…unless you’ve got POWER!

Today was pretty exhausting. Lemme tell ya ’bout it.

I was at Oakland again for testing until lunch. I had to run around the cafeteria quite a bit to work on a phone issue, so Miss Donna offered me lunch that I took home for later. I took off after lunch so Summer and I could go to Conway and get some things from Sam’s for her car show this weekend. We stopped at Chipotle for lunch first, then hit the Club.

I don’t know how we did it, but we managed to fit several hundred various drinks, chips, and buns into the back two thirds of the Murano. It took us two trips through the store and checkout line to get everything because I wasn’t sure exactly how much we could fit in there. It went better than I expected, but we left some things for purchase back home. After we finished shopping, we went across town to Marble Slab for some ice cream it was super melty because the Slab wasn’t frozen properly but it tasted good all the same.

When we finally got back home, I dropped Summer off at her car that was at the shop for an AC check and went to the junior high to unload. The girls met me there and actually got everything unloaded by the time I returned the keys I borrowed from across the building.

From there I went home and got ready to meet Hope at Front Street for her birthday. She said most of her friends bailed, so I couldn’t let myself be one of them. It was nice to catch up a bit, and I made it out for under 10 bucks.

I finally got home and walked in to a strobe light in the living room. Most of my power was out, both to ceiling lights and outlets. Some of them were supplying a little power so I could see filament burning, but they weren’t bright enough to produce any light. The outside breaker blew again too, so my air conditioning was completely out. Luckily it was cool enough outside to just open some windows around the house. The refrigerator still had power as well, so I can at least get some sleep before dealing with it tomorrow.

I saw a guy wearing a t-shirt that said “never yield” let another guy pass by him. I wonder if he appreciated the irony.
