The Parking Fairy
Everyone in her version of the world has one, and hers is the fairy that finds you a parking space no matter where you go.
Well, either she ditched her, or she loans her to me in December. Because this month as I dash from store to store, no matter whether it's for our Chanukkah party or for Christmas shopping, I always seem to find a great parking space wherever I go!
I won't be needing her tonight because tonight we are heading out to Pennsylvania to spend the night at our favorite hotel. Tomorrow after a few stops for some special holiday goodies (my dad loves Wilbur chocolate), we will be heading further north towards New York and holiday times with our family--everyone but my brother and his family, that is :(
But there's valet parking at the wonderful restaurant we're having dinner at tomorrow night--the one we went to back in May, the one we got married in.
There's a garage near my parents' house, and we'll be paying $10 a night to park there and avoid the chaos that is trying to park your car in the Bronx. And Christmas Day, there will be the garage near my in-laws house.
And then we're going home.Probably Sunday, instead of Monday, because of the snow threat.
Home to where there will be a parking space in our small lot, because we'll leave the Man's car there while we're away.
So I won't need you again this week, Parking Fairy.
Thanks. And happy holidays!
