Just under 2 months to go until I get on the plane to Paris. Just put the house up for lease. We’ll see what happens. That’s my biggest concern after work. Yes, I’m still very worried about work because I’ve been there so long, I want to make sure the transition to the new person goes very smoothly. I plan on coming back to my job after my year off, so you can’t take that attitude of, “let them deal with it”. There are other things to prepare. This Tuesday I go to the French Consulate in Los Angeles to interview for my long term visa. I had to get a police clearance letter, I have to show them I have enough money in the bank to support myself as well as write a letter in which I promise not to engage in anything that would be considered employment. I hope they don’t ask for anything I don’t have on me, as the Consulate is not down the street. In fact, I’ll have to take 1/2 the day off to go up there, have the interview and come back down to the OC and get back to work. Wish me luck.
