And nope, only a short way through the week. I'm currently at the teaching job at the college, on my lunch. Tomorrow and Friday are at two different mental health facilities. Dishwasher gets installed at 4pm tomorrow!

How about good venting? I've had an excellent day so far. I had food stamps ($52) and only two items I needed because I had stocked up on my own last month, so I was able to splurge on all kinds of cheeses, including the makings for lasagna that I've been craving.

My back feels fine today, quite a relief. I feel human.

There. It does feel good to express good feelings, just as it really helps being able to vent the bad ones. I love this thread and all of you too.

I wasn't able to have my regular birthday dinner on my birthday, so Sunday I bought groceries (used all but $7 of our food stamps) and got plenty of stuff to make lasagna. So we will have my "Birthday" dinner Friday when James comes home. My birthday dinner is always either homemade lasagna or homemade pizza, German chocolate cake, and ice cream.

Enjoy your lasagna! I'm glad your back feels fine.

I was thinking that too, but I did get that wonderful feeling that I get when I vent bad stuff. What could we call it?

Anyone have suggestions ideas? Happy Venting?

I don't know, I started to make a new thread, but I could think of so many other places to post what I had to say. The venting thread seems to be where we air our upsets, and how they get solved. Why not let people know that venting is not always a bad thing? I'm still thinking.

I just finished my toasted 12 grain slice of bread with some Gruyere and some Brie too. My stomach is in MMMMMMmmmmmm mode right now. :D
