Back, I think....

Well somewhere among the mess is my camera with all of my photos.
To say we took NYC by storm would be putting it lightly.
We set the damn place on fire. I walked so much I thought my feet would fall off, and on top of it all gained 6 lbs. SWEAR. 6LBS....
As a side note, I am not sure how I could gain weight with ALL of the walking we did. Perhaps it was off balance with all of the food / drink. perhaps? Pizza at 11:30 could be the issue - but it was damn good pizza.

I won't give it all away, but here is a bit of a tease.
- I saw the Naked Cowboy
- I went to a psychic on the street; she scared the bee-jeez out of me. ( I called my mother FREAKED OUT).
- I saw Mama Mia on Broadway. The boys went to a Yankees game - had tickets right behind home plate.
- We rode the subway like no body's business.
- I saw all of the normal things (Time Square, Battery Park, Ground Zero, Brooklyn Bridge, Lower E. Manhattan, Coney Island.
- A few for the freak in me
a) we saw the side-freak show for a mere $5.00. Nothing like paying someone to ram a drill up their nose and then watch them lick it.
b) I saw a guy jacking off in central park (SWEAR). I had to make Lance stop staring.
c) We took several photos of funny things
i.) some guy passed out in front of the subway booth. Still dress in his shirt/tie, with his wallet in hand, cell phone, and keys. Lance put his foot by his head, as if to kick him, and I took a photo. It was funny. *we did not kick him, we did not touch him.
ii.) some bumm had a sign that stated ' We should do lunch, you buy.' I thought that was really witty so I gave the guy $5.00 and he let me take his photo ( I will share later).
iii) we rode in a car service from air port to the house, and I thought I was going to DIE. NY people refer to their driving as 'pushing'. I refer to it all as CRAZY.

All in all I think my kids were good. We missed them alot, and the look like they have grown. Isn't that weird. Everyone was glad to be home last night, we arrived at our house at 3:30 and just hung out for the rest of the day/evening. We were glad to be back to our space with our kids.
I have stories, photo's and more. Whew. I have to go- so much work to catch up on, and I have a night meeting tonight.

Mama Mia was Fun.
I was surprised at how much I liked it. I went into the show without any notion of liking it or not. I am not a big ABABA fan.
But it was a good time and well worth viewing.
