Approaching a Rest - ROW80 2020 R1-9

Outside of work, today was focused on the future. I proposed some things, prepared others, and am looking forward to some plans. I'm on vacation next week and I'm looking forward to that break. I'll be off until the 18th and I plan to get some things done around the house. 

Regarding the house, I've realized that if I ever move, I don't want an open concept place. Stuff migrates too easily in the absence of layout. 

Anyway, I had a good financial appointment today and I'm looking forward to what comes next.

We're supposed to have another snowstorm tomorrow. Hopefully it doesn't mess up all my plans!

FITNESS

I have a hurt knee right now, so I'm not doing a lot right now on that front, though I did some martial art theory yesterday. I think it's an alignment issue as new insoles seem to help a lot. More than I would have thought they ever could.

HOME

I've been planning out home things to do with my time off including starting the bathroom demolition. I'm planning a little change in my bedroom as well though that'll be weather dependent.

My basil is sprouting!



SELF-CARE

I've been gaming a little more, which makes my stress levels lower. I've also got the ball rolling with a new dentist.

WRITING

I've jumped up quite a bit. I blame the addition of a monitor. My screen is double the size. I should have done this a long time ago.

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.
