It's Chinese New Year. It's the year of the tiger. Grr.

It was an interesting night at work. I asked two guests to leave. I gave them a refund and they were still steaming mad. By the way, they couldn't keep their mouth shut while the movie was playing. Then, I had a another interesting guest that complained that the bottled water was too warm. He wanted a large cup with ice and I couldn't give it to him. To make a long story short. He told me that I was being unreasonable and I basically told him that he was.

I work from 2:00 PM to 11 PM today. I hope to get home around 11:30 PM tonight so I can get some good rest for tomorrow. We will meet my family for a Chinese New Year luncheon. So, I know I will overeat tomorrow.

My friend George planned to stay over last night. He didn't because he couldn't find a parking space. Most of the parking spaces are covered with mounds of snow.

I'm planning to go to the gym before going to work.

It's back to work today. I'm so glad that I had a week off from school and work. Although, I am tired from shoveling snow. I wonder how busy we will be tonight. The roads look okay but may be icy as the night progresses.

Yesterday, my life partner and I made it to a bank to get two documents notarized. Then, he went to the post office and sent them off (registered mail).

After he came back from the post office, we went out to lunch. We went to one of our favorite restaurants and had a great meal. Of course, I went over my allotted calories BUT that's okay. I'll burn it off today at the gym. [Note: I burned 1,163 calories at the gym today.]

    Too much snow for tennis but did manage to make a pot of healthy vegetable soup. Must get in some walk time before it gets dark.

    I'm of the mind that the odd time, (and the odd time only), it is OK to go over the alloted intake numbers.
Sometimes we deserve a treat.
Now, that said, we can't let it become a habit.

School is closed again today as well as the Federal government. I wonder if the theatre will be open tonight. I am scheduled to work from 5 PM to 11 PM. Yesterday, the HR manager called and asked me if I can work on Monday because it's a Federal holiday. I said I have classes on Monday and I couldn't. He sounded disappointed. Oh well. What can I do?

It's snowing again. Although, currently not as bad as the snowstorm that started on Friday, February 5 through Saturday, February 6. It may change throughout the day. When will Spring be here?

    I'm in Northern VA and stuck in the same snow. Luckily I got invited to play some indoor tennis last night. Too sore from volleyball the night before to want to serve aggressively, but was fun to get on the court.
