Thank you all so much for the well wishes. It certainly has been an adventure!
I am writing this on Monday night because we are off early tomorrow and have 13 hours of driving to get to Chicago. Right now I am in Milford, PA staying at Keith’s auntie’s house (she is a lovely woman named Sheila!)
Today I finally got to see New York City. Google directions screwed up and took us through the city and we got to go through the Bronx and on the George Washington Bridge. I had always wanted to go to NYC and it was fun and exciting. Good thing I was the one driving, because Keith was a bit overwhelmed in Saratoga Springs. I could only imagine he would be crazy where we were. Right before being on the bridge , they had bottle necked five lanes of traffic into one because of construction. Gotta love city driving! My Chicago roots kicked in though and it was like riding a bike – not bad at all. I wasn’t even flustered. I suppose I can take on anything these days!
We also got to visit the offices of the magazine. Keith got to meet all the people there and the two sons that owned the company took us out to eat with Robert our editor, and Debbie his assistant. It was nice and fun and everyone had a great time. Then Keith got a tour of all the offices and was able to meet everyone else involved in the magazine. What a great day!
Tomorrow it is Chicago and my son. I truly can’t wait! I will have better computer access there so I should be able to post some pictures.
Windy city, here we come! :)
Have a great day!
I am going to turn in for now, but wanted to check in and let you all know where we are.
