Weird Weekend

I visited my hometown for the Easter long weekend. There wasn't much down time in my schedule.

On Friday I chilled with some buddies from highschool. There were some new people there and one had a take on homosexuality that I really didn't appreciate. The person is under the mistaken impression that it's caused by over-nurturing children and somehow oblivious to all recent scientific studies in this area.
The board game we played, Shadows over Camelot, was fun. It's a collaborative one with quests. We successfully completed the quest for the holy grail because we're awesome.

On Saturday, I got 2 new summer tires and ran into an old friend from elementary school. It was nice seeing him and catching up.
After the 1.5 hours of tire stuff, I got ready for a party in Chisolm, Ontario. It was the most country place I've been to and while it was nice seeing some friends, I don't think I need to go there ever again. I had such a weird evening that I got inspiration for a horror story involving cannibalism. People probably thought I was somewhat antisocial or weird since I wasn't talking a lot. The story going on in my head was rather distracting.
Eventually, I made it out of the country and back to my parents in time for a visit with a long time family friend who's pretty much a brother to me.

Sunday brought a slower pace. I had lunch with a friend and chatted about various things. I'm happy things are going well for her.
After that I made brownies and helped my mom with supper. I had time for some reading and my bro came over. Dinner was tasty.

Monday rolled around and I drive back to Ottawa. That night I played some Oblivion.

So the Easter weekend was a mixed bag for me, but overall enjoyable.

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.
