NaNoWriMo 2018 - Day 18

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I wish I could say that I managed to be productive or useful at all today, but the most I've managed to accomplish was remembering to feed the kitties, taking care of my cat sitting gig, and making my soup for the week. That's it. I dropped [personal profile] katsuko off at work, did the pet sitting thing, and then came home, intending on being productive: working on the rec archive, unloading and loading the dishwasher, making soup and maybe even myself some lunch, and so forth. Instead, though, I passed out on the end of the couch once I got home and pretty much stayed there until it was nearly time to go get [personal profile] katsuko back from work.

But I'm gonna try to get a little closer to caught up tomorrow. Here's hoping anyway.

NaNoWriMo 2018 - Day 17

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Wow, okay, let's see if I can think of anything to say for today. I had intended to get a lot of writing done today, but sadly, it didn't turn out going that way. Instead I ended up working on the Mag7 Recs Site we were discussing in Discord yesterday. Some eight or nine hours later... I have the beginnings of a site up here... and it's even one that plays nice on mobile devices, if you're willing to go into landscape mode.

But seriously, that's just about all I've done all day. I took a brief break to eat and another to go do my kitty sitting, and that's pretty much been it. I feel like I'm going to see WordPress themes and code and blocks in my sleep, to say nothing of tables. Oh gods, the tables.

Still, let's see how it goes. Maybe I'll just actually pass the fuck out, since I didn't sleep a wink last night.

NaNoWriMo 2018 - Day 14

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Well, I can't say that I'm feeling any better. I'm taking as much zinc as I can stand to in order to try to cut this off before it gets really bad, since -- as always -- I can't take time off work to try to rest and recuperate.

I'm really about sick of all this rain. It's been what? Four or five days of pretty much straight rain. I'm starting to feel a bit like a drowned rat here. And it's supposed to keep going another few days. Is it... wrong to hope that someone declares that it isn't safe to cross the Chattahoochee so I can't go to work?

I need sleep. I think I'm gonna go give it a try.

NaNoWriMo 2018 - Day 11

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Well, today was almost productive. [personal profile] katsuko and I went to one of the local Panera Breads, and we both got a bit of writing done. I don't think either of us got as much done as we wanted to, but we both managed writing, which is still a good thing either way.

Even better, I managed to get some sleep last night, which was damn nice. I'm hoping for some more again tonight. It has helped me improve my concentration a little bit, and I can't help thinking that, if I got a couple of decent nights' sleep, I could rock out on the rest of NaNoWriMo... but I'm none too sure on the likelihood of that happening.

And that's all I've got for today. I'm gonna try to start getting really caught up tomorrow. (My plan had been to start on that today, but I think a little bit more sleep was needed for that. Whoops.)

Anyway, good night and so long, my freaky darlings.

NaNoWriMo 2018 - Day 10

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
OMG, apparently, I was very, very wrong yesterday. I said I was going to go to sleep. Yeah, no, that didn't happen. I might have catnapped here and there, but I still have yet to sleep since the few hours I got on Thursday night/Friday morning. I am tired enough that I damn near can't see straight and my head won't quit hurting... but I'm still not sleepy.

I didn't get a lot of writing done today, mostly because I couldn't concentrate enough to see straight, but I did end up watching The Devil's Carnival and The Devil's Carnival: Alleluia!, which were... interesting. Good, but odd, if that makes sense.

And yeah, that's all I've got for today. Good night, all. Wish me the ability to sleep tonight.

NaNoWriMo 2018 - Day 07

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Okay, you guys, I am super glad today is over. I'll be even more ready for this week to be over. I'm tired all the time, almost beyond words, I keep a headache, I'm tired and grouchy... and yet I can't sleep. Not for more than two or three hours at the time anyway. That seems to be just enough to let me get a few hundred words written and make it through the day without biting anyone's head off... but not enough for me to function well.

And yes, I'm still behind on NaNoWriMo. I'm still hopeful that I can get caught up, but it's looking less and less certain. But I'm not giving up yet. Maybe the weekend will be good for writing. We'll see.

NaNoWriMo 2018 - Day 05

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I lost a few hours on this. I sat down to try to make words happen, both on the train and on my way home on the train... but I'm so damn tired that nothing is happening. I start losing time when I'm this kind of tired, and I'm not sure, honestly speaking, if I'm falling asleep for a few minutes at the time or if I'm just so completely zoned out that I've got, I just can't tell. I think the headache's get a little worse each time I zone back in or wake up or whatever.

So despite the best intentions that I have, it's just not going so great.

NaNoWriMo 2018 - Day 04

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Okay, seriously, I need words to start cooperating. And yeah, granted, that might happen if I actually lay down and get some real sleep, instead of little catnaps here and there throughout the weekend, because maybe then I would be able to concentrate for more than two seconds at the time. To that effect, I'm going to knock off early even though I still haven't come close to my needed word count. Again.

So yeah, I still didn't get anywhere near my needed word count on any day this month except the 1st. I'm hoping that I'll be able to start making that up soon. Once the sleep kicks in, ya know? I deliberately haven't been looking at anyone else's NaNo totals at all, lest I get more discouraged with myself.

And now I'm finally going to hie myself off to bed. Good night, my freaky darlings.

More from home

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Seriously, I'm a little shamed of how much rest I still need. Granted, it was a very "go go go" kind of weekend, yes, but I think it has been more the long drive home than anything else that has me so damn exhausted. I think I've fallen asleep three or four times during the day today, only one of which was intentional.

No real writing. Mostly all I did today was reading and editing. Given that NaNoWriMo is right around the corner, I'm okay with that.

Saturday

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
What an absolutely and completely lazy ass bitch I've been today. I've barely gotten up off the couch. I've napped, read Venom fanfic, dozed, read more fanfic, ate dinner when [personal profile] katsuko got home from work, watched Ocean's 8, read more fanfic, dozed some more, and started working on this (while reading fanfic). And I've had a lot of Boo cuddling me on the couch, so that's been nice too.

All that said, [personal profile] katsuko's very obviously ready for bed, so I'm gonna go on back the hall and either sleep... or resume reading on my phone. Good night, all.

Sleepy

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I think I kinda hate the fact that Sunday is almost over. I've spent so much of the day sore and unwilling to move too much because I'm sore that the day flew by in a daze. I deliberately didn't let myself drift off because I wanted to be able to go to bed at a semi-decent time, but I still feel like I missed a lot of the day. But between the nausea and the aches, that might not be the worst thing ever.

What I didn't do was any writing. I ended up reading a lot of fanfic, though, which was nice, because it will hopefully give me some ideas of things to play around with.

So, yeah, not much to say for myself for tonight. I'm going to go throw myself at my bed and see what happens. Good night, my freaky darlings.

Sunday

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Two lazy days in a row. It's some kind of a miracle. A miracle, I tell you! I still feel like I could just drop off to sleep sitting up, but it's not nearly as bad as it has been being. So getting a bit of extra sleep during the weekend has helped a bit.

One of the stories I had been working on turned up blank, so I spent most of the day trying to get it back on Scrivener. Eventually, I found an old copy from a few months ago. So rather than losing the entire story, I only lost about 5,000 words of it. So... yay?

I guess it's time to try sleep again, so wish me luck. Good night.

Lazy

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Today has been a lazy, lazy Saturday. Maybe the laziest I've had in a while. I didn't even leave the house at all today, and I'm oddly okay with this. I guess I should have been listening to my body more of this week, because it's been telling me that I was exhausted and instead I ended up spending so much of today passed out unconscious on the couch. Whoops.

I spent a lot of time rereading back through some of my Shelter content. I did not spend as much time writing as I wanted to, but maybe [personal profile] katsuko and I will do some of that tomorrow.

I need to get off Mac of All Trades. I can eyeball and drool over the refurbished Macs on there all I want, but that doesn't mean that I can afford any of them right now.

Anyway, it's past sleep time now, so I'm going to go back the hall and see if I can't make that happen.

Friday!

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
It's finally Friday! Seriously, it seems like every week I end up saying that I spent the week thinking that the weekend was never going to get here. This week has definitely been a case of that.

That said, I managed to get a little writing done. And I did finally managed to get the handwritten stuff from Wednesday typed up today, so there is a that. Progress! I now konw that I'm not just hearing things when I'm too tired to deal. There is a that.

I accidentally ended up drifting off here on the couch, so I'm going to go throw myself at my bed. G'night.

Blegh

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I feel completely and utterly shattered. I passed out on the end of the couch, sort of, when [personal profile] katsuko and I got home and stayed there until I unexpectedly woke up just a couple of minutes ago. And I do have that "sort of" in there because I'm not sure if I actually passed out or if I was just in a state of too shattered to move or think. If the latter is the case, then I suppose I should have also put "wake up" in quotes or something.

I'm tired. Ergo, I'm weird. It's completely not unheard of for me to nitpick my own grammar when I'm tired.

I'm ridiculously glad that tomorrow's Friday. I've been feeling like this most of the week, so I would be very glad to have a couple of days to recuperate and all before I start back to work again next week.

Anyway, I think it's time to take my sorry ass to bed and to hell with trying to type up what I handwrote earlier today and yesterday. Good night, all.

Drowse

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I've pretty much been drowsing since I got home today. It's just everything I can do to keep my eyes open. In fact, pretty much the only reason I'm awake right now is because I needed to type up (a) this journal entry as part of my a post a day thing and (b) what I wrote by hand today.

And you know what? I think I'm just going to take the paper back to work and get more wrtten on that same spot. Try for a goodly amount of words tomorrow that way.

Plan? Plan.

Caturday

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Where the hell has today gone? I swear I was just getting up for the day a few minutes ago, and now it's already over. I think the only reason I'm still awake in the first place is because I've had a soda for the first time in a couple of weeks today, and it's got me all flustered like. It definitely has me more awake than I'm happy with for this time of day.

But I'm going to see if I can't remake the acquaintance of my bed. Good night, all.

Friday!

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I need a dance for surviving the work week and making it to Friday evening. Yes, the weekend will, as always, be too short, but it's finally here. I can sleep in tomorrow. Maybe have a chance to get these dark circles under my eyes to some manageable levels. Or at least socially acceptable levels.

Other than that, I don't really have anything to say. I got caught up reading a new fic from [archiveofourown.org profile] Hazel_Athena, and now it's so stupid late in the evening that it's actually morning. Whoops.

I guess that means that I should try to pack it up and try out my bed for a few hours. Seeing as how I've reached the point in the night where my hands are spasming... possibly because I keep doing these little 2 second exhaustion drop-offs.

Anyway, good night, all.

Almost...

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Two days into this newest medication for my joint pain, and all I can say for it so far is that it's not the hugest pill I've ever had to take. It does, however, get stuck in my throat more than just about any other pill I've ever taken. It requires so much liquid to get down. I do not like it so far, obviously, but if it decides it's going to help some of the pain, I'll put up with it. (I'll also gladly put up with the supposed "decreased appetite" side effect listed online for it. Yes, please.)

Tomorrow is payday, but mostly I'm just ready for the weekend again.

And yeah, that's all I've got (again). I'm gonna go crawl into my bed now.

Tired

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I'm so seriously incredibly tired today. Like every time I sit still for a moment or two, then all i want to do is sleep... and a lot of them, I almost have been asleep. But I don't feel rested, even on those times where I do fall asleep, so I will admit to beign a bit leery that it will be in any way restful to sleep in my bed tonight. b b

And Boo is now going to join me in typing. That's probably a good sign that it's time for me to go the hell to bed for the night, whether or not I have actually managed to accomplish anything. Later, all.
