I have a temp job for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. The thing is, it's in a place that is very difficult for me to get to. To get there by public transportation, I'd have to take 2 different subway lines and 2 different buses. Doesn't sound good. Didn't realize it was that bad when I said yes. I was only expected 2 subway lines and 1 bus. I asked if they have parking there. I think traffic may be better to deal with. Though, I'm not sure. I guess it's just 3 days and whatever. Is $12/hr worth that? I'll just bring my shuffle and a book and whatever. I just hope it doesn't take more than an hour.
The beach was lovely yesterday. We actually ended up going to a small island (sorta) community and walking around. I say sorta because there is a big causeway with a beach along it that lets you drive there. It originally was an island, but it isn't, really, anymore. We sat on a rocky beach and talked about all sorts of things. The weather was warm -- but not too warm, and the views there are beautiful. It was a good way to spend the day.
Then I had dinner with my family. We started with the traditional apples and honey to bring in the sweet new year. If you've never tried dipping apples in honey, I definitely recommend it. Especially nice, tart apples. It's great. For dessert I made a lovely chocolate mousse and the piece de resistance, a lime-white chocolate cheesecake with oreo crust. It rocked. I was so pleased with myself.
We aren't planning on doing much this weekend. It's a big sports weekend with the Yankees in town and the Pats game. Yeah, yeah, I know about the cheating and the huge fine and the scandal. Pretty lame. But they're still my team. And T voluntarily came to me and said we should do some cleaning and organizing this weekend. I'm still picking my jaw up off of the ground, but hopefully we can organize a couple of rooms.
Today I simply have to clean the kitchen. It's terrible. All the dishes from my baking are lying around everywhere. I may even wash the floor! (We have the Scooba robot that does it for us, but it's still something.) Then tonight we'll grill and watch the Sox hopefully beat the Yanks.
