Is anyone interested in Sims 2 + several expansions? They have been collecting dust in my closet for a few years now. It's PC/DVD. I make you SUCH a deal!

Doing a bit of Fall cleaning and finding things I haven't touched in ages and playing the "keep it/sell it/toss it" game.

This has also led to me being distracted by old toys and rearranging my collections a bit...expect pictures soon (if you follow me on Instagram, sorry for the spam! I was having too much fun!)

Also, I'm clearly not into body sprays as I have three bottles of the stuff, still mostly full, and I think they are ~5 years old?

Okay, after all that cleaning and organizing, I've earned some game time!

Not too fun

 I am so glad for the long weekend, my cold got worse for a while and so a majority of the weekend has been spent in bed, sleeping or watching tv. 
My fitbit tells me I got 13+ hours of sleep, and very few steps during the day. But at least today I am up and about and it's before 10am. That's a plus. I found my oregano oil while trying to dig out something to make me feel better from the medicine cabinet, and I think it's been a big help with the chest rattles and cough, as they are going away. 

Since I spent a lot of time sleeping the weekend away I am a bit disoriented when it comes to the part of the week it is right now. It doesn't feel like it should be Tuesday. And bummer of all bummers, I missed the sunny days by being laid up, and now the rain is started up again. Means I'll have to put a pin in yard clean up before my MIL arrives on Saturday, shaggy lawn will have to stay shaggy until I can function better.


more Inktober fun!

sheetcaking time! Birth control

So the "Trump Administration" just changed the ACA law, allowing businesses to decide whether the women they employee should have birth control, citing religious beliefs.

My brain is ready to explode, I'm just so...what the hell is this? Why should someone's boss get to dictate if they have access to certain kinds of healthcare?

Of course, if our country had a REAL healthcare system in place, this wouldn't be an issue, but because we are linked to jobs to get healthcare, this bullshit comes up.

If YOU don't believe in birth control, then that is YOUR choice, not your bosses, not your husband, THE WOMAN'S CHOICE.

If you decided to run a business, that was your choice. Guess what? You KNEW going in that you would have to provide health care for your employees because YOU STARTED A BUSINESS! So deal with it. You not only have to provide women with birth control if they want it, but you gotta make and decorate a goddamn cake for the gay couple.

If you don't want to do that, then don't be the boss. Go work in the trenches.

If only the GOP had such "moral" issues with, gee, I dunno, the NRA and other people that sell guns to anyone and everyone.

I need some sheetcake to scream into.

Oh! Bargain fun

I was just unwrapping a new toy that came in the mail.

Was super tired of my regular blender leaving ice shards in my smoothies.. and so when this Blendtec one went in sale (40% off) I ordered it quick! 

Here’s hoping it’s as good as they say. And the reviews seem to lean towards amazing. 
I hope so, because even with the huge discount it was pricey. 

And I shall call him Squishy

 Still fighting the cold bug. The sinus and chest part seems to be going away, but now I’ve got some stomach issues to contend with. Hopefully things straighten out soon, as I want to do a clean up of all the bits and pieces piled up along the side of the house (remnants from when we tore out the broken firebox).

We had planned on getting a dumpster this week, but thanks to this nasty bugger of a cold it has been deferred until after Thanksgiving (which is October 9th here).

Speaking of Thanksgiving, I’m calling in sick this year, so to speak. I totally didn’t have the enthusiasm to get a bird, let alone do all the fixings this time. And Ty’s house always has a big to-do every year there, so he’s all set for fun times.  And so, after making sure Aaron wouldn’t be disappointed in the lack of festive cooking (he was not.), I just grabbed a couple Hungry Man Turkey dinners when we were out at the grocery the other day. XD Those will do nicely for the two of us on Monday, and clean up will be a cinch hahahah.

Mainly I need to focus on getting better, as Catherine (MIL)  is over for a short visit on the 14th, and I’d love to get things more tidied up before she comes. Luckily Aaron’s looking like he’s at the tail end of things, and so he’s been swooping in to take care of household things. So honestly I won’t have to tackle much when I get over the bug.  Mainly going to be a quick dust bunny vacuum session, and maybe a refresh of the guestroom bedding and done.. so that’s good. Just feels like so much more to do when you’re sick I guess.

Inktober Day 3 "Poison"

This was the first image that popped into my head...clearly inspired by that moment in Disney's Snow White where she eats the apple and we just see it fall from her hand afterward.

I told my brother about Inktober and he sent me a random sketch for today's theme and it was almost the exact same image - hand, bottle. Sibling brainwaves, am I right?

One of my twitter friends was very worried when he saw this. He was like "are you okay???" but that at least made me feel like my drawing skills were decent enough!

I used to doodle all the time when I was a kid. Drawing, like so many other things, was a great way to exercise my mind and feel good about the finished product.

Of course, then I encountered people with natural talent and it made me embarrassed and I kinda stopped doodling in public.


I'm not that great, but I want to start working on drawing again, if only to amuse myself. So here is my first drawing for Inktober2017:

The themes were "swift" and "divided" but my brain just came up with this. I'm sure if you stare at it long enough, the themes fit. :P

Tomorrow is POISON and I already have an's hoping I can get the picture in my brain onto paper!

Want to join in the fun? You can find the prompt list here or just draw what you want!

September 2017
