A few people have remarked on how down I’ve been lately, and it’s true. When I’m down, I tend to over-think things more than usual, so very basic topics like what I should make for dinner become these drawn-out, hours-long searches for a recipe that sounds good and is logistically possible with the tools on hand and accessible ingredients.
Yesterday I just said “screw it” and chose the first recipe that looked not-horrible: kale, mushroom, and tomato sauté with polenta. It worked.
So today I am grateful for:
- Saying “screw it” — I should do this more often.
- Torgi’s renewed vigour. We’ve stepped up his insulin dosage and he is acting more like his old self.
- Working ahead in one of my courses so I can focus on the exam in the other one.
