Fifteen and a half hours later...

Pin It "God will never give you more than you can bear." Yes, I suppose not, because I had just about all I could bear these past couple days. I had been upset I was only getting 24 hours this week at work, but after getting the strongest taste of ATL traffic yet, I came home and told Brice God knew what he was doing. Monday night's commute was fairly normal, but I was late clocking in last night (I'm usually in the break room at 1820/6:20 to clock in at 1840) at around 1905 or so. I've become very accustomed to being so early, so I hated being late like that. When I left this morning, there had been a fatal crash on 85 south, but I don't know how much it had to do with 75 south as far as being an alternate. There was a six car crash on 75 and the first seven exits on the interstate took me an hour. I usually get home around 8:00--this morning I was turning off the engine at 8:59.

The foot is doing fine for those who are wondering (Mom), but it's still more difficult to stand and walk on that one for long periods of time and I'm favoring the other. A little swollen too, but I'll spend some time with some ice tonight and tomorrow.

Brice went to a master's presentation on Monday night by one of the guys in his lab. They all went out to celebrate at P. F. Chang's for dinner and got chocolate cake for dessert.

We've both been enjoying our first co-attempt at making chili over the past couple of days. It wasn't perfect, but it was still really good. The next pot should be over the top.

We finally got our small group assignment for the marrieds group we joined (party Saturday night). They put all the new couples in one group together and we're all newlyweds, several from this summer, just like us. We volunteered to be the group leaders, so hopefully we'll set up some type of event soon.

Tonight we're going to go shopping for our Operation Christmas Child box. Tomorrow I'll be making mashed potatoes for our Thanksgiving this weekend. We're really looking forward to getting back to Concord and celebrating with Brian and the rest of the family this weekend.
