...is how long I think it's been?

Yesterday I finished reorganizing space at work. On Tuesday when I go in, I'm going to finish up (for now) with that collection.

I wound up volunteering to run a one shot on Monday. I have the characters ready and a basic idea in my head.... that's all I really need, right? People seem excited, anyway.

Played Arkham Horror for the first time in aaaages tonight! It was good times.

In other news I have some kind of annoying rash around my neck? I dunno what the deal is.

I'm up too late, again. Time for a shower and sleep forever! The rest of the fam is going on a day trip tomorrow, and I'm hoping to get some dyeing done during game. Wererogue rearranged the living room today too, and I like it but it keeps catching me off guard. It's like it's divided into two spaces now instead of one.

Probably she'll see this somewhere, anyway.

I made cupcakes, and I got her one of those dodgy Chinese-manufactured ~assymetrical hoodies~ from a facebook ad. It was not as bad as some of the reviews said (reviews I only looked at after I'd ordered, because I'm clever that way), but not all I'd been hoping for. It is a cotton polyester blend, in that it is mostly polyester and probably there is some technical standard minimally being met? The arms are tight but it is wearable and she seems happy enough with it, anyway. I guess I could have gone a size up. Knitting was nice tonight, and I'm glad I cajoled her into coming out. I'm about 2/3 of the way into chart 11 (of 13) of Pulled by the Sunset.

Work was BUSY today! Not only with self-assigned projects, but just lots of people in and around doing various research things. And more of the same tomorrow! I'm hoping to get some things Put Away tomorrow, and I need to contact one of the grad students to do the same.

So much to do, so little time....

Time for bed! Before midnight! I mean, not by much, but I'll take it...

I dunno, I'm just reaching for titles at this point ;p

Work was good! Everyone wants to do flotation this week though @_@ busy busy! N is back for a few days, but he is going to Quebec City at the end of the week, so who knows when I will her back on any of the stuff I did while he was away. Or the people he asked me to contact, etc. Whatever. I finished a draft of the 'this is how the database is meant to be used/work' thing that I put together, because I think that is more useful than just a step by step guide for doing specifi things. It's so variable. We do need to work on some 'translation' guides for data entry, but I might ask my counterpart at the other facility to assist with that.

I also had some good conversations with J about his post-doc project, which is putting together a project portal for various kinds of heritage research, to put researchers in touch with communities - the communities suggest the projects and the researchers - students and faculty - can pick from various ideas and know that a: they will have support for the research and b: that since it is community driven it is muuuuch more likely to be competitive for grant-based funding. We've been tossing around with ideas for SA (some of which are Really Cool), and also brainstorming other sorts of things, and he keeps saying things like "we should write a paper." hah :V Who has time for original research ;p

In non-work news, it is Longpig and Wererogue's anniversary today (also my mom's birthday), and they went out to dinner, and I got to take care of the kids. Which included making a quick dinner when I got home - cheese and tomato omelets with cucumber slices and snap peas. wooh! They both ate everything, pretty much, so I'll call it a win. And they were pretty good at bedtime. Other than that, I finished weaving in the ends o the baby sweater, which is now "blocking" before final assembly. It's cute but heavy! ahh well. I am going to have back out of the actual shower though - a Toronto day trip is pricey, and the place where the shower is being held is not convenient from public transit.

I should go to bed. I've been really bad about getting in to be before midnight lately. I was on track for it tonight but something something the internet happened.

Night all!

No children were murdered! I did have to almost put myself in timeout a few times, but they always balked and then settled down a bit when I told them I was done with them and was going to hide in my room. I think I let them have too much sugar today, but we are out of milk except chocolate milk, and a friend brought them chocolate cookies, and so on >.>

They really were good most of the day, though, but I was ill :/ They remind me of longpig and I when we were kids, good and bad.

Anyway, I managed without parents, but with help, for four days! And back to work tomorrow. And maybe some kind of other normalcy as well?

I'm tiiiired. Kids are waking me up before 7.

I'm probably going to go to bed around 10. The fam will be home tomorrow night at some point.... probably late. I have to work on Tuesday. So more sleep is definitely better, and I'm not going to get in on the morning side.

It was nice to have company and assistance over the weekend. Tomorrow I won't, so that will be exciting. Bubby is already refusing to come to take the dogs out -__-

Okay. I think I should just go to bed. Coherency can be a tomorrow problem...

Nary and fam are here this weekend, while Longpig and Wereroge are away, and I have the nephews.

We mainlined Voltron season 3 yesterday

I've been feeling weird off an on all day - lightheaded and sorta dizzy. We had ribs from ribfest fro dinner and they were pretty tasty, and there are plenty of leftovers for tomorrow. Also made peach ice cream.

Sleep now. At least I turned off the kids alarm clock >.>

Bees. Vicious bees.

And not much in the house for lunches, which has meant buying stuff at loblaws in the morning s the past few days. Yesterday I thought I was doing good by buying a muffin for breakfast instead of a chocolate croissant, but this morning the bakery hadn't restocked yet and I wound up buying day+ old chocolate croissants >.> I ate too many of them. I also bought a mini pot pie and a half pint of raspberries, and the only reason I didn't eat them all was that bees + too much fruit = bad idea.

I am trying to write a blog post for the Day of Archaeology at work, but all I have is short and bland. But there isn't too much going on, so I'm not really sure what to say :p Maybe I'll see if someone else has a chance to look it over.... maybe 'll just give up on it.

Longpig and Wererogue went over to a friends' place this evening, so I managed the smalls. And then I packed, more or less, for LARP. And that's about it?

I actually had some email exchanges with shapers but mostly they left me shaking my head. Did you actually read my background? Did you get my character confused with her daughter? This creepy dream you sent for me to have is really more just sort of bewildering and vaguely unsettling... Anyway, whatever. They have like a million characters to keep track of, I can't really fault them for falling down on the details, I guess? Anyway, it is way past my bedtime, ugh.

Today is a day of intense tiredness. I'd almost blame PM's but the timing is all wrong. Ugh, bodies. Ovulation, maybe? Because I need everything to get more intense, that's just peachy.

Work was fine, tomorrow is our Strategic Retreat, which is a little ominously named, especially since it has the potential to determine my future job prospects... And also the last day of filming.

We had a family meeting to talk about how we need to do better at keeping house... I guess we'll see if that has any impact.

Early bed for me I think. I'm wiped despite a mini-nap earlier.

Well it isn't *midnight* yet so I guess that's not a total backslide :P

Nug party was today. Other than than, Diablotin! Which was a good session even if it was a bit temporally scattered since not everyone (including me) could make the regular time. Party was good - Nugsy had a great time and really that's the most important. The weather was pretty much perfect! And we have So Much Cake left over @_@

I watched all the Star Wars Whatsists of Destiny shorts tonight with Nary, but really it just made me want mooooooar! I'm sad that this will be the last season of Rebels :( But at least new movies will be out soon?

I think that's all I've got. I need to go shower (for really really real this time) and go to bed. At least I eventually remembered to take care of the kitty (food + box cleaning)...

I am really sock. I have a super shitty cold. I thought that I was past the leaky face bits yesterday - or the day before even - but no, they returned full force around 4 PM, after I'd booked a 10am meeting for tomorrow. I'd felt so much better this morning, but tonight my sinuses are inflamed (really visibly so - my face is red and hot to the touch), and I'm tired and my asthma is acting up. And I can't find my inhaler, it isn't in any of the places it should be /o\ I really don't want this to get in my lungs. I've been doing sinus rinses (gross but better than the alternative) but they only help so much.

Of course this happens when H&I are out of town for two weeks, so I have a lot more stuff that I need to do. No one else is going to walk the dogs or feed me :(

Ugh. I guess I'll see how I'm feeling in the morning, and if need be I can try and reschdule that meeting, but for now I'm just going to take it realllllly easy and hope for the best.

I was going to do a log of how I've been managing to feed myself, but other than Kraft Dinner yesterday I think I'll probably be okay. I can, in fact, remember how to food. I just can't taste any of it -_-

So this meeting tomorrow is to talk about cloud computing solutions for work.... it's going to be a hassle and a half. I need to talk to the campus IT people, too. I probably should have done first. This is gon' be a nightmare :p

Well, here goes I guess! Anyone know anything about cloud computing? :p

Oh oh oh!

Meanwhile, I got *THREE GIFTS* for Space Swap! And they're all excellent. I highly recommend them all :)
