Took the girls to work with me, and they were fabulous. I blasted on the work, since I'm out of the office for the next three weeks, and they amused themselves, and E was even helpful. Then they went out shopping and bought E sparkly pink jelly flip-flops and brought back sushi for lunch. I had to go to an event in Trendy Neighborhood. I was meeting some people at a hip cafe beforehand, and we didn't have a lot of time, so we took a cab. The cafe was hip in the greatest of ways--nice-looking and good food--and the girls sat at their own table with snacks and again behaved impeccably. More impeccable behavior during the event, which was work-related and very excellent and validating. Then it was pouring so we took a cab to meet S and go to our friend's new restaurant. I don't think we've taken that many cabs in East Coast Big City ever, so we kind of felt like we were in New York. The restaurant is good, but not as good as our restaurant, but it was fun to see all our friends who work there.
I must admit that I enjoy the rare days when my life feels like it's glamorous.
