Thai Dinner Tonight

January 23rd, 2013 at 08:03 am

I'm scheduled to meet my old boss for dinner tonight at a Thai restaurant which happens to be in the same building as the train station. It seemed like a good idea at the time we set it up, but I had one of those awful sleepless nights last night and I'm not sure how I'll be feeling at dinnertime. And of course it will mean walking home later at night in this cold weather. So while I look forward to seeing her, I am dreading other aspects of the evening.

I ordered a $50 gift card for Kohl's through MyPoints. I'll give it to my son for his birthday, which is two weeks away. I'm sure he needs new jeans or something, or maybe new shorts for his move to Florida? Anyway, I figured it was a good idea to get it through MyPoints so I can earn an extra 300 points.

I did laundry last night ($1.50). When I first went down, I saw that one machine was filled with wet clothes, one was filled with water, and the only free machine was the more expensive one. I only had three quarters in my pocket, so I moved the wet laundry to the top of one of the dryers. I am very diligent about moving my laundry once I start, but this person (I know her by her laundry basket)is always leaving her stuff for hours. So I didn't feel bad about moving it. I AM concerned about the machine filled with water. With only three machines, we really can't afford to have one out of commission. I was about to call maintenance, but then someone came and said they already had. So I hope it's taken care of soon. Since I am a laundry fiend.

I stopped at Walgreen's on the way home and bought a sympathy card for a co-worker ($3) some Mucinex D ($30) and deodorant ($2). I am hoping the Mucinex will start to clear this mucus in my throat and lungs; it's ridiculous how it's hanging on.

My walk to the station this morning was more comfortable than yesterday morning, and I didn't wear as many layers. It was 12 degrees -- downright balmy!

    I hope you enjoy a beautifully presented Thai dinner. Perhaps the chilies/spices will clear-up your throat in support of OTC meds. If you have a nice Dollar type store on your route, you could pick-up a few cards to have on hand for different life events. It's one of the 'best buys' along with holiday decor from these outlets.

    I usually have inexpensive cards on hand, but I was out of sympathy cards. I sprang for this one because the sentiment was particularly appropriate and I like this person very much. Generally, I pay about $1 for a card. But now that you mention it, I don't know where the dollar store is in my new neighborhood!

    Hope the dinner and the walk back go well.

    Is there a Dollar General near you? They have American Greetings cards (made in the USA) and are fairly reasonable and usually tasteful as well. I stocked up the other day.

    Wow. The closest Dollar General is in the city. That's not gonna happen!
