Today was a very long day. I left my small town of Frankenmuth to head to the big city of New York. After a half hour delay and running through the airport we made both of our flights. We meaning my mother and I. I feel like such a flying pro, my mother however, is another story.
Then of course came lunch for this diabetic! We ate at the hotels restaurant. Then it was time to grab the hotels car service and off we were again. This time to my housing in Brooklyn heights.
Upon arriving at my apartment, we were supposed to be meeting the housing coordinator, yet no one was there. This was the most frustrating moment, we had not clue if we missed something and we were standing on the sidekick with three giant suitcases. Finally the housing coordinator, Nadia, shows up and she shows me my apartment. My roommate has not arrived, so I'm currently here alone. After signing lots of paperwork, I start to unpack. With a substantial break to treat an unnatural low blood sugar with the very minimal food we had.
Having finished unpacking, we set out to explore the neighborhood, and find some stores to fill my empty cupboards. It would have been pretty different situation if my mother wasn't there to laugh and have fun exploring with mr. We ended up a block away from the apartment and over looking the water and what a site it was!
It did rain a bit today, but not enough to have an umbrella. We made noodles and butter with yogurt for supper in my apartment/dorm.
I sent mother home with directions and did receive confirmation she made it'll her hotel ok.
So far a great first day as a diabetic in the big city!
