I can’t remember Thursday. Yesterday. It’s 815 pm Friday. I am reheating tamales and Chile rellenos for our evening meal. Dinner. We just got back from downtown, having stopped at the Ale House Annex for food and bev on the way home. That would be beer and appetizer for the wife and a cider for me. Good times.
Hey, I just remembered, last night we made pizza for dinner. Cauliflower crust. Excellent. That’s all I remember of Thursday.
This morning no workout. It’s Friday. So I wasted my morning reading the paper and drinking coffee. Btw, I am going to make cold brew tomorrow. That shit is expensive at Starbucks and all other coffee places. I need to save money. Looks real easy to do. Should be a fine weekend project. Got nothing else to do except clean out the shed. What fun!
Well, went to coffee place on the way to work. In the race car. Spent 5$ on a cold brew. Told ya it was pricey.
Off to work. I have an appointment coming in at 1130. Am insurance guy who needs financial info on two of my clients. For two insurance policies. So we sat and shot the shot and filled out financial apps for the policies. Very large payoff policies. Which is why they talk to me. Sorta gives my life some meaning. Sort of.
He left. So I worked for awhile. And stres into space for awhile. Did payroll. Answered the phone too many times. Client showed up, unannounced, with questions on a notice he received from the FTB. Which I explained to him and helped him understand. It takes a lot to keep him in line.
Next runner up, client came by with signed forms for me to review and mail for him. He had also received a notice which wanted $14k in federal tax. Miscalculated by IRS but I fixed that. Mailed his forms.
My day had little left in it. Tried to finish a few things but ended up just leaving. Emily has called and she was stopping downtown for a drink and food. So I decided to join her. Work is boring anyhow.
So it’s a holiday weekend. Last weekend of summer and all. So, what do I see? Backed up traffic on the freeway. Lots of backed up traffic. So my usual quick drive turned into an hour. By the time I got to downtown Auburn, parking way up the hill, Emily was through her second beer and most of the appetizer she ordered. I ordered a cider, I don’t like beer. We chatted with other bar patrons and left for home about 15 minutes after I got there. Fine by me.
We went home. On the way I called an old friend to wish him happy birthday and that turned into a 30 minute phone call. Have not talked to him in quite awhile. Long time. I was sitting in the driveway on the car Bluetooth for a long time. He is coming to California next month and we will see him.
Em and I had tamales and Chile relleno for dinner. In front of the TV. Way better than going out. I always prefer a new at home.
We have been watching bad TV for an hour. I am now going to bed. Sorta early. Hurray for my team.
