Home > Rain

It's a cool, rainy day, with more coolness to come. This morning I set out to the train station but instantly walked into a downpour. I knew I would be soaked if I walked all six blocks, even with my rain jacket and umbrella, so I drove instead. I'll probably regret that this evening. The drive home is always so much worse than the drive in. But at least I can stop at Home Depot again to see if the shade is in, and maybe I'll get the chance to vacuum out my car interior, which is badly needed.

Yesterday I indulged in cashew caramel corn at the station. I felt really bad after I ate it. Not that it wasn't delicious, but it wasn't what I needed, and not how I want to spend my money. This morning I bought breakfast on the way in, but at least I brought some chili for lunch. I'm a little off these days. The darker mornings are getting to me. I can't wake up, and the very thought that I will soon be commuting in the cold and snow is depressing. With my future employment in limbo, I don't even know if this is my last year or not! Not that I'm complaining. It's a great position to be in -- either I will get one of two great opportunities, or I will retire as planned.

But this is one of those days when I wish I just could have slept....

    Can you call the Home Depot ahead of time and see if the shade is in? It would be a shame to trek over there again for it to not be there yet!

    Good luck shaking off your funk!

    Yeah, I probably will, but it is right on the way!
