Sometimes objective third parties can see the light more clearly than those who are too involved. Plus, I know there are many people here who are more familiar with NYC than I am.
We are all set to celebrate our twins' 18th birthday on Thursday, July 7th, by taking a tour of the Museum of Arts and Design, followed by dinner at Robert. (Thanks, nywhiz, for that suggestion ... we're looking forward to it.) We are driving in from the suburbs.
And THEN! Oldest daughter pops out of the woodwork and says she wants to come home from Washington DC to surprise them for their birthday. Nice of her, but seriously do I need this snag at the last minute?
She will be taking a BoltBus because "Mooooommmm, it's so much less expensive than the traaaiiiinnnnn."
She will be dropped off by the BoltBus at the corner of 33rd and 7th at 8:15 p.m., as long as traffic going through the Lincoln Tunnel is not awful.
Says she will walk anywhere to meet us. I'm trying to keep this a surprise from my husband and the twins but I don't know where she should walk so my husband doesn't have to re-park the car after already parking on the Upper West Side.
Please, please ... any ideas
