365 Days of Blogging – Day 11 [January 12th]

554 views to the blog already! We woke up to a massive hit on the blog overnight and Layton is going nuts over here. He thinks he is doing some voodoo magic to make the number keep going up and up and up. The hits are coming from Facebook, Twitter, and Google Search, but the majority are from Facebook, so I super appreciate everyone clicking on the link. Now … what shall we do today in NYC?

Well, I have to work, so it doesn’t look like there will be anything fun going on over here. Maybe a quick run to Mimi’s Cafe for my morning coffee, the local Stop n’ Shop for some groceries, and a load of laundry at a nearby laundromat is in order. I’ll keep you posted. Whatever we do, Layton has decided to go topless for the day ;-). He is building with LEGOs and is workin’ up a sweat.

That’s all for now. More to come.

365 Days of Blogging – Day 10 [January 11th] Part III

We had 41 views on the blog yesterday which is an all-time high, but Layton is unsatisfied. He wants 200. Side Note: Is it unsatisfied or dissatisfied. Here is your language lesson for the day.

Unsatisfied has a similar meaning to that of dissatisfied, but the words are not quite interchangeable. To be unsatisfied is simply to be less than fully satisfied. The same event might leave one person actively annoyed (dissatisfied), but another person merely less than 100% happy (unsatisfied).

You are welcome.

That’s all for now. More to come.

Today we are going to visit Jane’s Carousel underneath the Brooklyn Bridge. It will take us just a little over an hour to get there and I’m sure he will only want to stay for 30 minutes, but I’m not working today, so we need to do something fun! I think he will love this.

I just asked him if he wanted to go and showed him a picture. He said, “I’ve done that before and I want to do it again.” First of all, he’s never done it before. I think he might be confusing the smaller carousel at Bryant Park with this one, but whatever. He wants to go, so we are off in about 45 minutes. I need to let my phone charge up. I forgot to do it overnight. Oopsie.

That’s all for now. More to come.
