It's been a while since RO and I got together. So unless she were to cancel, there was no way that I was going to miss a chance to socialize with a friend in Marian Mode....

Although I got up earlier than usual this morning, it took me a while to get moving for the day. But once I was moving, I was up and running and out the door by 1 pm. Although I had clear sailing to Long Island, it took me forever to go the last miles to RO's house.
I had time to kill once I crossed the bridge, so I thought I'd be able to do some window shopping at Lane Bryant and have a cup of coffee nearby. Unfortunately, traffic was still jammed to the bridges, and any route I'd take from the shopping center I rested at would be overcrowded. So I planned to take side roads out to Nassau County. Sadly, even the side roads were no relief, since I oozed Eastward on Northern Boulevard and encountered traffic jams on every route that would take me across both the Long Island Expressway and the Northern State Parkway.
Eventually, I made it to RO's place and we then made it out to Target and then to Walmart to do some shopping for things other than clothes. After this, we both were famished, so it was off to Famous Dave's for BBQ. "YUM!" is all I can say when I think of BBQ. And RO was very glad that I chose this place. While there, we talked about her relationship with her boyfriend and issues I have to deal with for the co-op. Even though I enjoyed the food, I know I can't have it too often, as it is very salty and would do a number on my blood pressure readings.
Sadly, our evening had to come to an end. Hopefully, we'll be able to get together again before the holidays.
