The next three hours were spent on an adventure trying to find a good briefcase. You would think in New York City you could find anything you wanted...not so. It's not that easy, either. Every place I went i'd ask someone where they knew of a store that sold them and each person would give me a place, like a little treasure hunt. After walking over 20 blocks in the heat with pointy shoes I decided to call it a day and somehow managed to drag my butt a few blocks to the PATH station. (the end result? Many blisters and I bought the bag on amazon.com that night)
While I remember this now, when I was getting lunch I asked the woman at the register to give me a copy of the receipt. She said to me "you don't need a receipt." I said EXCUSE ME?!?! and then she fished it out of the machine. Thanks lady for telling me what I do and do not need in my life.
My brother arrived home yesterday, and we were all glad to see him. Now that he's back Kat is ok to go into labor :)
Today will be a quieter day, I'll be working on my excel skills and applying to more jobs. Thus it continues.
