Do you, in the town or city you live in, hate driving?  I swear today was the most aggravating day I've had while driving in a long time.  All day, other drivers found some way to piss me off, and make me hate driving.  I'm just glad to be home, and I don't have to go anywhere tonight.

On a lighter note, here's a recipe my mom found today.  It's called Tomato Lentil Chili.  I don't know what it tastes like yet, but I'm making it for supper Monday night.  If you want a copy of it, you can find it here.
