Chris is on a one-night business trip. He flew out this morning at 4:30 a.m. and returns tomorrow sometime around 7pm. What to do with my one lonely night?
What to do..what to do. I’ll ponder it while at work today – – any suggestions?
In the meantime – I’m 35 years old, but never stop learning stuff:
- When you’ve made a delicious dinner in a slow-cooker . . . turn the damned
thing off after you’ve served dinner, and don’t let it sit on
- Did I mention I am accident-prone? When you’ve recently sprained
your ankle – don’t go bounding down the steps after the cat. Owie!
- It’s not a good idea to drive around with a flat spare tire in your
trunk. Trust me.
- When you bring above-mentioned delicious dinner left-overs to work for
lunch, either bring enough to share, or put up with your co-workers
complimenting you on how great it looks, and how good it smells and then the
subsequent bitching about why you didn’t bring enough to share.
I’m a work in progress.
Election news update, regarding the home front here – – Last year, Chris threatened to go on an extended (read: 3-4 months) business trip during the months of August and September 2004. Chris and I met just after the 2000 elections – and while he’s been known to say things like “Where have you been all my life?” – he will also confess that he’s secretly happy that we weren’t together during that time. He’s a Bush supporter – – but he considers me to be rabid in my politics.
So far, this year, he’s not threatening to go on the business trip anymore — however, he did put a television in my office with cable hook-up and reminded me that I have a door on my office for a reason.
