On Saturday we embarked on a vacation to New York State. My wife is from Western New York and I am from Long Island. We met and married in Buffalo.
I took off work from my Saturday job at Home Depot. I needn't have. It took all day to do laundry, pack, and run errands. I just got back from my last run of errands with my oldest son, in time for the rest of the family to have gotten the mini-van loaded. So I we all got in and I attempted to start the car. The battery is dead. Dome lights were on too long. Had to call AAA.
By 10:30 pm we finally got going. My wife and I took turns driving and there were numerous bathroom breaks. We finally pulled into the Homewood Suites in Syracuse at 4 am. - exhausted. We fully intended to attend a Vineyard church service but didn't make it. The hotel had a pc for guests to use, so I did. Can't stay away from TF for too long.
We had to drop our oldest son off at Beaver Camp in the middle of nowhere, near the thriving metropolis of Lowville, NY. I suggested that while we were up in this area maybe we can make a quick stop in the Watertown & Oswego area. That didn't fly. Also, it would have been gauche.
After dropping my oldest son off at camp, we began another exhausting drive toward Buffalo, to another Homewood Suites. We got in at 9:30 pm and had our favorite supper and beverage - pizza & wings and Loganberry. Just HAD to have wings and Loganberry!
Found another room with 2 pc's. Just HAD to check out the forums. Had to almost cajole a couple kids into vacating the pc's! Don't kids watch TV anymore?
