Time Event
Another long day
This time I put in 1 1/2 hour of comp time, for an 8 1/2 hour day. That was because this morning I was in Manhattan for a meeting. It's what they have nowadays instead of the old YA Tea and it can't hold a candle to it. But that is as may be, we got the new Best Books for Teens list, and heard booktalks about some of them, and had an author speak.

Then I went back and worked the rest of the day, which was pretty quiet all told.

After work the FWiB called and we had a nice conversation. He is having trouble with his wifi at the nursing home he needs to get out of there.

After that [personal profile] mashfanficchick and her mother and Theo picked me up and we went shopping for stuff.

And then I came home, and in my nightly call to Oldest Brother we started setting things up for Christmas and Christmas Eve at The Kid's. We have our hotel reservation, and are looking into a rental car. This means I had to put Oldest Brother as an authorized user on my credit card, as he doesn't have a credit card, and I don't have a drivers license. It's going to be a hassle, but we should be able to pull everything off.

Gratitude List:

1. Books for the Teenage.

2. The FWiB.

3. Friends.

4. Expedia.

5. Quiet day.

6. Coffee.

Current Mood: accomplished
Got the bathroom finished today
The carpenter was here to do the bathroom wall, and the plumbers were here to fix the mixed up kitchen sink faucets. But the carpenter refused to do the closet today even though he had time. Grrr. So I think he's coming next Friday.

Oldest Brother came over and we did some work in the living room. Also booked a car rental through Expedia, but when I texted The Kid she said that we could do a whole lot better, and she found us another car through Holidaycars.com which is much cheaper.

We went out to dinner and while we were en route the FWiB called and we talked. Had a nice conversation, but short since we stopped when Oldest Brother and i got seated for dinner. We went to a gyro place, and had gyro platters, and then split a piece of baklava for dessert.

Came home and that's hen I texted The Kid, and she called and we ended up with her booking the car for us.

Obviously I missed my meeting again. Darn it.

Gratitude List:

1. Oldest Brother.

2. The Kid.

3. The FWiB.

4. I no longer have a hole in my bathroom.

5. Things accomplished.

6. Good dinner.

Current Mood: drained
