I just want to share some of the things that impacted me over the past 4 days in small, easy to digest pieces. And I want to be able to jump all over the place as I think about things and not have to worry about getting it in order.
So, the first thing I'll talk about is the microscopic size of our hotel room.
I knew hotel rooms in NY are small. I knew that the room I booked was going to be even tinier than most. But really, one can't comprehend staying in a room that is literally 8 by 10 feet until it happens. There was a full bed with about 2 feet of space on each side of it (except for the head, of course, which was against the wall.) There was a small bathroom attached to our sleeping quarters, and a wall mounted flat screen t.v. which was about the only possibility for a tv in that space. I really didn't mind that the room was so small. We spent hardly any non-sleeping time in it. (And the bed was soooo comfortable, I'll give them that. Perfect mattress and luxurious bedding.) It was just an odd thing to be confined in such a small area and I did get hit by the door a few times.
