A few days off
Wednesday, April 17, 2013
As of five o'clock this evening, I am off work until Tuesday morning. Huge sigh of relief! I don't think it's entirely from work, but I've felt stressed and tearful for days. I just need a serious break.
Besides the small matter of the car registration, I'm planning to slowly go about getting some stuff done around my apartment, like bundling up some more stuff for the Salvation Army. Some of my dresses are so old they still have shoulder pads! That should tell you how far out of style they are.
Today my copy of The Complete Irish Pub Cookbook arrived. Quite a few goodies I'm looking forward to making from that. Alex Guarnaschelli's cookbook is next. She's my favorite judge on Chopped, my favorite TV show.
The tax refund will be here in a few weeks. The plans are a new bed, new knives and a new set of dishes. Pfalzgraff has the set I always wanted for way less than half price! As for the knives, I'm working with a three year old set of K-Mart knives and they're pretty well ready to donate. I want some really good kitchen knives.
Time to fix some dinner and chill for the evening.
