I need to rest my mind because I am a bit overwhelmed at the moment. Nothing is working.  Well, that’s not true.  The hotspot is working.  Otherwise I would not be able to get the internet.  But the in-house Wi-Fi is not working.  And, I don’t know how to access it.  Neither does my landlord.  So, I have a problem.  Also, my printer is not working.  And, I have several important documents that I need to print.  Alas and alack!   I don’t know how to work any of the machines, and there is no room in many of the cupboards.  So, I am a bit overwhelmed at the moment.  Oh, did I already say that?  Sorry.  And the Monoprix is a maze of stairwells and departments with a gazillion people in all of them, all of them in a hurry to go somewhere.  Alas and alack!  I think I already said that, too.  I keep telling myself to do one thing at a time, but which one thing?  There are a gazillion things to be done.  And, it is only Day 3. Oops.  Well, so far this has been going well.  But, ……Now, not so much.   I think this area is too crowded with people.  Lots of energy.  Too much energy.  Or maybe, I need a shot of vitamin B12.  Stay tuned.  I will write more when I feel better. Tomorrow.  Words of encouragement will be very much appreciated.  At least, I just got home from eating a good meal —– only to find my access blocked by some tenants who are moving out.  All of this needs work.  Is this what I meant by get a “jump start”????  Stay tuned……

unnamedIn that picture, the printer doesn’t work; the TV doesn’t work. I finally got power to the hot rollers and the pencil sharpener.  I desperately need to take a shower/bath.  But, I don’t know where the washrags are or anything else.  Stay tuned……  Oh, BYTW, the cat is doing GREAT!!  Eating and using the cat box TOO MUCH.  There is not room for any more garbage outside.  When the hell do the garbage collectors come in this town?  Now is the time to remember not to sweat the small stuff!!!  The world is in total chaos, but I must worry about matches for my candle.  And, cat litter.

  1. This too will pass. You will get it all figured out and be able to look back and laugh at some point. Keep your head up and keep on smiling! Your new journey is just beginning.

  2. HI, I hope things are better today but if not don’t be discouraged – you have plenty of time to figure things out, don’t you? Your daddy would probably say “Rome wasn’t built in a day”!!!!!

    I wish you the best.

  3. Don’t be discouraged, Rome wasn’t built in a day. You’ll be fine, just get some rest, Missy has the right idea. How well I know Paris is always in a hurry. I dread having to come there.
    I also have to go to Ill de France. It’s about 26 miles from Paris after stopping 14 times by train. Anyway, when you unpack, you’ll feel better. Good Luck.

      1. Île-de-France is a region in north-central France. It surrounds the nation’s famed capital, Paris, an international center for culture and cuisine with chic cafes and formal gardens. The city’s landmarks include the Louvre, home to da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa,” the iconic Eiffel Tower and Gothic Notre-Dame Cathedral. Outside Paris, there are forests, grand châteaux and farms, including dairies that produce milk for Brie.

      2. I’m sure you’re right, but I stayed in that place for 2 weeks after John bought it & I hated it. Every time I wanted to go to Paris It takes me at least 30 minutes to get there. I can’t figure out exactly where you are located That’s the one I wanted to sell, but it brings in too much money. I stay right in the heart of Paris. I am so close to the Eiffel Tower
        I really can sit on my commode and watch the light shows. I like that one okay.
        I have to renew leases every April. I hope you are well.
        I will look at my deed and see what it says. Thanks ! Take care of yourself. 🙂

      3. It doesn’t sound like you like any of it. 30 minutes is nothing. Well I am sure you can sell them so you don’t have to make a trip every year. I wish I could buy the one in town. What arrondissement is it in?

      4. The one I like is in Paris, the 7 . I love to cruise on the Seine and it’s beautiful at night. The other one in I’ll-de- France is out in the country, mine is on a golf course. I’m sure John spoiled me because he took care of everything and all I had to do was fun stuff. I liked shopping there, bought fine jewelry and clothes there.
        I enjoyed lunch on the second floor of the Eiffel Tower.
        We walked everywhere and went to a lot of theatre. John spoke 5 languages,
        John was a great surgeon and had friends there that host me when I go there.
        I hope you didn’t receive the wrong message about how I feel about Paris, I still love 💕 Paris, but my heart is not exactly I. It after John died.
        I miss him everyday and always will. Sorry this is so long.
        Take care of yourself. ❤️
