Weekend Round Up

Warmer today, going to be even warmer tomorrow.  This is supposed to be the week from hell temperature wise.  Even though it was warmer, at one point it felt nicer outside than it did inside.

I tried to take it easy today.  Pains are kind of getting up there.  Now I get to experience something new.  I’ve had it before, mostly happened when I was living in the South though and only during my cycle.  Yesterday was pretty much the first time that it happened that wasn’t associated with my cycle.  My feet and ankles swelled up some, there was a bit of tingling, and my ankles were light red and a little warm.  They were better by morning, but I’ve felt it trying to come on all afternoon. So I’ve been trying to either elevate my feet or walk around a bit more often.

So I spent the day trying to catch up on some art retreat classes. I also have to, want to go through the Women Unleashed sessions before they expire.  I have missed out on so much without my computer.  My tablet is only capable of so much and my Olde Faithful laptop can’t handle videos.

I want to maybe start to paint the sketch I did from one of the classes earlier, but I really don’t know how much longer I can sit here.  Between my hips, back, neck, and my new fun experience I don’t think it will be for long at all.

I’m behind right now on Camp NaNo.  Not very much, but still.  Behind is behind for me and I don’t like playing catch up.  Add that to my list of goals for the week.

Last of the rooms is almost put back together. Waiting for the rug to finish drying and weighing out where we want things to go.  Then, after that it’s just the little things. Books on shelves, nick-nacks, that sort of thing.  Once that is all complete, pain levels and weather not withstanding I hope to give my room a good going over with the vacuum. Even with doors closed, it’s amazing just how much dry wall dust gets around.

If you’re in the hot zones, do try to stay cool and hydrated.  I know I will be trying to.

Quote Of The Day

I have been mulling things around trying to think of things to blog about.  I have a thought trying to formula and put to words, but I am not there yet.

The temps are creeping up to the triple digits this week.  Yesterday wasn’t too bad, but it was hotter today and will be getting hotter through the week.  Trying to adjust to being heat sensitive is a new thing.  I’m not quite sure how to deal with it. I never used to be like this.  Even last summer I wasn’t this sensitive.  I can only wonder what the cold will be like.

Pain levels are increasing. I’m trying to push through it until everything is finished up, like furniture moved and such.  I don’t know how successful I will be at pushing the limits because I really am feeling it.  I have to, I just can’t sit by not with Momma T having hurt her back a couple weeks back.  She probably shouldn’t even be doing what she is doing either.  But …. again… we have to.

There’s a lot to do around here now that the house is fixed up.  We have a room that needs repainted, there’s a story there. Did I already tell ya’ll?  Before I go and repeat myself, I’ll be sure to check. Just not right now lol.  We have a room that needs to be moved back into.  Still getting the kitchen sorted, the counters end up acting as catch all for stuff to be sorted.  The Momma T’s sewing room needs to be put back to order so she can get to sewing on her mounting project list.  Maybe it’s not a lot of stuff, just a bunch of tedious little things.

So about that quote.  It came across one of my feeds a few days ago, I don’t remember which one I saw it on.  But, it’s by Hannah Gadsby from “Nanette” that is currently available on Netflix.  It really struck me and has been on my mind since.  I hope to watch the show soon.  I found this image on Google.

How powerful is that??

It’s HOT!

I guess I don’t tolerate the heat very well anymore.  Even when I was in Florida, I think I handled it better than this.  Honestly, it’s awful.  Satan’s ass crack hot today and only going to get hotter.  Momma T got a nifty thermometer gadget for her birthday and at one point it said the outside temp was 114.  114! In fucking Idaho!  I called the gadget a liar!

But in all seriousness, I just  can’t handle the heat.  Seems like anything past 85 these days and I feel like I am melting.  Past 90 and I feel like a puddle.  We have all the fans running just about also the water cooler.  Did I mention we don’t have A/C?  I think back to when I was a kid and wonder how I survived the heat.  I sear it didn’t even phase me back then.

We’ve been trying to “move” back into the house.  Tough to do when it’s so hot.  There’s no relief in sight for at least the next two weeks either. So we’ll just have to  take it easy and do what we can.  To make matters worse, neither Mom or I can do a whole lot anyway.  Me with my pains and she hurt her back a couple weeks ago.  We make a fine pair.

I’m whining. I’m sorry.  I get like that when it’s this hot. Think cool thoughts!

Finally Done

Work is finally done!  Now to clean!  There is dry wall dust every where!  We thought we were supposed to have a cleaning crew and steam cleaner come do the carpets.  It’s on the break down sheet. But, it seems doubtful this company that was supposed to do the work will see it done.  All they get is the money, they don’t do any of the actual work.  It’s such bull shit.  If we had only known!  But what’s done is done. We have a roof and a ceiling.  We can start living again.

It’ll be nice to have my computer back.  Much as I love my old faithful here, it’s really slow.  I can’t use it for much more than writing, especially after August when Firefox will no longer support this version of Windows.  That part sucks, even though it is slow I have liked being on it again.

Hoping to sleep a little later tomorrow.  If not later, at least more restful.  Having to get up is one thing, but when your afraid you’ll over sleep and wake up to workers in the house….not so restful.

Supposed to be a hot one tomorrow. Today’s high was only said to be around 77, not sure what it was but tomorrow they are saying 95 or 97 depending on who you believe. Whatever it will be, it will definitely be a hot one!  I’m not a fan of hot.  Is it Fall yet?

Camp NaNo Time & An Update

Camp-2018-Writer-Profile-Photo

Round two of Camp NaNoWriMo is here.  Starting today!  I can’t believe it is already the first day of July!!  Half a year gone, where did the time go??? Six months and I feel like I got not much to show for it.

For this round, I am thinking of trying to write a take two on my April project.  That one didn’t go quite as I planned, even though I won.  I want to be writing a memoir of sorts, but with a fiction element.  One to protect those who I might include and two to give myself some leeway if I can’t remember all the details of something.  I’m only setting my word count to 15,000 because I’m still only on my ancient laptop.

Okay, it’s not ancient. It’s only almost 13 years old 😀 Still runs on Win98. The Firefox update I just did said it would be the last for this OS.  I don’t think I can put Windows 7 on here, nor could I afford to if I found a copy.  So after August, I should only use this for my writing software and not accessing the web.

In other news, the roof is on and shingled. The ceiling has be hung and mudded. The wiring has be addressed. Now we are waiting for them to texture and paint.  We were told we should be done by Wednesday. But I have a feeling that the guy didn’t realize that that’s the 4th.  So my guess is going to be Friday, almost 3 months to the day since it happened.  We will all be glad when it’s finally finished.

Tomorrow they will be here at the too early o’clock. This doesn’t sit well with my body. Not that I sleep late anyway, but it’s a different sleep when you know you have to wake up or else.  It seems to make me sleep super tense and I wake up a lot in between.  I won’t even go into pain flares and new pains.

But it’s almost over.  Then maybe once we can all relax, I can maybe sleep a hair better. Not that I sleep great anyway, but better than this has been.  Just a few more days, finish line is in sight.
