Day 5 - Skunked

I am exhausted.  The energy drain is very noticeable and the mental challenge is definitely here.  Today I had some time mid-day so I thought I would be nice and drive Ty, my son, and his friend Gavin to lunch.  They chose Five Guys and as soon as I walked in I had to leave.  I let them eat by themselves and waited in the truck.  I wanted those fries so badly.  And when the kids were finished, Ty brings back a bunch of fries in the truck to take with him.  Uhg!
It was more of the same again for me - clams, rice, asparagus, water.  Clams, rice, asparagus, water. . . I should have to write that 100 times.  Why can't I seem to branch out of this Survivor Diet pattern of always eating the same stuff?  What else can I find around here to eat?  I just think it's a matter of laziness on my part combined with a lack of creativity.   I have been so determined to catch a striped bass that I am not exploring what else may be available to me.  I'll have to give that some serious thought.

After work I went fishing on the boat with Dad and we basically got skunked again.  It was a pleasant evening but the fish were uncooperative and the tide was too low so we packed it in early and made plans to try again next week.

Tomorrow will be a long day.
