Rick's Big Day

Rick had two interviews in Manhattan today and both ended on positive notes so we feel encouraged and thankful! Last night, I stayed up into the wee hours of the morning worrying about what might go wrong but I should never fear since my husband is always cool, calm and ready to go in stressful situations! I did find solace though last night in the best dark chocolate covered almonds I have ever tasted!
We took the subway into Greenwich Village this morning for Rick’s first interview. I was determined to buy a map and find my way to a museum in the area without any help. With a pop up map in hand (far cheaper than a regular map!;) I really did try with all my might to find the New Museum of Contemporary Art but found myself caught amidst the lures of retail therapy instead!
Though it has been has been sunny and warm all week, it started raining today. It was helpful for us to see how suddenly the weather can change in New York.

Tomorrow we are going to be shown around some apartments in the Fort Greene area by a realtor. I’m eager to see what we will find in our price range!

    Glad to hear the interview went well. One more thing to consider (because all things HAVE to be considered before moving) is how to get around the city with an infant. No carseats, strollers are very difficult when using the subway, no elevators in apartment buildings, very crowded streets, lots and lots of traffic. I know that people manage, but Micah will be in a stroller for a long time yet. Perhaps find some parents and ask them what it’s like. It is a very important aspect of living there. You can’t just hop into a cab with an infant without installing a carseat (which takes time)first. You have to ensure that you can all get around safely. It’s easy when it’s just the two of you romping around. Just something to consider amongst all the other things. I’m sure that if you approach a parent with young children they’d be more than happy to give you some advice.

    Oh this is so exciting! I’m slowly catching up on my blog-friends now that my thesis is just about revised (whew!) Your potential move to NY is thrilling. I’ll keep you in my prayers as you manuever your way through these major decisions. (If you move to NY, we’d be one step closer to meeting up for coffee one day…)
