Manic Monday...
It hadn't happened for a long time, but this morning, as I was walking to the subway, I got The Bangles' "Manic Monday" in my head. :) It reminded me of when I just moved here, and I not only had problems getting up in the morning, but I also had problems coming to grips with the fact that I was living and working in New York.
"But then came the day
I climbed out of these safe limbs
Ventured away
Walking tall, head high up and singing
I went to the city
Car horns, corners and the gritty
Now I am the proudest monkey you've ever seen
Monkey see, monkey do"

The parents were in town this weekend. It was fun... lots of family, all three days. We looked at places for the Rehearsal Dinner in the Bronx, did a little shopping, hung out with Grandma and Dad's sister's family, then Mom's sister's family. Like I said, all family... all the time. ;)
