So it is now August 11 th and my head is spinning! As I sit and listen to my grandchildren giggling upstairs, I realize just how much I am going to miss them these three months that I am away.....and they will miss us too!!! The back room is full of suitcases and piles of clothing.....take it......leave it many Euros to take.....which credit cards to use......can I get all my bills online.....will my herniated discs cooperate. I have made contact with the Caravita community in Rome where they have Mass in English.......yes, I am getting excited!!


  1. I am so excited for you!!! My daughter is just plain jealous!!! I hope you can upload photos fro viewing-I look forward to reading your posts. Love you!!!!

  2. will definitely have photos, filled with love!!! As for your daughter, I never got to Italy until I was 45, so she will get there too someday!!!

  3. This must be a mixture of excitement and stress at this point. But few more weeks and you will enjoy Italia!!! I am sure I need to add to this a touch of sadness at leaving your grands behind

  4. You got that right, Lise!! Think how you feel when Julian is not around!!
