French word of the day: dénégation

Def: denial

The state I've apparently been in, only now getting around to packing two years' worth of shoes, clothes and household stuff for the movers who come at 8:30 tomorrow morning.


  1. Tomorrow morning. It is almost here. I totally understand the packing thing. Love the word. It is now one of mine... a good one for me, denial is a state I find myself in .. often.

    Bon Voyage honey ! See you in NYC in no time!!!

  2. You can do it. Have a safe trip.

  3. Hope your packing went well!:)

    Been in The Hague for 8 months and I'm proud to say I've hardly bought anything (thank God!)... but I still dread the day I will have to pack;)

    Dont forget to pack Milo....

  5. lol. Mandy, Milo comes with me on Friday... god help us both!

    The movers came this morning and removed 12 boxes... a good chunk of my life. I hope it surfaces in NYC before too long (oui, Helen, moving back to NYC)!

    Merci for the well wishes. xo

    He is a trooper, that cat!

    Safe journey home to you both. Your Paris insights will be much missed...... looking forward to the book though!!

  7. Oh, I hate packing - I hope it went well! i'm so excited (and sad) to read about your last days in Paris. I know you'll make them great. XO

  8. Oh, so sad. This brings me right back to my final moments in Paris. Only I had months of shoes and clothes to pack, instead of years. Same feeling though. Je t'aime Paris.
