Weird-ass last seven days...

I grilled on the Fourth as I'd had planned.

On July the Fifth, I quit my job.

Sidebar: I cannot explain this at all. I was in the shower, cleaning up to go to work, when I thought, "I can't do this anymore." So, I sent a text to my boss, telling him I quit.

He did not take it well... I apparently forfeit all my accrued vacation by not giving them two weeks notice.

He said I had to come in, pick up my stuff, turn in keys and badge and sign some papers.

I told him not that day. Then, I took the rest of the week off. I got a well-needed inch of rain one night.

Amanda came over with some Lemon Shrimp on white rice on Thursday. We ate dinner and then sat on the patio for a couple of hours.

I talked to both Jake and Melissa over the weekend.

I finally went in Monday morning, driving through heavy rain. I packed the rest of the two boxes (Courtney had already started packing my first box). Not exactly sure what I forgot. Everybody was very helpful and everybody loaded up my special chair in the back of the truck.

The problem was unloading the chair in light rain. Never realized how heavy that sucker was! Courtney had offered Mike's help after work. Sorta wish I'd taken her up on that.

But finally, my special chair was in the office, and the old office chair was out to the road.

Amanda stopped after her work. She's having some sort of Tupperware-like party tonight, only body lotion. She's making cookies for the treat and offered to drop some by later. I said sure and she left.

I spent the afternoon working on finances (this will be a worry) and looking at Facebook.It stormed here, but it was all over by 4:00 p.m. I checked and I got another inch and a half of rain.

Amanda dropped off the cookies. I ate some leftover goulash for dinner and then the cookies for dessert. They were good!

I watched some taped TV and then the 11:00 p.m. news. I finally went to bed. It had been a long day.
