I just returned from a one-week business trip to Paris, France. We were very productive, and met all of our goals. Woohoo!!!
Work-related travel is a necessary part of the j.o.b. However, coordinating phone calls with the family, specifically the boys, is a bit challenging. We manage, though. When I returned home today at noon, this was my welcome note. It accompanied a miniature Milky Way–my all-time favorite candy!
Love these kids!!! Luckiest dads ever…
For the last two weeks, our family has been eating on paper plates, using compostable silverware and plastic (recyclable) cups. Why, you might ask? The culprit, pictured below, a nearly 80-year-old kitchen drain pipe that decided to rupture leaving dirty water all over our lower-level. Well, after two weeks–assessing the damaging, trying to find the source of the leak–we knew, but had to prove it to the insurance company–get the asbestos abatement team out to remove old tiles and epoxy–we finally have our kitchen back. Now, we must focus on getting the insurance company to fix the rest of the damage.
Thanks for your patience… more posts to follow.

We started our late morning–we all stayed up until 1:30 am to welcome the new year–with breakfast at the Montclair Egg Shop. Love it! Shout out to Ms. Brenda.
I skipped making tamales. They are too much work!!! Christopher has a Mission project due at the end of January. One of the options is to develop a menu of foods that the people ate. Perhaps, we will make tamales. Any helpers???
