Today was… a train wreck. I didn’t finish anything that I wanted to at work, barely got to touch my calls. I’m so frustrated. The system kept going down today and it just killed my ability to get things done.

Today has been a long day. I woke up, out of habit, at six a.m., as if to feed the dear Mister Spock. But I was able to go back to sleep for about ninety minutes, so I got another sleep cycle in.

I often make the joke that I am more “ish” than I am Jewish. It’s literally true, at least according to Ancestry.com’s results.
Anyway, how does that relate to a reading challenge? I’ll explain: one of my goals for 2021 is to read fifty two books this year. That breaks down to one a week…ish. I have a tendency to read in fits. So, it’s the -ish Challenge. A book a week-ish.

There’s always something a little jarring about finishing reading a book. Detaching one’s self from the fictional world and stepping back into the “real” world.

We had a jarred curry sauce over Morning Star Farms fake chicken tonight. Fen made it with some peas and carrots and served it over 90 second rice. It was really good. I added too much hot sauce and made my nose run though.
Speaking of hot sauce, I wore the first pair of Taco Bell socks today. They were great!
Work went…okay. There were two tubs of mail to process so it took me over two hours to scan everything in.
When I got home, though, I had a Christmas card waiting from both Papa Ben and Pop Tom as well as from my friend Savvy! She sent the cutest Grinch card and wrote a very sweet message inside.
I haven’t gotten any writing done, unfortunately. I was in too much pain after work to focus on writing. Or reading. Or crocheting for longer than ten minutes at a time. So it was a few episodes of Murder, She Wrote and a bowl of frosted mini wheats for dessert.
My brain is fried. I’m going to go read for a bit, if I can.
Take your meds, folks.
