Shallots and Sleep

Considering the fact that I had nothing scheduled yesterday, I tied on my Suzy Homemaker apron and did a lot of food prep stuff. Put the nice pork tenderloin in the slow cooker, added mushroom soup, Lipton soup, and some shallots* and set 'er on high. Peeled lots of garlic cloves and added them. Cut up a large white onion, a big green pepper, more garlic, and put them in the fridge for what I'll probably make today. Cut Romaine, halved cherry tomatoes, added shredded carrots and cheddar, and put it in the fridge. Chopped up a big bunch of broccoli and had that for lunch.
Called Betty and we chatted. Texted my tenant re the info she had sent me from a solar panel company--or something--supposedly offering to lower the electric bill. Considering the highest bill I remember was about $3.90--and most were much lower--I didn't think it would apply to my house. I called and that was the case. I sent Eileen a text to that effect, but will also call the township tomorrow.
Went to the library and ran into my friend, Marie. We chatted for a bit and she gave me the number of her rep for supplemental health care. Her deal seems a lot better than mine and I want to look into it. Went to WinCo after to get cucumber and eggs for the salad. Hard-boiled the latter and added it; had a bowl for a second lunch (the broccoli was good, but not enough).
I took some DMV tests on-line and did okay. I'm getting more and more nervous over the fact that I haven't gotten my California license. I started the procedure, but haven't yet taken the written or driving tests. I have this great fear and worry about it--not sure why.
Darn--for the first time in months, I had trouble sleeping last night. Got up for the usual reason at midnight, then tossed and turned when I went back. Will make a point of getting more exercise today.
*Oddly enough, maybe, I had never bought or prepared shallots before in my life; I barely knew what they were. When I started peeling them, I thought I might never buy them again, as that was a real pain. However, I looked on line and found that if you cover with boiling water, let them sit for 5 to 10, then cool, they can't be easier to peel. Good.
