I am leaving on a jet plane…

It’s LEAVING DAY!!!!  It’s TRAVEL DAY!!!!

CRAZY!!!

I think I’ve mentioned this before in another blog, but it’s funny because Stuart and I are leaving today – Stuart for only two weeks right now – but we’re not flying on the same flight! We leave within 20 minutes of each other from JFK, from different terminals, on different airlines – me on BA and Stuart on Virgin (which is way better!). And we arrive within 20 minutes of each other at Heathrow tomorrow, different terminals.

It worked out cheaper this way as I had to get on a BA flight to be on the same return flight as my mum when I come back to the States, but the cheapest flights were not BA, so Stuart did one of those cheap-not-know-you’re-airline sites and got on Virgin – so that was cool!

So we’ll see each other when we drive to JFK tonight  and then I will see him again when I get picked up tomorrow morning after we arrive! Strange!!

If only we could communicate across the ocean, thousands of miles up in the air!!

If only BBM worked while flying haha!!

I will miss him 🙂

But we get to save money so that’s a bonus!

If I make it to the plane as still haven’t packed and am at the office…..aHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

So this is my last day in America until JANUARY!!!

For just under 6 months!!!

In 2012!!

That’s weird.

Next time I’ll be back in the USA it will be in 2013 with a little schmonkey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BIZARRE!!!!

I didn’t finish until 1am last night with expense work I had to do for a broker I do bookkeeping for every couple of months – I had to schedule a session to catch up before I leave since I will be gone for a while. It took me so long though as I realized I hadn’t been there since February as was so busy, so had a lot to do!!

Annoyingly the air was off in the office too so I was dying!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! For hours and hours 😦

My new shoes hurt so much yesterday and I had planned to do the rest of my walking cardio after my expense work on my way home. Granted, I had no clue I would be there so long and finish so late, and how the shoes would get worse over the day, so I realized in the midst of crunching numbers that I had to have a plan B for the rest of my cardio.

So, being the crazy person I am, I sped-walked around the office barefoot! In the dark hot aisles of the office, in the dark of the night! I was the only one in the office but there were a few across the way in the other office buildings I saw were also working late – hope they didn’t see me on my crazy office laps!

So after my office walk-a-thon I decided to cab it home. It was strange actually how there were no cabs for ages! I was on Park Avenue which usually has a lot.

I was about to give up hope when an off duty taxi stopped for me. I said I was going to Astoria and if he didn’t mind since he was off duty – he said no problem.

He seemed nice.

Then he turned on some beautiful classical music and asked me how the air felt and if it was okay for me.

That was really nice.

I noticed him going slowly over all and any bumps we hit on the way – which no cabbie does!

I am sure the little schmonkey found that nice!

And then, to top it off, he waited for me to go inside the front door before he drove off!

Which was super nice!

I think a little cabbie fairy was watching over me 🙂 And perhaps saw my bump when he picked me up?? Regardless, a nice way to end a long and hot and annoying day!

It’s been one of those BAD NEWS days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1). Got a call that my doctor is now on an emergency leave so out of town until next Thursday, which is after I leave, so will not be able to see him now as scheduled on Monday…

2). My health insurance company called to let me know they will not be covering any test strips and materials for my glucose meter since I have not met my deductible…

3). The other broker called to let me know we may have a snag in our apartment purchase going forward as the board requires us, me and Stuart, to both be present for our board interview, which of course I will not be since I will be unable to fly that late in pregnancy…so working on that to see if that can be worked around now…

JUST LOVELY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So bad things happen in 3’s….so that was 3….so I hope I’m done for the day!!

Guess what??? It’s HOT and HUMID again today!!!!!!!!!!!! Wow, what a surprise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Although yesterday was reeeeeeeaaaaaalllllyyyyy bad!

I had an episode yesterday on the subway again where I thought I was going to pass out – it was horrible! It was just soooo hot on the way to the subway that I must have over-heated or something or been dehydrated….and had no water on me of course! UGH!

What saved me was a small teeny apple I had put in my bag that I forced myself to eat while sitting on the platform recovering, and the juice from that managed to hold me for the rest of my journey.

It’s just not a nice feeling – the feeling that you are about to fall down and you are by yourself so hope you land okay if it happens….of course that freaked me out the most – I was concerned about my phone and wallet and it being stolen if I passed out, and then the idea of falling down while pregnant took over….thank god it didn’t happen!

It just makes me more weary of this heat now.

The heat and humidity that makes you drenched, and then when you see someone and give them a hug, it’s like:

“Hey! Good to see you! Or drench you as am a giant pool of sweat!!!”

Nice!!

Long day.

I had to drive to Cederhurst which is out near Far Rockaway, to read the board minutes for the apartment we are interested in – there was no other way but to drive there as no subway was near the management office annoyingly.

Then had to drive back and park it in the garage in Astoria and walk up to the subway.

Then had to go to the office, despite how brief, to take care of things there for the limited time I could before I had to leave again to go to my glucose specialist doctor appointment.

So then had to get up to St. Lukes hospital for that appointment.

That actually took way longer than anticipated – I had no idea – thought we would be just talking about things but instead I had to learn all about gestational diabetes as my slight rise in one of my glucose tests I did means now I have to do a whole week of testing with a glucose machine and pricking my blood to get readings and monitor myself as protocol.

So have to get the five or so times I do that into the schedule now too!

So I was supposed to run some errands up near Columbus Circle after I was done but was done later so managed to only do one thing off my “things to do before I leave for the UK” to-do list.

Then my phone died!!! Of course!! So was unable to take care of some work things so had to go home in order to charge the phone to respond and do some work.

And now am sweating buckets at home…..sweating me some buckets from the computer on my lap in my warm non-A/C living room while trying to get things done 😦

I am trying to cool the bedroom down right now so I can go lie down!

I might as well be in a bath right now!
