Today feels like an elaborate April Fools day prank. Only it wasn’t.
My day started out really good! I got up early and did both my back stretches and my shoulder exercises. I even straightened up my apartment. It still needs a good cleaning, but it was a start. I had a good day at work too! I even gave away the rest of my chocolate and followed my diet for breakfast and lunch.
I was on my way home when I got pulled over by a cop. I knew both my registration and vehicle inspection were both expired, so I wasn’t looking forward to another ticket. The cop came back and told me that my license was suspended due to an unpaid ticket and he had to arrest me. My car had to be impounded due to the expired registration. They patted me down, cuffed me, and put me in the back of a police car. They put me in a holding cell and asked me if I could post bail. I couldn’t. They asked me if I had a friend or family in the area who could do it. I told them I just moved here in September and I didn’t have anyone. I curled up in a ball in the corner of the holding cell and cried as they took care of all of my paperwork and read me my rights. Finally they asked if I could do $100 bail. I could. They took me to the atm, I took out $100, and signed several forms. I was told that I could get my car out of impound when I was able to provide a current registration.
Thankfully, my apartment was within walking distance from the police station. I called my mom who was willing to drive 2 hours tomorrow to pick me up from work and take me to the DMV. I just hope that I can get it all taken care of tomorrow. After tomorrow, they will charge me daily for holding my car in the impound. I drank the remaining alcohol in my fridge. It wasn’t enough to get me drunk, as is evidenced by my still legible writing. But it was enough to dull my senses, like I needed it to.
Exercise: I walked 4 blocks and did both my back stretches and shoulder exercises today.
Diet: I followed it until dinner.
De-cluttering and cleaning: I de-cluttered but did not clean today.
Hygiene: I showered, but did not brush my teeth.
Mood and temperament: My mood was good until I was arrested and my car impounded. I think my depression was not an unreasonable reaction to that portion of my day.
