I don't like things that glow in the dark

I'm fading. Today was a real ass kicker. Turned only one room, but also did a lot of crouching and moving (dusting all the floorboards) and cleaned all the floors and did the office and some watering. I don't know why it was so totally killer but that last bit with the floorboards really just took everything out of me. Also I kept waking up in my sleep for no reason (maybe eagles woke me up?)

But I'm also *whispers* menstruating. So that might be affecting my body. I think we are all adults here and as a member of half the population that does that thing, I should be free to talk about it. Why is it so hush hush?

Anyhoodles, I'm more than ready to crawl into bed now. Also I went food shopping. Tomorrow I'm making pulled pork from BT's recipe. I'll be having pulled pork sandwiches for the next few days. Yay protein!! yay a break from PB&J!

hair tips!!

 Yesterday wiped me out so I just went to bed. Still drew! Make sure you follow me on instagram to see the comics, cuz I tent to post them there first.

I turned three rooms with time to spare, and breakfast shift was really easy so that got done in good time. Well not EASY just not many people and they were all spaced out. With my extra time I refilled some spray bottles and ironed some napkins. We sanitize the counters everyday after breakfast, so I put back all the things that were taken off the counters.

After work I topped off my tank, and put a letter in the mail, and got a meal from the Halfway House because I'm low on food and felt lazy. The meal covered me for the rest of the day and part of today, so yup.

I've been listening to a lot of the Judge John Hodgman podcast, it's pretty good.
I don't think I like day on, day off scheduling. It's good for not leaving me totally exhausted but it also makes wanting to leave the house on a day off a non starter. So today I relaxed, played some FTL (thanks Natey!), drew, watched telly, ate food. I'll be working a more usual schedule in a couple days. It goes all over the place, which is good because nothing is ever constant.

Paid PUD. Nice to have the moneys to pay bills within a day or two of them coming in. Just gotta be tight on the purse strings for six days and I'll be good. No unnecessary boat buying.

Speaking of consumerism! I called Swatch and they said they can't fix the watch due to it being sealed and all that but if I sent it in, I'd get a 30% off coupon for the Swatch store, so I could buy the watch from Swatch and get all the proof of purchase documentation warranty stuff for the same price as it is on Amazon (where it is, outside of eBay) the lowest price. Oh! The battery I have Dad (I put it in my miniature Ark of the Covenant) is an Energizer size 392/384.

There's pictures of me wearing that watch in Japan, so it's gotten ten plus years of wear. And the Swatch lady I talked to on the phone knew exactly the watch I was talking about when I said Chessboard. I didn't even have to give her model number.

This watch saga sure is going on and on.

Zine Fests Rule!

Woke up at 7, like a good person. Dozed off. Woke up. Dozed again. Lay awake in bed till noon. My tired body has earned a good horizontal lay down, and I'm still tired at 10.

I think I shouldn't have done all that gardening and cleaning on my last day off.

Today I played computer games, ate carbs, farted around on the internet,

Oh! I also went down to the post office and mailed my monitor rebate and letter of confirmation of my friend's relationship. She is getting some international visa thing and needs people to write saying they saw them be a couple.

And my electric bill came and it was higher than it ought, but I guess I have been generous with my heaters since I realized the bill was lower than usual. But not bad higher!

worn down

So yesterday I was on laundry, which means up and down up and down and hauling and folding and timing. Did three beds, a bunch of towels, stripped two other beds... and this was after breakfast. Though it was a lighter breakfast shift, with lots of 30 second breaks to find this and that to do. Not the rush to wash and wash and dry and fill up the machine and empty it that other breakfast shifts have been. So breakfast and then into laundry. VERY tiring, but hey...it's good cardio.

And at the end of the shift I hustled down the Taylor stairs to catch the 2:30 showing of Midnight Special. The bosses gave me a thank you gift certificate for The Rose so I spent that on the ticket and some popcorn and a hard Finnriver cider because damnit I earned it!

Midnight Special was an odd little movie and I liked it a whole bunch. It didn't overdo it with the more supernatural elements and it was great the way the parental roles switched back and forth. Excellent performances all around with a special note to Adam Driver. Yeah. Good little film indeed. I hauled my tired self up the stairs, drove home no problem, and was well tired for the rest of the day. Still drew.

Today was an empty Inn though I'm sure planned that way as a deep clean is starting on one of the rooms. Nice to have it lighter when we are deep cleaning. I was dragging all day. Seemed like it took extra long to turn just two rooms! And I did the floors and flower water and started on a few items in the deep clean room. It was a full shift but it felt like I should have gotten done with more. But I also did some laundry and folding.

Got a letter from Anita. She's so great. She's engaged to Dan! I stayed with them in Delaware, remember? And Anita has visited Pulali. She gave me that awesome illustrated tide guide.

I worked on some of the things I need to get done. I'm mailing a proof of relationship letter to my friends in Ireland. The ones I stayed with in Toronto. Basically "I have witness these two together" type anecdotal document letter. And I'm sending off my rebate for my monitor. It's an 8-10 week wait to get it back!! And so much effort. I guess that's how they get people to not do rebates. But it'll be nice to get it in the mail come...uhh... June? July?

Now I'm back to being tired so I think I'll go to bed now.
