The return trip, door to door to an whopping 24 hours! We left our village at 3:30 am (8:30 MST) and got home from the airport at 8:30 pm MST. No wonder took me all of yesterday to get over it!
Even though I'd worn compression socks, my legs, ankles and feet were swollen and a Charley Horse woke me up in the middle of the night to tell me that my left leg muscle was seizing. It lasted maybe a minute but man did it hurt! Last time I had one, it was during my first pregnancy 23 years ago... I have to change my flight plans in future. Next time, we'll fly to Montréal for a direct flight to Marseille. No more milk runs for me! As we live one hour away from Marseille, it should cut down our travel time by at least 5 or 6 hours.
On another more positive note, here is a picture of the new vintage table and chairs we bought for our apartment this summer. Next year: knocking down the closet in the master bedroom and buying an armoire.
Our next trip is in about one year's time. As I am retiring from full-time work at the end of June 2013, we are returning to Provence not in July but toward the end of August for about three months...
A thought to build a dream on!
À la prochaine,
