The Matron and Her Xanax

Tuesday, the Matron tested half a xanax in order to determine it's impact on her nervous system.

She felt nothing.

Not one blip, not a bling, not a soothing moment.

So today, she plans to pop an entire pill, maybe two, as she flies with Stryker to New York City.

If she were telling you the truth, she'd say that she's visiting her brother and his family, who live in New Jersey. She is. She's very much looking forward to seeing them, especially her adorable nephews.

But that Matron? She is going to NYC, as much as possible! This is the type of place she loves. Put her on a hilltop or ask her to take a stroll?

Ugh. The Matron is not actually fond of 'nature.' (yes, she likes her clean air and environment but let hers be urban)

She will stroll, shop and dine with her firstborn, the smart kid with the wicked wit.

And! She is bringing her camera and laptop. There will be blogging. See you in the city. . . .

Good luck with the pill popping - hope you have an uneventful flight.
I'm flying in two weeks - so I will listen to reports of it taking the edge off the fear!

Make sure to enjoy the food. Get some real Italian pizza, and don't forget to stop by Zabar's for bagels. The Carnegie Deli, too...

I'm doing the same thing with my youngest in June. Cannot wait.

That's sort of the way Xanax is supposed to work--you don't really feel anything, you just don't get all worked up. Have fun!

Have a wonderful trip - I'm so completely jealous of you getting out of here for awhile.

How great that you get to spend some one-on-one with Stryker.

Can't wait to hear all about it.
