Me with my 5 suitcases the day I arrived in NYC

I rarely pack my own suitcases. This was actually brought to my attention in a letter from sister (oh how I miss her...). I had told her that my friends helped me pack everything to take to New York and this was her response:

"I laughed when you said that your friends helped you pack. Someday you will have to learn how to do that yourself."

It's not that I don't know how. I am perfectly capable of packing my own suitcases. I just don't really like to. Thank goodness for wonderful friends and my mamma who are willing to pack me! :)

Another thought I had today-completely off topic from packing-my days of singing in the car are over! I was watching Glee (any thoughts on the show? i am still undecided...) and it made me want to sing! Then I realized the only time I really sing is when no one can hear me when I'm driving. Since I don't drive anymore...I don't really have singing time anymore! I suppose I could sing on the subway? or while I'm walking down the street? Ha. Don't think that will be happening anytime soon.

One last random thought: I'm going to be in downtown NYC on September 11th. Deloitte's office is actually right across the street from the World Trade Center site. That should be interesting...

I think I would have had a lot more suitcases than that! Good work! Also... try singing in the shower. You are a lone there.

Oh Erin I miss you but I am so happy for you. It looks like you are going to have such a great experience there. :)

On Glee... I too am undecided. I really like the pilot last year but yesterdays episode was a little disappointing for some reason. We will have to see where it goes from here. :)

Erin! We're twins. I never pack my own suitcase AND I sing in the car! :) Looks like you might just have to hit up a karaoke bar! Minus the bar, of course.

I think you should sing at work for everyone to hear!

Also, you look hot in your first day of work picture! You're such an adult!

Post pics of your new place when you get a chance!

just a heads up.

NEVER SING ON THE SUBWAY EVER! that's the mating call for the loser pickpocket thieves that always ride the subway.

but kudos for only having 5 suitcases, and packing/unpacking so fast. :)

5 suitcases? Better than a moving truck! How did you bring so little? Was your place furnished? Way to go.

I want to see your apartment and all your fun new furniture! :)
