Home work

I’m working from home today and I made sure to get an early start (6 AM) even though I’m home because I wanted to make sure I had time to run a few quick errands before heading off Orland tonight. So after putting in 3 straight hours (between 6 and 9 AM), I took a short break to take care of a few things:

  • Picked up the Orioles tickets from FedEx
  • Stopped in a Petco to get more litter for Zeke; while there, also got him new food and water dishes
  • Picked up some spring water because I was all out
  • Emptied all of the trash and took out the recycling
  • Started a load of laundry

The new “dishes” I got for Zeke are the kind where you can put 5 lbs of dry food and a gallon of water so that there is a constant amount of each. He already had one like that for water but it was getting old and cleaning it didn’t seem to help much. He was a little suspicious of them at first, but he warmed up to them quickly.

I didn’t mail my tax papers to the accountant yet. I’ll do that before heading over to Kelly’s later this afternoon. I also need to gas up the car. Finally, I need to pack. I’m waiting for the load of laundry to finish, but based on the forecast for Orlando through the weekend, I’m bringing the pair of jeans that I’m wearing, 3 pair of shorts, some t-shirts, a swimming suit and gym clothes. Packing light. The weather looking to be beautiful.

Our flight isn’t until 9:30 tonight. I’m heading over to Kelly’s later and we’ll head to the airport around 6:30 or so. It means we’ll get there a little early, but we’ll go hang out at the Red Carpet Club.

I checked with Powell’s: my copies of Asimov’s Annotated Don Juan and Asimov’s Annotated Gilbert & Sullivan are due to arrive at some point today.
