Wow, well yesterday was an unexpectedly exciting day for me! Just when I thought I was going to spend a quiet day at home, peacefully recovering from the strep throat that ruined the rest of my week… guess what, I was wrong! :ohmy: :biggrin:
This is how it all started (picture the scene)…
It was fairly early on a Saturday morning and I was [uncharacteristically] still sleeping soundly. Daniel nudged me saying “JESS JESS, I am going to go to the gym but I want you to rest until I get home.” :huh: OK, NORMALLY it’s “JESS… GET UP, TIME TO GO TO THE GYM… NOW!!!” I figured he was just giving me a break because with the meds & recovering strep I was not about to go work out.:pinch: I actually woke up about 20 minutes later feeling TOTALLY fine & with only a slight congestion left.
Daniel returns home, plops himself on the couch, & says “Do you want to go to a movie today?” Ehhhh, not really. “What do you want to do?” Ehhh, I don’t care. Then Daniel says, “Well, I’d REALLY love to go to the Nintendo World store in NY, & get lunch at our favorite BarBQue place, and we can go to the World of Disney store if you want.” :ohmy:
OH OK then, now you’re talkin’! He THEN informs me that we’d be able to catch the 12:25 train if I hurried up & got ready. IT WAS 11:20 :eek:, we’d have to leave the house by 12 noon to get to the train station & get tickets in time! :eek: ACK, I hadn’t even showered thus far, & let alone get ready for a day in NYC!!! For some reason I just threw all panic to the wind, hopped in the shower, threw on whatever clothes I found, & grabbed a sling purse [I hate carrying things].
While I was getting ready Daniel kept insisting on “getting my purse ready” [he knows I’m a regular Mary Poppins carrying the well-stocked carpet bag at all times :laugh:]. “JESS, JESS… what do you want in your purse???” After the list of cough drops, tissues, inhaler, tylenol, hand sanitizer, lip gloss, bottled water, etc… was accomplished I was done getting ready.
We rushed out the door & Daniel said, “MAKE SURE YOU HAVE EVERYTHING BEFORE WE LEAVE THIS DRIVEWAY!” I opened my purse to check & [besides the laundry list of pharmacutical goodies] THERE WAS AN ENVELOPE…
WITH THESE… :ariel: :ariel: :ariel: :ariel:
PS: I took this pic later in the evening that’s why it’s dark Also, because this was a very impromptu trip for me I had NO CAMERA, only my cell. :sad: So please excuse all the cruddy pics :pinch:)
