Sore, coughed-out even though it continues, tired, moody, and disappointed with many adults in my nation. I don't know about you, but I grew up expected to learn to play well with others even if I didn't personally like them.

Well us poor folk are gonna get even poorer and the rich more rich. That's why we gotta learn to eat healthy on a budget, pull that nutrition out with a shoestring, and wring protein from beans and other non-meat products.

I am trying not to seriously have the wicked blues. I don't see any light at the end of the tunnel, but that might mean I've become blind.

peace to you and best wishes.

I'm not even near perfect, but I know someone who is.

Satisfied.

I got some needful things done, took some time to talk with strangers in a positive way, met with new family members, had a free dinner with my wife and we came home to chill.

What a relief.

Perturbed by my nation, my Government, my family, and my church. That pretty much sums up most of my meaningful relationships. Especially since I'm seeking to keep up with having some form of healthy relationship with my wife who is 1) family, and 2) part of the church.

I say perturbed because it means "unsettled". When on shifting sands it is always wise to keep an eye on the horizon in relation to where you stand. If you don't, you'll probably wander off afar and get lost. That is true in desert survival, which I've been trained in, and life (of which I'm still a student until the day I die).

While I still have trouble eating 3x a day, I pray much more often than that and seek real solutions through listening, reading, and actual thinking. Imagine that, an American actually reasoning things through rather than being a knee-jerk reactionary.

Tired. I've stayed up all night so my wife can be sure to get off on time to get to her surgery this morning. Ugh. I'm definitely a dragon at the moment. I'm a draggin' over here, then over there...

humor helps, even if it is sophomoric.

happy to have eaten some refried beans I made from canned pintos + seasonings, a couple slices of cheese, jalapeno, microwaved caramelized onions, and two nuked poached eggs. I ate 8 tortilla chips (Julio's Freekin' Hot - habanero) with it.

enjoying the meat chili I made with green chile peppers and lots of paprika (namely because I haven't gotten basic red chile powder to use. Now I must do so, I'm out of paprika!) hahaha

I have only made it through 3 meals so far, and have at least another 12 meals or so. My wife doesn't seem ready to help me. She prefers cereal for each meal.

I made the chili with items donated to us by a neighbor and purchased on extreme discount at our local Target Superstore (such as $6.49 for 1lb premium beef stew meat with $5 off sticker. $1.49 a pound for beef? Woo Hoo).

Today I am grateful our kitten "Motley" decided to climb on the bed and sleep on our legs during the night. She has been most shy, and so we've been winning her slow and softly. Her sister Moustachae is quite the pet-hound, so we are making progress with these two offspring of a stray momma.

We also got some food bank items our upstairs neighbor didn't want, so that helps tremendously.

Today I'm glad we passed our housing inspection. Now we just need to get the new contract signed. Ugh. The management keeps changing at our apartment complex, and in 4 years there have been three owners. I think it is used as a tax-write off. Perhaps this will change with Trump's new plan.
I am still recovering from doing 6 loads of laundry the other day. Whew. And I'm trying to get to all my teams to post and interact. Thankfully, I have some friends who help out with that too.
Cheers to all who are on the adventure of being healthy, one could even say staying slim with a skinny wallet?
Eh?
