Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Remember how excited I was in yesterday’s post? Well today, I’m just about the opposite!! We didn’t get to go to the show! I’m so upset and angry about it, that it’s kind of funny in a way!
Okay, so maybe I’m a tad bit sarcastic when I’m upset… but in all seriousness, we really didn’t get to go to see Aladdin on Broadway today. Unfortunately, the weather conditions were so horrible in the northeast today, that the icy roads prevented us from getting to the city. We drove for two hours and didn’t even make it out of our own county. We had to turn around and go right back home (which took another full hour). It was horrible. But I thank my lucky stars that we all made it home in one piece, because so many people got into accidents today.
The good news is that after a lot of craziness and about six different phone calls, we were finally able to reserve tickets for Tuesday night’s show, and we’ll be able to go down and switch our tickets from today. So we’ll still get to see the show, but it’ll just screw up our week night a little bit. But at least that’s only two days away… I couldn’t believe that of all the days it could ice and close down the NYS Thruway and Palisades Parkway, it had to be the day that we were supposed to go to the city. Sheesh! Just our luck!
On a more serious note, my best friend’s college roommate was on the road when a car hit her. She’s in the hospital now with a collapsed lung and fractured sternum. I’d like to keep her, and everyone else who had the misfortune of being in an accident today, in my thoughts tonight, and I hope that you’ll do the same. I wish everyone a speedy recovery and good luck with fixing any car damage.
I’d greatly appreciate it if you would share this blog with friends and family through your favorite social media sites. If you’re sharing on Twitter, don’t forget to tag me (@TayTayK02) and use the hashtag #TaylorTalks.
My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
