i live in nyc, love pedicures but not manicures, will not wear heels above 2 inches but can appreciate those who do, will never be accused of being a fashionista and will remain loyal to my uniform of sorts.
this is my virtual scrapbook of things i love, interest me with the occasional personal thoughts thrown in.
also, do not expect correct grammar & punctuation here, we spend enough time doing that elsewhere!
I got into Ukraine late in the evening after 30 hours of travel and about 2 hours of sleep. I was looking forward to sleeping most of the day, but woke up early to a text from my translator: “School begins today. So if you can find a school by 9 AM, you’ll find Ukrainian children with flowers in their hair.”
50 cent martini lunch sounds like a good way to kick off the weekend!
however, i’m working from home while sitting w/ head full of henna (some people do laundry, i cover my greys)
anyway, mara’s homemade used to be east village and they closed up shop and moved to long island which works for me … that and soul cycle is opening up close by (whaaaaz up manhattan!)
who am i foolin’? huntington will never be manhattan but it’s been working out pretty well for mi familia …. now only if i can get my city friends to move out here too …. (fat chance but a girl can dream!)
mostly quiety on the tumblr front (although lets be honest i’m not the best consistency here)
so going backwards …
last friday my son came home from daycare early due to some upchucking and my husband was away at some music fest … i was lucky enough get the stomach virus saturday evening when i gave the baby to my in-laws for the night (the baby was fine by then i thought). they consequently got sick and then my husband fell ill yesterday. it’s been a joy ride …
in the meantime i’ve started a new position at work but toggling between old one and new one so lucky enough to stay at home and have some flexibility (i’m not sure i would be able to hold down a job if i had to go into the office every day w/ the illnesses my wee one has had)
we went to fire island weekend before and the week before that we went to martha’s vineyard - i hired a photographer to take some family pics so hopefully will share one or two good ones (it’s a stretch since my boo refused to stand in the sand on the beach but was all over the place once the photographer left?)
everything is a bit of a hot mess …. and it is what it is ….
hope you all are faring better! i have a bunch of links that are helpful? maybe not but interesting to me … i’ll share later!
tonight is my last night working the brutal 9pm-5am shift b/c i finally found a new opportunity at work (woot woot!)
i still have a month of training during the us time zone but no more with the wacky euro or asian time zones … b/c lets face it, if i’m going to be awake at those times i’d rather it be for a baby and not work …
