Soooo today was. Interesting.

Made brownies, which was nice, though they didn't turn out as well as they can. Not optimal brownies > no brownies, though! I think it was the unsalted butter, too, so I can hopefully avoid that particular fail in the future. Also Mama and I finished the puzzle we were working on, yaaaay!

But also we had dinner at Grandma's with all of that side of the family (except Sibling, who is sick, and sensibly didn't want to bring sick germs into an aged care place. Sometimes Sibling is not in fact an asshole), and. Well.

Family dramaz. )

Wow, that got long. Probably way more than anyone wants to know but fuckit my dw is 90% notes for future me anyway.

Given that it's almost 4am now I'm guessing that tomorrow I'mma stay at home. Maybe do some scanning, depending on how I feel. Emotional burnout: a thing I have avoided thus far and would like to continue to avoid, so yeah, being careful about that.

So, today I was definitely better!

And of course it was a day when we went to Grandma's and sorted through things and picked out things we wanted to keep and basically my brain shut down about an hour in via combiation of Too Much Stuff and also Feelings.

Some stuff about that. )

In less annoying news, I found out why Mama and I have been having such a hard time with the puzzle we're doing! THERE WERE STILL PIECES IN THE BOX. Wtf, Mama, why did you not take all the pieces out of the box when you put the rest of the pieces on the table or in bowls? Or at least leave the box open so we knew it still had things??

Yeah, the snow hellscape is about 1000% easier when you actually have access to ALL the pieces, omfg. Who woulda thunk it!!!

Was gonna make brownies tonight but we were out of cocoa, and the supermarket was closed when I got there. :( So will have to finish them tomorrow. (It's annoying though 'cause I already melted the butter and bluuuh.) But still. Brownies, yaaaay!

On the mend

Feeling kinda better today. Not 100%, but I lost the dizziness so I was able to sit up and concentrate way better. I still did shit all, though, because I want this fucking thing dealt with, asap, so yeah.

Lots and lots of clickygames today, basically. I downloaded a bunch of new ones to keep me busy, heh. Not sure I've found anything I'mma stick with, though.

 Well, apparently I have a healthy colon -- for a person of my not so tender years.   My admitting nurse last Friday was a real character; she kept telling me that this would be the best nap I never remembered.....

BoyFriendZ rose to the occasion, and handled Adric wonderfully for the drive home, with a stop at the local Denny's restaurant where I treated both BFZ and Daughter to breakfast.  I had their new 'Greek Omelet' and it was delicious.... mushrooms, black olives, spinach, feta cheese -- it got even tastier when I accidentally dropped a glob of strawberry jam on it!  Granted, I was REEEEEEEALLLLY hungry by then, but seriously: BEST BREAKFAST EVER!!!

Of course, as soon as we got home, all of us crashed into our assorted beds. The Chows were a bit miffed.

This has been a quiet week.  Pastor is out of town again, so we got most of the Sunday bulletin ready ahead of time. The only excitement has been the Boiler Team finally getting the replacement wiring panel for Boiler #1 and installing it, and the Building Maintenance team painting the downstairs bathrooms.  

Is it nap time yet?

Still sick.

Spent most of the day on couches, napping and/or playing clickygames. Though honestly not a lot of clickygames, sigh.

Had a bit of an upswing a couple of hours ago, probably because I made myself some pasta and thus actually had food in me (stomach is being Very Picky at the moment, siiiigh), but am back to feeling like hammered shit right now so who knows how I'll be tomorrow.

Definitely going to go pass out in bed now, though. Ugh, bodies, why.

Sick Day

I feel like crap.

Mainly have slept and read fic today. Hopefully will feel better tomorrow but I'm not going to count on it either. :/

What's up with all the 3.75mm, I mean REALLY.

So today I only scanned one album. But that's fine, because the reason is Mama found all of Grandma's knitting stuff, so we were going through that! This is despite looking for it two or three times before, haha. Oh, Grandma, why was it split up and put in random places. I mean I'm sure it made sense at the time, but seriously why.

Anyway, as well as the inevitable going-through of patterns to sort into 'never going to use, donate' and 'maybe, put away' piles... Holy shit my Grandma had ridiculous amounts of things (not a surprise), and also never threw anything out (kinda a surprise).


Cut for long )

Anyway that was very draining. And also I have a new project to work on - there was a size of straight needles we didn't already have, so I need to make a case for them, and also the DPN needle situation has finally pissed me off enough I'm just going to make fucking cases for them, too. They've been in a case, but, well. It has no labels and also it was pretty slapdashed in construction. It was a good experiment, but I have concluded that I totally failed and the solution I made for the straights is waaaaay more useful. So. >:

Yay, sewing project, I GUESS?? |D;;

I scanned three entire albums today! Pretty pleased with that. :3 And at slightly less than an album/hour, too. :3 :3 :3 :3 (Was definitely helped by some of the albums having smaller photos, so I could fit more on the scanner at once!)

Other than that, not a whole lot. Read an arc in BnHA, which is something. Thus far it hasn't gone to 'fights take multiple volumes' level of shounen manga, which is unusual! I mean, does have the multiple characters = multiple fights thing, but honestly they're still pretty concise, for a shounen manga. Will be interested to see how it goes! :3

And now is naptime! Yay!
