Maintaining Facebook Silence Today.

I made the mistake of getting of Facebook this morning.
And seeing everyone blame everyone else and their mothers for the shutdown.
So I navigated away from the FB, and will not be going back for the rest of the day.  And possibly not again until this shutdown ends.
If it ever does.
Both Hubby and my brother are federal employees.  Luckily, they were both called in to work regular hours today.  Hopefully that'll continue.

And I'm wondering if I should give up trying to teach acting to college-level and grown-up people and just go work at a book store.
Monday was one of those days:  My thoughts ran along the lines of "I suck at EVERYTHING!  I'm useless!  I'll never amount to anything!  What is the point of me?  Wah wah wah!!!!!!"
Of course, I was coming down with a cold, which makes me cranky.  And Monday was pretty blechy all-around.
It was also the first day of my 10-day vegan cleanse.  Solid food, but no caffeine.  And the food is GOOD! But I can't figure out if my headache today is caffeine withdrawal, my sinuses, or both.
There's a nice recipe that I tried this morning in lieu of my usual cuppa.  It's unsweetened almond milk, maple syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and cloves, all warmed up in a saucepan.  I slurped that stuff right up!

It's also suggested that I keep my workouts lighter during the cleanse.  Which is fine, because walking my son to and from school yesterday was enough to send me to bed early.  Whenever I get a cold, I feel it in my legs: they get very fatigued.  So I'm gonna rest up today & tomorrow, & hopefully will have my energy back for improv tomorrow night.

Have a good one, kids!

No caffeine...I feel for ya. I remember my few weeks of blech in september kicking my caffeine. But now? Caffeine free and I feel so much better. So worth it in the end :) That almond milk drink sounds delicious!

I read about the government halt down there and I just can't wrap my head around doesn't seem real - more like pouty boys not wanting to play fair because they don't get what they want...

That's EXACTLY what it is! They couldn't get their way through legal, democratic means, so now they're holding the economy hostage. It's idiotic!
