Baseball yesterday and emotional outlets other than food.

Having a glum kinda day
Today, I am feeling glum. Not a serious level of glumness, just low key glummity. I am sure it will pass, and be gone tomorrow. I feel like I am missing out on the fun of summer, because I have no energy, and I can't jump up and run around li... Read more
