Up at 6:30 AM and into work shortly thereafter. For some reason, I didn’t feel as productive as usual today. Work has seemed relatively quiet all week long, but it just seemed to drag a bit today because I couldn’t get the engines firing on all 8 cylinders.
I made dinner again tonight. This time, it was a caesar salad with a homemade dressing, and linguini and homemade pesto sauce. Once again, thanks to strausmouse and spouce for the recipes. Very garlicy!
I got a $40 check from Washington Gas today. This is hopefully the end of a ridiculous merry-go-round with the gas company. The short version is that they said I owed them money. I called and they said their computers made a mistake and I didn’t owe them money. Next I heard from them was through a collection agency saying that I owed them money. So I sighed and sent them a check for the amount they said I owed. Today, I got that money back. It cost me nothing, but heaven knows how much money the gas company spent on this debacle.
I watched most of Barack Obama’s 30 minute ad spot tonight. I am so ready to vote for him and have this election (to say nothing of the executive government of the last 8 years) over with! I have no doubt that Obama is going to win–and at least in the electoral college, probably win pretty big. I just can’t wait for it to be over.
