4:45 a.m. – Woke up to get ready to get to work by 6:30 a.m. Ahh, the special once a month board member meetings my company has.
5:45 a.m. – Exit Adams. Swung into McDonald’s and had me a McGriddle. Didn’t think I’d like the sweet pancake like substance with the salty sausage and egg since I don’t like mixing my syrupy pancake with other things, but surprisingly I do like this McGriddle crap.
6:15 a.m. – First one in the office.
6:30 a.m. – The rest of Investor Relations dept. (read: all girls) arrived. We packed up and headed a block over to set up the meeting at the California Club.
10:00 a.m. – We returned back to the office.
12:00 p.m. – I discovered that rosemary sourdough bread is something the devil would’ve squeezed out, and the cheddar wedge I wanted to eat with my apple slices was just starting to get moldy. So no real lunch for me.
2:15 p.m. – Since I stayed late yesterday, I’m off the clock 45 minutes earlier on an already early day.
3:00 p.m. – Got home. Changed. Took 2 suit jackets to get altered. Shopped for vitamins for mom at a few places. Got beef for St. Patty’s Guinness Stew. Grocery shopped. Ran back to the alteration place to retrieve my jackets as we realized $165 is too damn much.
6:00 p.m. – Brandon picked me up just as I returned to go get our taxes…which we owe the Feds HUGE. What I thought was my extra money I could put into savings is actually belong to the State of California. B & I stopped to get cheap-o dinner. After I finished that, I made the Guinness Stew. We’re having our friends Rhonda & Eric, and Big Eric over for St. Patty’s. I will not have time to cook for them fresh tomorrow so I made the stew tonight which will be reheated tomorrow.
9:00 p.m. – Stew was done. I watched most of the new West Wing.
10:00 p.m. – Went over the books of Boren Consulting.
11:00 p.m. – I’m going to go put the stew in the fridge and finally go to bed.
…longest day so far this year.
