I Got Me Some Veggie Chips

Today was an interesting day.

Started out with my mother hissing at my dog to come back, because apparently after being outside and splashing around in the lake that is my backyard Gussy decided he really needed to barrel downstairs and jump on my bed. That was fine as it was time to get up anyway.

Then came the floor installation. When my grammy died, she willed her estate to be divided equally. My mother has been obsessing over flooring since she received her inheritance. She kept going back and forth between what kind of flooring she wanted in the kitchen. She finally settle on an Armstrong flooring that isn't linoleum ... more like vinyl. After a month of waiting for it to arrive from Toronto, it's finally being installed today. By an installer and his wife. Both from Germany. He whistled the whole time!

Of course that's not the interesting part. That comes when they move the stove and fridge out of the kitchen. The stove went into the dining room and fridge into the hall, blocking all access to the bedrooms and BATHROOM. I also could not go downstairs because they started laying the flooring down right at the basement door. Fortunately I had thought about that earlier and brought my work clothes up with me so I could get ready for work at 2. UNfortunately I did not foresee the bathroom being blocked off. As some of you know, my living room and kitchen are fairly open, so I had nowhere to dress. So I had to go to the gas station down the hill to use the little girls room and change for work.

Work was good. Slow at the beginning. Picked up big time after supper. But again, that's not the interesting thing. Nope. That would be Nicole torturing me with talk of going to Taco Bell for supper. I soooooo wanted Taco Bell. But I had brought my supper and I knew the crowd would be bad. When Nick and C got back, I was glad I hadn't gone - major crowds. Their order was something like 3400 of the day. But Nicky did bring me a treat! YumYum Viva Veggie chips! Mmm-mmm! I think I am going to have to hide them ... they've become instantly popular with a couple of my pod neighbours. Hehe.

I'm brain dead tonight. I can't make myself think. Total scatterbrain. My brain actually hurts. Hopefully a good sleep tonight will fix that.
