ROW80 2020 R1-2

I'm enjoying blogging again now that I've returned to Blogger. I can just write a post and choose to bold a few words or make some links without it being cumbersome. And I don't miss having both tags and categories. Having just tags is simpler. Sometimes I feel like this world has gotten feature heavy.

I was able to get the vast majority of my posts automatically moved over. I cleaned up the tags. There are a few decisions to make, but largely I'm happy with it. The missing posts are all from 2019 as far as I can tell. I'll be slowly manually copying them over soon. Otherwise, I need to tweak my Poetry section. I think I can link to the tag. Right now, a lot of the poems were pages rather than posts, so I have a little work to do to have it all working how I envision.

FITNESS
I really enjoyed Iaido last Sunday. Class was cancelled today due to the amount of ice everywhere that has been covered with snow. Given how the rest of my week was, I'm not upset about it. And it gave me time to do some workout pages. My original plan wasn't working, so I'm just going to do Rushfit. It tells me what to do everyday like a trainer would.

FRENCH
I'm going to pause on this goal until the temp who will be taking care of my main role at work while I cover a colleague's maternity leave arrives and is decently trained up. I just don't have the bandwidth right now. Hopefully this happens soon.

HOME
I have gotten rid of a mirrored bathroom cabinet. It was the wrong size and too bulky for my needs. I'll be replacing it eventually, but there is no rush on anything there as I have another to purge and a vanity to demolish. Otherwise, I've been doing pretty well at my chores. I haven't always been doing them on the days I set, but I'm getting them done. I created a section in my planner for this too.

PIANO
I haven't played this weekend, but I had a packed weekend between D&D and a friend's birthday. I've also been pretty emotionally spent.

SELF-CARE
I started trying to learn crochet again. It didn't go well, but I had an epiphany and think I know why. I may actually be able to start crocheting sometime this year. Planning is going well and a friend gave me some pages to try out as some of the ones that came with mine aren't my favourite. A number of them are really cute and I've made some trackers with them. I'm reading daily inspirational quotes and 365 Tao.

WRITING
Writing is slow but at least it's moving forward.

Sparks: 75,091/80,000 words
The Mockumentary: 11/120 pages

  1. Sparks does seem to be coming around. You're so close to your word goal!
    You seem to be in control of your goals, which is an achievement per se. Yay!

    1. One baby step at a time. It feels so slow some days, but I have to remind myself that my day job is kind of demanding right now.

  2. Some people just love Blogger. It's good that there are all sorts of online tools for all sorts of people out there, eh? :-)

    It sounds ike you're making steady strides. Just keep doing what you are. You'll get there.

    1. I think the only thing I'm struggling with for it is the comment management. It's hard to tell if I've already responded to a comment. They don't appear as read or unread. Maybe there is a setting somewhere that can help me with it.

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. 
R.I.P. #10.

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.
