Contraction Mapping

It's only Wednesday, but It's been a long week. It'd been a long week by the end of Monday, in fact, and it's been dragging on ever since. Last night, well after midnight, I packed up the dishes and most of the food. Also, the furniture is mostly in various stages of disassembly. I ate dinner tonight sitting on my bed; I had instant ramen noodles (six packs for a dime! or something like that) out of a Pyrex measuring cup. And, somehow, it was all good. A place to come home to and sit down after a day's honest work, some warm food in my stomach, a little music to smooth out the frazzle, it's all good.
