I'm Exhausted

A 12-post collection

Saturday, Parkrun, Sore Feet, and Very Tired

I messed up parkrun by getting my wires crossed and finishing before I did the full 5K. Unfamiliar course, already sore and tired. Not inclined to remedy my mistake.

So now I have a Fake Personal Best(tm).

My bad.

We went thereafter to the West End Markets, and I'm glad to see that West End is still a melting pot despite the efforts of Yuppies and Gentrification. Lots of cultural exchange going on.

I am very footsore and very weary. So I shall be taking a nap.

Offerings when I can summon the energy.

Thursday, A Little Catch-up, and Listlessness

I'm already on low-batt status and I haven't started my daily shenanigans. I have some corrections to make for the background of my game boards. I mistook construction pieces for whole elements and that was my mistake to correct.

I'll be doing that after I make my offerings today.

I've taken my preventer in case this is an oxygen problem - and no it isn't. I'm still feeling like I'm operating under 1.5G's and that's the trial du jour.

And at

Saturday, Parkrun and Pooped

My feet hate me. My knees hate me. I still managed to make it. It was wet as all get-out and Miss Chaos and I needed dry socks after the thing.

I had entertained the idea of wearing my beach shoes when it's that wet, but my feet would never forgive me for doing that. Drat it.

If I wanted to do all my self-maintenance, I'd have to wake up at two in the morning. I just can't do that, so I

Thursday, Head Above Water

I am not allowed to feel bad about only getting one side-project contributed to during yesterday. I am not allowed to feel invisible or under-appreciated because I get no comments on my works.

I am allowed to keep on trying.

I am allowed to be kind to myself and do things that make me feel good about myself.

BUT... I also have to go out and get fresh sets of supplies because things are running out or things have gone off.

Saturday, Parkrun and Pooped

I think I got some good exercise in despite the depredations of Sneezin' and Wheezin' Season plus my knees trying to sabotage me. It was a good walk through the Chermside Parkrun, and probably just as well.

Temperatures today SUCK.

Which is why I plan on doing little more strenuous than getting my output done and then slobbing off for the remainder of the day. I might get some set dressing done, but I doubt it.

I got another chapter in the

Saturday, Unfucking and SUMMER!

It is PUNISHING hot out there, so I'm waiting for sunset before I tackle the catio. I just about boiled to death during the bus watch this morning. Blargh.

Heat had me dizzy during stream this morning and I may estivate so that I can actually have the energy for such this afternoon.

I still have to work on the 2K summary of Adapting and I really don't want to face that now.

Stupid hot weather has me all woobly.

At least

Long Monday, the Exhaustening

It's been a fun game, not gonna lie. My players thought they could fill in an entire hour with faffing about, then decided to try sneaking up to the Dragon and then...

They didn't have a fucking plan of attack.

They have a week to think of one whilst I decide on the resolution to the cliffhanger.

I shall do my story stream, then waken the rest of my house before catching what nap I can before the TaleFoundry readings.

My voice

::Cracks Knuckles:: Okay. I've got this.

We're back up to nine days of a plague-free Queensland. So I should, in theory, be back to writing in my novel. Right?

I dunno. I can certainly try.

When I'm done with today's Instant, I can load up that one file and my self-amusement file [which is nearly done] and see which one wins the day. I'm putting my bet on the self-amusement because I'd much rather watch a character discover acceptance on the worst day of their life than do

Understandably Late Start

I got a parcel in the afternoon, when I was up to my eyeballs in a fictional international misunderstanding.

By the time I had my fecal matter gathered for the afternoon, I was too wasted to go anywhere or do anything because stress can fuck your life up in unexpected ways. Huzzah.

I initially had PLNs to go when Beloved came home, or get them to drive me, but those disintegrated because of a real misunderstanding involving steak, cooking times, and a

OMG it's too late

I tried asking. I tried explaining. I tried flat-out telling my Beloved to do the thing.


Just WON'T.


Unfuck the garage.

I told them, because the cleaning company told me, that any extra time on the unfuckening in there would end up costing us more than the usual. I did not tell Beloved that I'd already taken money out of the other bank account to cover the cost of tomorrow.

Maybe I should have. I still have today. So does

My Da always used to say, "Nothing succeeds like a toothless budgie," and none of us could stop him. Well, the much-gassed-about nommables recipe is technically a success. In that Beloved likes them.

It is NOT a success for my energy levels.

Today's recipe is... well...



But never fear, dear readers, I shall document how this absolute disaster unfolded and what I plan to do to make it better next time.
