That Answers my Question

Unless something drastic happens to change my mind within the next week and a half, I'll be going with everybody else on the 20th. Mom answered my question earlier by saying that "No, we definitely won't be staying", so if worse comes to worse we'll get home around 2 in the morning and I'll go out for a snack as if I was just getting home from work. I still have the 21st booked off as well, after all, and going out someplace is the only thing I really wanted to stay home for. The only problem now is figuring out when I'm going to make bread, and I'd also like to make cookies or some other sort of snack (along these lines, if not that exact recipe), but finding the time for all of those will, as yet, be a bit difficult. I probably should've asked for Friday off as well, but there's still a chance of not working then, which I'll see about for certain at the end of the week.

Another thing that changes is there being no point to waiting until Saturday to get snacks, so I decided to do that tonight. Mostly because I have tomorrow off and felt that I had to with being done at 11, so after leaving work I walked up the street to Shoppers and bought a couple things there. At first I was planning to head straight home after that, only taking the time to stop at 7-11 along the way, but as I got closer and closer to the intersection, I found myself growing increasingly excited by the thought of walking down McNaughton to Michener and wherever else from there. So I did, which took me all the way out to the latter street, then around to Queen and from there out to Indian Creek and back as before. It's strange, really, to have gone all the way out there on a whim, when it seemed so far before, and with my new shoes that left my legs hurting quite a bit when I made it to work on the way there. Of course, it took me about two hours instead, but accounting for the time I took changing at work then selecting various items at Shoppers and 7-11, I still have to have made it in about an hour and a half.

Unfortunately, my spending isn't done yet, but all I plan to buy next is the appropriate number of chocolate bars I need for this cake recipe at Giant Tiger tomorrow. Four seems about right, but there's a problem with the recipe, in that it calls for the cake to be baked in a single pan, whereas every single one Mom has made before was split into two, then stacked up afterwards with icing in between. Although I could still do that, but going that route would require more caramel ice cream syrup. Although setting the recipe aside, that means I have vacuuming to take care of right away tomorrow, followed by a trip out to Giant Tiger, then dishes, after which comes laundry, and probably one or two other things I'm forgetting. As such, I'm off to bed right now, but not before copying these ingredient lists and baking directions into Notepad so I don't have to keep going back to them in Firefox. Such fussiness~
