So, that's one good thing.
I think I can count my recent return to healthier eating as another. It's a cycle with me. I manage to plan meals, and eat lots of whole, fresh fruits and veggies, and stay off the mac 'n' cheese for a few months until some crisis or depressive relapse wrecks it for me. Well, they say that when people try to quit smoking, it's statistically more likely that they'll succeed the 6th or 7th time they try. I wonder if I can apply this to my eating style. I wonder if this time, I can be prepared for the inevitable back-slide, and not let it derail me entirely. It'll be interesting to find out.
A third thing; my dear boy found our CD set of Neil Gaiman reading his Fragile Things anthology. This is a very pleasant change from non-stop, 24-7 election coverage on NPR. I love NPR, but I cannot take it. So it's books on CD till after November 4th. Anyone have any to recommend?
