By the Numbers

Going to bed on Sunday, I expected a slow four days of waiting to go to Colorado for the weekend. The days that actually stood between me and Colorado actually contained quite a bit:

  • 40 hours of work
  • 2 sick kids
  • 4 chapters of Narnia read out loud
  • 3 train tracks built
  • 1 new apartment!
  • 3 loads of laundry
  • 5 episodes of Gilmore Girls
  • 3 time outs for hitting given
  • 17 subway rides
  • 3 hours wandering Central Park
  • 2 hours getting to and from the Hudson River to watch the Space Shuttle being brought to the museum
  • 1394 (estimated) text messages about babysitting schedules and apartment stuff
  • 2 bus rides
  • 100 pages of Mere Christianity
  • 3 puzzles
  • 12 (at least) bumps and bruises kissed
  • 1 good-bye to a friend for the summer
  • 6 games of hide and seek
  • 50 or so times I found myself singing this song. Listen to it:

And now, just a 4 hour plane ride! It will be wonderful to get away from it all for a bit.
