It has been nearly impossible to keep my mind on school and work this week. Just as a I start to research prices on equipment for my boss, or research homework at home, I get sidetracked and wind up surfing for things such as:
- Free and cheap things to do in NYC with your kids;
- Subway routes to and from La Guardia airport;
- Finding Joel's apartment on Google Earth; and
- Museum hours and info.
I was hoping the tree in Rockefeller Center would be decorated and lit when we got there, but according to the NYC websites I've seen, the tree lighting ceremony isn't until Nov. 28. Bummer! However, The Rink at Rockefeller Center is open, so maybe I can get some good pics of Jamie ice skating. I won't be ice skating, though. Don't think my foot can handle it yet.
The most important thing, though, is seeing Joel and Leah. I can't wait for them to see how much Jamie has grown. My brother, bless his heart, has even been researching online how to play Jamie's Avatar: The Last Airbender trading card game with him. Jamie will be thrilled, because I won't play it with him. I don't understand the rules, and frankly, I don't think Jamie does either. Each time I've attempted to play it with him in the past, what he says the rules are changes. I think once Joel figures out how to play it, he may be the one teaching Jamie how it's really supposed to be played. Can't wait to see you guys!
(And yes, to my Kentucky folks, I'm really looking forward to seeing you guys, too! Love you all great big bunches!)
