Time flies y'all. I had just twisted my ankle last post. This post I'm finally walking on it for a decent stretch of time without severe consequences. It does still hurt though. Obviously it was pretty bad. 

I've had a couple opportunities to use my pyrography kit. I made a cute little plaque for Geof to use at work. I suppose it's actually for his new supervisor, so I'm glad she thinks it's awesome. 

I finally started working on Geof's painting again. I'm still working on it...it's on hiatus again, though. For now.

I'm working on setting up an online shop to sell all the stuff I make now. 

I got really distracted while writing this and forgot to post it and only just now came back to it and I don't remember what I had intended to write after all that, if anything, so I'm posting now and I'll come back to this again later when I remember it exists. My ankle is taking a lot of time to heal, btw...I probably sprained it pretty good. A friend suggested I use a cane so it doesn't get overly upset while I have to use it while I walk my patrols for work. I might get one. I don't know yet. 

Ok bye!

Burn, Baby Burn! ...Ouch...

It's almost 4 am, Wednesday November 4. I just got off work nearly an hour ago, and I've not yet slept. My last post was October 30. I've been recovering from pretty extreme sleep deprivation the last several days. Maybe I'll finally feel back to normal, sleep-wise, when I wake up (hopefully not before noon). 

On the 30th, after I finished submitting my last post, I spent some time perusing Amazon and researching pyrography tools and kits. I found the one I wanted and put it into the cart to save for later. I then told Geof about it and made sure to note that I did not intend for it to be a purchase for now, but for later. I then turned over to go to sleep. Unbeknownst to me, Geof decided to just purchase it outright. 

Separate back story: Don't know if I mentioned before, probably not, but I saw a cool artist fundraiser ad for the Brooklyn art museum. It involved purchasing a sketch book from them to fill up with art of basically any kind imaginable, then returning it by a certain deadline, if possible. The reward is that they'll take your art and put it into their museum of sketch books. If you purchase additionally to have it made digital, it gets uploaded to their online library. If you get it returned on time, it travels around the world in their bookmobile as well. I purchased one for myself and one for Evelyn to fill up. And added on the digital. Don't recall when this took place.

On the 31st, we did not celebrate Halloween. I worked as usual. While at work, I did some Amazon shopping for a new pill container to make our daily meds more convenient. What I immediately noticed, was that the pyrography kit I'd put in the cart, was not in the cart. I then checked the save for later section and it wasn't there either. So, to ensure I wasn't insane and that I truly had placed it into the cart, I checked the purchases. And I chuckled, cause Geof just can't help himself on my birthday. He decided it must be my birthday gift, even though the new phones was my birthday gift. I shan't complain, but I shall roll my eyes and smile every time. After work, we went shopping. I enjoyed seeing the costumed workers sprinkled around the store, and as always, I wished I was able to dress up in costume every day of the year. 

On the 1st, I worked again, as usual. Woke up less tired than I expected, thank you daylight savings (doesn't make me a fan of daylight savings; I think it's stupid and unnecessary and annoying). After work, I returned home to open up my new birthday gift, the pyrography kit, then I took it to BtG to show off to Nate. I had planned to stay a while, but as soon as I arrived, Geof texted that he just finished gaming (an hour early). So instead, I returned home to pick up Geof and we went to Omaha to pick up more of his new wool panties from Duluth trading. Then we used my birthday coupon for a dinner at Qdoba before returning home.  By the time we got home, the new pill organizer had arrived, so after a chat with mom and after showing off my new pyrography kit, I set to work changing our pills out of the old and into the new. The new container didn't fit; so I ended up getting distracted for basically the rest of the night cleaning and organizing the vanity, med cabinet, and another cabinet which holds other similar items, like surplus, hair care products and makeup. I removed a bunch of expired meds in the process. I'm still quite proud of how it all turned out and that I managed to do it at all (thank you Adderall).

On the 2nd, I had intended to put up a shelf in the bathroom, take the expired meds for destruction, and drop some mail at the post office. I received a call from the dentist, though, that they had an immediate opening, so instead I went to have my tooth fixed up and postponed the rest. After the dentist I handled the meds and mail before returning home.
