I've been in training for the new job for over a week now. Nothing but me getting lost, struggling to stay away in a hot classroom and running home to go back to sleep. Two days ago I got the best surprise though! Gerald and his mom Sam came to NY! They came to be with family for the holidays but I got squeezed in! I must say that when Gerald told me to meet him I was in tears. He tried to surprise me by telling me he had set up a tour for me with someone in his family. He gave it away when he told her to say hi to me, it was his mom. LOL I put two and 2 together.
We met up after my training was over and they treated me to dinner. I love to eat! I was all smiles all the way back home. Yesterday morning I had to take another test for work but I managed to squeeze in a breakfast with them first. This was what I really needed. I didn't realize how starved for family I was.
Today is Thanksgiving and I'm cooking for myself and watching everyone on Facebook post food and family. I did good as far as my meal is concerned. I made apple potato salad, potato soufflé, asparagus with mushrooms and garlic cloves, corn on the cob and reheated baked lemon pepper chicken. It was good. Would have tasted better with a side of company. Ahkeem my roommate was in and out but headed to be with his people. The landlady Sonya had been cooking all night and has he family over. The only reason I even saw her today was because she stored food in our fridge and because our shower was leaking into her bathroom. LOL. How can she be irritated at Us? How were we to know that if the sliding doors were on the wrong side she would get rained on? Oh well. Once it was fixed she offered to bring me a plate. I don't trust it. That was an hour ago so I don't think she meant it anyway. This is really a silent night.
I should have let Ahkeem lend me his TV like he asked when he first moved in. I could go out see the lights that I'm sure are up but I'm in no mood yo battle crowds and cold weather. I'm too full and dehydrated to cry. Today, I don't want to be alone.
