Thanks to the universe today!!! My son got home today from his summer camp happy. I signed him up for a program that is from a company called NOLS. It’s similar to an outward bound program. Let’s just say that he wasn’t very happy about going. For the last two weeks I have tossed and turned worried that he was miserable. Praying he wasn’t getting injured on this outdoor backpacking trip. My son’s dad has been mad at me because I pushed him to go. He arrived at the airport today and has been talking about his trip nonstop. Said it was the hardest thing he has ever done but he learned so much. I had no idea it was a course that was pass/fail. He passed. He learned Land Navigation and loves to navigate maps. He hungout with the emergency medic and learned about medical treatments. They had to ration food and they learn how to cook for themselves. ” Mom my specialty was Pad Thai.” Well pad thai was noodles with peanut butter and butter.lol. I am so relieved. ( Didn’t shower for two weeks. Showed up with a mustache and a patchy beard. ) Literally wore the same clothes for two weeks. I had all his favorite foods made for him today. I am so so relieved. Comicon next week. San Diego bar get ready.
Morrocan food today . I am ready to come home. I miss the kid who is backpacking in Washington State. Love him so much . Today the reality of how much I have eaten and drank during these lessons is apparent . We have learned a lot. Today the female contestants for the Finnish Paradise Hotel were filming by the pool . Daniel and Kevin stationed themselves by the pool the whole day to make sure they saw these women . Both of them are completely burnt from their full day of voyeurism. Tonight tapas and the reenactment of the French invading the Spanish village of Gaucin IMG_5722
We are staying in a very remote mountain hotel. There are a crew of Finnish people filming B roll for a supposed reality show . Word with the hotel manager is that they believe its actually a porn shoot. ” Leslie if they have a filming of a gang bang we have to watch .”
Awesome day. The menu was tapenade , rabbit with olives and sun dried tomatoes , and a vanilla custard . Wow we learned a lot .
“What a man vomited on a girl while taking a body shot ? “Freaking disgusting
Please universe never put me on a 9 / 10 hour train ride with Kevin and Daniel. Lee and I were so frustrated with the antics that we jumped in the first cab at the train station and hid from them once we got to Marseille.
Marseille was beautiful and now we are in La Cadierre D’Azur . So so quaint and beautiful . Cooking starts Monday !
Hard to get away from work when you are with coworkers . Key West is haunting me even in France .
