The last half of yesterday was bad. First world bad but bad. It got hotter and humider in here and I was trying to figure out two different computer problems - one of which was a total fail. And I got sleepy again and took a nap. I woke up with an extreme case of cranky. While I was asleep Walgreens called and left a message that they had to have my permission to refill a prescription - calling them back was a royal pain in the ass - especially since I was pissed off already. My Amazon package guaranteed to arrive yesterday will be here on Tuesday - 6 day Prime shipping - UGH.  The Mariners played their very best pitcher (one of the best pitchers in baseball today) and he played one of the worst games of his career. And then instead of my going to sleep instantly, it took me about an hour.

I am very done with yesterday.

Today is a new day and it will be better OR ELSE.

The egg muffins I made yesterday are the best ever. I lined the muffin tins with a piece of bacon. I buy cooked bacon from Costco. I used that. Just out of the freezer.  The result is really eggy and a little bacony and ... a perfect little breakfast. Yeah!!  I punted with the amounts but here's kind of what I did:

11 eggs (one was cracked or I would have used 12)
1/4th cup of half and half
1/2 cup of Bisquick
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
1 t+ cayenne

Liberally spray muffin tin with butter Pam. Line each opening with a strip of bacon and fill with mixture. 40 minutes at 3:50. Let cool for a half hour. Makes 12.  I keep them in the fridge (I freeze half) and pull out one on the morning and nuke it for about 45 seconds. Perfect.

Today is the last day of 8:30 Saturday swim. Next Saturday, they will be moving it to 9. Not my choice but could be worse. The next closest pool has lap swimming at 8 so, if I need earlier on Saturdays, I could whip down there for my swim.

I did find out last week, chatting up the lifeguards, that in the next few months, the City will be doing work on the water systems and, particularly, the main pipe in the middle of the road in front. Access to the pool will be a mess for a while and they will actually have to close the pool for a bit - maybe a short bit. The engineers who dropped into the pool to check on stuff said it would be January-ish.  The pool manager who has been through this before said that they will be lucky to get notice a day or two ahead. I'm glad that I hear this news so that if/when it happens it won't be a shock.

After swim today, I will be hustling my fanny home. In addition to regular traffic issues and road work in various places around here, there is a whole lotta shit going on in town that is causing issues and... there is a soccer game across the street at 1 and a baseball game down the block at 6.  I will be getting the car in its spot and leaving it there.
