Second Chaos Week

I have another week of disrupted schedules, running around for stuff, and generally being a disorganised loon.

I have a cat getting vaccinations. I have a cat getting desexed. Different cats. I have Mayhem's graduation plus hauling him to a job interview. I have the regular shuffle of Cleaning Days and the chaos of Whatever Is Happening To My Car.

Like, I should be finding out what's going on with my vehicle this week. I hope. If not, I'll have to ring them up and enquire and I HATE ringing people on the phone.

So yeah, I'm not stressing my word count this week, either. Maybe when I find my new normal, I shall get back onto the regular-size contributions. In the meantime, as long as I add something per day, I'm cool.

Also on my schedule is creating flavour texts for Faxephoun, which needs an actual name other than a portmanteau made of "Fantasy Xenophobia Universe". Suggestions welcome.

I've also recently realised I've been slack about providing my patreons with raw story audio to laugh at listen to and that is my bad. Sorry all of y'all. I'll pick up the slack this week.

I need to come up with more music, because I'm certain my podcast listener(s) might be getting sick of the same nine pieces all the time, so... new album by Ellipsis Addiction coming soon?

...for free. On YouTube, belike. I'm not getting my money back from _This is Awkward, so... whatever. Free music, peeps.

It's almost time to wake my little darlings, get dressed, and get on with the general chaos. I should go do that.

Deal with one problem at a time.

Looking forward to chaos

Tomorrow is Game Nite Friday. I am stoked. Mayhem is stoked, but also under orders to keep his virii to himself.

I do not want to catch the Ekka Flu. Those things are arseholes.

Today, with luck, I shall record some tales, since the 5-htp is working to help me maintain a sound night's sleep. On one hand - yay. On the other hand - now I have to find a new time window for recordings and maybe build an improv sound

I forgot to do the Patreon stuff and I have a medical appointment today, but I am ahead on the word count so... yay. Ish.

Mayhem stayed at home, so on top of getting a tooth hole plugged, we got a rattle on with some of the Kitty Kondo(tm) despite the weather.

...and because of the weather, there is mud everywhere. Sigh. It'll sweep up though.

I also managed to break a board by dropping it, so part of my adventures

Overtime Extreme!

We have a complete-ish muddy hole. I have a whole bunch of boards and a PLN on how to mark them, cut them, and notch them according to PLN.

THEN we're in trouble.

If I can get all that sawing business done before tomorrow, we might make some actual firkin progress. Tomorrow, I'm having a tooth drilled. Tomorrow, I have my Beloved home to look after me because of said shenanigans. Tomorrow, we have a chance to leap some progress onto this

Oh, ability to focus, where hast thou gone?

I've run through all my usual means of focussing on the task at hand, and all have... well... failed.

Let's run this through:

  • Listening to vocal podcasts about random stuff: Listening to the random stuff instead of writing
  • Listening to my music collection: Spacing out and reading stuff instead of writing
  • Spacing out and reading stuff or playing games instead of writing
  • Shutting down everything but the work at hand: Re-opening the
