Well, I got my washing machine and dryer hooked up and managed to get a couple of loads of laundry done last night. This means I did not have to go to work today in a flour sack. Unfortunately, the couplings on the hot and cold water hook-ups for the washer have developed a drip. Now I have to go to Orchard Supply and Hardware and get some gaskets that fit, if I can find them. I also need to level both machines.
I still haven't found all my silverware yet. This is most vexing. My house is still full of boxes, although most of them have finally been opened so I at least have a rough idea of where things are. Now I just have to decide how to organize and store it. Decisions, decisions. Between living in a house full of boxes and this lovely spring weather cranking my libido up, I feel like the horny [insert favorite ethnicity to belittle here] who spent the night in a warehouse.
I did find my cutlery and some of the miscellaneous camping eating utensils that I packed with that, but it was so late last night when I found those that I blew off my Budget Grommet frozen meal for the day. I also managed to find my skillets. Theoretically, I could have cooked breakfast this morning, but my stove-top is occupied by a whole bunch of stuff that needs organizing and put away. Gah, I'm starving. Yesterday I had an apple, two handfuls of raisins, and a bag of Pop Secret Kettle Corn. Call me an idiot. As I write this, it is 45 minutes to lunch and I am torn between hitting the vending machines or taking an enormous bite out of my desk! I must hold out, then I can go have a nice lunch at the Marina Gourmet Coffee Mill. On days when I don't pack a lunch, I usually get:
- a roast beef sandwich on whole wheat bread with lettuce, tomato, Swiss cheese and Dijon mustard
- a couple handfuls of corn chips
- a nice dill pickle spear
- a cup of chili (maybe a bowl of it today, since I missed breakfast)
- a regular sized, single mocha
