Fortifying Friday - Much to Do

[caption id="attachment_4712" align="alignleft" width="300"]tgif Image created using Bit Strips.[/caption]

I have a large list of things to do. Possibly even too much.

On the writing front, I have to finish a short story. I'm a quarter of the way through. It's fun to write despite it veering away from my original plan. Actually, I don't think any story I've written has stayed on course.

I have a ton of French to do, but I'm really not wanting to bother with it at all.

My school laptop is supposed to arrive today. I have a deposit to put on my seat for school, but am waiting for the transfer to happen from my investment account. Working on the financial plan for school with my adviser. I also have taxes to start. Ugh.

I need to continue cleaning my house. Much progress was made on this as the building superintendent had to visit the other day to help me fix a plumbing problem that didn't end up getting fixed. All the cleaning I did until midnight left me pretty tired the next day. I still have some dishes and a whole lot of laundry to do. I'm thankful I ran into one of the condo board members the other day as she clued me into a giant bin to take my cardboard to instead of the stinky garbage room where the small bins are usually overflowing. It's a bit of a walk, but way better otherwise.There's a bunch of things I want to do instead of the rest. I have novels to write. I really want to get back to The Blood Waitress Club. Scion is also nagging me.

I have video games and musical instruments to play. Skyrim and Assassin's Creed Brotherhood are calling to me. So is Uncharted 2. I had to take a guitar break when I cut my finger, but I also want to get back to playing trumpet and learning keyboard as well as studying music theory more deeply.

I have martial arts to practice. I want to get my skill back in karate, but don't remember most of the kata :(

*Sigh* I guess whining about this isn't getting me anywhere, so I better just go work on the stuff.Have a great weekend :)

Salut,

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
