The Christmas trip is fading fast...

Well, here we are, the first of November and we have not bought any airline tickets and the rates are going up again so I guess we wait...we still could do it...less than $1800 for two tickets, still, with dog sitters and parking, not to mention about $200 a day while we are there (and the Euro rising fast) I think we stand by and see what the mid winter brings us in the way of specials...

Last week our local Italian friends gifted us a really cool espresso machine...Lelit...pure Italian and pretty easy to get a real good cup of expresso from (check out the poor sentence structure...ending in a preposition...my mom would not be happy). But, what it does well also, is to keep us close to our Italian dreams...living a little more Italian every day...pretty soon I will insert a few Italian phrases into this blog to show off my language skills, which, are developing more slowly than this blog...

Are you bored, yet?

Speaking of bored...there is nothing more boring for me than to sit here, knowing that there is an open invitation for us to visit our "Italian Family" in Assisi and stay in their condo in Calabria for a week or so as well...and we cannot bring ourselves to spend the money to get over there, at least not right now...

How irresponsible would it be to not pay your house payment for two months...getting two months behind, just to fulfill/feed this obsession with Italy and all things Italian...

Check back with me in a few weeks and see if I decided to be irresponsible...
