mood - this sucks: sandy_s

Yucky Monday

Today was just a Monday, all the way around.

I tried a new recipe for dinner - a rice/lentil dish with middle eastern seasonings - and it just did not work for me. The family enjoyed it, but I thought it lacked any kind of texture or real flavor, and I wasn't about to drown it in yogurt sauce just to get it.

I had to call and cancel a subscription service that I've had for almost eight years because the service part has declined drastically over the past few months and I was literally getting nothing for the money I spent each month. I almost ended up talking myself out if while I was on the phone with the rep. She made me feel so guilty about it all that I actually apologized to her when it was all done. Right before she hung up on me. Yuck. But at least it's done.

I had a package arrive that had a gel pack inside it that exploded during transit. So I had to spend almost half an hour cleaning it all off before I could even take it inside the house.

I tried to get some writing done, only to realize that the last 1k words pushed the story into a corner I couldn't get out of, which meant all of it had to go. I was so disheartened, I couldn't actually get anything more done on it.
