Despite the trouble I’ve had getting to work on time recently, I was in Fallbrook before 8 this morning for my semi-annual teeth cleaning. That went well, but I discovered tonight how sensitive my gums are when I brushed my teeth.
I did a horrible thing on my way to the office. I’ve been trying to talk myself out of this for some time now, but I ended up at the AT&T store and picked up an iPhone. It’s absolutely absurd that I’m even considering such device as a possibility. I think everything is going about as planned. I’m getting used to the phone, but the service is horrible. The data is so incredibly slow I think sometimes I could walk to Google and ask them for a map or a search result before the phone is able to find the network and get going on it. I really don’t think I could ever use the device actually as a voice communications device (i.e. phone), but since I primarily use my Sprint phone for text messaging and data applications, it has a chance of working out.
I was in the office all alone most of the day. Today was supposed to be a day off for Batch, but of course he was still working and Tara was out with her dog. I was able to hold the fort down for the most part, I just forget how lonesome it is to be there without any company.
Batch and I went to finish up an install tonight. We had to touch up some programming and install a switch to change programs on an audio DSP unit. We then went out to Cheesecake at Tyler mall where I got to try the new peppermint bark cheesecake. It was pretty good, and I have half of it leftover because I was so stuffed!
White chocolate peppermint cheesecake swirled with chunks of white chocolate and crunchy peppermint, all served on a delicious flourless chocolate cake crust, and topped with chocolate peppermint bark.
Hurry – supplies limited!
Today was pretty uneventful at work. I almost got there on time this morning, but decided that I wasn’t sure if the place I need to go first was going to be open at 8 and decided an extra hour of sleep would probably be a good thing. Especially since I really didn’t sleep well last night. I could not fall asleep for some reason. Maybe I was just too excited. I seriously would have gone back and done it all again today; I know I’m weird.
So I still need to come up with all the details from yesterday, but it is too late tonight to be doing that. Maybe tomorrow. I’m not sure what is going on there since I never found a date for the dinner paddle. Maybe I can finally have my quiet evening at home.
The girls came over after Institute and helped eat some Cheesecake. Of course Maegan left some for me to finish off tomorrow.
I finally got Sib over here tonight. It nearly involved kidnapping her, nevertheless she came peacefully. We started talking about ideas for painting and she realized what a big job it is going to be. With dinner and then being rushed to go home teaching, we didn’t get anything settled, so we will have to finish it up another time.
Work went well today. Time seemed to fly and I can’t really pinpoint what exactly I was able to accomplish. My desk is still a mess…
Sister Dowden, Larilyn, Kenny and I went to the temple Tuesday night. I hadn’t been in a really long time – I think she the last time I went with Sister Dowden a few (two-three) months ago. It was good and so was the Cheesecake that followed. I got home way too late though and have been having a hard time getting up all week. I’ve barely made it to the office on time and haven’t had the leisurely time in the morning I like to have. That also means I haven’t had a chance to dive deeper into scripture study.
Larilyn was over last night and made cheesecake. Lauren and Michelle came and helped us eat the ground beef tacos that needed to be gone ASAP. Again I was up too late.
I was thinking tonight on the way home from home teaching that I could get to sleep early. Then I decided that this was my only chance to carpet clean Geoff’s room before he moves in, so I decided to do that. Then the hallway outside the garage. After the third time I filled the machine up, I decided it was time to call it a night! I’m glad I did it though because it appears that it pulled a lot of dirt out of the carpet. I need to work on doing a room a night or something so I can get the whole house done.
Geoff is moving in tomorrow, so my peace and quiet may be gone. I’m thinking that maybe I’ll start actively looking for more roommates once I’ve got him settled in so I can bring in the cash to keep working on the project list. Sib told me tonight not to get married, just so I could keep both sides of the closet! Oh the joys of sharing…
I’ve got dinner plans with the family tomorrow night and am hoping to get some family history done at the same time although I understand Tom won’t be home. Then I’m hoping to get the first movie night in this week and we’ll see what fun projects the weekend brings.
