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,
R~

Hanna "Semi Precious" Murphy

A legend in the roller derby community is gone. How and why, I do not know. What I do know is that many are reeling from the news, myself included. 
Hanna was known for big hits and a brilliant personality. I experienced her hits first hand as she sent me flying a number of times. Then she'd smile and make sure I wasn't hurt. 
I stumbled onto this clip on Youtube from 2012 and I think it shows Hanna as many knew her.
She was a force off the track too.
As a cofounder of the award-winning Top Shelf Distillers, she gave much to the surrounding Ottawa Valley community.  
Hanna was a relatively petite woman and it was she who taught me that I could be mighty despite my size. I wouldn't be the woman I am today if I hadn't had the pleasure and the privilege of sharing the track with her. 
I'm shocked. I'm sad. I'm upset I'll never see her or speak to her again.

Change is in the Air

I've been making a lot of changes lately around my home and some of them might seem a little odd, but they're making me happy. One thing I've done is taken apart my dining table. I never eat in there or have people over to eat. It was just another horizontal surface that would collect things like receipts, odd screws from various projects, and countless piles of paper. I had been frustrated because of the clutter it encouraged, but also because I didn't have a space for my Yamaha keyboard. I had been trying to use my keyboard in the living room, but it felt too cluttered and it wasn't sitting at the right height. With it now in my dining room, I was able to relocate my storage bench, which happens to be the perfect height to sit at while playing my keyboard. I now have much more breathing room. There is still a lot of mess to handle here yet, but I'm making solid progress. A lot of people suggest the bedroom is the place to start when decluttering, but I haven&…

Feeling My Age - ROW80 2020 R1-4

I've reached the age where my body has decided to have issues. Not constantly, but frequently. Sprinting for a bus can leave me with an injured ankle simply from using it, not from actually twisting it in ways it shouldn't move, just a fairly normal activity. I guess I need to warmup and stretch before walking to the bus now. About a decade ago, I was given a guard for my teeth due to grinding. And for the next month, I need to sleep with wrist braces because my doctor thinks I'm developing carpal tunnel. Really, I'm surprised it hasn't happened before now given my level of computer use. My mom had it years ago and had to have surgery. From reading books of all things. Anyway, he thinks if I sleep with braces on that it may be enough to keep it at bay because the nerves will get 7-8 hours of rest. After 4 days and nights, the tingling has been reducing, so I'm hopeful.
