Good for her!

Well, Ingo, I've got a really interesting true story to tell you about me and my 5.

On Tuesday, I was on the phone with him for a while. Turns out he was already in Florida. He was ready to buy my return ticket to Florida. But he told me he was mentally exhausted, warned me that on the Florida trip, he might not be in his best mood.

Well, we talked about our options. I didn't want to be with him while he's in a bad mood. We decided that he'd come back to Canada approximately today, and he'd be happy to drive us to New York City next week.

Well, I've never been to NYC, but I love big cities! The only one I know well is Toronto. NYC would be heavenly! But, I have to disappoint my siblings!

My 5 might be back in Canada already. He's got to get some rest. We'll see each other soon, and next week, we're going to New York City! (He's American, BTW.)

He says he feels bad about our original plans not working out. He gave me the option of going to Florida. But he was exhausted, and I didn't want to be a negative influence on his mental health.

Now, we'll see each other really soon, and we'll spend some time in all of NYC's boroughs, but especially in Manhattan.

What do you think about this?

-Josie the 7
