the staycation

this is the first spring break in a while that i haven't gone away. for a variety of reasons, it didn't seem to be the year to leave the city. instead, i'm visiting the york city. i worked pretty much most of the first week of break, saw a bunch of friends, went out for lunches and dinners, sat on the steps of the met with a friend and laughed about doing the same thing in high school, saw a couple of movies, and walked my butt off. the weather was beautiful.

the plan for this week, the second week, is broadway with a quick stop off broadway first. apparently, every year i say to zach that i should take him to stomp since he loves percussion. and every year i forget. well, this sunday i'm finally making good on it. a friend is coming in from the beach with her 2 boys and i'm taking the 3 boys to stomp. 3 teenage boys and loud banging should go together perfectly.

broadway bound on monday beginning with american idiot. another teen dream come true...the music of green day set to a story. by wednesday we go back in time - to an era that's more mine - when we're seeing the addams family. morticia and gomez, lurch and cousin it, wednesday and pugsley, uncle fester and fingers are already starting to snap. the week ends with a real ny moment. we're going to the opening of a friend's play, red. zach's first broadway opening. pretty cool. 

wwcd: this staycation has reminded me that we already live in an amazing city and really appreciating it makes it more special

  1. Yes, we jaded NYers forget that millions of people come HERE every year for THEIR vacations . . . and it's a GREAT place to visit . . .
