I’m going to be upfront and honest. I don’t have a picture of what I wore to Mass. It was a long day that started too early and is ending too late. BUT, the good news is, I did capture ‘the essence’ of my outfit.
My hair really did look like that leaving for Mass because we needed to attend the early service and I was so utterly and completely overdue for a shower I was forced to arrive with wet tresses. Thankfully, veiling covers a multitude of sins.
From Mass, we came home, ate an early lunch than slogged through three hours of traffic up to Long Island with everybody to see a used handicap van. (When is there not a ton of traffic around NYC???) It was a really nice vehicle, can comfortably hold our whole family and the price is what we can afford. We’re seriously considering it so long as I don’t need to do that drive EVER AGAIN. By the time we got home I was more like:
I mean, it was great for the ten minutes I could point out highlights along Manhattan skyline but seriously, the stop and go, NY drivers, screaming kids who were either dying of thirst or about to pee their pants; it’s no wonder I have a headache. Since we were close by, we did swing by Theodore Roosevelt’s house at Oyster Bay which is a national historic site. Although the house is under renovation, it gave us a chance to stretch our legs, run around and buy more books about our favorite president and Teddy’s namesake. (Yes, my child is named after a president. After four pregnancies, Tony finally wore me down on the name.)
We arrived home just in time for more drinking and peeing and, praise the Lord, bed time. Tomorrow, we’re all driving to the beach, cause what better way to recover from a road trip than …another road trip. Can’t wait!
Between trips to the pool and the grill, be sure to swing back to FLAP and enjoy the rest of the WIWS links.
