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.

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.
