Saturday, January 2

  • 1 larabar
  • ~3s olive oil potato chips
  • GF dinner roll 
  • few BWCs

Sleep: 7.5 hours in bed, 11p-630a, 76% quality. In late due to movie, up earlier than desired due to dogs. Was in/out 430a onward, bah.

Healthy Movement: Body feeling really good. No aches from yesterday's run or the many swings. Ran snowy trails at Andes with a trio of "real" runners, three miles that felt like 8, oof. Felt sleepy/tired afterward, visited parents for family gathering, sat around like a slug.

Fun & Play: Slow-moving morning. FB silliness. An outing with a bestie (plus more!) in warm sunshine on a lovely winter day. Family time.

Stress Management: Renters, specifically a renter who acts like the world is out to get him, and we are horrible people, and we're going to have to send the sheriff if we want him out, and we'll see you in court, and etc, because we want to raise the rent by $50. It is challenging not to internalize any of his hateful rants. What other people do has nothing to do with me. I'm not being unreasonable. He's overreacting beyond belief, downright senseless, and concerningly unstable. And yet...UGH, so hard not to feel the horrible things he's saying.

I will say this: he said he was going to kill himself in the basement after the family gets moved out, because this has sent him over the edge, and that's going to be on my conscience. Well, both his girlfriend and his mother got screen shots of that, because I will never ever take any sort of suicide threat lightly. Never. It's imperative that we as a society stop joking about it, stop throwing it out as a threat, and stop ignoring people with symptoms of mental illness. I strongly suspect it was less of a threat and more of him being an asshole, but I have no way of knowing what is inside his head, so I have no choice but to take it at face value and share it with people who will know whether he truly needs help. I will not let that slide, not ever.
