Tuesday night I left work after 6 pm. M made himself a Cuban sandwich. Ceil grilled chicken and served in an olive oil sauce with tomatoes and spaghetti noodles, with salad. She wanted to watch the Williams sisters square off at the US Open. Pregame was John McEnroe and his brother Patrick. Announcers were Chris Evert and ESPN’s Chris Fowler. After the first set I switched over to The Middle. Worked on the computer and packaged eBay while M worked on his project on the desktop. Washed the dishes and watched the debut of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
