I woke up around 8:00am and Kevin was already awake and trying to be quiet. We sat and watched movies for a few hours while I did some laundry. Then we took a field trip to a book store. I spent entirely too much money there. I hope my purchases will prove to be what they claimed to be. I bought three books about how to write and publish a book. They were all different takes on it. One was about how to blog a book. Another was about writing non-fiction. The last was about writing and publishing fiction. With all three of those combined, I’m hoping to learn everything that I need to know. I also bought a book about the hiking trails in this county. I hope to start hiking more often as exercise.
When we got done with the library, we went out to eat at a pub. I was craving a bacon cheeseburger with sweet potato fries. Because it was a pub, I had some alcohol with the fries. Then I had another glass with the burger. Then I had another glass with dessert. By the time we walked back to my place, I was good and drunk and trying not to show it. We put in another movie and I fell asleep. I slept through the whole movie. I was thankful. I slept through my drunkenness and the painful feeling in my stomach because I had eaten way too much.
Not long after I woke up, Oliver called. Tonight we mostly had theological discussions about what books and authors we liked. We also agreed on what we considered “doing things right” in our religion. We had a debate about white privilege. I did well playing the “devil’s advocate”, but forgot and switched sides at the end so we were both arguing the same point! We both had to get up early in the morning, so we hung up after talking for about an hour.
Meditation: I meditated today.
Sleep: I slept 7 hours last night.
Diet: I barely followed my diet. It didn’t help that I had a small breakfast and waited to eat lunch so then I pigged out on foods I shouldn’t have.
De-cluttering and cleaning: I did not de-clutter or clean.
Hygiene: I showered but did not brush my teeth today.
Mood and temperament: My mood was good today. It was more calm than happy, but I’m okay with that!
