What's up?

In the passed couple of days I've:

- edited chapter 2 of The Page & The Magician and sent the entire novel for review by a writing group friend.
- attended the monthly Ottawa Independent Writers meeting where a couple of people read some of their work.
- went to the Ottawa Geek Market, where a friend taught me how to play Carcassonne. Beginner's luck resulted in me taking the win. I dressed up as a Steampunk girl Ranma 1/2.
- tried a new pho place called Thi Fusion. It was tasty and cheap ($9 for a decent sized bowl). The decor is also pretty nice.
- played guitar. I played with CD tracks today from my one book and that was a lot of fun. Maybe someday I'll be able to play along with music from the bands I love.
- worked on learning French though I'm not sure how much is sinking in.
- continued work on my roller derby short story.
- read more of The Demonologist by Andrew Pyper. I'm loving the story.
- went to martial arts class, which left my arms feeling like rubbery jello. I also had to have a nap after it.
- bought more advanced guitar books. I'm hopeful the level 2 class runs in April on the Saturday.

My arms still feel like rubbery jello and typing is getting difficult.

I think popcorn and some TV or a movie is in order.

Ciao,

A Lot of Bullspit - 2020 ROW80 R3-W5

This week has had a lot of bullspit in it. Shortly after my last trip to buy reno supplies, I discovered mold in my bathroom. While that's not shocking, it's pretty much because they appear to have left wet drywall in the wall and covered the wall with another layer of drywall instead of properly repairing it after a leak. Geniuses. This is a mixed bag. It means I may have to do the tub area sooner than I expected. It is the same wall as the annoying peeling paint, so that's kind of good. I may just need to replace much of the wall, which is about 1.5 drywall boards because it's a small room. Cost wise, the wall repair isn't so bad. I'm not looking forward to having to deal with it, but I acquired the PPE gear for it and the mold removal supplies. Now, here's where the project may change substantially. I was originally planning to install a tub surround over the tile and then use the Rust Oleum tub restore stuff, but if there is mold in the wall, it's li

ROW80 2020 R4 - GOALS

I've gotten zero writing done recently, however, I had other pressing things.  HOME As my new bed frame was due for arrival last Friday (more on this later), I hauled ass and purged a bunch more stuff from my home. I brought a full carload to donation and started loading up again. I also dealt with my old mattress, which I'm repurposing for a couch. Now, I didn't fully complete it as I haven't figured out all the pieces, but I did get it cut up appropriately and moved out of my bedroom. I'm currently sewing it back together. As for my bedroom, I was able to do a major declutter and access areas I haven't been able to in months. But that area now has bathroom stuff in it. There is more to do, but I'm really happy with my progress of late. I've cut myself numerous times on the couch project including my heel finding a tiny piece of glass, my palm finding a wayward staple, my knuckle finding who knows what, my one thumb having a run in with a box cutter, an

Catching My Breath - 2020 ROW80 R3-C6

 I've tried writing this post numerous times, but I needed a break. A long one. I've been mega stressed out and depressed, so I have been taking a little breather. I was feeling broken, but the experience has forced me to slow down and relax. I've gotten some help including medication for it and I am feeling much better. I'm feeling like myself more with each passing day. I'm sleeping better and have energy again.  I have been reducing my social media time. Especially Facebook. Actually, I enjoy Instagram much more. FITNESS I've been scooting and I'm getting back into skating. It's often hard to get out because of rain. Eventually, I want to do tricks on my skates. This skater may not be in derby anymore, but she's still a skater ;) I have a ton of plans for cross training once winter is here. I'll be hitting up outdoor rinks if they are available, but I'm also going to work on off skate skills that will help me get to doing tricks later on.
