Well, I'm back at work and some semblance of sanity is returning to my life. Last week has been a real trip, and though the craziest part is over, there is still much to do. I still haven't been able to pack my lunch yet or to fry myself breakfast. I'm still looking for my skillets and the Ziploc bags in which I put my lunch.

Today is my dad's birthday. I've got to call him this evening. Stupid me, I didn't get him a card yet. I've got to find a Hallmark somewhere in this town and take care of that while the issue is still pertinent. It's bad enough that the darned thing won't be postmarked until tomorrow. I called my dad. He didn't talk long. He's not a big conversationalist when talking on the phone. He begged off to go eat a chicken salad sandwich after not much more than a few minutes of conversation.

I have two refrigerators now. I have my refrigerator from my old house installed in the kitchen, where the water for the ice and water on the door has not been hooked up, so I haven't turned it on so that the pump will not run. I have to call the plumber to hook up a small copper line to the back so that I can turn the darned thing on. Until then, I am using the one which came with the house, which I had the movers move to the garage, where it is currently plugged in and running. I'm keeping stuff in there for the nonce.

I went to the store last night. I bought the following bare-bones essentials:

  • butter
  • 7 Red Delicious apples
  • deli-ham
  • eggs
  • mustard
  • resins (oops! haven't touched a bong in years...really!) raisins
  • bread (although I believe that there's some in the breadbox, if I can remember which box that's in)
  • Kraft American Cheese Slices
  • Alpine Lace Swiss Cheese Slices
  • carton of 12 cans, Diet Caffeine-free Diet Coke
  • 8 assorted frozen Budget Gourmet (grommet) meals
  • toilet paper
Note: I miss Food 4 Less in Lodi already. I looked for mangoes and apparently Nob Hill Foods doesn't carry them or they could just be out for the season. Hmm, I am definitely going to have to find some store that does carry them. Geeze, is so much to explore and research when you move to a new town. I have become addicted to mangoes, which I find I need to have at least a couple times a month. Thanks ingenuemuse, if you dropped off the planet tomorrow, and I lived to be two hundred years old, I will still never eat a mango without thinking of you.
