Since I didn’t have much more time off from work, Frank and I had to leave the Pearson in Norfolk while it underwent some repairs. We rented a car and drove to NY to see family and friends and to take care of some business. Upon entering Brooklyn and seeing the NY skyline, I was so overjoyed to be home again that I actually teared up. I had forgotten how much I had missed this place and it was so nice to see something so familiar. Frank has been making fun of me for crying since, but I think he was secretly as happy as I was. My parents welcomed us home with a huge Chinese dinner of lobster, crab, snails, jackknife clams, roast pork, and Chinese wegetabals…. It was otherworldly, and just what we needed after a week of traveling.
