Our vacation really started in Salt Lake City last Friday when I was not allowed to board the plane because my driver's license had expired. Do they accept other kinds of picture ID? No, because they are sticklers. Don't you just love sticklers! Who here wants to be a stickler in every way? ME! Because sticklers are the glue of society, at least, I think that's what they think. Bless their little type A hearts.
They were helpful enough to tell us about the DMV in Salt Lake City. The DMV? Super! It's so fun to start our romantic 14 year anniversary trip waiting in line at the DMV. Truth be told, it was fun. Every thing's fun without your kids! After renewing my license we went to the Gateway to kill 4 hours before the next flight left for New York. We saw The Invasion. Now, may I say that I was completely freaked out by the first Invasion of the Body Snatchers. The second one was pretty freaky too. I like pod-people and I am confident that I could pass for one.
Here's what I found most intriguing about the movie: Nicole Kidman wears a body shaper in it. (You see it when she changes her clothes.) That's right--a girdle. If she needs a girdle I should be wearing some kind of full metal jacket. Why would she do that? It's obviously making some kind of statement. I just don't know what kind of statement. I like it though.
New York was fantastic. I love it and this is really saying something because I don't typically love places. I am, in particular, in love with cathedrals:We also loved the quaint, authentic food. Here's a cool dive we discovered:
After our trip I can honestly say, "Now I've seen everything!"That's not a photo shop trick, by the way. They have really big bottles of Hershey's Syrup there. It's crazy.
Being away for the weekend really made me miss my home and children. I was very happy to see them and return to our usual routine. Returning to my usual routine also made me realize that I live like a slave. But that's ok.
