mental fatigue

i've been going at this second draft for a month and have reached the point of mental fatigue. you know when you look at a simple word and can't figure out how to spell it? word? wurd? werd? and you can't remember if the period goes before the quotation mark? a month of straight writing is about my limit, but i'm going to try to make it another week.

i wish simon would get here.

six months ago i started getting groceries from simon delivers. last delivery, all the frozen food was thawed and the ice cream was really warm cream. so i dumped simon -- and was forced to actually leave my house, get in the car, and drive to the grocery store. i promptly decided i must give simon another chance. i've finished off the last package of ramin noodles. the last box of stale cereal. the last can of beans and last tortilla.

come on, simon!!

What a great way to stay chained to the computer--have everything delivered! Jer

yes, i will miss simon if i move back to iowa!
he has me spoiled. one thing i really hate about living in a city is shopping. just normal shopping. it takes SO LONG. there is no such thing as running in to quickly grab something. i started using simon when the parking lots and sidewalk were icy. they charge $5 for delivery, but many of their groceries are less than the store near me.

I feel so sorry for edaddy if we ever get a delivery service round here, I'd never leave home. I hate people. I hate the grocery store more than anything.

i forgot to mention that simon also carries office supplies: printer ink and paper. :O
