Day 22 - Going, Going, Going 24 Hours Straight

It has been really hard to play catch up on these blog entries.  I'm going to do the best I can but I might skip a few days here and there.  Cut me some slack already! Ha.

Woke up at 4 am in the Ft Lauderdale Hard Rock.  The flight back to NJ was pretty uneventful - except I paid for first class and got bumped to second class.  How does that ever happen?  Welcome back to Newark Airport! (yuck).  I had to drive north to pick up some contraband from my friend Justin, then back south (past Newark Airport - yuck) to get home, then back north to my reunion in Nutley (past Newark Airport - yuck), then south - back home (past Newark Airport - yuck) after the reunion.

I was only home for a very short period of time.  I caught a 30 minute nap and then I was off and running again.  I had just enough time to unpack my fish, grab a nap and get cleaned up and changed.  I traded Pete one of my Yellow Jacks for a jar of pickles he made and then he Ubered me up to Nutley with my friend Rob.

Today I cheated a bit by having a few beers with some old friends.  There was a big spread of catered  food at the reunion but I think I was good in only having a large salad for my meal.  I didn't do much 'surviving' today on the food front, but just to survive this day was a miracle in itself.  I may have sneaked a cheese steak in there somewhere as well but I don't fully remember all of the events after the first few beers!
Great time catching up with old friends!
Wow - lots of travel today.  I don't know how I made it through the day after going non stop but I did.  I was up at 4 in Florida and stayed up until 4 in Nutley - a full 24 hours going, going, going.  I have a feeling I'm going to crash pretty hard for a couple of days.  Back at it tomorrow.
