I am taking a little mental health break. I am tired and stressed and need to step back for a bit and relax. I don’t know how long this break will last. Maybe just tonight. Maybe the whole weekend. No matter how long I take, barring some unforseen calamity, Punny Monday will be up at Midnight the morning of March 16th.
Christmas was quiet and peaceful in our home.Â OC and I each spent the whole day kicked back and casual.Â He watched sports on TV, I read and played video games.
We had a simple Christmas meal for just the two of us.Â I roasted a chicken, made mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, and steamed asparagus.Â Â We ate, we talked, we laughed.Â It was a mellow meal.Â Afterward I cleaned the dishes and packed us each a lunch of leftovers for today.Â Then I grabbed my book again.
About 35 minutes later OC woke me to tell me that the pie had cooled, and did I want a slice?Â “Mmm-ff, mm-ff,” I mumbled.Â “With ice cream.”Â Right about then I think warm apple pie was the only thing that could have woken me!Â What a lovely, restful day — and without tryptophan!
