I do feel a little better than yesterday. Mondays at the bank...they're just bad. Today was peaceful but a little boring. Made a chicken pot-pie for dinner, it was pretty good and will stretch to another night easily. My goal was to be in bed by 11 every night this week until I feel better (less down) but I've already missed it; I didn't get home from the bank and grocery until after 7, so the casserole wasn't done till D needed some help with his work, which took awhile. But tomorrow night, D's cooking, so.

Who knows how to convert "MCF"s into "therms"? Well, I do, now. Who even knew what a "therm" was? not me. (One therm is like 1,000 BTU's or something.) What's great about the internet is that you can Google "convert MCF into therm" and get 300 hits explaining how to do it. FYI, one MCF= 10.19 therms. Stupid budget forecasting. They shouldn't make building engineers work with spreadsheets and numbers, it's like making pro atheletes talk on tv. They're bad at it and it's painful to watch. Sometimes I think I get more use out of all my Excel training helping D with stuff than I ever have with my own work.

I've decided to let the desk rest a little while I get the apartment cleared up to the point where I don't want to cry or move (house) when I look around. After all, who wants to move a new piece of furniture into a mess like this? Working every night past six makes it hard though, because evening is when I have the least energy and motivation. But I shall try.

I thought "therms" were a type of cold-weather underwear. ;)
