Slumbering without benefit of an alarm clock for the first day of work in 2014 was not as restful as I would have wished. Due to conflicting schedules today, I drove my pickup truck to the train station instead of carpooling and was uncomfortable. Huffing and puffing the few hundred yards from the transit parking lot I caught the Coaster commuter train with minutes to spare; missing it would have given me an excuse to skip work until Monday. I’m just glad to be away from the left-over cookies, chocolates, zucchini bread, crackers and dip.
The weekend will be here in a couple days. And none too soon. I have a list of projects to start the year off. The truck now seems to have developed some fuel problem that thankfully held off until I was pulling into my driveway, A couple strings of outdoor lights need to be stored in the garage. A bedroom needs painting; odds n ends cluttering the house have an appointment with the Amvets truck now that 2014 is here.
