A Little Bit at a Time

My roller derby short story is coming along nicely, I think. I'm hoping to finish it in early April and get some suggestions for editing, so I can send it out. I'm not sure if the tense is right. I feel like something is wonky with it. There's so much for me to learn about writing and it seems there is new information every day.

I started cleaning up my tagging and categorizing on this blog. I'm hoping to improve my SEO some by doing so.

As it's April Fool's Day, I've been ignoring most social media unless it is clearly not an April Fool's joke. Someone created a hate site on Facebook in December and claimed today it was an April Fool's joke. That's highly unlikely. Facebook has since forced the removal of the site, thankfully.

I tried to buy dairy-free cheese popcorn today, but it seems that flavour is only available at Costco. I'm planning to double check that there is no yeast of any kind in it and see if my parents can pick some up for me though it might be wise for me to get some things from Costco like broth... Maybe I should consider getting my own membership.

I have been working diligently to get my condo clean. My back and neck are killing me and there's still tons to go.

On Monday I felt like the week was crawling. Now I feel like the weekend is coming a little quickly as I've not planned much for my visit with the parents in the sense of food. At least I have tomorrow afternoon and evening to get ready.

I hope everyone has an enjoyable weekend whether you celebrate Easter or not.

I have a few things planned and I'm looking forward to them.

Off to do a load of dishes and some reading.

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

My DRAWING course is done. I was happy to be learning it, but I am looking forward to not having graded assignments. After this, I will continue another course I started, which is entirely self-paced. I'll continue sharing my drawings on my Instagram: @thewritebuttons   On the HOME front, I have made a lot of progress on my couch project. Really, it will be a loveseat. I finished the sewing portion of the seat section, the wood base, and have nearly finished the wood back for it. I've added wheels to it instead of legs because I want to be able to move it for easy cleaning. Today, I am working on the sewing of the back piece. I acquired all the hardware I needed for attaching everything. I will have a wood skirt to do, which will help everything stay in place. I also have the sofa cover for it, though I will still have to figure out the arms. I'm taking a break on the sewing until thimbles come later this week because I'm tired of pricking my fingers.  As far as MUSIC

Slumps

Image by Ulrike Mai For quite awhile, I was stuck in nearly every area of my life. I couldn't even think up ways to get unstuck. And I was sleeping terribly, so perhaps there is a connection there. Recently, I became unstuck. I don't know how or why, but lately I see a problem and can think up a work around in seconds. I may not have the energy to execute it, but at least I am getting the ideas for when I do have the energy. Maybe it's because I started a gratitude journal or because I'm beginning to see the light at the end of my renovation tunnel. It could be the hope I've felt since the inauguration happened. Who knows, maybe it's coffee. Speaking of renovations, there has been some slight progress on the bathroom front. They took measurements and will hopefully have materials soon. I don't know when, but hopefully soon. I had a look at the floor I was originally going to get and it wasn't available anymore. The one that was just like it had a pattern
