living vicariously....

thru people who love the city as much as i do.

have i ever told you i pray at night that s.mac and i will get called on missions for our church to the big city when we are old and decrepit?

i do. i love manhattan. s.mac, not so much. he gets twitchy and nervous, and okay - i will give him a break, there were 2 strollers involved on our excursions plus the subway. not fun. i always tried getting him there, every weekend our bodies claimed stake to close proximity of the place. but - he hated it. period.

when i was 8 months pregnant, my redhead was supposed to graduate. we were apart for 5 weeks while he finished up and i settled "winds of love" into a kindergarten routine in our new state. our plan was to have me fly out for his graduation and we would hit the big city, just the 2 of us. i had plans for food, food and more food. possibly we were going to slide some broadway in there as well as some shopping.

life happens and we had a sad family tragedy. s.mac came home the minute he heard and missed his graduation. i love him. we also missed our weekend in the big city. it was my chance to prove to him that he indeed loved the big city, just not with 2 strollers. we have never gotten back. life still happens and we always find an excuse or a reason to put our green somewhere else. tragic isn't it?

thankfully, i can live vicariously thru these folks and get my fix

heidi: my couch is waiting for you. and if scott decides he'd like to come along, we've got a queen air mattress. thanks for the shout out... i'll be waiting for you. today i went on a walk and window peeped in all sorts of beautiful brownstones and i really did think of you and your fondness for old homes.
