Empire State of Mind
So we're off to make the other half of the family (and friends) a little happier. Next week I'll be traipsing around the mean streets of Manhattan, which are only mean because they're sticky, smelly and hot in August. Both children will be in tow and we're going to hit all the usual suspects.
"Haven't we done that already?" asked Child #1. I swear she yawned when she said that but it could be because she'd stayed up late the night before, not because she's too cool for Alice.
The Guiness Book of World Records Museum in the basement of the Empire State Building made the cut. There are plans for a father/daughter luncheon, when my husband can slip out of his office, at an overpriced illustrious New York City restaurant. As for Child #2 and me, our lunch plans will probably be more along the lines of Shake Shack or Gray's Papaya.
But enough about us...what about you?
I have no illusions that my energy, bunnylike though it may be, will be sufficient to shephard two small children around, meet up with family and friends alike and then live to blog about it at the end of the day so I'm going to take a two week break.
Unlike Jay Z, I have a feeling those streets will (not) make me feel brand new. But hopefully the big lights will inspire me. After all, I'm a writer, and I'm not particularly fussy about where I get my inspiration, as long as I get it somewhere.
I'll see you all in two weeks, fully inspired and ready to go.
