    Urgan Shows Up, Does the Thing

    Pain now vs pain delayed. It's always worse when it's delayed because pain hates to wait. I also banked that my 3 hour "nap" would cover for the upset of hours slept vs the gaping hole of missing half the day's calories if left unaddressed lol.

    It happens, but that's where learning to be a good uke applies, too. Uke is partially responsible for protecting himself. Say what you will about Aikido and their punching game, but a black belt with plenty of cross-training experience would have decked me absentmindedly (I think he might have had a couple beers before rolling into class, or something of similar potency....) had I not had my hand against my face with no space between. If you get casual, you get hit. Can't even trust your superiors to always have pitch-perfect restraint. Of course it sucks the guy got hit and hopefully he's not sporting some interesting colors as a result. Next lesson: how to guard against being kicked in the head!

    2/14/2019 As well as some trace elements.... 武士道 (ぶしどう) Justice/Rectitude Within: Samurai Don't Complain Today was pretty good Without: Giri Shower cleaning - 7/28 Nighttime teethbrushing - 11/28 Bring in parents' dumpster - 2/4 Do work online training - 6/18 Haul off donations Buy a better paper shredder Clean kitchen table Clean shower Clean toilet Clean sinks Clean kitchen counters Mop floor Investigate laptop heating issue Find storage space for cat supplies Courage Within: Belt Test is a Battlefield - Without: Keep heizen and carry on Gun purchase Instacart-type grocery services Getting recalled airbags fixed New kitchen chairs Learning first-aid Nutrition 2400 Calories. 2298 : 2180 Aikido Jo. 4/10 Tech Review. 7/16 That feel when you sleep from 8 to 11:30 and have eat an unreasonable amount of chocolate to clear the 2000 calorie mark. SIGH. Cramming down sausage and beans + M&Ms = WAKE UP BOWELS WE'RE ALIVE. Romantic AF, huh? This turn of events meant squeezing the Value out of every minute so I did not stay up longer than I had a choice in the matter. Japanese, Aikido, dinner + post-dinner chocolate-to-the-point-of-disgust, and winding down all smashed down into about an hour. I just did jo work, as I was rapidly losing the will to live. Forgot to spray down the shower. * runs screaming toward the weekend *

    To be fair, pets are fluffy. Some of them purr. If there was nothing forcing me to leave the house to make a living, I would not do so well at getting up, either.

    2/13/2019 Free training day 武士道 (ぶしどう) Justice/Rectitude Within: Samurai Don't Complain Grocery runs to the downtown Publix Without: Giri Shower cleaning - 7/28 Nighttime teethbrushing - 10/28 Bring in parents' dumpster - 2/4 Do work online training - 5/18 Haul off donations Buy a better paper shredder Clean kitchen table Clean shower Clean toilet Clean sinks Clean kitchen counters Mop floor Investigate laptop heating issue Find storage space for cat supplies Courage Within: Belt Test is a Battlefield Two of my associates are also gearing up to test, so there were some feels shared there Without: Keep heizen and carry on Gun purchase Instacart-type grocery services Getting recalled airbags fixed New kitchen chairs Learning first-aid Nutrition 2400 Calories. 2337 : 2290 Aikido Jo. 3/10 Tech Review. 7/16 First, the downtown Publix makes me feel incompetent and makes me vent in all directions--I have identified an cashier to avoid going forward. I went there for a Valentine's present and came out with 5 additional bottles of kombucha and a small tin of tuna that looks a lot like fancy cat food but presumably isn't. Second, because it was free training time and other people are going to be testing March 13th, we went over most of the techniques. Because I've been scrutinizing them a bit longer with testing in mind, I was able to "lead" the other blue belts in several of them as a refresher. UNLIMITED POWER. This presented an interesting challenge to reviewing at home. I decided to split the baby and review all of them again except the weapons work lol. Because that made sense. Third, for going to the grocery store and having access to anything in the whole wide world, I managed to set myself up to chase calories after getting home. So after setting up the Valentine's presents for my husband to find the next morning, I did Japanese practice and then ate half a can of olives, two beef hot dogs, and a protein bar. As you do. Still managed to turn the light off before midnight because Exhausted. I turned off the romanized help so now we're in the deep water of the hiragana I am not sure of and the kanji I know I don't know lol. PLZ TO SEEP INTO MY BRAIN NAO, 日本. All the money, in all the worlds, real and imagined, cannot balance out with the peace of not having to deal with this anymore.
  6. I wanted to like it, I really did--was hype specifically because of C.S. Lewis. Tried to. But they totally mixed the sugar and chalk bins up in the kitchen. Would try it again from another place, because it was a hot minute since I tasted it last.
  7. Which is why anything with any sugar content or any other kind of flavor at all would have been a greater temptation, seems like. Heck a sugar cube would have done the trick, it's square..... OTOH, extra petty to make it bad candy. I'm of two minds lol.
  8. PLEASE BE MORE SPECIFIC this is dangerously vague wording, I tell you.... Again with the tempting fate...but I feel you on the sleep and the weekend is Soon. But hey, incoming long weekend is long and that is the best kind. You know, I would never have condoned it, but I sort of almost understood where Edmund was coming from when I originally read the books as a child. Then I tried Turkish Delight and just...wow. You betrayed your friends and by extension an entire kingdom for an extra-chalky, flavorless, illegitimate child of a fig newton and a Starburst. Well done.

    TFW you only do pushups as warmup for Aikido dojo time because Screw Pushups With a Rusty Rake, and then you get complimented on your form. Must not be a common movement in their arsenal. Sounds like a great place to train to me lol. How does it feel to have Clean House status? I think of it like the Well Rested status in Fallout, only moreso.

    More like Investigation Discovery....or national news perhaps. Depending on how creative we decide to get. ....and an actual doctor of psychiatry would be more useful. Just so the world can finally learn WTF is wrong with this person. I am convinced we would not be the only interested parties.

    I can understand this. On the one hand, I am what many would describe as a neat freak and everything has its place or the world may literally stop turning. OTOH, I cannot comprehend a lifestyle where you wholesale abandon useful stuff when moving from place to place unless it was slowly coming apart or you are dramatically downsizing. Occasional/regular decluttering is one thing, whole new everything is a different story. I'm just too sentimental for that. Sorry your sleep is erratic to nonexistent. That alone can really mess with your head.

    2/12/2019 Balls 武士道 (ぶしどう) Justice/Rectitude Within: Samurai Don't Complain Better than Monday's performance, at least. Without: Giri Shower cleaning - 6/28 Nighttime teethbrushing - 9/28 Bring in parents' dumpster - 1/4 Do work online training - 4/18 Haul off donations Buy a better paper shredder Clean kitchen table Clean shower Clean toilet Clean sinks Clean kitchen counters Mop floor Investigate laptop heating issue Find storage space for cat supplies Courage Within: Belt Test is a Battlefield I am definitely starting to confront the Entire Roster of techniques now. Itching to run through both right and left sides on the mat. Without: Keep heizen and carry on Gun purchase Instacart-type grocery services Getting recalled airbags fixed New kitchen chairs Learning first-aid Nutrition 2400 Calories. 2361 : 2388 Aikido Jo. 3/10 Tech Review. 6/16 Tuesday was about catching up to the fallout of Sunday's poor life choice. Didn't do horribly at that. Sunday paid me back with fish dinner I didn't have to cook, so I could catch 2 hours of sleep with no repercussions. Husband came home early with sinus problems, so he was napping at least as much as I. Still managed to hit my Japanese study, Aikido review, prep for the following day's shenanigans, and turn the lights off before midnight. #juggling #thecircusisintown Two titans of asshattery combined houses when these people got married. Like gasoline and a box of matches. Literally from that moment on, they have been an emotional and financial hole down which to vainly throw resources. The only return you can expect is to be kicked in the teeth and criticized on the shape and former positioning of said teeth. They would have grown them differently. We are so, so very close to the end of the line and it is worth losing a great deal of the potential full worth of the property to take this deal because you cannot put a price tag on emotional abuse. We suspect they are very litigious and capable of money laundering to pair off with their fluent lying. Not surprisingly, due to being unable to sustain a living like a normal family, they are perpetually in a monetary bind and we think that is why they are coming to the table now vs a year ago. Please pray we make it without anyone saying anything too Accurate or spontaneously committing homicide.
