Erin and I went out to dinner with some friends. We had planned to see a movie as well, but timing didn’t quite work out so we just wandered around the streets of Glendale.
In our wanderings we happened upon a place called Bearded Papa’s at the Americana on Brand and they were serving cream puffs with your choice of filling. Erin and I shared a dark chocolate dipped puff filled with vanilla ice cream. It was amazing.
For those who know of my ongoing saga with Erin’s car, which hasn’t been operational for over a year, there is renewed hope in a possible solution. Erin’s father, cousin, and I took apart the upper intake manifold and throttle body this rainy Saturday morning and discovered what seemed to be a leak between the two. It is now our theory that this is the cause of our troubles. We’re going to see if we can have the throttle body resurfaced, and if not we’re just going to have to suck it up and purchase a new one. At this point, I don’t care. I’m just ready for it to be fixed.
After a productive morning I spent the rest of the day and afternoon eating, sleeping ans watching TV. It was great, especially with the drizzle and cloudiness going on outside.
Sunday was consumed with normal church activities, lunch, house cleaning and small group at our home. Since Saturday was largely a day of rest, it was good to get some stuff done on Sunday.
Today is destined to be a long long day. I have been out of the office at a training session for the last three work days and a ton of work has piled up on my desk. It seems that no matter how much you try to have everything taken care of while you are out, there’s still a ton to do when you get back.
In addition to having to play catch up, I have a meeting to attend which was rescheduled, unexpectedly, to tonight. So, I’ll definitely be here until at least 8 PM.
Oh, and to top it all off, I just heard our facilities manger on the phone explaining that the fans on our ac aren’t working. It’s going to be a long day.
