I really slept.  Which is good because I needed it.  One of the worst things about being homeless is the lack of sleep.  You really only get about five or six hours a day.  That just isn't enough.

I tried to watch a rerun of that show The Five on Fox.  I don't know if the show just isn't good or I was just too tired, because I feel asleep before it was over.  But like I said I needed a really good night's sleep.  I am going to make myself more pasta today.  I even a little of the salad leftover.  I treated myself to some string beans and squash.  I can use the colander as a steamer.  So I am really looking forward to it.  I wished I had the tools to make turnips but I can't get to my storage unit.  Oh, well.  I am still getting a better meal than I have had in while.

Although I did find a restaurant that serves Miso soup for $1.50.  It is a good sized too.  I try to get as much vitamins as I can, but that is not always possible with a small amount of money I have to spend.

I am going to take a really long shower with the hottest water I can stand.  That is another issue of being homeless, you don't always get hot showers.  In many instances the water is luke warm.

Someone sent me a donation with a note attached that she is liberal, but wanted to help.  I never really thought  that liberals didn't want to help.  Although my experience has been that they feel I should be getting more help from the state.  Maybe, but it doesn't work that way in real life.

  1. So good to hear you had a good night`s sleep and now are taking advantage of a looooong hot shower. Few things revive and rejuvenate me better. Also proud to see you trying to get nutritious and filling meals; the most bang for your food bucks.

    You might check with motel mgt. to see if you can use their laundry facilities; might save a couple bucks and save traveling and having to sit on your clothes the whole time !

    Hoping / praying you`ll be able to extend your stay at the motel or perhaps something even better. Also praying your car holds up till you have money for repairs.
