I was all set to come home and do a bunch of writing but it’s just not happening tonight. I am pretty tired and thing I am going to get a good night’s sleep tonight. A couple of drinks certainly helped me along the way to being ready to hit the sack. They damn sure relaxed me anyway.
For a first day back at work it was rather uneventful. Most of my folks showed up for work, on time even. I had one manager off today, so I spent the majority of the day in her store although I had to visit all three in order to put together the end of week paperwork that they should have all done yesterday.
It was meeting day, being Thursday, so I didn’t get home from work until almost six this evening after making a brief stop at the grocery store. The wife had invited friends over for supper and they arrived shortly after the time I got home.
We had a pretty nice dinner consisting of home-made Fajitas. My tomatoes have been ripening lately and with all the rain we’ve had the last few days they are looking really nice. I only have one Bell Pepper plant this year, and it’s not doing so well because of the dry spell we went through. The banana and jabenero peppers are looking great though. Pretty soon I will be able to start making salsa again. I don’t know a whole hell of a lot about preserving and canning, so I just freeze the shit. It keeps for awhile and it’s not like I am trying to store several years worth at a time.
Anyway, the wife made Margaritas to go with dinner. They were pretty good although she and her friend said they tasted funny. They seemed fine by me, but I only had one and then had a bourbon and Coke after. Can’t drink much on a work night, so that was all for today.
The wife made our reservations for Helen the weekend of October 12th-14th. I still don’t know if I am going to manage to get the weekend off, but the wife will be there at least. We are staying in a cabin this year. Right now the manager has set aside a couple of cabins and something like five rooms aside for us as well, all in the same general area. The rates are pretty damn good as well. There are more details over at V-Man’s site. I had my next vacation all set up to be on the original date we had agreed upon for Helen in September but then the boy had to go off and join the Marine Corps. Damned inconvenient kids. 🙂
I suppose that’s about it tonight. Nothing profound or particularly gruesome and not even a single paid post for the evening. How fucking boring. Maybe I can dredge something up later. If it’s anything like last night I will be awakened around 2am by a small child crawling into bed and be up for an hour or so before I can get back to sleep for that final hour before the alarm sounds.
