Yesterday morning was our TB test – the plant anyway. They’ll read them on Thursday. After that we didn’t do much – just waited around for a while for information about the rest of the week and that was it. After we were done, I went into town to Michaels to exchange something and get something else. And then back home to get stuff ready for the Post Office, and then I went there. Mailed some things, got a couple of money orders, and picked up my last 2 boxes mailed from Afghanistan – had to sign for them since I insured them. I was home by 12:30 after all that. I spent the afternoon doing some stuff around the house, got supper going in the crockpot (cooked on high), computered some, and crocheted some before I went to get Robbie from daycare. Dinner was good – pork chops with a sauce made from cream of mushroom soup, cream of mushroom with roasted garlic soup, cream of celery soup, and worstershire sauce. The pork chops were nice and tender after having cooked all afternoon. We had mashed potatoes (fake ones) and corn with it as well. After bedtime for Robbie, I crocheted more.
Today we actually “worked” all morning. After formation, we chopped/scraped/shoveled and otherwise removed the ice from all the sidewalks around the band buildings. I also went to the optometry clinic to get my glasses adjusted and now they don’t hurt my ear and nose. I was let go for lunch about 10:45 and I came home and got a batch of laundry started and Robbie’s clean clothes put away. Had to be back for 1300 formation, and the only thing that happened there was information was put out about the rest of the week. And then we were done. Yay. On my way home, I stopped at the grocery store for milk, cheese, and pepsi, and stopped to pay our water bill for the quarter. When I got home, I did more laundry, vacuumed the house, and balanced my checkbook. It was a productive afternoon. I made tacos for supper and as usual, there weren’t any leftovers. We played for a while and Robbie had a little thing of ice cream for a treat before bed. Then it was crochet time while we watched tv.
