never my 7-year-old grandson forgets what he is supposed to be doing and does something else instead, he tells me, “I got distracted.” We both consider that an explanation, not an excuse.

That’s also the explanation for why you didn’t get the link to the recording of the relationship interview we did a couple of weeks ago. So here it is now, with apologies for the delay:

It’s called Rethinking Relationships and is on a page with loads of other interesting looking teleconferences. You are welcome to listen to any of them.

I’ve been distracted by supporting my family in reconnecting before, during and since my daughter moved to Paris with part of her family nearly 4 weeks ago. That involved as many as 9 extra people sleeping at our home on at least 2 different nights.

I expect to stay distracted for a while longer. Next week we will take our two oldest grandsons (ages 7 and 10) to Paris to join the rest of
their family.

I don’t expect to see much of Paris right away because their furniture just arrived a couple of days ago and the 2 1/2 and 4-year-old boys will have kept her too busy to get everything done. We’ll be helping her get organized.

(By the way, Rachel is doing a blog about her adventures. You can see it at )

Next we are going to Dublin for a week’s pure vacation before returning for a more relaxed few days in Paris. This really is just fine. We have been to Paris several times and love it and we have never been to Dublin.

Meanwhile, in the midst of this chaos (that I volunteered for and enjoyed) I have been invited to write for two different very busy websites. I am thrilled with the opportunity to reach more people and I have told both groups that I can start in Septermber.

In fact, I feel like I am starting a whole new life in September!

I hope you are having a wonderful summer. I promise I’ll be back…after I’m through indulging in all of my wonderful distractions.
