Wonder Wednesday: Does anyone really have all of it together?

Does anyone really have all their shit together? This is what I'm pondering today.

It seems everytime I think I'm getting mine together, I do something awfully dumb that complicates my life unnecessarily.

The latest incident? I made a taco lasagna. Delicious. It was to be my lunches for this week. Well, day 1 and 2 I had taco lasagna. On the evening of day 2, I came home discover I had somehow forgotten to put it away before leaving for work.

So, I ate my leftover pho for supper and pondered whether I should skip martial arts to ensure I could eat. I remembered I had this frozen thing that would do for Wednesday's lunch and I could cook it after martial arts.

I had a great session at iaido, so I'm really glad I went. We worked on things I sorely needed to fix like the horizontal cut. I had been getting lax and not making sure the tip is where it needs to be in order for me to ensure I was cutting anything when I drew my hand across. Probably one of the most important cuts in the art... I also wasn't gripping properly. No surprise there as that's one of my troublesome areas.

On the way home, I decided to stop and get groceries as I need to get food ready for Comiccon. Groceries at 9:30 PM is something I may do more often. Fewer people, so it was quicker. Also, the introvert in me preferred the tranquility.

I shove that frozen thing in the oven. It's supposed to take 25 minutes. It was still frozen in the middle. Fek.

And that was my evening.

So I wonder if other people do this? How does my brain completely forget to put stuff back in the fridge? Is it because I'm behind in my dishes and couldn't discern the food from the dishes? What's the deal? Will I ever have my shit together or does it only happen once you have kids? Does it even ever happen for anyone?

At any rate, I had food. It was palatable. I'd probably buy it again, but I'm not desperate for it. I could make my own better if I had the time.

Speaking of time, I have things to get done. Like sleep because I didn't get enough yesterday.

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.
