I am exhausted...I was exhausted before I got to work, but I have been playing catch up all day on top of that...nap...I need a NAP! I also need to mow the 1 foot of grass in my backyard...anyone want to do it for me???? :-D
Oh, and unpack, and do laundry, and fix my laptop, and write to you crazy people...whew...BUT, I am going to blow off most of that to go see Mr. and Mrs. Smith tonight with a couple of friends...I totally need to do something fun after the last week and a half. Everyone's like, did you have a good time in NYC? Because when normal people go to NYC they get to have fun there...Unfortunately, we were up at 8am taking phone calls from concerned relatives, and didn't go to sleep until 1:00 or 2:00 am every day...and we worked the entire time in between, save for an hour or so for dinner...it was worse that actually being at work! MUCH longer hours, that's for sure. We did manage to go to Little Italy and Chinatown for dinner a couple nights, and we went to the Museum of Modern Art for an hour and a half or so...And I spend some considerable time underground in the subway tunnels...oh and I got the MOST wonderful chocolate at Jaques Torres' chocolate shop in Soho (he has a show on the Food network...)...We got a HUGE basket of chocolates from there to send to my grandmother's office to say thank you for their concern and understanding over the last few weeks...I SO wish I worked there so I could partake in that one!! YUM!
But at least my cousin Rob was there...he kept me sane--almost...Everyone say hi to Rob! He reads my blog! Poor Rob...he probably thinks I am a moody, insane bitch...Sorry Rob...too many emotions, not enough releasing and you get Rachel, "The Mega-Bitch-Moody-Insano-Girl" Do me a favor and just remember the girl you hung out with in Austin and ignore the Mega-Bitch-Moody-Insano-Girl from last week...she's almost back in hiding now...I promise...oh and my mother and I are speaking again!! :)
I'm back! Loved the city this time, hated the trip...BUT I can now get from 14th Street and 7th Avenue to just about any point in Manhattan by subway!! A true accomplishment for me. And my grandmother is doing much better. Thank you for all of your well wishes. I am sure they helped. Looks like I may be up there again soon...I will keep you updated...
