life in and around NYC is insane

Another this and that

So Becca moved into her apartment.  The move was less that stress-free, and involved a dispute with the new landlord as well as a near-disaster with a furniture delivery, but everything got resolved; she's in the apartment and basically unpacked, and about  start enjoying life in NYC.

I have to get used to seeing Jen in a different set of school colors.  When she worked in the school that she had attended as a student, she wore the same colors she'd worn years ago.  Now she works in a neighboring school district (the district where Drew was a student), and on Fridays the staff wear shirts in the school colors.  It's a little disconcerting

My father is being released from the hospital, and we're all looking forward to having him home again.  There have been some permanent changes in his medical condition, though, which means changing the routine at home.  It is what it is.

There is a truism that every woman turns into her mother eventually.  My mother is living proof that yes, it can happen.  Lately she is reminding me more and more of my grandmother.

So Drew and I were in a restaurant Saturday night, and when we finished eating we had to walk through the bar to leave.  One of the TV's was tuned to the Mets game, and it was the bottom of the 9th inning.  So we stayed, and saw the Mets clinch the division.  They are now headed to the post season. 

I expect the Yankees to clinch a wild card berth, so both NY teams will see post season play. 

Alas, in last week's playoff series, my poor Long Island Ducks fell to the Somerset Patriots.  The Patriots will battle the Maryland Blue Crabs for the league championship this week.   Pity.  Drew had tickets for the two championship games that would have been played in Central Islip if the Ducks had beaten the Patriots.  Maybe next year.
