Day 38: The Farewell
Photo of the Day: Scraping the Storm Clouds
My mom and sister left New York today. On an awful note I might add. It was rainy all day today, which made their wanderings of Fifth Avenue downright unpleasant and miserable (though at least they were impressed by the sparkling public restrooms at Trump Tower). On top of that, their plane was delayed for two hours because of the crappy weather, and now they're forced to spend the night in Atlanta because they missed their connecting flight.
Before they departed, I joined them for a long lunch at Joe's Shanghai (yes, again) and grabbed cookies from Momofuku (yes, again). Afterward, I walked them to the subway station, where my mom gave me a tearful farewell. Goodbyes are always so difficult. Seeing my mom and sister this weekend made me miss my family, and I wish their trip in New York had been more enjoyable and not so hectic. We got to see so many sights in the city, but in the end, I think all they really wanted was to see me, which means a lot. Ah, well, there's always Thanksgiving and Christmas around the corner!
