s a family dog, lol. I like big dogs because I consider them dogs. Little dogs can be annoying, but are so darn cute! We were looking at mini Yorkshire Terriers at one point, I liked those. The pet store owner said that if you have lots of visitors when you first get them, and they get used to people coming to the door they won’t bark as much. That’s what we didn’t want – a little dog that yaps all the time.

  3. YOU and the piano together in one video??? WE = very lucky! Can’t wait to see what you do, Holly, be sure to let me know because I am lame at keeping up with all my online stuff. Seems to be growing daily. Been missing you though so was nice to see what you are up to 😛

    • Hey no worries! I’ve been neglecting a log of blogs lately. I will let you know, for sure ^_^. Thanks for your encouragement!!

  4. It is always great to see kids laughing and smiling when you have been away, even for a few hours or a couple of days. It just melts your heart all over. 😀

    • You’re right, it was so great! Especially when you’re not sure what mood he’s going to be in. Although, he’s always happy to see me when I pick him up, lol.

    • It’s so great! I loved it. I already commented, but something went wonky and I can tell if it worked so here I am again, lol


Any thoughts? I'd love to hear them!
