Thanks to Pat R for sending me this one. I identify! ;)

Happy Tuesday. Oh man, I just got back to read the rest of Monday's menu and it sounds like 99% of you all are having a really rough time for one reason or another. I was going to come on and complain about having to drive to a bunch of places today, but... I think I am fine, lol. Hang in there, everybody!

Accountability: Great but I added a 100 Calorie Pack of cocoa almonds in the evening.

QOTD: It's the little things, right? So since so many people here are having rough time, let's name a few little things that made your day better yesterday!

  1. I have a new backpack for commuting. It's stylish, roomier, and easier to pack!
  2. I really like the new book I am reading.
  3. Long story, but a person who I had some friction with at work is no longer working on my team.
  4. I spent a long time last weekend ironing a huge pile of clothes and now everything is crisp and ready to grab from the closet.

No, I own an actual iron! I use it on veneer, with hide glue.

The priceless memory of when your kid fixed his own lunch with bread, cheese, and the iron and didn't tell you and then you ironed a white shirt...

Yes, I did not believe in physical punishment, but sometimes I felt I could be convinced otherwise.

Yes, but not after it's been used on glue.
