Not really that chaotic a post today. Just life as we now know it.
I'm dropping into some kind of stasis where I just get over it. Music too loud? Get over it. Noise at night? Get over it. News all bad and not getting better? Get over it. My little corner of the world not as tidy as it used to be? Get over it. Out of milk? Get over it.
Okay, that last one is something I can do something about. Kinda. I have to go out today and get cigarettes* so since I'm already breaking self-isolation protocols, I'll see what the Dollar General has available for milk and eggs and other things we're getting low on already. Food stores purchased for two now stretching to feed three and all that.
The Night Owl made dinner the other night. Chicken alfredo. It was really good. And all I could think of afterward was how the meal had depleted my cheese stores. Yesterday, she asked if she could make herself an egg for breakfast and I was all like no. Maybe if I find eggs at the store today, she can have one for breakfast tomorrow.
I lost seven pounds last month.
Recently, I read an article wherein I learned this isn't stress. It's anxiety. Cool. Always good to have the right name for the thing.
Right now, we have extra channels on Direct TV. From the Premium line up when we only have Choice. I've been watching a lot of DIY and Oxygen and Destination. They're also throwing us bones of pay movie channels here and there, but there's never anything to watch on those. Still, nice to have other options.
And that's about it for now. This weekend, I'll do the usual Saturday Reading Wrap-up and Sunday Update posts. We'll see what the weekend brings and whether I do another Diary post on Monday.
Meanwhile, how's the chaos treating you lately?
* Don't go there. Seriously. Quitting is not an option. The safety of mankind depends on my continuing to smoke.
