Okay, so here’s the five hundred word dash.
I’ve had a very good Saturday and I want to squeeze the last little bit of juice out of it before I have to collapse into bed, so I know you’ll forgive me if I rush along and make perhaps less sense than the typically tiny iota of reason that I provide here.
It was good because I cleaned like a madwoman for a while and got the massive wads of clothing in my room sorted a bit – winter clothes out, summer clothes put back away. There is a great deal of floor visible in my room. Now I have that second level cleaning that is so hard for me to do for some reason – the detail work, pulling books out of the bookshelf and organizing them so everything isn’t sideways and full of askew paperwork. But a major chunk is done, with lots of clothes set aside to give away that I don’t care about whatsover and were just bulk in my closet. The cleaning, too, was really physical, and given that I was at it for four hours or so, I feel like that I got something of a workout in. Even if the Pandora 80’s Cardio channel did not live up to the hype. Come On Eileen is not exactly going to get your heart pumping.
So I’m proud about that. Also proud that I did not eat terribly and I did not cave to hunger and make a bad decision and actually ate vegetables today which were fresh and delicious and filling along with some sugar-free teriyaki sauce. I added in some carrots because it’s been two weeks without them, so we’ll see if some carrot apocalypse will come down on my head as a result. Unfortunately, I’ve been so home-bound and stuck-in, cleaning and watching the Broncos fight it out and win over the Cowboys, that the grocery store trip I needed to make didn’t happen. So I’m telling myself I can just get some and put it on ice when I get to work. Or just have coffee, though that doesn’t exactly make me super happy and I think will lead me to gnawing feelings in my stomach and Monday stress + hunger typically leads me into bad places. So, we’ll do what we can to avoid that.
I have played some games in here – to distract me from all of this work that depresses me and interspersing the two actually has made me relatively productive. But I apparently killed the wrong rakshasa in Neverwinter Nights: Hordes of the Underdark and I’ve spent way too long trying to figure out how to get around that without having to go back to a way earlier save point and now I have the item code that should be a good workaround and that’s the reason I’m putting so much haste into today’s post.
Suffice to say, I am good. I feel like a very industrious Anna Bates, you know, before she fell in love with Mr. Bates. Just neutral good.
