RedStone Tells It Like It Is

Heyo! Traditional and alternative challenge models haven't been working for me a for awhile, but a battle log hasn't either. As a GM, it's important for me to stay connected with the Rebels, so I'm going to try this - use this thread to talk about what's going on, a kind of diary, but also a confessional of sorts, out loud honesty has always kept me in check. Let's call it an experiement!

My parents visited us this weekend. It's the first time we've been... breathed on by people, and it was weird. But also really nice. But also very frustrating. I have a strained relationship with my mom that I've worked very hard on balancing over the years. She treats me more like a sister than a daughter, which results in a weird type of fighting I didn't grow up with. Lots of tears and threats followed by hugs and ice cream. I drank a lot while they were here.

 

We also super cleaned the house which feels great! It wasn't a huge mess before, but it feels more normal now, and that's great. There were times I would be in a room just sort of surrounded by invisible piles of imaginary (ok, some real) piles of skin cells that no matter how many time I vacuumed I couldn't get rid of. It's like the last 3 months were a weird semester abroad full of zero super vision and manic art projects and psychedelics and now my parents show up and that's over now and we're back to normal.

 

Only they're gone now and it was quiet last night and now it feels very chill.

 

I turned the guest room into my sewing/mask business room, and had to turn it back into a guest room while they were here. Well, now I have to empty the gym of all that stuff and get it back into the guest room before this afternoon's work of zoom clients in the gym. I'm kind of looking forward to it. When I first started the masks it was super chaotic and there was a haphazard development of how things worked in there. Now I have a simple system and it should go in much more easily than last time. Both spaces should feel more relaxed.

 

Speaking of masks, I have a new favorite! I ordered this stuff in April and it just arrived last week. (Immediate curbside pickup is one of the perks of using my local fabric shop, along with supporting my friend and getting sour patch kids in my order bags.) But oh man, I love this thing :DDD ONWARD!

Hello my dear!

 

You know @cheetah has been doing this sort of vague diary-esque update of a challenge and it's been so fun to read through!   I think this plan of yours might work!   If nothing else, keep posting because I lurve you and like to see how you are doing.   My one friend got one of your masks too!  Hee, yay!   And yours is still my absolute favorite, even as my sister and her hubby continue to over-buy ALL TEH MASKS FROM EVERYWUR!
