Almost early evening!

Weather: Bright, sunny and HOT

Sleep: Restless and a very bad ending to it

Mood: Eh...still depressed

Plans: Let's see. Got up @ 4:30 to see the comet show, but my vision was too bad to see it. Went back to bed, supposedly for 2 more hours, but of course when the alarm went off I either shut it completely off OR thought I hit the snooze button. I was rudely awakened by ds2 slamming the door open and loudly announcing the paratransit bus was here to pick me up. I'd overslept 2 hrs. No time to brush my teeth. Hair got put up. Dressed. No breakfast, no packed lunch. Nothing to drink. Had to buy snacks (candy) for lunch and sodas there. Learned there is no class Weds, but I still need to be there for a dr appt with their optometrist. Came home to a notice in the mail regarding my defaulted student loan from a collection agency. They're already garnishing $150/mo from my SSDI and now they want me to pay a different payment each month. Ummm...hello? Figured out the bus route to come home on Wed because my appt runs past the last pick up time for the paratransit service. Nervous because it will be the first completely independent activity I will have in about 4 mo. Also excited because if I can pull this off, I will be able to escape more. Need to fold laundry but not feeling it. Cooking dinner and then that is it for me.

Oh! I learned how to cross big and busy intersections today! I know this seems silly and small, but for me it is a BIG thing! YAY me!

Hope your Mondays were less hectic than mine.
