a] Of the two things I needed to take care of outside of work today, the important one has been dealt with: obtaining and giving direct deposit information for my checking account to Mary. I presume it's something to do with everything officially going through on Wednesday, as she needs that information from everyone by tomorrow, but where things like that are concerned, I prefer not to waste any time. Also, in case I forgot to mention it before, something will be different about our pay next week. All the vacation pay we've accumulated since it was last paid out (July, I think) will be paid next week, meaning I'll get even more. As it happens, next Thursday won't come until October, meaning a fair portion of what I make will go to Mom and Dad, but that little bit extra will be one step closer to being where I want to be by the time November comes.
b] I feel like I have almost too much to do now. Last night, I came home from work, did things on my laptop for about an hour, and then just closed it, followed by closing my eyes and laying back in bed for a good ten minutes, thinking about how I didn't know what to do, and really didn't want to do anything that I could busy myself with. Following that, I got ready to go to sleep, and that was it for the rest of the night. I don't feel exactly the same today / this afternoon, mind you, but there's still an awful lot to keep on top of. Picross, downloading episodes of Restaurant Impossible (fortunately, I have only to get the two special episodes of the 4th season now), eventually allowing Windows Updates its requested restart, ever since it asked a couple days ago, and oh, finding time to play Darksiders II and Black Mesa, since I just realized they'd been released yesterday / today. I still plan to go to 7-11 on the way home too. With luck, by the end of tonight, downloading TV show episodes and restarting Windows will have been taken care of. On the other hand, I could go to bed early again. I'd still have all of tomorrow to do things with.
Only two items? I suppose so, considering they still came out as paragraphs. Oh, well, I actually could write about something that happened shortly after I walked out of Food Basics last night. Mom saw all the English muffins I was carrying, and asked "Are those all for you?" I looked at her, thought a moment, and said "As opposed to?" She continued, saying that she thought I might have bought them for supper tomorrow (tonight), which is utterly confusing, as that could never have been the case. First, I didn't ask what we were having for supper tonight at any point yesterday afternoon, nor did she mention that we'd be having something with English muffins. Second, when was the last time I did something like that? If it wasn't unusual for me to buy stuff for everybody for supper, then maybe she'd have reason to ask, but I typically only buy meals for myself. Strange. At any rate though, it's time I left for work, but instead of saying "here's hoping for a good last night before Tuesday off", here's hoping 7-11 has those chocolate bars. Manoah might expect them, but they'd still be a nice treat to have at the end of the night~
