"Lake Wheeler Tour Extended" ride...

Robert and I woke up at 5:30AM to the "alarm clock" at the boys next door's house. Evidently, they are not there, and the bass on the stereo that acts as their alarm vibrates through my walls for an hour-and-a-half.

We got up at a little after six, and had breakfast. I typed up a letter about this constant inconsideration, and put it on their door.

When I returned home, Robert was still there, and had cleaned my house. It smelled immaculate (like Pinesol) when I walked in. What a thoughtful, beautiful man.

We had a little snack of nachos, melted cheese, salsa, and sour cream, and then later on, ran out to get some slaw and either potato salad or one other thing to go with the dogs. We went to the Food Lion on Western Blvd., and had a little incident in the parking lot with a man begging for money, presumably to "go back to Rex Hospital, where his wife and a friend were stranded, and for all of them to catch a bus back to Fayetteville." He wanted enough bus fare for all of them, at "only $9.95 a piece."

We bought potato salad, hot dog buns, and a few other things at the store. We rode through the KFC drive-thru afterward, and bought a side of coleslaw.

Later in the evening, I did my TCW minutes from the April meeting (felt great about having those done so early in the month!), and then worked on a mock-up of results from my diversity survey to show at the run-thru tomorrow with the managers.

We did crossword puzzles before bed, and MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMed.
