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~

Under Siege

My city is under attack. I wish I was being facetious.  The so-called "freedom" convoy is here and so far this is what has transpired: 1. They parked on the war memorial. These people who call themselves patriots. This is where the Unknown Soldier rests. This is where Corporal Nathan Cirullo lost his life in October of 2014. The cars were towed, but who knows what actual repercussions they will face. 2. Later, when asked to move away from memorial, one stood and jumped on the tomb itself while others cheered.  3. Despite having port-a-potties provided for by the mayor, they've been defecating on Parliament Hill, in snowbanks, and on streets nearby.  4. Flags being flown include the Confederate flag of the United States, Trump flags, the Quebec equivalent to the Confederate flag, upside down Canada flags, regular Canada flags, Fuck Trudeau flags, libertarian flags, and ones adorned with swastikas. Yeah, this is totally about freedom rather than racism, white su

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

OIW - Book Cover Design Seminar

On May 22nd, I went to a seminar on book cover design. Before the information was presented on design, the author of Imposter Bride, Nancy Richler , read part of her first chapter and the story sounds intriguing. Lately, I am preferring to read the work of other Ottawa-area authors. Perhaps someday it will be my book that they read in turn. Currently, I am reading The Crimson Man by Patricia K McCarthy and though it is not in my genre, it is a fiery read. Ladies, you'll enjoy it. So far it feels heated like 50 Shades of Grey, but with more substance and a higher level of writing skill. At the beginning of the meeting, announcements were made about newly published works by members of the Ottawa Independent Writers group. The Autism Story is written as fiction by a university professor that specializes in the area. It sounds interesting as well. Nancy Richler answered questions about publishing after she completed her reading. Here is what I took from it: 1. Avoid small pr
