I should know better than to go grocery shopping without my list. I should really turn around and leave the second I realize I don't have it because no matter how hard I try, I will not remember what was on it. I will get home with no chicken and no onions but with Pepperidge Farm cookies because they were on sale. They're damn good cookies, but they just don't work as well in stir-fry as you'd think. So now I have to face the grocery gauntlet again in order to cook dinner. Aargh! I'm extra bummed about it because I made up my meal plan in advance and everything. I've been slacking on that lately and it's never good. That's how you end up at Pizza Hut crying into your pitcher of soda.
It's been a really long day. A long week. I'm so glad it's over. I'm looking forward to the weekend so I can go for a run, or atleast a walk. It's officially too dark to run before work and after work. Only three more dark ass months to go! It really does creep up on you, the shortening of the days. I don't mind so much when it's warm out, but when it's cold and dark it's just depressing. Matt has this lamp that's supposed to generate happy sunshine in your living room. We always have it on, it's great for facials if nothing else. Not that staring at the dirt in your pores is that great for the morale. I think it's time for a make your own fun weekend. Maybe I'll hide the magnifying mirror and the scale and put it all aside until Monday. And I'll do Pilates while I watch Pride and Prejudice. I spent my evening re-arranging my living room so I can watch the computer and the tv at the same time. I'm sure it defeats the point of Pilates to do it while watching Colin Firth's dive into the pond strip show but it's better than sitting still and breathing heavy.
