Merry Monday - New Toys

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

I have received a new toy, well, it's more of a medical device, but it's like a toy for my neck because it brings feelings of not pain. It's this dense foam wedge that I put under my neck for 10 minutes and after one use, I already feel loads better without pain killers. It wasn't fun to use as it's not entirely comfortable to put a bulging disc against it, but after a bit I began to feel things I didn't expect like a reduction in abdominal discomfort and reduced jaw tension. What a wonderful tool! It's called the Posture Wedge.

I never thought a bunch of my problems could be connected to my neck and posture. It was after I hurt my neck the first time that things like food allergies and teeth grinding began to appear in my life. What if the inflammation in my body is in part because of this one thing? Seems crazy. I'm not going to get my hopes up, but I'll definitely keep using the thing and see what happens.

My MS Surface 3 is supposed to come sometime this week. They estimate Friday. I hope it comes sooner, so I can get it set up and stop lugging a heavy bag around.

I'm not bringing much with me today. I think it's a good idea to use my phone and a small notebook rather than lug a heavy laptop around. It'll give my neck a break. I wonder if I can try this all this week? I should check with my other teachers.

My parents dug out our old LEGOs for me. I need to figure out how to clean them, but I have a much larger collection now. Not that I have anytime to play with them anyway, but I'm looking forward to it eventually.

Part of my Halloween costume is here. The rest I have to make. If I can ever get the time to...

I snagged an old Walkman from my mom on the weekend to use because I have a couple of books on cassette that I'd like to listen to on the bus at some point from now until Christmas.

Anyway, I need to go learn stuff about writing plays.

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.
