This was a long week and all I wanted to do is relax and sleep in late. Well, that didn't happen. I was up at 8 am, finished up the laundry and then headed to the vehicle emissions center. The line wasn't dreadfully long so I waited patiently so that I could get the slip that said that my car passed. Then off I went to get an oil change which took a little maneuvuring to pull my car into the bay nose first. As always, they try to upsell you on things you really don't need when you can get someone to do it for you at a fraction of the price they quoted you. No thanks! Basic oil change and new wiper blades was all I wanted today.
Whew, now that my car is taken care of, it was time to head to Copeland's for an appreciation luncheon for the mentors. I look forward to these luncheons every year as it gives the mentors and other leaders time to fellowship. My seat was assigned with my name nicely typed on a name plate and I sat with folks who were able to engage in varied conversations from the law to how stressed out young college students are in an effort to excel. Anyway, when the server came by our table, I ordered the crabcake and shrimp alfredo which I couldn't finished because I had already dined on a biscuit and the house salad. So I packed it all up along with my dessert (carrot cake - yum) to take home with me.
But wait, I didn't quite make it home as I stopped at Giant to do my grocery shopping. That was another hour and then I finally made it back home with bags and bags of "stuff" at around 3 pm. Still, I needed to relax so I watched last night's episode of Fringe and then I had work to do. However, I have no intention of being up all night working.
It's 7 pm and I just pulled a bottle of unoaked Sauvignon Blanc from the wine rack and placed it in the refridgerator - dunno if I'll get to it tonight though. Yes, it was quite a day! Lovely weather though :)
