I am in a foul mood tonight for some reason. Have been since late this afternoon. Figured if I fixed anything for supper I'd end up eating all of it and then some. Fortunately, I had gotten out a package of turkey brats that I found in the freezer, and I have some cooked veggie dishes left over from last summer in the inside freezer. A couple of brats and some green beans with onions and parsley and tomatoes and other stuff I don't remember at the moment were filling enough that I'm not likely to scarf down everything in sight. At least, not as long as I make sure there's nothing out where I can see it.
A lovely bike ride today and reasonably good eating.
Tomorrow I go off to a "men's retreat" (Mankind Project). Last year I was a guest and didn't have any say on food....consequently starved for three days since I refused to eat granola and trail mix. Last year it was also right after my first colonoscopy, so I really was already starving for several days when I got there. This year I am helping staff it and can bring my own food....I will. Wish me luck.

Having a so-so day at work. It seems that whether I work hard or slack off I'm still not satisfied. When I work hard I wanna whine about how hard I'm working and when I'm slacking I feel guilty and think I should be working harder!
Today? Somewhere in the middle. So. So-so. Meh.
Hopefully the evening will be better.

Lucy its not a happy day here. I have been paying bills and now I have to go pay car insurance and that one is a big one and for only 6 months(teenage boy). oh well its something I have to have I am just happy I have the money to pay it.
Its been raining here today and looks like it will again any time.
Happy Hump Day, y'all... I'm puttering through a bunch of unrelated small tasks on my desk and watching the sun struggle to break through the clouds. One of our international clients is visiting today (the rude, unethical one who doesn't pay his bills...) and my boss is not a happy man (and he's usually very happy). I hope he tells the guy to take his business elsewhere, but they are out visiting the fields so I don't hear screaming! We'll see how it goes...
I am finally realizing how important a good night's sleep is to my mental and physical health. I need to make going to bed by 10:00 a much higher priority - I'm sleeping really well, but starting at 11:00 or 11:30 is just not giving me long enough. I'm sluggish and sorta blue today and I'm pretty sure that's a side effect from staying up too late.

I've defrosted one freezer and will probably do the other one this afternoon. I hadn't planned to, but once I started organizing it, it just made sense to go ahead and defrost it, too. And it's a reasonably cool day, which is a bonus! AND I found some stuff I had forgotten about. Lots of stuff.
Took a trip to a new grocery store yesterday as their ground beef was under two dollars a pound. Worth the trip. This store tends to have the lowest prices, so I will be shopping there more. Another cool and sunny day. Just perfect. Will take a few walks with James and meet some friends at the park too.
