Bought the ticket!

Posted in planning tagged , , , at 10:59 pm by Fat Girl Dancing

After debating back and forth with my mother, Travelocity, Priceline, and my friend Wesley, who is also going to France as a Teaching Assistant, we finally bought my plane ticket on Tuesday! 

Wes bought a ticket on the same flight, so we’ll be going over together.  We probably won’t be able to sit together, but it’s my goal to take some xanax and dramamine and SLEEP my way through the flight.  I’m still very nervous about flying, especially in light of the recent Air France disaster from Brazil.

I’ll be leaving Cincinnati on September 15th and arriving in Paris on the morning of September 16th.  I’m hoping to spend that week in Paris before heading on to my assigned city in Bordeaux (I still don’t know exactly where I’m going yet!)

I had a bit of sadness last week when Alexandra, the cat I had been hoping to take with me to France, became very ill.  She was not eating or drinking, and after much testing it was discovered that she had lung cancer.  She still refused to eat or drink anything, and so it was time to put her down.  I miss her terribly, but I’m glad that she’s no longer suffering.  She was 19.

It does mean that I will be going to France just me, myself, and I.  I will miss having a kitty in my house so terribly! 

For now I’m just waiting for my arrêté — my placement of city and school in France.
