Now, this is Bob's bed. Can you see the resemblence yet? In the second photo, you can see my closet which is behind the bed. Some days, I think I'm going to break my neck trying to get to my clothes.
Now, Tom and Bob are alike in so many other ways (other than their need for neatness).
Bob definitely resembles Tom. When we go to back to school night, the teacher always comes up to Tom and says that he must be Bob's Dad. Okay... their hair is a little different. Bob's hair is blonde, long and he has a lot of it. As Tom keeps telling him, enjoy your hair while you have it.
Tom and Bob also have the must contagious belly laugh. Our landlord came over one day - she lives in the building next door. She had been bumping into the other people from our building. They all told her that it was so wonderful to hear laughter coming from our flat all the time. Did I mention that their laugh was also loud??
Also, they are both extremely smart and quick on their feet. I never can win an arguement and I end up being more confused than when I started the arguement.
I could go on and on...but you get the idea.

I think many people stayed home today but Tom decided to brave it and go to work. On average, it takes 45 minutes each way. Today it took Tom 1 hour to get to work and 1 hour 20 minutes to get home. Not too bad for black Thursday.
Thanks Leesa for sharing the above picture (which she got off the internet). I still haven't mastered that skill yet

Leesa and I then headed over to the Marais. The rain had stopped so we had a wonderful time window shopping...well, we did a little more than window shopping...
Leesa knew a great place for coffee - Le Loir dans la Théière (the dormouse in the teapot).
So, we stopped for coffee and I just couldn't resist the meringue. I was definitely craving lemon today! Leesa had the Swiss chard soup which was a much healthier choice and just as good.

He had a late night at school (jazz band and career night) and desperately wanted sushi again (and to avoid my cooking). So, we met near the Seine for sushi. Bob ordered the sushi boat and enjoyed every piece of raw fish!

I had le feuilleté saumon à la oseille avec une salade frâiche et du fromage. It was incredible!!
Barbara, Leesa, me and Aimee
It was a great opportunity to meet friends who were from so many different countries (Finland, Tunisia, India, and of course France).
Blue skies after leaving the restaurant...

We don't have a car (and definitely don't need one in Paris), so I use the metro, buses and I walk a lot. The public transportation is great here.
My first stop today is the ATM...
Next the glass recycling green thingy...yes, that is my lovely grey cart in front of it....
Then, to my phamacy to pick up my prescription. My eye doctor gave me a prescription for moisturizing eye drops because my eyes get so dry during the winter because I spend a lot of time outside where it's cold and windy...the temperature under the green cross on the left side of the picture is in celsius 8°C (about 46°F)...
And then onto the orphanage. This is where I donate all of our clothes - a lot of them are clothes that "Bob's" outgrown....
Next, onto my second food store. I guess we are a family of picky eaters. Since the food stores are small I have to go to many different stores to get everything that we need...
After a quick bite, I'm off to get my haircut and highlighted (oops...not a natural blond). Sondra, the owner, does my hair. She's French but spent time in LA and NY cutting hair.
Bob and his friends.
This is what happened when I told them that I was going to put the pictures on my blog. I'm so not cool!!
