Carte de Séjour Watch

Have you ever seen the movie, The Jerk, and there's that scene where Steve Martin is jumping around yelling "The new phone books are here, the new phone books are here!!!"

Well, that was me on Friday, only I was screaming "My new Carte de Séjour is here, my new Carte de Séjour is here!"
And only six months late. Pin It

I love that movie!
"bring us some fresh wine"
(or something like that)

I'm relived

I didn't think it would actually arrive either. we're still trying to get my husband's

my melange,
You'd think after five years it would be a faster process, but each year it takes longer.
Bizarre, non?

zen chef,
merci! Oui, j'ai gagné!
I'm so happy!

I always think that when the new phone books arrive. Crazy how pop culture gets embedded in our brains!
