Adventure Week’s quiet finale

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

Time for a quiet recovery day to finish out Adventure Week. (Much needed, since my leg muscles all woke up saying ‘we did a week’s worth of work in the last two days, so don’t expect much till next Monday.’) Today’s main goal is to get my photos transferred off my phone. That seems manageable, […]

hike achieved!

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

Spent two excellent days hiking, managed not to hurt myself any more than a bruise where my pack shoulder strap rubs my collarbone. No rain = success at a higher level than anyone expected! The things I apparently think are most important to do upon the return from said trip: 1. Hang up anything wet; […]

time to hike!

This is pretty much how my brain always works when I’m doing something (anything, really, but it’s much more noticeable when it’s something new): 1. “Oh yeah, I got this.” 2. “Definitely don’t have this. What was I thinking?” 3. “This is going to be awesome!” 4. “AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!” 5. repeat, on infinite loop I mean, […]

Adventure Week rolls on — it’s not really a week in terms of matching up with a calendar week, but it started yesterday and goes through Wednesday, and calling it Adventure Week sounds cooler than ‘five consecutive days of doing stuff.’ Day 1: Bounce House Obstacle Course 5K (it’s actually called the “insane inflatable 5K,” […]

You know when your feet hurt, and you think ‘do I need to rest them, or do I need to move them?’ And then you maybe do some googling, and you think ‘okay, so either I’m fine, or I’m dying, thanks a lot, google.’ And then maybe there’s some more googling, and you maybe try […]

Apparently I’m in a very non-committal space right now, because I keep reading things and not bookmarking them. So I went checking back to see if I’d ever recced to dwell is to die, by FeoplePeel Quill’s Guardians are a group of reformed criminals at best; save the literal empath they’ve recently outfitted themselves with, […]

Last night I dreamed that someone told me I’m awesome. Thanks, dream friend! Of course, I also dreamed that someone dressed my cat up in a shark costume as part of a Sea World-type water show. What’s up with that, brain? (Not my cat, or my dream!cat. But a happy pallas cat is a good […]

workaday Wednesday

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017

Ooh, I sure was getting riled up yesterday! Our technology at work isn’t perfect, which is often frustrating but also understandable, if you start with the basic foundation that things generally aren’t. So I figure the problem-solving steps work for tech as well as anything else. Once you’ve tried ignoring it to see if it […]

My adulting chore of the day: lubricate the treadmill belt. Thank goodness for youtube videos, or I’d have no idea whatsoever how to follow the laughably vague directions that came with the machine. Why lubricate the treadmill belt? 1. It’s easier and faster than actually using the treadmill, but still makes you feel as if […]
