Today I took a minute and glanced at the calendar. Only to stop and do a double take. It is already the 20th of November. This means that I have been in Bordeaux for over two months and I will be returning to California for the holidays in less than 30 days. Say wha?
Truth be told, I’ve been too busy to mark the passage of time closely. I knew in the back of my head that the holidays were fast approaching but I didn’t quite realize how close it was. To be honest, even though I don’t have any time off, I’m not really going to miss Thanksgiving and the holiday shopping madness that is Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Of course with work I can’t remain completely ignorant of it but I get to watch the ridiculousness from afar. But I am looking forward to going home for two short weeks. It will be nice to spend a little time with my family and friends in California.
But that visit is still 30 days away…I’ve got to get back to work.
