Oh ma bonté!

"Oh ma bonté!" means, "Oh my goodness!" in French.

It is the sound of a French person who is perhaps shocked, overwhelmed or generally freaked out.

It is also the sound of a Longmontian mom who will BE in France....WITH her whole family....FOR two weeks....IN less than a week.

And that Longmontian mom HAS started to write her to-do list. But she hasn't yet started checking things off the to-do list.

And, oh yeah. One of the Longmontian mom's daughters has a science experiment to finish and project-ize before they all leave the country.

So the Longmontian mom is freaking out.

Oh ma bonté!

Are we supposed to feel sorry for you??? You're going to France. All you need is the passports and a few pairs of clean underwear. (A little stinky is fine, you'll it right in!)

Have a great time, I'm sure you'll get everything done and won't remember any of this --- you'll just remember those beautiful girls eating eclairs and oohing and ahhing at Versailles.
