Merry Monday: A Challenging Day

It's one of those Mondays where I'm having trouble being positive.

I took today off after Ad Astra to recover from the last two weekends of heavy socialization, a head cold, and a lot of learning. I was doing OK and might have stayed so had I got out of bed before 10AM. You see, I lounged about and let my schedule get all wonky. Normally I do this on weekends, but I remember to get my medication into me.

Oops.

I didn't realize I hadn't taken my morning dose until I was in line at Walmart, which I was only there because I was looking for an Xbox 360 breakaway cable. Mine went missing and I can't play Rocksmith without it as the guitar cable needs that piece to plug into the USB port. I was hoping to play it today. Instead, I got pain and fatigue.

At least I got pho today since I had just missed out on it last night when I arrived back in town.

I can't seem to get the mall security to email me back despite sending them a copy of my receipt as proof that I was shopping there and not parking and riding. Where I could've gone in an hour on OC Transpo and actually come back, I have no idea. I wonder if there's any hope in getting it canceled.

As I'm editing my book, I feel like it's never going to be as awesome as I want it to be. I read the first bit of Ed Greenwood's Hellmaw: Your World is Doomed and was astounded by the immediate transportation into another place. I want to be able to do that! I know I should definitely not compare myself to such a prolific writer, but damn it's solid and wonderful. I should find his first novel and see how that one compares to what he is writing now. Everyone starts somewhere after all.

I'm still coughing. Been doing so since around the 22nd. I'm wondering if that will ever end as well.

I had planned to get so much more like laundry and dishes done today also. All I managed was getting a few things from the store and editing a chapter and a half.

So I don't really know if I have a point here. The week has started off pretty crappily. I suppose that means it should get better from here?

It's 9PM and I have yet to eat supper. I should probably fix that. Maybe I'll have something light given the time.

Do I have enough clothes to get me to Wednesday night? I play this game way too often... Maybe someday I'll be on top of that. I might edit some more while I snack and watch something on Netflix. Or I'll play some guitar. I was really hoping to play Rocksmith. The cable is going to take a couple of weeks to get here.

Oh, hey I have dairy free chocolate pudding. The day is looking up :)

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.
