We had the first fabulously perfect Sunday of the season in the NY/NJ area yesterday.
Picture it: Sunny, Mild, Birds Chirping, Snow Melting… All this after weeks of cold weather and two major snow storms… You can imagine how precious it was to have a day like yesterday!
You ask: So how did you spend this glorious day?
Well, I started it with a nice cup of coffee served by my super nice husband, followed by an egg salad sandwich, made just the way I like it. Then my sister, parto, picked me up and we had a leisurely drive to Brooklyn where we met up with our super cute brother, Reza.
You Say: How nice! A family get-to-gether on a beautiful day, wondering about the city and possibly having a nice lunch at a favorite cafe.
Nexxxt! Dreamy but not true. We spent the entire day (and I mean the entire day) cleaning, painting and fixing our “family apartment”.
Here’s the proof:
By the time we were done (9 pm), the sun was no longer shining. After a day full of “siblings’ jokes and nagging” paired with intense and not-really-liking-it work; we loaded the car and dragged our hunched over, tired and pained bodies back home.
So, this is the story of my not-so-fabulous Sunday.
p.s. We did squeeze in some fun and laughter. There is a bit of exaggeration in describing the intensity of work performed- but it is my story and am sticking to it!
