With 2 of the 5 holidays done for the season, I am ready to quit eating…. but to be honest I don’t know how that will be possible with my upcoming trip in less than a month. I am so excited to be going back to Italy again. I will be arriving to Bologna and then I will go to my friends house from there. I will be spending New Years eve there and in typical Italian style…. be served so much food that I will be contemplating faking a headache just to get out of the amount of food that I will be up against. I can tell you now that in this battle of California vs. Italian Food culture, I will lose. For the past two years I have been lucky enough to spend not only New Years, but also Christmas. This last one my niece has banned me from going to Italy again during Christmas time, but I am allowed to go the day after apparently. Go figure…
After a week of no school or work I am ready to be going back, after a certain point I start to go stir crazy. I am definitely ready to be going back to work to see the kids after a week of being stuck in the house due to the smoke and then heavy rains.
