a warm and foggy winter's day, new york / january 13, 2013
We are freshly back from our trip to New York. We had a great time catching up with my cousin and her baby who were in town from Chicago, and we ended up staying longer so that I didn't have to brave week-end traffic, and just because we could. I took almost no pictures, went for lots of long walks in the fog, tried to enjoy the unseasonably warm weather without worrying that winter will be a thing of the past in a few generations, and indulged in having a TV in my room and an en suite bathroom all to myself. Of course Little Smith was crazy excited to see his dad when we got home (and I was pretty excited too!), but we had fun on our mini solo adventure.
I am a little disoriented and feel like it should be Friday, but it's only Tuesday. Being a single parent through the week-end always tuckers me out for the next week and reminds me of how lucky I am to typically get that two day break from being responsible for every diaper, every meal, every whine and complaint. I'm also once again behind on all responsibilities, so much for catching up!
