Then I went shopping, which I've been meaning to do for *weeks*. Since I was out of a ton of stuff, I spent around $300. Ouch. And I try to be a good boy and use coupons and everything. I even deliberately picked up a few brands because I had some coupons - then I forgot to give them to the cashier. I remembered as I was walking out. Grumble.
Then I got home, unpacked, got out of my work clothes and called a friend... noticing my message light was blinking. It is good news, bad news from my landlord. The good news is indeed very good, and welcome - but in the short term it is fucking annoying. The little driveway/parking spot I have is getting paved! It has been VERY rutted, and turned into a mud pit when thawing this spring - the surface thawed, but the frost was still in the ground. Yucky. So cool, it is being paved.
Which means I can't park there for a week or so as they do the work then it cures. Of course, I'm parked there right now. I came home to find someone had laid a bed of gravel and such and packed it down. And I figured "Cool, the landlord had the parking area leveled out." So I parked to unload. Now I know that was just the base layer for the paving. And now I have to get dressed and go move my car - hopefully there is a place to park on the road close by.
So a couple of little annoyances tonight.
