The geese were at the end of my street today blocking my way to work. They have taken to living at our neighborhood pond and they certainly think they own all land. Not afraid of cars at all.
I'm once again a member of the USA Today Ad Panel. We rank the Super Bowl ads. Anyone can sign up to be a member. I like having my voice heard. Not a lot of people join so I actually feel like I'm a part of something.
So I'm one of those people who watch the game for the commercials only. That's ok...I also watch the puppy bowl on Animal Planet to watch the cute puppies.
We had three straight days of record highs this week while the northeast was getting snow. I didn't feel a bit sorry for that.
The last two times I've filled my car up it has been $18. Gas prices last week were $1.65. Living in a state that is dependent on oil and gas prices, we've had huge announcements of layoffs because of the lower prices. They've already warned us that the state budgets may need to be cut. And tax revenue is down significantly.
We tried two new recipes this week. One was definitely a keeper and we will make again soon. Basil Pesto Chicken only had a few ingredients and super simple to make. The other was a frittata recipe that tasted ok but nothing special. So out goes that recipe.
My hectic work week finished with all the stress yesterday. Got all the proposals done and my last progress report turned in this morning. Now I can concentrate on all my regular job duties. It felt so nice to go home last night and be able to turn my mind off of work. I slept much better.
