Sideways!

Today promises to be some kind of fun.

1) Worming the cats
2) Acquiring new upright freezer
3) Unfuckening the house
4) Chaos is back to school, and I didn't get notified about when the bus arriveth

So far:

1) The cats are sequestered with doped foodstuffs in separate rooms... and objecting.
2) It's already half an hour into the time window the freezer people gave us for them to arrive and install [6:30 AM to 10:30 AM] but we have got the old freezer out of its niche and into an open area, also cleaned out the nasties from said niche.
3) All things will occur in due course, but the house is a mess because meal preps.
4) I am camped in the front room and awaiting any sign of bus arrival.

So. Yeah. I'm a busy 'Nutter, today.

Somewhere in all this chaos, I also have to do a Money Run so the cleaner gets paid, and I can acquire tasty victuals. During meal preps, I had WAY too much meats and not enough veg, so today's excursions are going to include more forays for keto-friendly vegetation. And stuff to make Cauli Mash because that S be awesome.

For now? I attempt to work.

Once again, I got my approach to organisation catty-corner, and did NOT focus on telling y'all about my alleged life before getting rolling on today's Instant.

Which, by the way, tips more than a hat-rack at The Adventure Zone. Spoilers if you haven't listened through.

Listen through, btw. It's full of dick jokes and cussing, but it's funny as hell and you WILL cry. It's one hell of a ride.

Ahem.

Today's plans involve pickling more strawberries and teaching my Beloved to

I'm Sorry For the Mess

Yesterday, as things are wont to do, things went completely do-lally because I've been fretting about MeMum's health.

The good news is that Mum's been tested and found not showing any signs of Senior Dementia. Halleluja. I've also seen signs that Mum's Vaguely-Waving-At-the-Mediterranean-From-Very-Far-Away Diet is actually working for her, so far. MeMum and I are keeping a weather eye on her triglyceride levels, and I know what to do to help IF mum wants said help.

We also both forgot to ask

So let's recap:

  • I forgot to post yesterday's Instant on Tumblr
  • Nobody noticed
  • I spent so much energy fetching the ingredients for the proposed noms that I had zero energy to actually make said noms
  • I had trouble going to sleep last night
  • I had trouble staying asleep last night
  • I woke up tired
  • And the process of making myself make those noms meant that I missed out on most of my morning activity. Including my daily walk and dog-annoying.

I have
