DEC 5th, Lord willing!!

I think I am a brat.

I assume everyone has access to the same places that I do, and therefore don't appreciate what is around me.

Our annual family-going-to-nyc-for-the-holidays is in 3 1/2 weeks.

The Tree gets lit on Dec. 3rd!!

I have seen this tree, probably every year of my American life, so ... for the last 34 years. I never really thought about it. Its just something that we do, something we have always done. My parents took us to NYC, ALOT. They had friends there so it was either visiting, shows or exploring.

I don't think I will ever appreciate the fact that we live so close, therefore its not really a big deal.

I do remember one time though, I was in 5th grade, and I went to a friend's house. I mentioned that we were going into the city the next day, again. ( Maybe the mentioning was more complaining) Well, her eyes got all dreamy and she told me she had never been because her father hated the city, so the family never went. I think my eyes just about popped out of my head. We live all but 45 minutes!! How can you not go??!!??!

It was a bit of a reality check for me. At 10 years old. I keep getting those reality checks from friends in TN, CA, CO and such. Yet, I wish I lived somewhere else but here.

I think I am a brat.
