A chronicle since 2005 of my marriage & move to Brooklyn in my twenties; becoming a mother in my thirties; moving to Pennsylvania and learning to amicably coparent after divorce in my forties while living 3 doors down from my ex-husband in a small country town.

Accidental Tourist

My feet are black. I've just finished exploring the whole of Manhattan in flip-flops. From Times Square to Lincoln Center.. Central Park via Lennon's Strawberry Fields over to da East Side for just a quick peek in Bloomingdales, for I could not love myself any longer if I spent more than 50 bucks on a purse ($2,000 dollars for a handbag, good god!) Down for a bit of prayer at St. Patricks Cathedral (actually got reprimanded by my mom for dropping the F bomb inside hallowed doors.. oops!) down to Empire State and up to the top. Now I sit, looking across the East River at the very building I was atop not an hour ago.. Worn out but pleased I squished so much into one day for my mom and bro.. Now we're off to drink our aching bones away at the Brooklyn Ale house. Will post pics and type more soon!

Do you know that I've been waiting for you to post? I got to work and checked. Nothing. Finally, you threw me a bone tonight. In addition to SK's Greek Tragedy, I am addicted to your blog

Awww.. that's very sweet. I love Greek Tragedy. I should post a link to it here. Can you believe she got a half million dollar book deal from a blog? That is the coolest. I heard NBC has optioned the rights to her blog for a sitcom. Unbelievable! How exciting

The book deal is amazing, as is her writing. And yours.

That was fast! That's so nice of you to say. There are a few blog haters out there. Yet, they still seem to log on and read. Whatever. As long as the people I know and write about get a kick out of it, I'm happy. A blog is what it is. Some are public diaries, others are self expression - a way to get folks to read what you write, and still others are a way to keep in touch with old friends, make new ones, and maybe pull a laugh or evoke a shared emotion now and again. Sharing stories from our lives. Finding out you aren't alone.. So thanks for the kudos!

Dearest, when you're in Manhattan next, we're hitting Serendipity for frozen hot chocolate. I need some. NEED, damnit.

Umm.. Holy Shite! Am uncharacteristically speechless. Must go giggle to myself.. Oy!

I've done the NYC in a day in flip flops. Disgusting feet.

Oh and I agree with SK..Frozen Hot Chocolates are a must have. They're amazing. No joke.
