New York.....Here we Come

March 29th, 2013 at 02:01 am

I haven't said much about this but my DH and I won WWE Wrestle Mania tickets which is in New York this year. We go next week. We leave on Thursday and come back on Monday.

The trip included 2 tickets to the Wrestle Mania event, 2 nights hotel, and flights to New York. We also have been given tickets to go to the Late Show with David Letterman. We are going to hit up a comedy club on our own dime.

Just wanted to see if there are any of you that have suggestions of must-sees in New York. We plan to try and visit the Statue of Liberty, Central Park, and the 9/11 memorial. Any other suggestions would be much appreciated.

Is there anyone that can advise on transportation from Laguartia Airport to Times Square Area?

Thinking of my Blessings

I may be the only one that sometimes does this but Sometimes I get down and out saying "oh woa as me I have this mortgage that is going to take forever to pay or there is always something that comes along that makes me spend more money than I budgeted" Ugh. Then I read about the tons of people that can't find jobs, are struggling to pay bills and even struggling to eat. I just want to kick myself sometimes for getting on my pity party mentality. I think I am an upbeat person for the most part but just can't seem to not feel sorry for myself sometimes. I want to change that and start asking myself "what can I do for my community or that individual that is really struggling" instead of thinking about me all the time. I give to my church and also to our mission programs both locally and worldwide but sometimes I just want to do more. There are so many struggling.

Today at work we hear about all of our budget cuts that are about to take place because the sequester and it just is so disheartening. I work for our Area Agency on Aging and Disability so we do meals and home chores for people. This time besides cutting funding we are going to have to actually take some services from people. It is very sad to get this news. I wish I could do more and I definitely need to quit saying "woa as me" when so many out there are so much worse off than me.
