Jeff already said that he didn't think we both could go so I started looking into costs for myself and also to go with my sister, Missy. Well, who knew hotel costs were so crazy in New York ($500 and up!)? I guess there is a UN Assembly the same day as the show taping so hotel rooms are scarce. Poor Missy was looking into hotels in Brooklyn and New Jersey.
I guess a decision has been made not to go. I have until Wednesday to decide for sure.
This really smarts.
I know there are more important things in the world but I really love the Martha Stewart products - I receive almost all of the magazines (please bring Kids back!), tape the show and even burn some to DVD. I have years of issues cataloged by month so I can look at all the October ones together, for instance. I didn't even give up on her when she went to prison. As I love to sew, this show would have been a real dream to go to.
As mentioned, there are so many other things in the world to focus on. This comes with the territory of being a stay-at-home mom. I've been telling myself every night how lucky we are to live in the US and be safe and sound in our lives. But then the tears come as I have a pity party for myself. We really have had a rough 4 years and it would do Jeff and I wonders to get away for a couple days.
Well, hopefully writing about this will get it off my mind and focus on better things such as Jeff's birthday which officially started an hour ago. Aidan, in all his 4-year-old logic, decided that his daddy loves to play with him so he (Aidan) should get a few toys so Daddy can play with them with him!
