START SPREADING THE NEWS, I'M LEAVING TODAY!
I lived in New York City from 1986 to 1991. During those years, New York was a very different place. When I arrived in New York in 1986 and walked out of Port Authority, I was in the middle of the sleeziest, drug-infested, hooker-ridden place I had ever seen. And then Disney came in. It's changed drastically over the years. I've been back a handful of times since and am so excited to rekindle my love affair with that city. So that is why for the next six days, I will be blogging about my adventures in New York.
All week I've been trying to get stuff done, so I wouldn't feel overwhelmed. My biggest worry is of course my pets Chester and Trooper. I hired a lovely woman named Rachel from the Pet Staff to come in twice a day to walk, feed and play with them. Hopefully twice will be enough, but if not I can increase the visits. I think it's amazing how my animals know that I am leaving. Chester has been extra lovey dovey this past several days. He hates it when I leave but I'm not so worried about him.
Trooper is the one I'm anxious to leave. I know she'll be fine though. A nameless friend put the fear of God into me about leaving her alone at night. This friend has an uber-codependent relationship with his dog and practically breast feeds it. So I had to come down from the ledge.
LEAVING ON A JET PLANE
So before I leave I am going to clean. I hate coming home to a dirty house. Plus, if the pet-sitter decides to snoop, I don't want her finding any porn. This could affect how she treats my babies. Unless she likes porn.
Rachel has been briefed about Trooper's crazy leash behavior. So hopefully she won't encounter the Tasmanian Devil from the previous blog entry.
I'm taking a Jet-Blue, red-eye tonight and will arrive at JFK in the morning at 5:30 am. I'll arrive at my friend George's place at around 7:30ish. So my next entry will be from 46th and 9th.
