Planning

Kidney stone update: to make this short, I am feeling better. I have had several imaging tests done and am waiting to hear the results from the latest. I am hoping that there aren't anymore stones sitting in my kidneys waiting to make me miserable or any other obstructions, that the doctor is checking for. Your well wishes made me smile! Thank you, thank you! And a special thank you for the emails, too. I still feel a bit sluggish, and haven't had any energy to tackle any projects. I have been checking in on your blogs, but I will try to get about and make some comments soon!

My mom has wanted to take a trip to NYC for sometime now. She has always said that she would go when she retired. Recently 2 of my friends passed away shortly before their retirement began. I told mom we should go now. We can't always put everything off for the future. We decided to invite a friend and her daughter to join us. I have become the official planner! LOL. . .hopefully we get there okay! We are going to catch a show, take a guided tour, visit the Statue of Liberty, and much more. Do you have any suggestions?

Oh you poor kid re: the kidney stone thing !! Glad to hear you're feeling a little better (my hubby went through that a couple of months ago .... at midnight I was driving like a lunatic to get him to the ER because he was in terrible pain .... all is well now.)

Anyhow .... good for you for planning to go to NYC!! My sister, sister-in-law , best friend and their daughters all took me last November for my birthday weekend .... we had a BLAST !!! We stayed at the Crown Plaza Hotel right in the theater district ... which would be my suggestion .... then you're in easy walking distance to some of the theaters (Mama Mia was the one we saw ..... PERFECT Mother/daughter/girlfriends show!)

OH .... and you HAVE to go to the restaurant where all the waiters and waitresses sing !! (shoot , I can't think of the name of it ....I'll go look on my blog .... I'll be right back)

OK....I'm back .....the name of that restaurant is "Ellen's Stardust Diner" .... TONS of FUN! AND you HAVE to go to "Magnolia Bakery" for CUPCAKES (as seen on "Sex and the City") ...and the hotel we stayed at was the Crowne Plaza Times Square .... (if you want to see pictures, etc it's all on my blog from last November ). HAVE A GREAT TIME!

Glad you hear you are feeling better and well enough to take a trip to NYC! I myself have lived close to NYC all my life and just don't like all the hustle and bustle of the city. I can't really offer any suggestions. But I am sure that anything that you do you will have a blast at doing!

Sorry to hear about the kidney stone problem! I was just reading that orange juice, not vitamin c, but the actual juice is supposed to have something in it that helps break the stones down. Good luck!

Glad you're feeling better -- hope there are no more stones in there lurking!

NYC is SOOOO fun! There's way too much to do. What are you interested in? Does your mom want to go to fabric/needle places? Definitely Magnolia cupcakes -- lots of people think they're overrated, but I love them. If you like museums, I went to The Cloisters last month and LOVED it. Prepare to do lots of walking!

Your trip to NY will be so much fun, hopefully those Kidney stones will pass soon so you can continue to plan and get going on your fun vacation to The Big Apple.
