"we can't find your blood pressure...on either arm..."

it's been an interesting week.
 
on monday twin and i took the train up to harlem to make dinner at her boyfriend's place while he studied like the little studious ivy boy he is. we made chicken piccata and watched modern family. i mostly just went for the couch time.... i love you ben ;)
 
on tuesday twin's boyfriend surprised her and waited outside her work to hug her when she got out, and follow her home. this put a ripple in our grocery shopping plans (thanks ben), so the three of us tried out a bbq restaurant in union square i've been itching to visit, live bait. i had a glass of pinot which led to the three of us singing 'total eclipse of the heart' on our walk to the subway.
 
on wednesday i fainted in the subway. and ended up in the ER. like i said... it's been an interesting week.
 
on thursday i was too scared to take the subway again, so i stayed home from work.
 
on friday i was still too scared to take the subway, but i knew i had to go to work. so i did. with a lot of twin's encouragement, and back pats.
 
and this weekend i'm going home to massachusetts to take a huge deep breath and leaf peep.
 
happy weekend, y'all.
 
 
{twin, i can't thank you enough for being here for me this week. i know i haven't stopped saying it, but you saved me down in that subway. if it wasn't for you, i don't know what would have happened. i really don't. you're my backbone, my heart, my saving grace. you cried whenever i did that day, and spoke for me when i was too overwhelmed or sick to do so. you sat next to me in that restaurant booth when we finally got out of the hospital, and you held my hand when i was terrified to get back on the subway home. forever. thank you.}
