IT WAS A FUNNY WEEKEND.

On Friday, I returned home and found a lovely package from my mother outside my door. Inside, I found name-brand toilet paper (yes, things are so expensive in New York, I started buying cheapo toilet paper), funny CDs left at her office (including a Regis CD and a Mary-Kate and Ashley CD), candy treats, and a blue willow dish. What could be better?

On Sunday, Jenny and I met at Central Park early (seriously, my eyes haven’t seen the 8a hour in a long time) to cheer on Kate as she ran a half-marathon. We failed to spot each other–Kate was probably distracted by the high five station and the less-than-exuberant high fiver–but reunited at the finish line. I’m so proud of her!
