Monday August 7th

So my brunch with the Bumble BFF lady ended up being really nice. She and I seemed to have a lot of common interests, and I think we could actually be friends. The only thing I’m going to have to watch is the religion talk. Her daughter and son-in-law are “ministers”. I am glad she told me before I said something derogatory about religion. I just need to not mention it. 

When I got home, I went to Central Park and walked a little more than 6 miles. I didn’t walk hard like I usually do at Riverside, but I did walk farther. Central Park was crazy crowded. I know it’s a combination of the fact that it was Sunday, summer, prime tourist season, and Summer Stage. I won’t bother to try that again- at least not with the intention of exercise. 

It is raining right now (9:50 am). I would have gone on my walk right now otherwise. I did take my 2 eBay sales to the post office. I have a dermatologist appointment at 2:00. I think it is supposed to stop raining this afternoon, so I guess I can walk after I get back from that. I should get up and clean my bathroom now. I could also organize some things to take to Goodwill. I just need to do something besides sit on the couch and watch TV. I do that way too much. I feel less lonely with the TV on. If it is quiet so I can try to read, I feel so lonely. Having the TV on, I don’t get that way. I am still struggling with all the emotions from going to Kentucky in July. I keep thinking, “What in the hell am I doing here???” I am very hopeful that once school starts and I have lots to occupy my mind and my time, that will get better. I have decided that I will give myself this full school year to see what happens before I make anymore changes. Stay put and see if things shake out. If, at the end of June I am not feeling it, I will come up with a new plan.
