Waking up in NY

In the words of my sister, "Jewel slept herself all the way to New York." Admittedly, I did. I fell asleep less than ten minutes from our home, and I woke up four hours later for lunch in Ohio. I slept through Pennsylvania, and the cities of Lima, Macedonia, Chile, Athens, and others. I have the gift of sleep, and what a treasure it is!

Mom estimates that I slept 18 hours between the evening, morning, and afternoon. I didn't calculate the hours, but I do know that it equaled a difficult time falling asleep last night. Fortunately, our hotel room was equipped with a widescreen television and the TLC network. I am a Cake Boss junkie! I also watched Josie Dugger's 1st birthday party - Josie is the youngest child on 19 Kids and Counting. I don't have [or watch] TV while I'm at school and I don't miss it when I don't have, but I definitely enjoyed it last night!

We actually didn't make it all the way to NYC. Jessie is going to start grad. school in July at Robert's Wesleyan College in Rochester, NY. She hadn't visited before, so we went to check out the campus and talk to admissions and professors and look for housing, etc.

I also have friends 3 minutes from the RWC campus that we were able to visit while in town. Our first time to NY! (Except driving through to Niagra Falls.)
