It's already October!

It's hard to believe we have been living here for 8 months already. We're still not completely adjusted to life in NYC, but we're getting there. Some days present challenges, other days we're "in the groove."

Friday, we are going up to our soon-to-be new apartment to look at some of the superintendent/contractor's kitchen work in other apartments. Then he'll take at look at ours and, with any luck, will help us come up with a good plan for the remodel. We're also going to ask him about enlarging the one-and-only closet in the apartment. It's a decent size, but it could definitely use a boost.

We're hoping to close escrow within the next couple of weeks, if all goes as planned. Yippee!

Rachel is having an excellent semester at NYU. She's doing extraordinarily well in her classes, she's working as a math tutor at an elementary school, and she's volunteering with a group called Earth Matters. Busy gal, but very happy. Sophomore year is proving to be better than freshman year. :-)

Friends will be in town this weekend--Linda from California, and her daughter Kathryn, who attends Wellesley. The weekend of Oct. 14, Mary's sister and brother-in-law arrive for a one week's stay with us, and we're looking forward to seeing them.

October is proving to be a good month!
