traveling

So I figure I can talk about the traveling part of the trip now.  I have never traveled so far in such a short amount of time.  This trip was literally for the event only.  Here dad and I are on our way and we (or at least me), are wired with adrenaline.  You couldn't get me to sleep no matter how hard you tried.  I was seriously worried about the bags that get under my eyes after no sleep, but that didn't phase my body to just stay extremely nervous and alert until the taping of the show was over.  
What a nice lady we sat with on the airplane, Sandy.  She took our picture here in the plane and also took the oath with us that "yes" we will assist in the exiting off the plane if such an emergency were to occur.



So when we got off the plane we hopped into a black sedan waiting for us at the airport to take us to the hotel.  What traffic there is in New York City!  Sheesh, little town girl from Lodi cannot relate.  What a comfortable car though, we asked the driver a lot about himself and looked at all the sights we could see. 
 And what are the chances I will ever be in front of a subway entrance ever again?  You never know so we took a picture.  That was right after we got to the hotel put our stuff in the room and headed out to find something to eat.  I was so tired and actually fell asleep for a few hours that night, but woke up at 3am with the nervous anxiety all over again.  I did keep thinking though, I know that Nate Berkus is not nervous right now and HE IS THE SHOW!  Why am I so nervous.  But you couldn't tell that to my nervous nerves! 

 
What a relief when the taping was all over.  I can't wait to tell you all about it!
