Fortify Merrying Frimonday - Uncertainty


My life is filled with uncertainty lately. 
I'm struggling to get the fiction writing in while learning French and doing my job. I think it's mainly because I'm losing so much sleep from being chronically itchy. 

No idea what is causing that. And it's one of those things where you hope the blood tests uncover it but also hope they don't find anything and it just goes back to normal on its own.

On top of this, something happened to the woman across the hall Thursday night and I don't even know if she is alive. I didn't hear anything but the barking dog, but I saw a man while doing my laundry. Now, I'm wondering if I could be a target next as the police spoke to me quite a bit.

What if I had started my laundry a minute sooner or a minute later? I wouldn't have seen anything at all.

And there's still nothing in the news about it.

Dating is largely fraught with uncertainty. I seem to be a magnet for the wrong ones or there's just a lot of the wrong ones out there. Time will tell on this.

It's the end of Thanksgiving weekend in Canada. It was a short trip to my hometown. 

I practiced iaido, but couldn't remember most of the koryu kata on my own. I'll be working on remembering Omori-Ryu after grading.

My family started the talk about power of attorney with the parents because they've had some scares and are getting older. That was about as delightful as you can imagine, though it could've gone worse. Parents didn't say much. 

And I met with my finance guy before leaving town. That put my mind at ease on some things.

I'm was off to install a proper shower rod because I'm tired of fighting to keep the tension rod from falling down, but my drill needs charging. 

Plan B is to relax while I tweak my schedule.

Hope everyone enjoyed the weekend!

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.
