It’s May! And tomorrow, it’s officially 8 weeks until I’m back in Saskatoon. How crazy eh? And to think I started with 42.. Life is going well. I don’t really know what to think anymore, whether it be excited to come home, sad to leave, or scared I’m not going to fit everything else into the short amount of time I have left.
The friends (Katie, Steph, and Donna) arrived Friday at noon and I spent the entire weekend with them! It was great to see them all again and to be able to know that they were only a 20 minute walk away from my house. On Friday, we went to my café and ended up staying there for three hours, not cause we wanted to but because the waiter kept forgetting to give us our bill. We then went back to my house to talk over some peach juice (thanks Steph!) and then we ordered a pizza to eat before they went back to their hotel. Saturday was our shopping day. We went to the Rambouillet market and explored all the stores downtown, then went to my café for the usual morning chocolat viennois. We got some Chinese food to go and went to Saint-Quentin to continue our shopping. That evening, we ordered another pizza and I spent the night with them in their hotel. On Sunday, we got up nice and early to get to church. We then went for falafels and afterwards, tried to find their apartment that they’d be moving into later in the week. I was the tour guide as usual so I was leading the way in my nice, purple dress that I bought the day before. Now picture this: Four girls walking down a busy street in the middle of Paris, not on a sidewalk but in the middle boulevard island thing – a nice, open space. I led the girls over a sidewalk grate when all of a sudden, a metro HAPPENS to go by underneath me, making a huge gust of wind flow up to expose my entire backside to the street! Well at least now, no one needs to pay for a Moulin Rouge show…I ended up getting the most catcalls I’ve ever gotten in a given ten seconds. Oh well, life goes on. I’m over it and I think it’ll leave a fond memory for everyone involved. We spent the rest of the day on the island of Paris, one of my favourite spots. On Monday, we all met up at the café again and then walked through the castle grounds. I haven’t seen my friends since because I’ve been working and I won’t see them again until Friday but I’m pretty sure we have a fun weekend ahead of us. I hope everyone’s having a great time and I’ll see you all in 57 days!! Love always
