The end of the shutdown should make me feel a lot more relieved but I suspect that was just one battle, the war is far from over.
I was having a lot of trouble forcing myself out of bed to even check my favorite blog (welcometodisabledvale
on Tumblr, where I can read stories about Carlos having an anxiety disorder and other wonderful bits of representation). So I struggled and forced myself to change out the litterbox and
go to 7-11. They didn't have any of the egg salad sandwiches I love but Coke was still on sale, they had that new Arizona Blueberry Creme Soda that is pretty good and inexpensive, and I got a loaf of bread so I can have toast with that lovely ginger marmalade from my Amazon birthday spree. Sadly no frozen waffles or I would have gotten them for the maple syrup from the same birthday spree. But I need to finish eating that pizza before it goes bad anyway, not just tempt myself with favorites.
