Make me Love NY


My interview in New York is less than 1 week away. I finally received the venue information for the ADEC interview.  It will be at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square.  It is an expensive hotel but my room is booked for 2 nights, Monday and Tuesday.  Since the interview is Tuesday 2/2 and there is no set time, except for between 9-4:00, I want to make sure I am right there.  I’ve never stayed at the Marquis so I am treating myself.  My sister’s birthday is Feb 3, the day after my interview, so I have invited her up to stay a night or two so we can take on New York.  She will stay Tuesday-Thursday. See, I hate New York.  I am sorry if I offend anyone but I just do.  My niece who used to attend college at PACE is coming with my sister.  They are going to try to change me into a lover of New York.  I am open to try but I doubt it.  New York does have a lot to see and enjoy but it’s just not my cup of tea.

On Wednesday, I will check out of the Marquis and into the Doubletree down the street, for my Kuwait interview.  I will stay there Wednesday and Thursday.  My interview will be sometime between 9-1:00, on Friday 2/5  My husband will come up on Thursday after my sister and niece leave, so we can spend sometime together and we will check out on Friday and head home.

Saturday morning, my two sisters and I will start our road trip to Atlanta and head back home on Tuesday. My Qatar interview will be on Monday 2/8.

A teacher from New York will be interviewing in New York for ADEC and in Atlanta for Qatar on the same days as I.  She also has a blog.  Somehow our blogs met each other and we follow each other and the rest is history. Here is the link to her blog Two different people who’ve never met, on the same journey at the same time.  How funny is that? Hopefully she and I can meet up in New York and then again in the Middle East.

  1. I’m excited and sad because, I do believe my sister will rock her interview. It took forever for my lil sis and I to click as I always considered her to be the adorable brat of the family and couldn’t wait to get old enough to leave home, but over the years we’ve established that she is still a spoiled brat but with the kindest heart ever and I will miss her terribly if she goes. Just thinking about it now makes me cry. I can’t imagine ever being without her around, no more monthly wine and cheese dates, nowhere to run when I’m so upset/hurt to have a drink and vent. Who would have guessed that the brat I couldn’t wait to get away from would hurt me so much to see leave… I will try not to spend my bday being sad in my favorite city with my ride or die chicks (my sister and my youngest daughter). On a happier note, after my daughter and I get finished with my sister she will love new York! Much success to both of you brilliant, ambitious teachers:0)
