writing makes me feel better. I'm in quite a bad mood otherwise, but still need to carry on with the day, you know?
I am sort of proud of myself lately for a few things anyway.
1. I'm glad that I put the garden to bed properly this year. In the past, I was lazy and then it was too late/too cold, etc. I got them weeded and mulched. I planted the garlic. And I already have my plan set up for seed ordering in late winter and what I'm planting where in the spring.
2. I'm glad that I've done enough Thanksgiving meals before that it doesn't stress me out anymore. Although, every time I go to buy all of the food, I feel like I am playing house. It doesn't seem like I should be old enough to be doing a Thanksgiving meal, but yet, here I am.
3. I am glad that we are caught up on our bills. Money can be so stressful, and I am approaching the end of my latest contract and I have nothing yet lined up for December, and that is REALLY stressing me out, but if we were behind on bills, that would be even worse. We have enough in reserves that we can probably make it through December too, so it buys a little time.
Well, not much on my plate besides work today. I slept in today because of that bad mood, but I'm up now and as soon as I'm done writing this post, I'll start in on my "real" work. Jelly Bean needs to go to swim team practice, and I need to make a schedule for cooking for tomorrow. I don't want to leave all the cooking for Thursday. I'll probably do the potatoes and a couple of the pies tomorrow.
