Don’t look now, but we are nearing the end of January.
Holy crap, what a difference two COVID testing locations make. Last week I went to the Trolley Barn near Little 5 Points and was in and out oven before my 3pm scheduled appointment in less than ten minutes. Yesterday I went to a church on Glenwood by I-20 and finally got out of there over an hour after my 3pm scheduled appointment, more than ninety minutes after I arrived. The problem yesterday was that there was a single queue of cars getting tested, whereas at the Trolley Barn they had many lanes for people to walk into to get tested. I guess if I actually get my results from yesterday’s test it will be worth it.
After I finally got done with my COVID test I made a “quick” trip to Aldi where I somehow managed to rack up a $90 tab, without even buying any alcohol! At least I will have enough food in the house in case I am forced to isolate for a couple of weeks… One of the items purchased last night was a wonderfully cheap, $2.75, frozen pizza with “meat”. Obviously it wasn’t the highest quality pizza I have even eaten, but damn it was good; I ate half list night, and will eat the other half today.
Obviously the weather and COVID testing combined to keep me from doing any outdoor work/exercise yesterday.
Once again Thursday has arrived and I am ill-prepared for German class. I had every opportunity to study after watching Top Chef last night, but didn’t. Shame on me!
I have been up since a little before 5am, have finished today’s Washington Post crossword puzzle, and am just about ready to eat some of the breakfast casserole I have whipped up this morning. Once again I am allowing my inefficient oven to help warm the house on this chilly morning. I’ve just cut a piece of casserole and it looks delicious.
Today I need to figure out when to take the M6 in for service. I also need to start doing some financial planning for 2021, well, at least for the eleven remaining months.
Hope you are well and happy today.
