Home from the Office!

Hey, guess what? We're home from work! Yes, it's a quarter past midnight...

I guess I'm going to make a habit of making entries after midnight, as I did the same thing Monday night (early Tuesday). To me this is still Tuesday, even though it's 'officially' Wednesday. (If that makes sense.)

We went to Salem first thing this morning. It was amusing that we'd been originally told the bill would be up at 10:00 a.m. Then we were told we needed to be there by 8:30 a.m. So guess what time it finally happened today? If you guessed 10:00 a.m. then you win.

Poor Marilyn mistressmarilyn! That many hours out of the office where she has stacks of work to do! But it was something we needed to do -- and I'm really glad that sister Sue wanted go.

She and I drove down together and met up with the group from the office. Sue served in the Oregon State House of Representatives in the 1980's, so she knows the whole routine forwards and backwards and could tell all of us exactly what was going on.

By the way, we have one of the most lovely Capitol buildings in the country. It's lovely! It was a delight to be there. And it was the second sunny day in a row, with lovely blue skies.

I totally forgot to mention that it was 80° yesterday! Beautiful. I didn't have time to enjoy the nice weather, but it was lovely, even so...

Got home today and worked on the PowerPoint presentation some more. I had to actually lie down with a headache today. I suspect it was a constipation headache. But it might have been from eye strain. My eyes have been driving me nuts lately...

Tom scores again!

Some time today he brought by another big box of Cheetos!!! I was out, so the timing was perfect. (Seriously.)

That reminds me -- Marilyn's bf Ed bought her a star! She got two framed piece that tell about it. One is a star chart that shows where her star is located and the other looks like an art piece. (I took photos but didn't even look at them all that closely, to be honest. We were pretty busy...

He named her star Marilyn's World, which I think is very cool. Marilyn says he made light of it, but I suspect it cost him some $$$, frankly. A lovely gesture, anyway -- and cool gift.

We don't need to be at work until 8:30 a.m. in the morning, so we're planning to have coffee and maybe some ice cream before bed. And I thought I'd dash off this entry. (smile)

I'd like to be posting more, so I could keep track of what we're up to, but there never seems to be time. (sigh) I've been trying to be better the last few days, but...

Well, I'm ready for coffee, believe me. And maybe some of the brownies I got for dessert for the guys Monday night. (heh)
