There will be mixed things again. I had pretty much given up on ever finding an egg beater, an today while at CVS to find something to buy with the 40% off coupon they'd sent me I spied a small electric hand mixer. With the discount it was only ten bucks, and since I'd been expecting to spend at least six or seven for an egg beater, if I ever found one, I decided to get the mixer. I haven't used it yet. Haven't even taken it out of the box. I'm wondering what I ought to make first. When I had an egg beater I used to use it most often to make malteds. I might do that now. Well, tomorrow anyway, since it's getting late now.

I also got a couple more items from K-mart today— two long-sleeved T-shirts (which makes them not quite Ts I uess, since the long sleeves make them wider than they are tall), and another pair of lounge pants to sleep in. They have turned out to be quite comfortable, at least in the cool weather. They are likely to be too warm for summer, but the long-range forecasters are saying that the recent pattern of mild, often rainy days followed by cool nights is apt to last through early May this year, so I could have at least few weeks left to enjoy them.

This is all very dull, of course, but my life has become rather dull, except when I get flooded, of course, and that's unlikely to happen again anytime soon. For a few hours I lived in a lakefront apartment, and I must say it was not as nice as I'd have thought it would be. Better than getting burned out, to be sure, but still not great. Maybe the arrival of the stuff I ordered from Kohl's will bring a bit of excitement back into my life, but I'm not counting on it. Even if it does, it's unlikely to last more than a few minutes. I'll soon go back to feeling like I'm just treading water and getting nowhere.

Well, now I've depressed myself. I'm going to finish this up and then go eat some chocolate. Chocolate always manages to remind me of happiness, even if it can't actually bring it.
