Today I woke up and spent as much of the morning before I left soaking up my time as an uncle. The nieces and nephews spent all morning begging me to stay… “it’s not fair that you have to go back” they said. I agree, but I am actually quite refreshed to be back in the city. I felt like I was almost getting tired of NYC for a little while there. This weekend with the family really allowed me to catch my breath. Plus it is always nice to get some great food (no one goes hungry when my mom is the host). After I got back I just got a nice head start on the week’s homework because I know it will be a hectic week at work–being Ellen’s first day back open after the Retazo trip.
