Bad Brownies

I have become slightly argumentive lately. I am disappointed in myself.
It is like there is this DEEP rooted bitterness trying to escape (or not) and I can't seem to overcome it.
So I am asked by the lovely wife to pick up 200 rolls (homeless feeding) and also to stop and get 3 boxes of brownie mix and 2 bags of chocolate chips. wife is famous for many things of which her food preparation ability is legendary:
1. Perazzelli Sweet Lemonade
2. Brownies
3. Gnocchi
4. Pasta
5. Homemade Pizza
and the list goes on......generally we are easy ingredient people.
Mar likes the Aldi's (real cheap) brand of brownies and needless to say Aldi's was closed when we needed the mix ( see Mar made the brownies, but then my daughter and her friends exceeded their brownie limit).

LO' and BEHOLD---I stopped at the local Acme and I have NEVER seen brownies like this before--- Traditional Brownies, Double Chocolate Brownies, Turtle Brownies, Reeses' Brownies, Brownies with colorful sprinkles and I counted OVER 25 varities of brownies on the shelf----Folks---THAT IS TO MUCH!!!

Thanks for listening----it always feels better after talking

okay, so I am and have been confused and down lately. It is work related and even though I am a man of solutions---I have none. I am awaiting a trip to the Grand Canyon in 2+ weeks that will suffice for a bit of a sabbatical......otherwise, work is really been trying for me lately. See I got this attitude in my brain and I can't seem to shake it----it is an attitude of ungreatfulness----yup, I feel like I am being taken advantage of. I wish I did not feel this way and it is seriously affecting my mental state. Maybe you can relate and maybe you can't.
