It’s been raining all day with temperatures in the high 30’s. I’ve been trying to get the meal planning and grocery shopping done during the week so that the Employed One can
relax do other shit around the house. Anyway – I planned out the meals for the week. Most of them need to be super quick because of the gym. On Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays it has to be the fastest meals because those are the days when we work out a muscle group.
With shopping list in hand, rain dropping from the sky, I made it to Walmart. Of course it still rained as I loaded the groceries into the Jeep. Once home I unpack the bags and separated the ingredients for each meal, stuck them in a bag of their own and put them into the pantry. This way I only need to grab the bag, and the appropriate perishables. Most of the meals are crockpot meals. 2 of them are new recipes I picked out of a cookbook that sounded tasty.
On Tuesday I mentioned my communication issues with Henderson Properties. Someone called this afternoon to let me know that a maintenance guy would be here before 5. I’m disappointed at the lack of priority I got. From Tuesday to Friday. I just know the guy will come out here and say he’ll be back with a stove part next week. It’s been raining all day so will the guy want to play with an exterior outlet in the rain? I switched on the fireplace after the call to hopefully duplicate the problem prior to the repairman’s arrival so we’ll see what happens with that.
Wait no longer. The fireplace wouldn't act up. He fixed the outlet. He’ll have to come back with the stove burner element. Maybe Monday. He “has a big project” which is the exact excuse I heard the last time from him.
|We spent a lot of time in one of our favorite places. San Leandro was our portal to San Francisco. We had so much to see and do. I wrote about mispronouncing a word which is funny because several days ago, Alix blogged about a similar subject. Click here for Alix’s humorous post and here for my post from last year.|
Jim and I hit the gym. The gym only has two stair master machines so when they’re both free we usually grab them. Tonight we did 30 minutes… I thought I was going to die. I can do 45 minutes on elliptical. Stairs? Not so much!
By the way, fellow bloggers, feel free to do your own Day In History.
