Tough Tuesday...

It had snowed a little bit over night. It made the trash can run to the road a little slippery.

I got to work around 7:20 a.m. and there was nobody here! WTF? Where is Courtney?

My boss got it a little bit later and said that Courtney was staying home today. So, when Fred and Jeff got in, I suggested that Jeff play some of his jazz music for a change (Courtney has the radio tuned to one of those "I Heart" stations that basically play the same damn songs over and over). He asked if I had a preference and I said, "Anything that isn't Adele whining!"

I went and picked up my new glasses. I can definitely see better, but I'm not sure I look better...



I had no time to each lunch as a restaurant, so I stopped at the Farmington Burger King and got some of those chicken nuggets Jake raves about. I was never sure if it was their taste or their price he liked.
I thought you got sauce with them, but I didn't. They weren't bad plain, though.

Sidebar: I did text Jake and ask about the sauce. He said they come with two and they should have asked, but he always specifies BBQ.

Funny story about my new glasses. I came in the office and John, an older tech, said, "I didn't know you wore glasses!" I thought he was kidding, but he insisted he wasn't. They I went to get some coffee and Nicole, the receptionist, said, "Wow! I didn't realize you wore glasses!" She wasn't kidding, either.

Apparently my wire frames were a bit more discreet.

I got the trash can in and buttoned up the house for the night. I peeled and cut up two russet potatoes. I put them in the Dutch oven, covered them with a bag of sauerkraut and topped that with sliced smoked sausage. I brought it to a boil, turned it to a simmer and covered it.

While I waited for supper. I tried to call my Brother Jim and wish him a happy birthday. I just got his voicemail.

I ate dinner while watching the end of the news.

Jim did called me back and we chatted briefly.

I watched most of NCIS. But, I was snuggled under the cover and fell asleep before the end.
