My last Blue Apron delivery came today.  That means there will be no more Blue Apron boxes to load stuff into before the big move.  I’m gonna have to start hunting them down at work and at the grocery store.



Stop:  Today I cancelled my Blue Apron subscription.  With my new work schedule, I’ll be traveling too much to cook the food sent every week.  I rarely followed the recipes, but I used the ingredients for my own dishes.  Before signing up for Blue Apron, I’d stopped cooking altogether, unless I was using the microwave.  With the new job, I’ll be spending most evenings on the road, eating in restaurants.

About four years ago, I stopped using a CPAP for a few reasons.  First, I was losing weight and my sleep apnea had gone away.  I’d been using the CPAP mainly to keep my ex-wife from complaining about my snoring, and at a point realized she was no longer sleeping with me, so what did it matter whether I snored?  Last, the CPAP mask and air filters were getting old and the place where I purchased CPAP supplies began requiring prescriptions for them.  Since I no longer had an active CPAP prescription, I couldn’t get new supplies.

Go:  I’ve gained weight over the last three years and I’m sure the apnea has returned, but I don’t want to take another sleep study just to confirm that.  Today I went on and found out I could buy supplies without a prescription.  So I did.  I bought a new mask and air filters.  They will be delivered by Tuesday.  As soon as I start using the CPAP again, I’m sure I’ll start sleeping better again.



Today I overheard my current manager tell someone an opening had been posted on the HR web page at work — in other words, he is now looking for my replacement.  Yesterday, my new manager told me I was definitely getting the job in Arizona.  I’m just getting impatient, wanting an offer letter from HR to make everything official, official.  This is all new to me, the first time in my life I’ve ever received a job just by asking for it.  I guess having worked as a field tech before for the same folks had a lot to do with it.  They already know what my work will be like, so I guess it’s a good thing my new manager didn’t feel the need for an interview.

Blue Apron arrived again today — used the box for CD’s and cassettes after relocating the food to the fridge.

I had a small pork “roast” and some carrots left over from my last Blue Apron box.  Last night I went to the grocery store and bought a potato, celery and an onion.  Threw them into the crock pot this morning and wa-lah!  12 hours later, my favorite meal, and leftovers.  Yeah, that’s right — not much to write about today.

WaterBoyJust added to Netflix — all right!  One of my favorite comedies, but it will have to wait until I finish watching The Grinder.

Got another Blue Apron box today.  Can’t wait to open it up and see what goodies I got!
