Traffic in Houston has gotten REALLY bad. It's taking me an hour and a half to get to work these past two days. Yesterday the lady in front of me crashed into a truck, but this morning it was just a LOT of people. I guess I'm going to have to get up earlier and come in earlier. Oh well- overtime, right?

Last night we did nothing. I cooked a pretty darn good dinner, we ate and then just stared at the TV all night. I am emotionally drained from all this anger and stuff going on. I wanted to dust and vacuum last night and get some things done, but it did not happen. I guess I'm ok with that, maybe I needed some peace and quiet. I'm trying to keep busy to keep the anger at bay ... but ... sometimes quiet works too.

Tonight I have a list of things I'd like to accomplish. I'm going to make a quick and simple dinner. I got these REALLY good rolls at HEB last weekend for 25 cents each- I got 4- we ate 2 last night as garlic bread. Today I think I'll split them, use some Ragu spaghetti sauce and some HEB frozen meatballs and some mozeralla cheese and make some open-face meatball sandwiches. I also have the makings for a salad and using my coupons, I got some salad dressing last week for 7 cents - $1.07 with a $1.00 coupon. So it will be a nice, quick dinner and then I really need to get my house back together.

It's so true that your home, your body, everything you are and surround yourself with really does reflect what's going on in your head and heart ... and my house is dusty, it's getting cluttered and I think that reflects how I feel right now. I guess I have a problem because other than this situation, life is good right now. I am very blessed, but I tend to really focus sometimes on the bad things.

I think it's good that you're able to recognize that everything else in your life is great. That will help you cope with the other stuff without going totally crazy.
