>I trekked out to Queens this morning and had brunch with my friends Dr. P and Dr. R. From there, Dr. P and I drove out to Long Island and hit an outlet mall and Home Depot. I spent too much money, but damn did I get a cute dress.

While eating frozen yogurt at the mall, I got an email from my sister with a picture of my nephew. I have not seen him in person since the 4th end* of July, and she hasn't sent me any new pictures in a month. He's so big now! Of course, I think he is totally adorable:

It was such a nice day. I just wish I could spend more time with all the people I love and don't get to see enough because they live far away.

*Thanks Mar. Clearly, Maurice was overtired and not running fast enough on his wheel.
