Our HomeAway from home. . .

We've decided on a home to rent.

May 2010, but we are waiting to confirm the second or third week.

The owner is lovely; I've been emailing with her all week.
Here are the pictures from the lovely woman's website:






After reading about this picture, I was tempted to go in February:


It seems that in February, Villefranche’s fishermen celebrate Carnival with a Bataille des Fleurs (Battle of Flowers). They decorate their traditional fishing boats, parade around, and throw flowers at each other and all the spectators.
How can I not want to go to a place like that?
Also, Brody had his 14th surgery on Friday, July 31st. Hypospadias repair. It's been his most painful recovery. I've been married for 7 years, and I've never talked about a penis as much as I've talked about one with Brody since Friday. "Mommy! Don't hurt my penis, okay????" "Wanna go outside and play, Brody?" "No! I have a owie on my peeeenis."
Finally, I am doing "media opportunities" for HomeAway. This afternoon I'm being interviewed by a local newspaper, and then Monday, the 12th, J, B and I are going to be on a local TV news program. A four-minute segment. We go to the studio and are interviewed live.
We are having silly absurd days around here.

OMG! A kitchen on the balcony! It gives me goosebumps. How long do you get to stay? A year would be nice...
