I'm just a bundle of ARG and repressed flailing and stress so bad right now. I want that house. I want it bad. I want to get out of this fucking apartment and into a place that doesn't have horrible drafts and an abusive manipulative landlord. The house for rent we went to see is NICE and the lady showing us was all "and if that breaks, we'll fix it, my husband is handyman, he fixes everything." It has a semi finished basement [aka, THERE IS A FLOOR IT IS NOT JUST DIRT] and attic [Ditto, there is a floor, it could be a spare bedroom as long as it's not winter] Landlord takes care of some of the grounds work [the flower beds/landscaping stuff.] there is a HUGE garden plot, a front and back enclosed porch EVERYTHING LOOKS SO NICE AND NOT HALF ASSED T_T. There is even a two car garage WITH STORAGE BEHIND.

And you know how you can walk into a place and tell if it's well isolated/sealed? Yeah. There's even new windows that are the double pained glass.

But yeah. Nice sized house. Not to big but we don't NEED big. And the landlord takes care of the water bill, and they only used around 350 gallons of oil last winter. Which, considering this house has gone through 300 gallons in the past TWO MONTHS in the SPRING end of winter?

Yeah. We will be saving so much utilities money on this place.

Do want. Do want so bad I am ANTSY AS ALL FUCK.

I really just... I need the change. I need the nice the lack of freaking ANTS and assholes and noisy parties next door and people walking off with my bike and moving my solar stakes and just ARG.

So I logged in and checked m'friends page, I should update! :D

Summer continues to be annoying in that summer way, but whatever. Iron levels are back up to normal, huzzah! Now I just need my blood cells to not be tiny and I will be a normal human again wheeee.

Judy's doing Shakespeare on Main St this year. They're putting on the Tempest with an all female cast. She got sorta roped into it cause Jenna was auditioning and needed Judy to tell Gary she would be late. So then someone who was gonna play a pair of bit parts wasn't showing, when it was still the first week, I said if they needed someone, I'd give it a go. 3 weeks in, I get asked to come in. Stumble through the reading, feel horribly out of place, have an anxiety spike that grows and grows until I have a break down the next day about an hour before rehearsal. Frannen attempting to read Shakespearian English on book while everyone else has had weeks to learn their lines and oh god and just... could not do it. So I bowed out.

Couple days later, I get asked if I wouldn't mind helping out with props. This, I can do! I figure the girl who's already there more or less knows what's going on and I'll pick up cues and assist. Only not since she was just starting too. And then she didn't come in the next day. Huh. Well, whatever, I figured out what needs doing and can ask the stage manager and producer for anything I don't have down yet, s'all good. So now I'm head of props due to being there two days in a row. Kay cool. Week goes on and I see less and less of her. She comes in late, wanders off, doesn't show up... aaaaand then she goes to Oregon. With out telling any one.


So I'm now doing props solo. Not a big deal, there's only two parts now that I need help carrying things with (would be one but we never got that canvas down for the wood pile, no biggie.) Still having a good time, especially when figuring out how to rig things and make them look nice. Like with the clothes line that was originally this fat rope with clothes pins that would fly off. Asked around and someone had a used clothes line to bring in, then there was a decision to use old style pins to hang the clothes on. Only what was found were "doll pins" and phhht those don't work so well. So I got the idea to saw the doll pins in half and glue them to the regular pins to look nice. (And thankfully, someone had a power saw and tools at home and sliced em in half for me nicely, yeay!) Then tied the pins on with thread so they stayed in place and huzzah! No more flying clothes pins! (Yes, I am a dork, this is an accomplishment, I like fixing problems. :))

It's also nice that I still get to help cause part of the big anxiety was the whole "I'm letting people down" deal when I hit the "I can't do this" so yeay, still getting to help. And Gary wants to talk to me about Stage Manager stuff once he has his brain again (aka, after the production) so huzzah for that.

Took a wad o photos during rehearsals as well. A bit not so happy with how a lot of them came out since the lighting was just... either the flash went and didn't cut it and it was dark or I turned off the flash and got a bit of blur. *laments* but I got a bunch of fun shots.

So, first performance is tonight, wheee~

One of the cast members flagged me down while I was walking and it reminded me why I do enjoy living here. :) Getting to have random chats on the sidewalks, being recognized (one of the ladies who does fundraising for SoMS spotted me at rehearsal and was instantly "heeey, what are you doing here, how'd you get roped into this" smiles and chatting :D) and just things like that. And it continues to please me when people spot my hat and comment on it :D and all the "I knew it was you because of the hat!" :)

So. yeah. I actually had something to update about whee!

So after getting a gazillion tests done...

Nothing is wrong.

My blood sugar is fine, my cholesterol is golden, my cortazal (no, I have idea how to spell it) levels are all good, everything they tested for is perfectly on level. Testing for Polysystic ovarian whatnot came back negative

So, in short, no one has any idea why in hell that mess over summer happened. The endocrinologist basically said "Welp. If it does it again, we'll run new tests while it's going on, but other than that.. you're good to go!"

So whee, no problems, but still scratching my head going "well WTF was that then?"

In other news:

Read more... )

These were taken a few hours ago when we went out for round one of shoveling.

It's been snowing steadily since then.

Started cleaning the kitchen, and there are these spaces next to the drawers that are open, looking like there should have been more small drawers tehre but there weren't.

So we put things like potatoes and onions and such in there cause they don't get fridged and hell, we don't have much space.

Cleaning that out and found SO MANY GROWING POTATOES.... and EVEN WORSE

One of the taters had ROTTED and leaked THROUGH THE BAG.

The wood under that bag? Unstained pine.


Fuuuuuck ><

I don;t know how to get that stain out, or if I even can. >< I need to get a roll of contact paper and find bins to shove in those spaces so this DOES NOT HAPPEN AGAIN.


I suck at house keeping T_T So badly T_T
