Well, the broccoli cheddar soup turned out really well. The recipe I used I followed fairly to the letter, minus the carrots.
I’m still a fail whale at making grilled sandwiches, so MJ was a peach and made the grilled cheese sandwiches for Fen, himself, and I. It was really good.
We watched the silliest movie: Dark Shadows; the newer, Tim Burton produced one. I’d not seen it in a while, and it’s in my collection, so when MJ perked up we put it on.
Oh! Y’all. He brought me chocolate and cookies. And really damn good butter. What a dear, right? And bonus: Spock likes him.
In other news, work was really rough today. I don’t want to get into it, but suffice it to say I spent my lunch hour trying not to cry. Now, part of that could be chalked up to hormones as Shark Week reared its head, but still. Not a Good Day. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
Mentally, I don’t know how I’m doing. I’m still tired. I’m still in pain. I’m not actively suicidal, which is something at least. But I didn’t eat lunch again today. I really need to get better about that.
I had fun tonight. It was nice having MJ pitch in. And Fen did the dishes after dinner, which was super sweet of them!
I’m thinking about trying to save up for a Kindle Paperwhite on Cyber Monday or something like that? Maybe go the monthly payment route? I really do want to get back to reading. Do any of my readers have a Paperwhite? Can you tell me what you like or dislike about it?
I’m worried about my little sister, Ophelia. She’s having a rough go of it right now and I don’t know how best to help as she’s in Jersey and I’m in Florida. Maybe just reaching out? But I don’t want to bother her if she’s trying to rest or something, so I’m not sure.
Speaking of siblings, I spoke with Mal today. I called him on my way home from work. He, Bubbles, Baby Bubble, and Little Bee are doing well. Bubbles had a book club meeting, so I couldn’t talk to her, but I did get an adorable “bye” from Baby Bubble.
Anyway, it’s bedtime for this gal.
Take your meds, folks.
