Jan 7th

Yesterday was a long day for me. It was the first really packed day after the Christmas break, so I was a bit overwhelmed. After work, I went walking with my friend Lisa. I love Lisa - she motivates me so much! Apart from just being a great walking buddy, she lives a very mindful and thoughtful life - something I aspire to. Since I have started to take the bus to work, it's a longer commute now - almost an hour. By the time I got back home, I was tired and ravenous. So, I made something quick and easy and tasty - lemon rice w. peanuts. It's my Indian comfort food. I could have made some veggies, but ended up not doing that. But not to worry - I got several servings of veggies at lunch, so I think I'm okay.

When I got home, Don had done a bunch of housework. Our dishwasher's on the blink, so he washed a bunch of dishes, took out the trash and recycling, straightened up in the living room and made the bed. I was very grateful. Housework and organization are not his strong suits. Several of our big arguments are about this. When I thanked him, he said, "Well, I thought about how I could show you that I love you, and I thought you'd like this." He can be a cutie pie sometimes. (Though he also drives me nuts frequently!) I wish he would learn to cook - that's a skill I could use especially on days when I get home late. But he is as unmotivated to cook as he is motivated to eat. Never mind - I'll gladly take a straightened up home instead!
