You might have noticed, if you've been here in the past 24 hours, that I deleted my previous post. I just don't want this to be a negative place (especially when it comes to a bad day at work, we all have those), and I'm feeling better about things today.

That being said, it was a crazy day ... I was on the go from about 9 a.m. until about 8 p.m., it seemed like. I picked up a cookbook at AC Moore as a little present for being really good about spending money over the past two weeks. (I figure a $5 reward isn't too bad, eh?) It was called "Comfort Food" and had a gorgeous picture of macaroni and cheese on the cover. It required a trip to the grocery store, during which I had to call my mom to ask whether Roquefort was more like blue cheese or Swiss (I found it it was blue cheese, from a customer at the deli counter). Anyhow, it turned out really yummy, surprisingly smoky (from the Gruyere on top) :

mac n cheese!

It was really savory and smoky, with Gruyere cheese sprinkled on top. There's lots of leftovers, too. Score!

Back to the grind tomorrow. Only one day off work this week for me. On the upside:

1. It's a half-shift, not a whole one.
2. Im done with baby-sitting duty this week
3. I'm a day away from the end of dog-sitting duty (a week stretch!).
4. The weather has finally, finally, finally become more fall like. I had to wear a sweatshirt for a walk tonight. This weather thrills me to no end. I really want to make a cable scarf or something ... good thing I bought a cable needle today. =)

OK, my dog just woke herself up by sneezing (it was the cutest thing ever). I think it's time for me to go to bed, too.
