: When I got home today, I thought, "This is what time I got up yesterday, and I have work 18 hours since then." This is my life.

A busy day today (I love projects!) and tomorrow. As if I hadn't put enough things off to do tomorrow, my first day off (an actual 24 hours with no work) in ages, I now have a random interview. But that is a good thing. Also on my plate: Grocery shopping, emissions check, and a Stampin' Up party. Hmm, there must be more things on my list at home because that doesn't sound like very much.

Saturday morning, after a 2 hour nap at Grandma's, we are heading up to the cabin for the day. I am bringing the chips, hence the need for grocery shopping. I believe I could live on cereal for another week or two, although I can tell the caramel colorant is starting to affect me.

: Happy Birthday, John! yay!

Embarrassing Story: The other day, I was making a page (on our overhead paging system) and said something to the effect of "Mary Jones, how may I direct your call?" and I said it in a paging voice, not an answering the phone voice. Then I started doing it again today! Luckily I caught myself. No one said anything. Maybe they are used to ignoring pages and didn't notice. Heh.

Good Luck and Pretty Chicken: I went to Taco Bell for dinner (sorry Sumana), out to eat for the first non-necessary (lazy) time since John's been gone. Then I went to the grocery store. One less thing to do tomorrow, which is good because I really did have more things than I mentioned. Someone took the spot I was trying to park in, but when I parked and got out of the car, I found six cents!

I bought chips for the party, flour for the food drive, and some pretty chicken. It was very expensive chicken, but I was smart and got it cheap. I am going to make something especially yummy for John with it, like Chicken Cordon Bleu.

I had a nice conversation about artichokes with several ladies in line. Yum, artichoke. I learned, while reading about different herbs, that artichoke is an aphrodisiac.
