So maybe I shouldn’t have biked home today. It’s not like the rain took me by surprise or anything, I knew it was coming. And yes I did cure getting wet in the rain by getting wet in the bathtub, but hot water beats cold water, or something like that.

Anyway, I could feel the craving setting in on my way home. Mac and cheese, my soul hissed. Mac and cheese will make you feel better. Mac and cheese will cure the stress and the cold and the rain. I knew it was a lie from the start, but I wasn’t as strong as I should have been. I have all the fixings for a good salad right there in the fridge, but instead I ate leftover gnocchi. I didn’t even heat it up. Cold gnocchi. Sigh. Really I should have just taken the bath first, I feel much more level-headed after that, and less likely to make impulsive decisions.

At any rate, I really need to figure out how to manage this new insane level of work stress that has entered my life, because it sure seems like it’s not going anywhere. Ever. Sigh.
