Sunday we went to Brooklyn to see Miss Emma and the progress on Jess and Tommy's renovation.The afternoon included a horrible trip to an even worse Home Depot in Red Hook, where we didn't find the advertised product. Afterwards, we headed to the famous Red Hook Lobster Pound for lobster rolls. The eatery has finally reopened after it was destroyed in Hurricane Sandy. The Red Hook section of Brooklyn was under water for quite a while but is pretty much back to normal now. Afterwards, headed to Baked, where Miss Emma enjoyed a cupcake -- or at least, the frosting.
This week has been taken up with doctors' appointments, attorney meetings, real estate people interviews, and more sorting/cleaning/clearing out. Today we hit pay dirt in my mother's storage unit in the building: an almost full carton of paper towels that she had brought from her house when she moved to the apartment in 1992, stored and forgotten. My back seat runneth over.
Tomorrow, bank stuff and more sorting. Saturday, the kids come and tag what they want and next week, more meetings and appointments. I have been sleeping well.
