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,

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.
