Always darkest before the dawn

So, yeah. A lot of the drama from the weekend has either dissipated or worked itself out or is being dealt with, one way or the other, and I'm in a much better state of mind today. Which is good. Being depressed sucks.

The student loan bills I've been getting don't reflect my consolidation loan, which has been approved, and it appears I'll be eligible for a deferment/forbearance since the current monthly payments are more than (insert large fraction here) of my monthly gross income. So that's something I need to get the paperwork moving on, but at least I can deal with it. $666.55, indeed.

I put off doing laundry last night because it was raining like hell out and I was too depressed to consider schlepping all the laundry up and downstairs. God, I can't wait until I'm in an apartment with its own washer and dryer again. Today's weather looks a lot nicer, and I see a trip to the laundromat being written in my agenda with a pen instead of being penciled in.

Pool should be open this weekend. It would have been nice for it to have been open last weekend, but this weekend is okay.What with all the rain this week it really hasn't felt much like summer yet anyway.

Pop quiz, feet, trains, stuff

A little late for Memorial Day, but all y'all ought to get 100% on this MSN quiz about the "basics" of World War 2. It's more of a trivia quiz, imao, but it does hit stuff most kids ought
to know before they get to high school. (In From The Cold)

The podiatrist appointment this morning went well. The left leg is healed up, the right leg almost so, and I'll see the good Dr. W one more time in nine weeks before I head down I-94 to Virginia. I'll be lucky to find someone that good down there, but with two AAA cities in easy driving range hopefully I can come arbitrarily close.

I'd forgotten how goddamn enervating the train is. It takes 45 minutes to get from the Nicollet Mall to Fort Snelling, and another 10-15 minutes of walking to the car, which means by the time I sat down and did my evening blood sugar check it was already 1915. I'll probably still go do laundry tonight, although I could let it slide for another day...
