Lets see, where do I start?

I know, I'll start with last Wednesday! Lori came over after work and we went out for all-you-can-eat-snow-crab-legs. Dinner was great as always and we saw our new favorite bartender, Liz. We didn't stay like we usually do, but that was fine, Lori was staying with me the rest of the week, so that made up for it.

Thursday, what happened Thursday? Oh ya, we had pizza for dinner, snuggled and then watched the Olympics. How about that Michael Phelps? Then there is the women's gymnastics, women's beach volleyball, women's team volleyball, women's diving, women's track and field and any other women's events there are. How about those women, huh?

Friday Patchogue was holding it last shut-down-main-street street fair for the season. We met up with Lori's son, his girl friend and her three kids (the one's we baby sat for), Lori's daughter Beth and our friend Anne Marie and two of her kids. We all had a lot of fun! The first stop was the Brick House Brewery for a beer and then we walked around. I bought a few things here and there and had another beer or two. We said our goodbyes and then Lori, me, Anne Marie and two of her kids went back to Popei's for a snack, which is where Lori and I were on Wednesday.

Saturday Lori and I started the day as usual and then just hung out and stayed in bed on our laptops the rest of the day. We were suppoed to run a bunch of errands, but shit happens!

Sunday we spent the day doing a lot of running around. Wednesday Lori and a friend she works with are hosting a sex toy party at Lori's place and there were things to buy for that. I cooked dinner that night. BBQ'd brats, baked beans, fresh tomato salad, fresh corn on the cob and chips. Excellent if I do say so myself.

That brings me to today, Monday. I spent a good portion of the day running errands.
*First I went to Staples and made some copies of paper work I needed for my variance.
*Then I went to the bank to get some papers notarized.
*Then I went to town hall with all the paperwork to be told they couldn't accept it, because the notary didn't sign the papers, just stamped them.
*Then it was back to bank to get notary to sign papers.
*Then it was back to town hall where everything was in order, BUT they needed a $125 fee (no one ever told me that and it wasn't on anything I read)I gave the lady last of my money (Ewwwwwwwwww, just had enough!)
*Then I drove a 1/2 hour to the guy making my vanity top for the half bath. I dropped off the sink and two more that he was kind enough to offer to sell for me. marble guy and gave them the sinks (will call tomorrow with delivery date, but will be soon).
*Then finally back home!

Oh ya! The lady in the Zoning Appeals Board office told me that I would receive a letter in the mail with the date and time for my variance hearing. The hearing would be in about SIX FUCKING WEEKS!!!!! Yes, SIX FUCKING WEEKS!!!!!

No wonder people just do things without permits! FUCKING BURACRACY!!!!!!

You know that is exactly why people do things without permits. Ridiculous!!
Sounds like a nice time and you are just the best cook ever (at least by reading)!

Sounds like a pretty good week. Yeah, I did the entire remodel of my house in Michigan without permits. We still did all the electrical and heating stuff to code, but just took photos of everything in case they should ever come knocking.

Enjoy your six weeks of hurry-up-and-wait.
