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

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
