Earlier this year, the Dutchies and I visited New York City – a tradition that actually began long before I was in the picture. It just became a lot easier to do when they had a free “hotel” at my place! We were walking along 42nd street, and I saw something out of the corner of my eye. I stopped, stared, and realized that there was an advertisement with some Dutch cities on it.
Mind you, I no longer remember what the advertisement was about, and there were other cities pictured (in both directions), but it was still interesting enough to take a picture of.
It’s always useful to know exactly how far you have to go to get somewhere!
I also spent some (brief) time in the Palisades center today, a very large four story mall that seems to have everything. Wikipedia says it is the 6th largest in the country. For instance, it has a 21 screen movie theater, an IMAX movie theater, a bowling alley, an ice skating rink, Dave & Buster’s (an entertainment arcade type area for kids and adults), a carousel, and a ferris wheel… and that is just the more unique things. Ask Marco and he’ll tell you that he’s mostly just glad that there are multiple options for getting Icees.
I was there to get a new pair of work shoes. My last pair survived almost 2 1/2 years, so I really can’t complain. And I also ended up handing over my engagement ring to get it resized. I am torn: my finger feels so naked! and please don’t lose my ring! Thankfully it will only take about a week. Hopefully.
Another week begins. Though I’ll be the first to say that I am glad that the students are on Spring break, since I am hoping work is a bit quieter this week. I need to catch up!
