Secretly Monday

Apparently, this is secretly Monday.

I knew I was going to have to spend the evening emptying out the refrigerator, and wasn’t looking forward to it. What caught me completely off guard was coming home to discover that some jackass had gone off the road and destroyed the light at the end of our walk.

I Got the Power

At 5:30 this morning.

Got me evening all mapped out: listen to the game and clean out the fridge and freezer!

On the bright side, I’ll get rid of all those freeze dried veggies that have probably been buried in the back of the freezer for years.

Timing is Everything

Is it Murphy’s Law or some other for of karma that decided that the power outage (17 hours and counting) should occur on Trash day–i.e. my trash went out this morning, while I have a refrigerator/freezer full of food that may now be garbage.


There’s your warning. Avoid my driveway for the next week, cuz that’s where the trash can is.

For the past three or four years, I’ve been trying to go to the gym five days a week to walk and do weight training. Since my depression kicked in this summer, it’s been far more off than on, and for the past three weeks, I haven’t gone to the gym at all. Now I’m still trying to walk at least 20 minutes at lunch, and I do walk around a lot during the day, but this is a pretty serious decrease in exercise.

Yesterday, the nurse came by to give us physicals so we can get life insurance.

I’ve lost 3 1/2 pounds since the last time I was at the gym (which puts me 1.2 pounds away from my goal weight), my blood pressure was 98 over 60, and my pulse rate was relatively (for me) low.

This is ridiculous. I don’t need reinforcement for NOT going to the gym.

However, I’m still going to get my butt in gear and start going back, because exercise twice a day helps a good deal in fighting my depression.

But still. Although I’m glad that I’m so healthy, that wasn’t the kind of reinforcement I needed.

Really Eerie

(I tried to figure out how to put more “e” sounds in that title, but that was as good as I could come up with on short notice.)

Went to check the weather, and noticed a strange weather pattern around Pittsburgh. When I went to look at the animated regional radar, it looked even more creepy.
