  1. Thanks guys. <3 That's an awesome WW gif, @Jonesy I did talk with my doctor today. It was a good talk and we're going to address things, so I think things will be swinging upward soon. Plus, she had me get an xray of my hands and my knee to make sure I'm not dealing with bone issues in my joints and that it's just connective/soft tissue stuff, so there's that too. In other news, I put our old house up for sale last Wednesday and got an offer on Saturday for more than we were asking, so that's happening! For the challenge: PT gets a solid C. Did some, could have and should have done more, but did some, so that's better than none. I definitely A+ drank enough water the week I was sick, but C- the rest of the time. >.> Walking is a B-. I didn't do any real walking at the parks in town, but I did a buttload in my old town the one day my car was in the shop (the day I put the house up for sale) and I've gone out of town to the mall which had lots of walking going on. There were other smaller walks, but nothing spectacular enough to mention. I don't have anything to show off for creativity, but I think I get a B for this one too - but only thanks to @tourennatrix because she's been creating all over the place and we've been collaborating on some stuff that's pretty awesome. So, not too bad, I guess, especially given the emotional everything. Imma give me a hug because I deserve it. *hugme*
  2. Hope you're over your pre-con-crud well enough to not get the after-con-crud!! Have fun and know that I'm jealous and wish I could go!
  3. Hey, me too! I've got the "upper-respiratory-so-I-sound-like-Stevie-Nicks" cold going on! Whoop, whoop! Love that kitty is draped over cat and neither one cares. <3
  4. I haven't been doing a great job using my bujo to track my challenge. I'm having desk issues related to a bad resin job and a baby that likes to get into every thing, so every thing ends up on top of my desk. Those are the main reasons. Other reasons are more emotional. I've been having a lot of emotions. Not sure how much are hormonal because, hello shark week. *sigh* Emotional crap: Good things, because I always try to remind myself about the good things when I feel like crap: Yesterday, I fit into another, smaller pair of jeans I couldn't fit into last May, so that's a thing. This is making me feel a little better for this upcoming fall/winter time period because I may not need to buy new pants to wear in order to leave the house. My sister and I have been collaborating on art stuff and that makes me feel good This guy: Challenge stuff: I *have* been on a few walks. I am drinking *some/more* water each day, but I am not meeting the goals I would like to. I have been doing my PT, just need to keep up on it. I think the only thing I have going for me is the creativity one, which given the emotional bullcrap is actually surprising - it's good this one dovetails into the project I'm working on with my sister.
  5. Yeah... I don't know if you used to be able to do this in Illustrator a long time ago or not, but because it works in shapes and fills, the colors are tied directly to the shapes created and the only way to put them on separate layers is to duplicate the linework onto new layers with one layer containing the lines and the other the colors (using the same shape containers) and then you just end up with a bunch of extra layers you don't really need, a big mess, and a large file. Not saying there *isn't* a way to do it, just that I'm not familiar with one. :/ Photoshop is infinitely easier when it comes to that particular aspect.
  6. Duh! Yesterday, I took peanut to the library and he had So. Much. Fun. This was his first real outing being around other kids and it was a lot of fun watching him around other kids. Then when we got home, he fell asleep while eating his lunch. It was so adorbs. While he was napping, the plumbers came by unexpectedly to work on the repair which was fine and he slept through most of it, so that was also good. Today, I took him to the park (two actually... kind of disappointed in toddler sized playground equipment here in new-town...) but he got to swing and play in wood chips, so he had some fun, then I went on a 1/2 mile walk, so I got that in today too. Still fighting with my knee. Strangely, it felt ok walking, but it hurts like a bitch after I've been sitting for a while, or when I sleep, and doesn't seem to matter the position (or rather, it will hurt *more* in certain positions, but always hurts regardless). Doing my PT and hoping it'll help the more I do it. It's gonna have to do for a while since I can't go back to PT for a while what with the unexpected plumbing costs. Anywho. The past couple of days, knee notwithstanding, have been pretty good. Need to keep it up.
  7. And here's the bujo page! Just occurred to me that this is just one week... Imma gonna have to come up with equally awesome things to draw for the next 3. o.o I guess that's part of why I have "create" on there, huh?
  8. I shall do this once I've had the chance to wash my hair (which didn't happen after the bath last night because of aforementioned plumbing issues). Probably not in costume, though.
  9. Where's the bonuses for cat pictures posted? This actually looks like a neat format. I may steal sometime.
  10. Bath was great! But the stupidness continued. As I drained the tub, the sewer drain in the basement said "nope! don't want it, you can have it back!" /sigh But, but. Called the plumber this morning, they were available fairly quickly and it was just tree roots (which won't be an uncommon issue since we have two fairly massive oaks between the house and the street), and it wasn't super expensive. But, but, but, our stack pipe from the main floor toilet also has a small leak, which is not good. We have a tentative quote which is more expensive, but this isn't something husband can fix himself and it is something that needs fixed. So. There's that. /sigh Today, so far, I've left the house, which was good and, I think helped bebe finally take a good nap (yay!), supported daughter while she talked to the school about financial aid and books and start of classes and stuff, bought groceries, and just about everything *not* on my challenge. I also put a couple of reminders of some recurring activities that go on at the local library for children bebe's age (or thereabouts) to take him to. He needs kid exposure and, since I can't yet sign up for the Y, this will be a good way to do that that doesn't also cost money. (kinda triggers a bit of anxiety about being around stranger peoples and kids and strange situations and stuff, but nothing I won't be able to deal with once the "anticipation" part is past and the "doing" is happening) Going to spend a bit of time finishing up my bujo so I can actually, ya know, use it this week... and go from there for the rest of the day. (Also, I love how the weather's cooperating with my plan to add in walking since it's so freaking humid out right now. THANKS FOR THAT, WEATHER!)
  11. Well, today was kind of a shite day. I did some PT, but not for my knee. For my back/shoulders instead, so I'm counting it. I'm drinking my water. And I sketched out my bujo and then drew a goofy sketch that wasn't all that great of a red panda. I mean, it was ok, but I wasn't really feeling createy... I was just trying to find something to do while rocking my son so he would hopefully fall asleep for his nap (which *never happened ever today...*). Didn't get a walk in. It was rainy this morning and in the afternoon when husband wanted to go out with the bebe, I just wanted a break from the bebe, so they went out together and I had some quiet and time to sweep. Then, after husband got off work, I had planned to go for a walk or run or something to get out and get another break (it was a *really* rough day) but husband hasn't been feeling well, bebe had been onery all day, and husband ended up spending the time replacing an outlet for me and my office space which meant I needed to observe and contain bebe. Long, long, day. But, I think bebe is finally going to sleep so in a few minutes, he will be in his bed and I am going to take a fizzy bath bomb bath and just forget about today and it's stupidness.
  12. hi you! I giggled at"it's august! it's hectic!" because I have yet to see one of your challenges where it's *not* hectic. Good luck with all the things while traveling!
  13. I still have to do a Zombies, Run! race... https://zombiesvirtualrace.com/
