Today was a really, really bad day and for no particular reason that I can think of. I slept well but I did not get up until after ten o’clock. The only reason that I got out of bed was that I had a twelve o’clock appointment to see my psychologist. I was on the verge of tears as I spent the hour trying to figure out the reason(s) for my particularly bad day. All to no avail as I was unable to point to anything different about today. All I seem to want to do is sleep. On the way home, I picked up five additional death certificates that I had ordered last week. My son John and I are going to visit the train museum next sunday. The steam crew is running our steam locomotive (Ventura County no. 2) next weekend and I will ask if John can go on a cab ride. I am looking forward to this trip out to the museum. I am a fairly knowledgeable tour guide, so we should have an interesting day. I may go out into my garage shop tomorrow and paint some passenger cars that I prepared over a year ago. I anticipate a struggle mentally to get started, but it is something I need to do. Tomorrow, the lady who cleans our home is coming at ten o’clock, so I will need to get out of bed by nine o’clock, at the latest. We will see how that goes.
