I’m so happy to be home, NYC was a bust. My husband couldn’t leave the Hotel room he got so sick. Sarah and I decided to make the best of it and she and I had a good time walking everywhere. Lisa went out walking with us the first night and she pretty quickly learned that New York is not a good place to text while walking.
It was soooo hot while we were there. I don’t know if it was all the walking or not but I got severe pitting edema in my feet, legs and hands. Flying made it worse and I ended up walking barefoot at Midway airport. I slipped my sandals off while flying and couldn’t get them back on to save my life.
The shopping was awesome, I think the cheesecake was good, though it was hard to tell given that Rudy ate all of mine. I can’t rate the reuben sandwich I ordered because he ate that too!
We stayed at the New Yorker and had an incredible view. Our suite had a terrace and we could see Madison Square Garden, and the Empire State building was directly across from us.
There are a lot of lessons learned from this trip as well. I’m still processing what those were. One of them just might be that the third martini is almost always a mistake. If you ask for extra olives you get enough to fill you up.
