Merry Monday - Getting Things Done

[caption id="attachment_4711" align="alignright" width="300"]merry_monday Image created using Bit Strips.[/caption]

I've been pretty exhausted since the pre-orientation day at school. It was a lot of walking. I think the first couple of weeks are going to be tough for me. There's a line where the right amount of exercise reduces my fatigue and if I cross it, I end up extra tired for days. Extra tired as in I feel like the world is wrapped in cheesecloth (or maybe I am) and only some parts seep in. Of course, that line is like an invisible moving target, but it is what it is. Martial arts was rough yesterday.

I've been spending time going through my things to reduce where I can. As I wash clothing, I decide whether or not to keep it before folding it. I've been reducing my jewelry. I don't wear much of it anyway.

I got the last kitchen drawer bottom cut on Friday. The next step is hand planing it to the right thickness for the slot. Not today though. I'm too sore from martial arts.

Things are coming together slowly.

I'm also working on my novel, of course.

I've already begun reading ahead for school.

The VMAs were a horrible waste of my time last night. They cut off Linkin Park's performance which was in tribute to their lost band mate. They cut to commercial at the worst possible time they could have. Yet, Miley's performance was unobstructed. They had no problems letting Katy Perry's boring host blathering be heard by the audience at home, but a performance by Linkin Park had to be cut off. I seriously doubt I'll ever bother with the VMAs again.

Anyway, today is supposed to be about positivity. It's a beautifully sunny day here in Ottawa. The neighbour's dog isn't barking. It's Monday, so I have a bunch of time to get things done before another weekend is upon me. The hardest challenge I have this week involves getting my storage area reconfigured so I can store my winter tires in it. I only have two tires in Ottawa right now as my car can only hold two of them. I have a trolley, so I'm not so worried about getting them from the car to the storage area.

Anyway, I should think about lunch and dinner too.

Oh, I also need to do some reading.

Looks like a mostly easy week before September comes.

Guid cheerio the nou,

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.
