What did we do December 12?

Ok, it’s about 3:15pm on 12/16 and I’m still sitting near the gate at JFK wondering if my flight is going to get delayed.

I’m trying to sit down and document what we did on Wednesday, but it’s a big blur.

I do know that we were SUPPOSED to get up early and run around Battery Park early in the morning. However, I stayed up way too late (something like 4 or 5am) and then I kept sleeping until 10:30 or 11ish. Poor EB was awake and working and listening to my snoring. But boy, I needed the sleep.

They didn’t tell us until after we paid for the tickets that they were not letting anyone else into the Statue that day. Nor did they mention that you could do Ellis Island or the Statue, but not both. We chose the Statue. Our bad for getting there that late that day. (You can’t blame me for oversleeping; we were delayed at lunch for like an hour due to credit card issues EB was having. Due to the FIVE pairs of tickets from LA to NY booked in a 48 hour period for the same two people, his credit card company blocked his card. Not that I blame them. Then someone told him that the original card was closed and he had to pick up a new one when he got to NY. Then overnight, he determined the card was still active, but it had a daily maximum on it. He got the maximum lifted but then the “new” card was put into the system, deactivating the old one.)

After Battery Park, it was starting to get dark. We took the Subway into Grand Central Station. From there, we walked toward…
