Yep, another week without a meaningful update. Thanks to everyone who contributed how their last week was; I really like hearing about the people who come here to visit. To reciprocate, here’s how my weekend went:
This was my “golden weekend,” which means that I didn’t have any reason to be in the hospital from Friday afternoon through this morning. As luck would have it, it coincided with the wedding of one of Shannon’s best friends down on the Jersey shore, so off we went. (And if anyone tells you that racial profiling has gone the way of the dodo bird, I beg to differ; the only trunk that I didn’t see searched while going into the Lincoln Tunnel Friday evening was ours, belonging to the two white kids in the Mazda sedan.)
Friday night and Saturday morning was spent at Shannon’s house in South Jersey, Saturday afternoon and night were spent with a group of her best friends in a hotel suite at the shore, and Sunday was spent literally on the beach, watching a beautiful wedding. I got to see where Shannon grew up, I finally met a big group of her best friends, and I left the city for the first time since the World Trade Center attacks.
I have always felt that the only thing nicer than getting out of New York City is returning to New York City. Don’t get me wrong — the weekend was fantastic, and going on my first (mini-)vacation with Shannon went better than either of us could have ever expected. But home is home, and even in the wake of all that’s happened — and is happening — here, it’s really nice to be back.
(As always, please feel free to tell us how your week went!)
