      Thanks DorothyMH sleep_twitch Trbrat75
      Today is a better day. Random hard days are such a bad surprise. Somehow it's almost worse bc there's less now so they surprise me. But I still just walked, picked up some wine to make a stew in next few days bc I randomly bought celery bc it was 1$.

        Celery is good and not too hard to use, for a soup, for a random stew, with rissotto...

          PetiteSheWolf I would not have thought of in risotto >.> I usually just use in stews, since my hubby is fkn picky abt soup so if I make that I have a whole pot to eat. I am thinking it will also get chopped into tuna salad. (That might be lunch, actually.)

          I'm not going outside today bc it's raining and fuck that noise >.>

          Did 2 miniworkouts w kettlebell today, trying to get back to actual strength work. 25lb bell

            Celery, carrots, and onions are the base for almost any italian dish... Ok that's an exaggerating but it's somehow true. You can use it for bolognese, goulash, anything with meat that cooks in some sauce, veggie soup, veggie burgers... And so on!

              I guess the biggest issue w celery is "things I like to cook/have other shit easily available for the husband will eat w out looking disappointed" LOL.

              Today I bribed myself to deal w some irs paperwork I didn't want to do with ice cream.

              Yesterday I made a fucking mess, that exemplifies to me what ennui/depression/anxiety has done to my brain lately. My phone wasn't charging yesterday morning when I plugged it in. I freaked out, ofc. Plug phone elsewhere, see that it is working at least. Check laptop (same power strip), see that it is on battery. Spend 45 mins fucking around (check outlet by moving a lamp, flick breakers (this matters later) to discern it is the power strip. It doesn't have a toggle/switch on it's face, so I assume it's broken/burnt out (which can happen, right?) steal the one off my desk for now, and spend $50 ordering another nice one. (This has my computer, hubby's computer, etc in it so I want a good surge protector + a lot of plugs, not the 10$ 4 plug one.) Discover that flicking breakers has fucked up my ps4, it says it wants reboot software on a usb. Ok. Fine. Order a 2nd thing from bestbuy and pay for same day delivery, bc god forbid I manage to find any of the 6+ usbs I KNOW are in my house. Get it. Put software on it. PS continues to be fucking stubborn, AND I find a way to boot it in safe mode and get software w out usb. So I could have started fixing like 9 hours earlier. Except nope, it is still all fucked up. Leave it for the night, thankfully, bc I was ready to literally take it apart bc it was saying storage error so I wanted to check connection on hard drive. (Did a factory reset this morning, and spent 3/4ths of the day re downloading ffxiv LOL.) My husband asks why I was fucking w beakers anyway. Fishes power strip out of recycling bin. Shows me the switch on the side. So, I spent 80$ and 15 hours total wasting time bc I didn't see a switch. This shit mood can die in a mother fucking fire.


              Went for a walk, did one set of Gridlock. I used to love this workout there is no way I can get through multiple sets atm... goals!

                    I'm sorry 'rin, I had to laugh. That's so much something that could happen to me too, and I can just see your husband's face as it probably was a mirror of my husband's... I'm sorry you wasted so much time, and I hope your day is better today!

                          And I'm glad I'm not alone in laughing at the absurdity of it Anek

                          My biggest "symptom" of depression is being overtired/out of spoons... I don't have energy to keep my mild, normally something I can use as an advantage instead of an issue, ADD in check. Which leads to scatterbrained shit LOL.

                          Today I met gym people at park, and we met the police. Bc aparently, altho we are all (including the trainer who brings tons of equip w her) welcome to use the space, and the fact we were gathered was not problematic bc distanced + not loud, the fact we pay the trainer makes it less ok. Whatever, he didn't make us scatter and next time we know to say it's just a group of friends and no $$.

                          Best bit of class was when I made an improvised pully machine out of 2 resistance bands, wrought iron fence, and 10lb body bar bc she neglected to tell me what to do quickly enough (she moves us around though "stations" for 1 min intervals and she was distracted modifying a station for someone else) and it got worked into rotation for everyone lol.

                            It's public space what do they care 🤷‍♀️

                              Gandhalfit I think it's "how dare anyone make money in public space and not pay city a fee" also some worry about city having liability if ppl get hurt (altho *this* trainer has a bitching insurance policy I bet not everyone trying to make a buck running a boot camp does).
