New York City

We had a fairytale week….saw five shows (Steve saw an additional one, a matinee of King Kong) and loved each one, all different.  We arrived Monday and decided to add a show that night at last minute, the theatre was immediately across the street from our hotel Crown Plaza Times Square. So it was Chicago, Hamilton, My Fair Lady, Frozen and Once on This Island….all different, and enjoyable.  Highlight was probably Hamilton….thankfully, since it was $1600 for two tix!  Ate at good restaurants and generally took it easy, since we have seen all of the typical tourist things already.  We did repeat a trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  And added an afternoon at the New York Historical Society.  Thursday New York had the biggest snowstorm in 123 years!  over 6 inches of snow….  We walked to the theatre (Frozen that night - how ironic!) with umbrella’s so didn’t have any challenges.  We flew home on Saturday afternoon.  As much as I have come to love the Big Apple, I am happy to return home to quiet Sherwood Forest!  Now it’s time to think turkey….  and then Christmas!  Not yet sure when I will host CC, but I think it will be the second week of December!

Sounds like NY was really hopping and you two totally set the pace. House plans are creeping along. The sellers agreed to fix almost everything on the list, so after closing on Feb 6th, we get to rip down wallpaper galore, take out cabinets in the kitchen to make room for kitchen dining and start painting walls. Have not come anywhere close to deciding what new flooring to put in and have only slowly whittled away at downsizing. It is so nice that Calvin wants to spend extra time with his grandma.
