And so, another work week begins, the last one I will have to work 40 hours. I took a vacation day next week so I'm only in for 32. After that, 3 day work weeks should become my norm.
Forecasters are predicting a high in the low 80's (F) today. Accuweather says that from now on the temps are going to drop into what is considered the average range for fall: nights in the 50's (F) and days in the low to mid 70's (F). This is fine. What needs to happen is the rain needs to stop. Tomorrow again the fore forecast is for showers, on and off, and on and off. Damn.
One of the things I've done in prepping for retirement, is create a spreadsheet (before retail I was in accounting) detailing income / expenses. Today I'm going to set up a separate page detail my subscriptions. This will be interesting. One of the things we cable cutters like to tell ourselves is that this is a way to save money. Today I'm going to find out just how much I'm spending. The nice thing about subscriptions, is that they're easy to cancel.
One of the Specialists I work with is from Kurdistan. Every 2 years she goes home for a few months. This time she brought back sweets for the department. Delicious. Addictive. Pistachios and walnuts in just about everything. Kurdish baklava is different from Greek baklava, but just as heavenly. We rarely get traditional food that hasn't been Americanized. Believe me, this was a real treat!
