Stranded.

My dad and I have been stuck in New York City for over 24 hours. There is just a “little bit of snow.”

The good news? I had the best $14 mocha of my life and I don’t like coffee.

It’s the little things.

    Sorry to hear you’re stuck! I have friends supposed to fly from Boston to Hawaii today. yeah, so not happening. But I think it would be bearable with a drink like that

    Wow that is a bit steep, even for the BEST mocha. Sounds like you’re getting to spend lots of quality time with Dad How Sweet!

    We had so much snow here in Colorado…my husband felt like putting GPS devices on both of us every time we took the trash out or went to mailbox in case we didn’t make it back to house and the snow plows needed to come find us.

    I would hate being stuck somewhere. Kind of like I hate being stuck here in the hospital right now. Ready to go home! It gets boring here when baby B sleeps and sleeps.

    And for the record – I would also hate to pay $14 for a mocha.

    Kinda sucks that your stuck there!

    At the same time, it makes me feel less guilty for not going to school there yesterday. I don’t think I would have made it back to jersey!

    And $14?!

    It better have been good!!

    I am a coffee freak, I would gladly pay $14 for a mocha…however, I don’t buy Oreos unless they are on sale. Priorities?
    Safe travels.

    That looks so yummy! You can stop by CT if you want…although I am no fun these days as all I can do is sit and huff and puff that I’ve so over this pregnancy. But any other time – I swear I’m a ton of fun!
