September 21, 2007: Oreo Day

I just realized that I never posted for Wednesday, September 19th.  Oh well.  I have no idea by now what happened then.  Nothing important, I am sure.  I went to work.  I ate dinner.  Yada yada yada.  You all know the drill.

Today is my work from home day this week.  I had to reschedule it from my usual Thursday because Oreo’s daycare providers are getting married tomorrow and they needed today off.  So Oreo is stuck at home with me today.  Yay!  Next week is going to be really tough for him though.  We aren’t sure what we are going to do about that.

It was a pretty busy day at work.  I didn’t get a chance to eat until almost two and I just ran across the street to Queen Pizza II and ran back and ate at my desk.  I did manage to do a little cleaning around the apartment, some dishes, some laundry and some cleaning out of the refridgerator.  But overall, not a lot of anything other than just sitting at me desk all day.

I ended up getting stuck working quite late – until after seven.  Dominica and I have a party to attend tonight and this made it very tough.  We didn’t manage to leave the apartment until almost eight by the time that I was able to get dressed and ready to go.

Tonight is a friend’s baby shower in Edison, New Jersey.  It takes about forty-five minutes to get down there at this time of night even though it isn’t very far away.  Getting through Newark to the interstate and then on to the Garden State Parkway and then all of the local roads in Edison really takes a while.

We had a good time at the baby shower.  It was not like traditional baby showers that we are used to where it is very uncomfortable for men to attend.  This was a totally coed and nothing weird or embarrassing baby shower with really awesome food from Moghul in Edison.  I haven’t had their food for months and boy was it good.  I have been telling Dominica about their food for a long time but she has never been able to get it before and she really enjoyed it.

We were exhausted by the time that we got home – around eleven.  Boy are we ever getting old.  It was straight off to bed for us.  I only barely get to sleep in tomorrow as I have to be online and working by eight.  I have a bit of work to do tomorrow so it is going to be a busy day.
