I am in New York City! It feels a bit strange because the last time I was here, we were all so jet-lagged, sleep deprived and together. Now I’m here with my lovely brother and sister-in-law; we are all deeply engaged in our electronic devices, and the apartment is quiet. Very different from the soundtrack Lydia and Mary (and, let’s be honest and include me in that group) provided the last time we were here.
I just realized, I forgot my toothbrush! Normally, (TMI!!) Abe, the girls and I are gross and share in this scenario–which seems to occur every time we travel. And even though part of me is tempted to sneak into Clark and Swathi’s bathroom and steal one of their brushes, I will spare them if only because I like them so, so much.
How did I get into this predicament? Well, you see, we were supposed to leave the house at 9am to get to the Salt Lake airport in time, and at 8am every single member of our family was still in bed. So in one hour, I had to pack everything for this trip, tidy the house, disinfect the bathroom, cook up some eggs, and get myself dressed.
Meanwhile, back at home, Abe was busy taking care of the girls. His best friend, Anthony, along with Anthony’s wife, Malika, and their little boy, Emil, are in town. They all ate dinner together and had a great time. I can’t caption the pictures because I wasn’t there, but it looks fun!
