Monday No Fun Day

After making my way to Grocery Outlet this afternoon I found that they no longer had any of the items in this week's ad I was interested in, and they were also out of the kind of donuts I buy. There is another type of donuts they sell there, so I bought those. They are a bit cheaper than the others, by volume at least, since they come in dozens instead of half dozens, but dozens go stale before I can finish them unless I eat two a day, which I don't like to do.

Walking down there was more tiring than usual, too, and coming back was utterly exhausting. I had been thinking I might try to go to Safeway on the bus Tuesday, as the things in this week's ad I'd like to get are mostly small and would be easy to carry on the bus, but after my experience today I just don't know that I'd have the energy. The new ad comes out Wednesday, so this will be my last chance to get the stuff from this week's ad.

Other than that I got nothing done today. Even my dinner was microwaved. Oh, I did finally remember to put the wheelie bin out tonight. That was more tiring than usual too. Exhaustion is rapidly becoming my new normal condition. I'm not sure I'll even be able to get to the Goodwill store for senior discount day Tuesday or Wednesday. Next Sunday's red tag sale seems very far away, as does the following day's whole store half price sale.

One problem today was that the city was doing some tree trimming along the bike trail, and the incredibly loud machinery was running right behind my apartment, waking me up at ten o'clock in the morning. Maybe I'll get to sleep a bit earlier tonight, if I'm not overtired. But recently reading has been putting me to sleep pretty fast, so that might work. The forecast is calling for a shocking high of 72 degrees tomorrow. Can it really be February? It's suppose to get back to highs in the sixties for a couple of weeks after that, but that's like late March weather. I'm starting to fear that our winter is already over, and that a brief spring will then give way to torrid summer by April. Most displeasing.
