The Plan

I have these great visions of the next year.  Jed furiously writing his dissertation, the kids being extremely occupied with the homeschool curriculum we've signed them up for and me having all sort so free time with which to read, write and blog.  Let's all cross our fingers that this is how things roll.  Okay?  Pretty please.

Yellow Bird on the Move Again

I reserved our truck this week.  It's official.  Jed's super nice parents offered to let us live with them for one year in Ohio while Jed finishes his dissertation.  This way he can be done with it and not have to worry about juggling it and work/commute/stress.  And then we're done.  And hopefully this time next year he'll have an official teaching position somewhere and the Yellow Bird will be moving once more.

Foreign To Do List

I'm beginning to think that I was too young, inexperienced, and whatever the opposite of well-read would be, to have enjoyed Europe as much as I should have.  Not that I didn't enjoy it, but there are so many more things I wish I had seen, done or eaten while I was over there.

I went did a study abroad program through BYU to London in the spring of 1999 focusing on Shakespeare and theatre.  While there I visited Scotland and on the way home I spent two weeks making my way through Spain, Switzerland and France. 

I just recently learned about macarons (not to be confused with macaroons) and now I've decided I need to start a list of stuff to do in Europe if I ever go back.  Here goes:


Eat macarons in France.
