I just posted this in the team named above but I wanted to post it here, too.
I just want all of you to know that I'm having a really bad week and I'm not normally like this. Normally, I'm a fairly happy person who eats reasonably well. But, this week...
I have rheumatoid arthritis and I've been very sore all week (it's been very damp here). And, my husband is working afternoons this week, which means I don't see him except for when I get up in the morning before work and then it's basically a hug and kiss and then on to my day while he sleeps before he has to go to work. And, at my work, they're negotiating a contract for us but the deadline for the negotiations to be finished is next week and I'm worried that I might have to go on strike, not that I want to or anything but because the membership voted in favour of strike and because I'm a member, that means I would have to go on strike, too. And, because it's a sister weekend this weekend with my sisters but I'm not going because I just didn't feel up to it and because after my husband worked afternoons all week, he told me yesterday that he was working tomorrow too and frankly, I was just depressed and stressed and sore and eating bad stuff makes me feel a little better.
But, tonight on the way home, I had to stop to pick up a prescription and I thought to myself, I should get myself a treat like a bag of chips or a chocolate bar so I perused the aisles of the drugstore looking for something that would be tasty but then I decided that instead I would pick up a pre-cooked skinless, BBQ chicken and take that home and I'd fry up some onions (which I don't usually eat because they give me gas but what the heck, hubby's at work so who cares) in cooking spray and little olive oil and I'd bake some frozen french fries and even if it's not the healthiest food in the world, it's better for me than the chips and/or chocolate I was thinking about getting so that's what I did. And, I cranked up the tunes and read my book and felt not quite so depressed. And, then my husband called from work and told me that his overtime for tomorrow had been cancelled and even though, I know that he was disappointed, I told him that I was glad because I missed him and that meant that we could hang together tomorrow and he agreed and said that was good, too and wanted to know what I wanted to do so we're probably going to see a movie and go to our local bookstore to spend some of the gift certificates that we got for Christmas. And, even though I'm still pretty sore, everything else seems a whole lot better.
And, next week will be better because he's on days.
