Not sure how it is possible to be nit-picky and OCD about the cleanliness of 98% of the house, yet let my bedroom, closet, and bathroom look like an episode of "Hoarders". I finally snapped and started purging/cleaning my bathroom today. It has been hours and I'm only halfway done. How could I have let it get so bad? I have missed my tub so much! (I have a separate shower that is accessible).
The goal is to have the bathroom done tonight and the bedroom done tomorrow so I can come home to a pleasant space after surgery on Tuesday morning. I don't want to trip on crap trying to get into the bathroom!
The closet can wait until I have a couple of days off. It just might take that long (It's a closet/storage area the size of a small room).
Maybe after establishing order in these areas I will feel more motivated to work on ME.

I found out today that my knee pain from yesterday and the day before is another torn meniscus. Now I have MMT in BOTH knees! I was scheduled for surgery for the left one for the 20th. Now I don't know what the plan is, because I have to have one good leg for getting around after the surgery.
Saturday I was joking with my mom that I was going to write "NO!" on my good leg so they operated on the correct leg. Guess now I can write, "Take your pick," or, "whichever".
Just gonna go with the flow...

I am just going to complain for one paragraph. Then I will have it out, purged, and let the Universe deal with it.
Tuesday, on the way to vote, a deer rammed into the side of my car scaring the the bejesus out of me and almost caused me to slam into the ditch. I was pretty proud of my driving in that I maintained control and got it back on the road quickly without losing control. The sideview mirror is gone, both side doors are smooshed in (driver's door has a chest dent, back door has a huge butt dent), the roof has a big hoof dent in it, the back window can't roll down, and there was deer snot and fur all over the windows. I was unhurt. The next day, my fiance's car was hit by a random bouncing tire that came off a guy's van while the guy was driving. Luckily, my fiance's car was parked, and again, no one was hurt. But his car had to be taken in to the shop and he was thus carless today. I played chauffer for him to get to work this morning, and in the middle of the day, I left my job to pick him up and take him to his doctor's appt. After the appt, we were sitting at a stop sign waitng to turn left, and I was hit from behind by a guy probably texting. I see no other reason why he didn't see me. Again, no one was hurt. But now my bumper has cracked paint. My poor little vehicle has been through the wringer this week, and I am strangely calm about the whole thing. Irritated, but not to the point of fury or anger as I might have been in the past. I actually feel kind of blank. Maybe I'm in shock. Anyway, my car isn't worth poo in the BlueBook, so I won't be getting anything fixed since she still runs just fine. She may need an alternator soon, and I have to get the sideview mirror replaced ($300!!!!) but she's a fine gal who deserves some kudos for protecting me and mine. Oh, and I went through the drivethrough at BK before job #2 tonight to get a veggie sandwich, and when I got to work there were 2 doublecheeseburgers in the bag--but no veggie sandwich. The additional irony?--I don't eat beef. Sigh. Yes, I drove back and got the correct order.
I am skipping the 24-hour gym tonight, but I could do stairs or a workout video when I get home later. And I am sooooo hungry. I'm scared to eat, though. I might binge if I do. It would be great if I could eat some veggie soup and just go to bed. I *am* pretty tired. I feel as if my brain went on autopilot to protect me or something, and it just wants to sleep for awhile.

For the 2nd time this year, my car and I have had a run-in with a deer. I have been lucky that I have come through unharmed both times and have been spared the agony of actually finding the injured deer in pain or dead on the road. Both times, the deer has been nowhere to be found. I bawled like a baby anyway.
This second time, tonight, the deer slammed into my driver's side window/door. As if she were attacking my car like a ram or something. I know she wasn't. She was simply trying to get to the other side of the road and her timing was the worst ever in her life. When I texted this weird event to my friend, she asked me if I had pissed off the deer gods or something, that I would have had 2 run-ins on the same road, with the same car, in the same year.
The irony is that I don't eat meat (except fish), and I had just voted against the unlicensed "harvesting" of animals when I voted today. There seems to be a Karmic imbalance in this, IMHO.
I have yet to be t-boned by a fish. But maybe I shouldn't say that out loud.

Just tracked my calories for today.
You know when you come home, and your dog is sitting in the middle of the garbage-strewn kitchen with his head hanging, and his apologetic puppy eyes fixed on you, waiting for the inevitable, "Bad dog!"?
Guess who blindly wolfed her way through close to 3000 calories without batting an eyelash today?
Whipping through a chocolate brownie and an icy mocha like a dog tossing trash around the room.
And now I'm tired and just wanna go to bed. I get why dogs sleep all day.
