Over breakfast, Mom told us that she was driving us to BK and then into Manhattan for back-to-school shopping.
Becs almost did back flips. :) She hugged Mom and texted all of her friends.
I'd been missing Brooklyn even though I hadn't left friends behind. I did miss the park and running trails. It was the strangest thing...in the middle of a giant city there was a park with ponds and geese and ducks. Squirrels ran everywhere and in the early morning fog, I sometimes had seen deer.
Mom drove us to Kiersten's house (Becca's BFF) and dropped her off. Mom and I left the car at Kiersten's and took the F train into the city. Mom wanted Becs to have time with her friends, so she decided we'd shop for my clothes first, have lunch and then come back for Becca.
I hit all of my fave stores, picking up a few pieces of clothing in each, until we got to my ultimate fave: Macy's. Mom and I hit Starbuck, grabbing iced teas, and I used the old wooden escalator to go up and down each floor. Finally, I was exhausted and couldn't carry all of the clothes in my arms. Mom and I found a bench and weeded through the pile sorting the clothes into "must haves" and "impulse grabs."
We got lunch from C-4--one of my fave restaurants in Rock Center.
We took a taxi back to Kiersten's, picked up Becca and went back into the city. By the end of the trip, I was soooo tired. I fell asleep on the way home listening to Becca chatter about all of the news her friends had to share.
