    Rainbow Dragon produce science projects make me maddest. I am glad I finally trained myself to buy frozen if I wasn't sure if a thing was extra or not. but ya. Thanks Gandhalfit and DorothyMH I am glad I'm not the only one /sigh

    Today's useful thing was editing, and my "left the house" was bribing myself w coffee.
    Did my fun circuit + builder w 8 lbs.

    Habits:
    LEAVE FUCKING HOUSE* 4/4
    Composed outfit (not yesterday's) 4/4
    Some useful task before noon 4/4

    Current streak 209

    I was in the habit of searching our refrigerator for science experiments every week on garbage day. My mother refuses to actually check what produce we already have in stock before going shopping. She was always buying stuff we already had--perfectly good, often expensive stuff that ended up going bad just because we had too much of it. This year has been a bit better since I am the only person who has done the shopping for the past ten months. Even so, when I ask my mother for her items for the shopping list, she still has a habit of writing down everything she might possibly want instead of just the items she has a plan to actually eat that week. At least I can check myself now to see which of the items on her list are things we've already got!

    Good vibes for your job hunt, 'rin! May a recruiter for your dream job see your worth soon!

    That post cracked me up. I was forever cleaning out science experiments form our downstairs fridge when my husb’s son & d-i-l lived here. They would buy stuff, “intending to make food,” let it rot, it would start reeking, then *I* would find it while I was getting a med of mine from the drawer in that fridge. Ugh. Same with my daughter when I went to visit. She’d say “I don’t know how to tell if somethings gone bad!” To which I would say “the green fuzz growing on it? It’s a good indicator!”😤🤣. But, I do hear ya about the cheaper things being a bad bet for taste or lasting. Makes paying a little more....sorta worth it

    Oh I don't like cleaning up "science projects" either. My sympathies.

    thanks daejamurrachan and Gandhalfit (and huzzah, tagging wants to work today). I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks this is a good idea. I have a consultation on the phone today or tomorrow w resume ppl.

    Did another editing read through and checked in w my cover artist yesterday. I think I will start next story(s) and plan for a tight release schedule.

    Today's useful thing was to clean "science projects" from fridge. I am unamused w myself w/r/t food waste. Mostly of shit I bought "to save money". Like....Whyfuck did I buy store brand deli turkey a 2nd time? I already knew from the 1st time, months ago, that it was basically inedible (cats don't even want). But no, it was 3$/lb cheaper so instead of spending 8$ on nice turkey to have sammiches I spent 5$ to throw in trash once it got too slimy to even pretend I might eat. Or fucking grapes that were sad looking when I bought them and started rotting 2 days later but hey they were 88 cents a pound! I need to stop w that shit. If I really am that broke, I have enough spices to make rly nice beans and rice. I do not need to buy generic garbage and bad produce in the meantime wtf.

    Went for a 40 min walk, might do yoga later.

    That workout sure looks fun times five.
    Good luck with the job, I also paid someone a while ago to fix my resume up and it does pay off.

    i am with you gurl!! i figured a long time ago that the ROI for paying for a resume update paid off in less frustration, better looking/sounding update, and mo'money. resume writing is not my thing.
