It's a good thing we have the Olympics to distract us, because man, have we had a series of unfortunate events around here for the last couple of weeks. It started with a seven-hour blackout during a huge storm, where we didn't have power from 9 PM to 4 AM, and which is inconvenient for my father and me who need CPAP machines to sleep and those need power. Then I broke my toe, or at least sprained it badly, by stubbing it on the dog gate. I let out a scream I have never before screamed. If it is broken, it's not out of alignment, so there's nothing to be done by going to the hospital, according to Nurse Mum. It's very, very bruised, but it doesn't hurt unless I'm wearing shoes. We then found out our much-beloved massage therapist is moving to literally the other side of the country, my dad almost got scammed by a fake tech support person (no damage done, just stressfu), and the new mattress my parents are waiting on didn't come on the truck, so they aren't getting it this weekend as planned. But, at least there's the Olympics.
Other--good--things are happening, too, though. I have Pax's leash putting on licked; he'll do it no hesitation now. We went to see my brother and sister-in-law at the cottage and hung out with her father and his partner, and had a lovely time (we're all double vaxxed). And I'm learning to colour lineart on my iPad, and it's going super well and I'm loving it.
So, that's all. Hope you are well in this continously strange times. This entry was crossposted on Dreamwidth (https://awanderingbard.dreamwidth.org/315357.html). Replies are welcome in any location.
