I got looking at the internet instead of showering or making this post.

Knitting earlier, and before that I went to dinner with two of my friends. It was nice, though the cider I had was not great - bitter.

Work was fine and I finished another project. I'm close to done the third, and can probably wrap it up tomorrow if I buckle down. I want to leave a little early,as I have LARP this weekend, but we'll see, I guess!

I keep forgetting yesterday was Monday :P

And I have a dentist appointment on Thursday. It's a weird week.

It was a weird day at work! I was chasing information around and attending impromptu meetings and calling people and stuff and *whew*! Busy.

I posted my galra mini exchange fic, not sure what I'm writing next:

Army of One (1063 words) by Measured_Words
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Voltron: Legendary Defender
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Haggar/Sendak (Voltron)
Characters: Haggar (Voltron), Sendak (Voltron), Zarkon (Voltron)
Additional Tags: Power Dynamics, Loyalty Kink, Medical Procedures, Implied Torture, Offscreen Dismemberment, Implied Eye Trauma, PG-13 is hard >.>

Sendak has failed his emperor, and is prepared to face the consequences. Haggar, however, doesn't want to see such a loyal underling wasted.

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 >.>

I almost went to my mammogram a day early, but it is on the 2nd, which is Wednesday, not tomorrow. whee! Bedtime now (not in my bed still though). This has been an update.

I slept on the couch in the basement last night and probably will again tonight. My bed still smells like pee, but less like pee.... Wererogue ordered a vat of nature's miracle, but if I get impatient I will probably just stop at the pet store and get some tomorrow, because it wont be here until Tuesday, maybe? Sometimes Amazon is faster than advertised. Though I've still never gotten my Raksura book (I read Nary's copy). Not that I really have room for it on my shelf anyway. But now I have emailed them again because this is ridiculous.

Anyway! Game today was great, though my character gained another 'madness'. I now have ...five. I'm not sure what this one will be, but at least I'm not the only one losing it any more - our swashbuckler is startng to pick some up too. If my sanity ever drops below half I'm going to be gibbering in a corner, but apparently my thighs are still dreamy enough that Longpig's character would still maybe marry him ;p It was a really good session, anyway.

I also got some dyeing done. I don't think I have enough yellow left for another row of my larp shawl, so I took the stuff I'd tried to dye with a fairly exhausted walnut bath and put it in a fresh, much more intense walnut bath! I simmered it for a while and am leaving it to soak overnight. I'll take it out tomorrow and see how it looks then.

Now I'm just lazing. I should write on my galra exchange fic but I'm still just so tired :| Early bed for sure.

Ugh

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.

Work was fine, I'm working on getting more of my shit together. I didn't go on the roadtrip, which has been postponed until Friday. There are people coming in tomorrow who will probably be our contractors for or database and front end API. Please god, let them be competent and not just friends with N who he has made Promises to (I know they are that, but please let them at least be competent).

Today was unseasonably chilly. I was not properly dressed. boo.

Tonight was lovely, bedtime now. Night internets!

Mostly on a whim, I decided to go down to the board game social that some larp peeps threw together, so I could have a chance to hang out with them out of game. It was fun! Now I am tied, and tomorrow is also going to be really loooong. Well, good long but still long.

I am trying to come up with ideas of things I can write for the work blog It hasn't been updated in ages, and was never updated regularly. I'm not entiiiiirely sure it is worth it, but it would give me something to do. But the problem is that there isn't much going on, or not much I can post about, anyway :/ Monday I'm taking a road trip to the other facility, which should be interesting! Partly because it means road tripping with N @_@ I'm not completely sure what all we will be discussing, but it will be cool to see their facility anyway. They do more Hard Science archeology, like isotopes and thin sectioning and such. Anyway. It should be an interesting week.
