To Nanuet

I ended up leaving for Nanuet at 1:15 PM and I didn’t get to Norm and Vicky’s until 7 PM, almost 6 hours later! I hit about an hours worth of traffic in Delaware, where several lanes were shut down for construction. And I hit about another hour’s worth of traffic in Newark.

But I got here, and shortly after I arrived, Norm, Vicky, and I headed out to get some dinner. On the way, we stopped to do a few errands (an art supply store where Norm bought some carvable pumpkins and a Radio Shack where Vicky got a new Sirius radio to replace one that had broke). We then headed over to Ruby Tuesdays at the Nanuet Mall for dinner.

When we got back to their house, we spent the rest of the evening watching wedding video samples (and making fun of them), and an episode of CSI Miami (making fun of that). Eric and Ryane are coming down tomorrow afternoon and tomorrow evening is “game night”.
