Giddy Southerner Invades the Big Apple!!

Wow, it’s Saturday already? *scratches head* Where’d the time go? I’m up to my eyeballs in edits and I'm working on a legal brief, BUT tomorrow I leave for New York, New York!

*screams and dances around* Be glad I wasn’t dancing naked, you really would have gone blind. ;-)

Big apple, here I come!! Er…me and all my luggage. *giggles* I went nearly homicidal when my husband informed me I had to whittle it down to one suitcase. Is he crazy?!?! It’s in the low 80s here and in the high 60s there, how in the hell am I supposed to know what to bring? I need everything! Not fair that the airports put such limitations on us. So, yeah, when he started talking money and how an extra suitcase would cost extra, I did discard some stuff. *grumbles and bitches ridiculously* I decided I didn’t need two pairs of clothes for each day, except for the nights we attend Broadway. So, I managed to get it all into one suitcase. Miracle! LOL Seriously, because I believe in going on vacation armed and prepared for any occasion, most of the time I only use about half the stuff I pack. :D

I’m so excited I’m about to combust. Or at least I was until my seven year old started asking who was going to get my toe ring when I died. That moment was a mixed bag of emotions.

First thought: It’s a silver toe ring!! *facepalm* It’s worthless, who the hell wants it? And it doesn’t even rate a mention in the Last Will and Testament.

Second thought: *stuffs fingers in ears and sings loudly* Not having this conversation!

I don’t want to talk about dying when I’m about to get on an airplane! Nope, not really a great time for that discussion…for me anyway. LOL But my seven year old, he’s obsessed with death. So, I don’t believe he was having any premonitions and I’m not getting any bad vibes. Around my house, “death” for my seven year old is a big conversation piece. We’ve discussed dying until I finally pulled my Last Will and Testament out and showed him who his guardians would be and what all he gets of mine. *shakes head* I really wish he’d get beyond this stage…soon! Grrrr

So, anyway, I’m headed to New York, it's just me and my husband—Whee! No kids! Even bigger WHEE!—and I can’t freaking wait! I’ve never been there before and I want to see it all! Everything it has to offer! Any of you have any great advice?

I wish I would have known sooner. We could have gotten together. I live about 30 miles from the City. Have fun!

Cool! New York sounds awesome. Some place I would just like to see someday.
