No, not like that.
Last Friday, I scalded my hand with pho broth. I did something I've never done with a burn before. I went to the Internet and learned about cool compresses. I quickly slapped one of those on. A friend said not to do it longer than 20 minutes per advice from a nurse he knows. This was the best thing I've ever done for a burn. The stinging was far less than usual. The next day, there was barely redness or stinging and I could work around the house as long as I was a bit gentle and didn't get too warm. I was able to start my office paint job. But I've been tired, so it's not done yet. I did clean my desk up when my monitor stand came though. Having a clean desk has helped my mood.
Fast forward a week and...
My bathroom wall has been fixed! Well, the side I don't own. There's work ahead, but I can at least wash myself in my own home now! And an area that we thought would surely have mold, didn't. Finally a lucky turn on this project. I have nearly everything else on order to finish it (except screws) and I've taken long weekends for the rest of the month to get my home projects done.
I was really tired after I took my first bath. All the stress from it made me pretty emotional. It's been a tough year with the pandemic and it was made tougher with this bathroom problem. Soon I'll be able to have my home set up properly rather than having bits of my bathroom in every room. I have about ten boxes and two small tables to bring to donation, which will certainly help with this.
I've been having an issue with my one art print not fitting right in the frame. It's a very large print, so it's taking up a lot of space on my floor right now. The print is smaller than the frame by a bit. I don't know why, but it wasn't until I decided to sleep in this morning that I could actually figure out what to do about it. It's a metal frame, so I should be able to shorten it to make it fit right. After I get this done, I should be close to having my martial arts practice space back.
With all this going on, I haven't been able to do much in the way of martial arts, writing, or music. I'm looking forward to getting back to all of my passions very soon!
