12 cents, Mexican, and going to be early

Today, my malaise continued a bit.  I had ups and downs.  Tomorrow, more ups than downs.  I found 12 cents on my walk to and from work.  When I got home, I ordered Mexican delivery.  One of the things I can say about Brooklyn that would be hard to say in most cities, is that you can get just about any food delivered to your door from any type of restaurant.  Tonight's choice was loaded nachos with roasted chicken, black beans, and a heap of cheese, guacamole, and sour cream.  It was delicious.

I watched Jeopardy with the friend staying with me.  I remember growing up and watching it with my family and seeing who could get the answers the quickest.  It was usually after dinner, but before homework.  I was frustrated when my sister and mother could read the clues faster than me.  I still feel like I get my fair share of answers correct on the show.  I tried out once in Buffalo, NY, but didn't make it past the multiple choice quiz.

I feel blessed that I have a life where I can go to bed early when I want to.  It's not even 8:00 p.m. and I can choose to crawl into bed and sleep when I want.  I think of friends and family who are working two or three jobs to make ends meet.

Thanks for the blessings of a good job, good food in my stomach, and the continued pennies from heaven that I am finding on the street every day.
