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~

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.
