NYC was magnifico. Really mind-boggling freedom and fun. Captivated by the eclectic pulse of the City. Great to be home, but I'm feeling a titch guilty as I'm thinking right now "Man, I wish I were back in NYC just for one more night..." I did miss the fam like crazy, let there be no mistake, and it was divine loving on my kids and seeing their eyes again.
Loved our little boutique (and affordable) hotel, right by Central Park, recommended by my cuz B. Weather a little dismal, as we were a bit water-logged for a couple of days, and about froze our chawangas off the last day with the wind. Posting a few photos now and will add some later--gotta go to bed and recover from my sweet vacation. Isn't that always ironic? McSuperman handled the kidlets with aplomb, although after I got home, he retreated to the bedroom and wasn't to be seen near or around the common areas of the house for 5-6 hours. I feel your exhaustion, McHadIt.
WICKED was just that--w.i.c.k.e.d. I'd seen it in Chicago a couple of times, but this time, we got to meet Elphaba, Glinda, the Wizard, Nessarose, the very handsome Fiyero (my sisters and nieces were going crazy for this guy) and some monkey dude outside the stage door. HELLO!! I almost for to mention that I saw my boyfriend Dan Abrams (of MSNBC fame) near Rockefeller Plaza. This I'm sure of because I yelled out "DAN!" and he turned around and stared at me. Before summoning security. Susan swore she saw Ina Garten (Barefoot Contessa). My decade long crush on Dan came to a screeching halt after I noted that he is about 5'1. I mean, I could probably bench press the dude. Moving on.
