I empathize with the messed up grocery order, Sahirrnee…well, sorta. Yesterday I had groceries delivered from Giant (a regional chain), and at lunchtime today I realized that I didn’t actually have enough tuna for the tuna casserole I’ve been looking forward to making. Safeway will let you pay extra for a same-day, 1-hour delivery window (with just a $30 minimum), so I put a small list together and had it delivered a little over an hour ago. Seems like no matter how many times I make sure I’ve marked “no substitutions” they always wind up giving me something I didn’t ask for/want. The surprises have been more annoying in the past, but at least this time the disruption was minimal: they gave me regular popsicles instead of the no-sugar-added ones I’d ordered. I really don’t need the sugar, but I’ll keep the popsicles. And the tuna casserole just came out of the oven! I’m letting it cool/set for a little while, but I can’t wait to dive in. I haven’t made it in forever, and this could well be the last time I ever have it (I’m not at all likely to make it again before my surgery).
Tomorrow I get to leave work early and have a toe removed…um, I mean a toenail. It was removed two years ago, but grew back just as fungified and it’s time for it to go again. This time, I’m having the doc kill it so it won’t grow back.
Thursday and Friday I’ll be in leadership training sessions for 4 hours each day. I’m hoping the time will pass quickly, so I can get to the weekend and Saturday night’s dinner-and-live-jazz-in DC plans.
After work on Thursday, all of the managers on my program will be getting together for happy hour: it’ll be the first time we’ve seen each other in person since before the pandemic started! I’m actually kind of looking forward to that. It helps that the happy hour venue is super close to my house.
Time for tuna casserole, and the latest episode of Celebrity IOU!
