Voici les nouvelles: je n’arrête pas d’écrire dans mon blog, ni d’organiser des événements FCP. J’avais d’autres priorités à régler ces derniers mois (année?) et je suis désolée d’avoir été absente si longtemps.
Maintenant je me sens sortir de cette crise! Une nouvelle page Lire la suite →
I’m not closing down my blog nor stopping FCP events. I’m sorry I haven’t been around as much as I would have liked to these past months (past year?) but I had other priorities to attend to and. It was hard and I was going through a crisis.
Well, I feel like I’m coming out of my cave now! Turning a page and 2018 is going to be a whole different story! Lire la suite →
Feeling guilty I wasn’t out there building it with them. But I needed my time alone.
This picture was taken in January 2013! What a great memory. I took it out to say how grateful I am to have such a lovely family. Christmas time is for kids but also for a fun family get together.

I’m not going to organize any new FCP (Family Cafe Project) events for a few months, maybe forever. I have new plans for tomorrow…and I’m letting the signs guide me.
So this is our 6th « rentrée scolaire » here west of Paris! I can’t believe it. My kids are entering 6th and 7th grade and they’re in the same « college » which is such a relief.

In a few days, my life will drastically change from being a stay-at-home-taxi-mom to two wild teenagers, a caretaker to a senile and absent minded 90 year old mother-in-law, a confused « conseillère municipale » to a baffled Town Hall (although I am head over heals with our new President Emmanuel Macron), and Lire la suite →
Some of you may have noticed that I’m not very productive at the moment with my blog and events. Unfortunately I need to take care of a very difficult family situation, as well as everything else… Being a stay at home mom and all that jazz… Lire la suite →
