It has been sort of a tradition in my office that when someone goes away on a vacation, they bring something back from the trip. I got worried a little because where I was staying really wasn’t a tourist attraction like Manhattan or Atlantic city. My friend told me that there should be gift shops at the many service centers that dot the Jersey Turnpike. He was correct, thankfully.
This is a snow globe that I got for Sheila in my office. I think she will really like this.
Picked up three I love NY shot glasses. Two for the guys in my office. I’m tempted to keep one but I will probably give this to a friend.
This one I will keep. The New Jersey magnet. It’s on the fridge right now. That one I know will stay :)
Now I’m getting ready to call it an evening. It’s going to feel weird going to work in the morning but that’s a part of my life for many years to come I’m afraid.
Feels like an eternity since I have seen the Sun. I think I’m not going to mess with Manhattan this trip. I think they got a lot of snow to clean up and I didn’t bring my boots.
Did go out to New Brunswick, home of Rutgers University. The Sun broke free as I drove off the Garden Parkway.
People drive crazy here. It’s nothing for people to pull out in front of you as if you’re invisible.
Did see some reminders of Hurricane Sandy. While we were along the waterfront of South Amboy, we came across a boat that was tossed up on the beach. Windows busted and hull damaged.
Doesn’t look like this boat will instigate anything in the future.
So close to New York. This bridge leads into Staten Island. I’m finding that I am missing home and I’m looking forward to coming home.
This trip has given me time to think about things. To figure out some things about myself and which direction I feel I must go.
However, home is calling. Friends and family. Warmer weather.
Soon I’ll be home.
If you are on Facebook then I am sure you have seen Facebook walls that are still active of friends or even family members who have passed away.
Facebook has an option to turn the page into a memorial for the deceased.
Go to this link and fill out the required information and supporting page showing an obituary so they can close out the page in a respectful way.
Hey, I have a coworker that needs to pay their bill. I’m going to give them your mobile number…
I don’t think so! My employer doesn’t pay my phone bill. I quickly replied back to her.
She can’t get through. Sad… You give my number out to strangers we are done…
I think she finally got the message.
The nerve of some people…
Wishing everyone of my readers a Happy Thanksgiving holiday! Hopefully, you are able to spend this time with family and friends.
