We made it through Sandy completely unscathed, and my thoughts are with everyone who is without power. Those of you with kids, well I can't even imagine what you must be going through. Yesterday, when the entire city shut down, my kids started climbing the walls, and I have never been more thankful for an open Barnes and Noble, in my life. Luckily, the store shut down at noon, allowing all of those wonderful employees the chance to get home, before the worst of the storm hit. I'd never thought I'd say it, but this was a glimpse of corporate america at it's best. Most of our weekend was spent trying to stay busy, in a town that was quickly closing shop. Now that I have both kids in the morning, and no naps to worry about, I renewed all those old memberships and this weekend the kids and I hit the aquarium, the children's museum, and the museum of science. Yesterday, we were one of the last to leave the T before its closing, and as we arrived home Gray got out to walk, and, I kid you not, he began to get pushed down the sidewalk. Needless to say, we spent the rest of the day inside. Here is a little glimpse into the week that was.
I wish you all a safe and speedy recovery in your community, and a special thanks to all those first responders, most of whom are still out there, trying to undo the massive damage Sandy created. You guys are such heroes!
