It's back to work today from vacation.
Between jet lag, the fact that I think I'm getting sick, and the fact that the girls are being extra loving this morning, I'm really not in the mood.
There was a grasshopper in the house this afternoon. The girls were quite excited by it!
Here on this Summer Solstice I find myself wishing it was winter.
The temperature is too high, the days too long, the sun too bright, and the air too polluted.
I'm drained both mentally and physically and won't be able to refresh unless the weather takes a major change. Maybe if I'm lucky there will be a modest hurricane - at least rain and wind would be a pleasant change.
At this moment I am overwhelmed with joy and relief, having just returned home from a conference to find the letter from the Italian government certifying that I am now an Italian citizen.
Even though I haven't slept well in days, am brain dead, and my body is tired beyond belief, I am so, so, so happy that this three year process is over.
It was a very, very long day yesterday, but at least I made the news.
I know it's a chain and all, but I really like having Piola in Atlanta. Now I can finally have tuna and onion pizza, which is, by my estimate, the best taste known to man.
Today is a good lunch day :)
