I'll think about that tomorrow. I've been so swamped at work that among other monumental happenings this year, I haven't had time to process the significance of this particular anniversary. I've lived in New York twice as long as I lived in Atlanta... and it felt like I lived there for about 100 years. I wish I had both time and clarity of mind right now to share something profound about my time in NYC... but I have neither. I'm supposed to be packing for my church retreat to the Poconos tomorrow, so I'd better get back to it.
Never fear, readers! I am not leaving you completely without content. I did put together this little list of goodies I've accumulated since I got here. You might be surprised by some of the items...
1 puffy coat (Thanks for the tip, JMart & LJ)
1 Apple computer (Which I decided to purchase on the spot because Pat Sajak was in the Apple store)
