I Leave Soon for Paris
I'm going to Paris to visit my daughters, and I'm looking forward to it with eager anticipation
City of Light, Here I come
Thursday, May 3rd, I will be flying to Paris for a three-week stay with my two daughters, both of whom live there. Now, every time I mention that both my daughters live in Paris, I get an incredulous stare and the by now predictable response: "Both your daughters?"
This is the story: Tracey, my youngest, back when she was in college in California, spent a semester studying at the Sorbonne, and as many do, she fell in love with Paris. She also fell in love with a Parisian man and ended up marrying him. Tricia, just a year older than Tracey, after spending ten years in Taiwan teaching English to little kids and businessmen, decided in 2004 to leave Asia and spend some time traveling before coming back to America. She visited her sister in Paris for a planned summertime stay, and she, too, fell in love with a Parisian and ended up marrying him.
I'm going to meet my grandson
Just after the New Year my daughters called and surprised me one day by saying they were sending me an airline ticket to Paris to visit them, so off I go.
On April 20, 2010, Tricia gave birth to a son, William, and I am very eager to meet him - my first grandchild.
I have yet to visit Paris in my lifetime, so I am eagerly anticipating my daughters showing me the sights. I'll be gone for twenty-one days, and I'll miss my wikinut family, but - truth to tell - possibly not that much.
