As usual, I worked Wednesday before T-day, we had our feast at home, though we were expecting 15 guests only a few showed up; I think it's safe to say we won't be buying groceries for some time!
I went to work as usual on Friday. I was preparing the turkey, and couldn't find the doggone giblets bag. Got the neck out--a big one--but try as I might, no giblet bag. So I thought maybe it didn't get one--I used to work in manufacturing and know sometimes things like that happen--and as I was carving the turkey, I was getting the wishbone off for my roomie Diane and guess what popped out of the neck cavity! Yep, bag of giblets!
At least we decided not to stuff the turkey, so nobody got food poisoning. The cats got the neck and giblets after they were cooked, of course. Things went very well, actually.
The vacuum cleaner at work is on the fritz (Dyson), and the Sebo--my preferred vacuum--is out of bags. So I finished at 2:45 p.m. Wednesday and at 3 p.m. Friday. Our cleaning supplies provider hasn't been around in a month; they used to come weekly/semi-monthly. The bag holding dirty cleaning cloths and mopheads must be gross at the bottom. One of the cleaning chemicals doesn't have a lid over it, and it dried out. I added water to it and stirred, but I don't think it's blended to the right solution strength. I've been using paper towels to clean with, and Friday I refilled a couple of paper towel and toilet paper dispensers, then distributed what I had left--8 rolls of t.p. and 4 of paper towels--among the three indoor bathrooms. I've told Narrah about it, as well as Danielle, and they say they will get ahold of Cintas, but obviously there's the holiday so hopefully they will get their stuff picked up and replenish everything soon.
Thursday night as I went to take my shower, I noticed my deodorant was missing. Last night, I needed to get my nail kit to trim a broken nail, and my nail kit was missing from my dresser drawer! Luckily, I had a new stick of deodorant, so I'm using that, but still--! They say it's the ghost in the house. What? I thought I got rid of that thing--now I'll have to re-anoint the house!
Why do these things always happen to me?
