It's barely spring, but I'm already looking ahead. That's just how I am. It's very difficult for me to live "in the moment" as they say. I need to have things to look forward to. And this summer I have a couple of doozies.
- U2 concert, July 15th, in Nice!!!!!! Henri said that it's wasted on him and that he doesn't want to go. I know, the horror! I asked people I knew here if anyone wanted to go with me, but the problem is that it is right in the middle of the busy summer season. So I asked Erica if she and her husband wanted to go and she said, "Yes!" So Henri and the girls will stay at the hotel while I rock out. Ha ha.
- The next day we are flying from Nice to Dublin, Ireland! I have wanted to go to Ireland for a long time, but time-wise or logistically it never seemed to work out. Some of our tail-end summer plans got canceled (hopefully we can reschedule for another time) and so we had some time to play with and I suggested that we finally do Ireland and Henri agreed. So we are renting a minivan-type car and will tootle around the Emerald Isle for about 6 days before heading to:
- Canada/US. We'll be doing the usual split time between the two families. It will be nice to be there for a bit longer of a time in the summer. I had enough snow last trip to last me for a long time.
If anyone has been to Ireland and has any must see/don't see words of wisdom, please send me an email or leave a comment. At the moment, I am trying to decide if we should stay in Belfast, or just do a few hours there.
