and float down grand street in daylight

I know that Grand Street is in Brooklyn, and I don't know if I'll be going over to Brooklyn this weekend, but I really like the Matt & Kim song "Daylight". In fact, I really like their whole album "Grand". It's super fun and New York City-ish.

Which is appropriate because I'll be in NYC in less than 24 hours for my second annual long weekend in NYC, which happily corresponds with my birthday! :)

This has been a fun and busy week so far. I survived Boot Camp at school. It was really fun doing power yoga with students. They are less co-ordinated than I am, so I didn't feel so self-conscious.

On Wednesday, I went to a very exciting Raptors' game with my work spouse, whose last day of work before her maternity leave is tomorrow. I'm going to miss her, but I know I'll be visiting her lots to catch her up on gossip and such. Not that I'm a gossip...

Tonight I've been tidying my apartment and getting all ready for NYC. One of my friends from home is joining me and two work pals on our fabulous trip, so she's crashing here tonight. I hope Rilo's not bothering her.

My bags are pretty much packed. I hate packing. Determining what clothing I will need is so tough. While packing, I asked myself if I *really* need three pairs of jeans for what is essentially a three day trip, and the answer is yes, of course I do.

Now all I have to do is to get through tomorrow. It's a PD day, and I'm sure what they have planned is all sorts of boring, and they're not even serving us lunch! I guess that's the economy for you.

I'll leave you with an awesome picture of Rilo yawning (taken by Becca T), which is what I'll be doing lots of tomorrow during the PD, and until I land in NYC.
