Number of work deadlines: 4 Number of days the kids have been off due to vacation or snow in the past week: 3 Number of family members with suspected food poisoning: 2Number of times my husband reminded me that I typically find beauty in that which is falling apart: Just one - that is all it took. I'm worn out, my friends: Snow delays, bad deadline timing, projectile hurling. Through it all, I'm thankful to have a husband with a sense of humor. He reminded me how much I love the worn and weary buildings on Rue de Trois Freres in Montmartre. I found this photo and it made me smile. Now back to work.
