I can't believe I haven't updated all week. Remember when I used to update daily/several times a day? Yeah, me neither. ANYWAYz, work has been work. Everything is spiraling down into a cesspit of despair. One colleague put in her two week notice, and the rest of us are frantically looking for different jerbz. I don't think my situation is as shaky as some others', but, still, the handwriting is on the wall ...
Besides work stress, I did go running 3 times this week. Yay! I am thinking of waking up early in the morning to run, but I'm not sure if that's a good idea or not. It would involve me getting up around 4:20AM. Which means, I will need to go to bed around 8:30 or 9. That seems ridiculously early. I may give it a try for a week or two to see how it works. I'll let you know.
On Thursday, I took a long lunch and met Carolyn and Kristen. We haven't hung out together in YEARz. so that was fun catching up.
On Friday, I met up with V for drinks and dinner. We got a free drink at the first bar (Sidebar) and over-charged one drink at the restaurant (Pacci's). So, I guess it all balanced out.
Yesterday, I ran errands. I pickled the purple carrots. That was a little disappointing, because they were only purple on the outside. I was hoping they'd be purple all the way through. Oh, well. I had some leftover brine, so I also pickled some cherry tomatoes. We'll see how that works out. The carrots are delicious. I threw in a jalapeno and a serrano chile, so they are a little spicy. Nom.
And, today, the only plan I have is to head over to K's this afternoon to hear about his trip to Brazil. He's going to make caipirinhas. That should be boozy good times.
I should also iron. And clean out the litter box. Oh, boy. Who knows how to have a good time?
Have a great day!
