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,

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

My DRAWING course is done. I was happy to be learning it, but I am looking forward to not having graded assignments. After this, I will continue another course I started, which is entirely self-paced. I'll continue sharing my drawings on my Instagram: @thewritebuttons   On the HOME front, I have made a lot of progress on my couch project. Really, it will be a loveseat. I finished the sewing portion of the seat section, the wood base, and have nearly finished the wood back for it. I've added wheels to it instead of legs because I want to be able to move it for easy cleaning. Today, I am working on the sewing of the back piece. I acquired all the hardware I needed for attaching everything. I will have a wood skirt to do, which will help everything stay in place. I also have the sofa cover for it, though I will still have to figure out the arms. I'm taking a break on the sewing until thimbles come later this week because I'm tired of pricking my fingers.  As far as MUSIC

Slumps

Image by Ulrike Mai For quite awhile, I was stuck in nearly every area of my life. I couldn't even think up ways to get unstuck. And I was sleeping terribly, so perhaps there is a connection there. Recently, I became unstuck. I don't know how or why, but lately I see a problem and can think up a work around in seconds. I may not have the energy to execute it, but at least I am getting the ideas for when I do have the energy. Maybe it's because I started a gratitude journal or because I'm beginning to see the light at the end of my renovation tunnel. It could be the hope I've felt since the inauguration happened. Who knows, maybe it's coffee. Speaking of renovations, there has been some slight progress on the bathroom front. They took measurements and will hopefully have materials soon. I don't know when, but hopefully soon. I had a look at the floor I was originally going to get and it wasn't available anymore. The one that was just like it had a pattern
