Still Sleepyโ€ฆ ๐Ÿฅฑ

Morning everyone. Wellโ€ฆ afternoon, I guess. Even though I went to bed in a much better mood (and still am) the night sucked. It was fine until around 4:30am, I think? Around then, the power went out. So, with that, a bunch of things happened in succession.

My momโ€™s UPS began to beep. I woke up, she stirred enough to start snoring loudly. Suddenly I had strong cramps โ€”Iโ€™d probably just been sleeping through them until then. I waited a while, wanting to put on my earplugs but afraid because I wasnโ€™t sure if the burglar alarm worked when the power was out, and if itโ€™s not, I feel much less safe wearing my earplugs.

In the end I had to, I just couldnโ€™t sleep otherwise. I put them on, but by then, without the fan or AC the room was becoming sweltering. I eventually managed fall back asleep, and the power took like two hours to return. Then I woke up again when my mom started getting phone calls from the gas station because the longish outage was causing issues that they couldnโ€™t fix without her.

It was bad enough that she had to go to the gas station in person to fix the mess that the outage caused. I tried to get a little more sleep during that time, but just couldnโ€™t. So maybe I will after I finish writing this post.

Other than that we had a pleasant morning after my mom got back. As usual, we had mateโ€ฆ

We let Sweeney and Shampoo out, and left the door open a bit. After a while, my momโ€™s landlordโ€™s cat, Lincoln, came to visit:

My mom has a catnip plant, so she cut some pieces to give him and he absolutely lost his mind.

Iโ€™m feeling pretty good other than being so sleepy. Iโ€™m happy with my writing progress lately, and with commission progress today. Looking forward to some stuff coming in the mail. Crossing my fingers for a fun weekend (maybe).

Anyway, gonna try to nap, though Bangersโ€™ look from above my iPad seems judgmental. I feel like I should be working. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Hope youโ€™re all enjoying your week! ๐Ÿช

At Momโ€™s Now, Feeling Better I Supposeโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ˜’

I guess I feel a bit better now. ๐Ÿ˜’ Itโ€™s mildly infuriating to have emotions that are so easy to upset and, conversely, so stupidly easy to please. Hormones do make it worse, but still, itโ€™s problematic. Sometimes I feel like Iโ€™m too simple when it comes to some things, and itโ€™s annoying.

Why canโ€™t I be aloof and blasรฉ like other people? ๐Ÿ˜ฉ I guess I just am what I am, though, and I canโ€™t help that. Anywayโ€ฆ hereโ€™s a beautiful sky from todayโ€™s morning walk:

Iโ€™m at my momโ€™s now, getting commissions done, eating good things, and just relaxing. When I got here my mom had the usual little snacking spreadโ€ฆ

And she made me one of my favorite foods for dinner:

Iโ€™ll be gaming a bit here and there, but really mostly working. Iโ€™m not sure that Iโ€™ll go for any walk tomorrow. Iโ€™d like to, but I donโ€™t enjoy walks around my momโ€™s place as much. So we will see how I feel in the morning.

Before I sign off, hereโ€™s some Tomoyo:

Iโ€™m very sleepyโ€ฆ last night was bad, but I think tonight me and my simple brain will sleep much better. ๐Ÿ™„ I swear it feels sometimes as though I can only process like, two emotions. This is probably why I find snails so appealing, with their two neurons. Sigh.

Iโ€™ll post the fitness entry with a delay since the WordPress app hates tables. Goodnight all.

Insert Title Or Whatever

I’m not doing so good. I had a really bad night and a worse morning. My cramps are really bad… had a raging headache this morning. Emotionally I’m not doing so hot either, I never do when I’m on my period but I think today that may be putting it mildly. I just want to turn off all my feelings, hormonal or otherwise. I can never tell the difference between the two.

This is my only post today besides my fitness post, I just can’t be bothered. I’m going to try to get ready to go visit my mom tonight. At least I did get my walk in.

It Was A Day ๐Ÿ˜”

I really tried to give today my all, but it feels like it didn’t work out. I published two new YCHs, but neither sold. Most of my commissioners have purchased plenty of work recently –I am sad that I cannot seem to sell to new people faster, though it is happening little by little. I need new customers if I am to properly pull my own weight.

Other things are making me sad too. Sometimes very small things can make me very happy, or hurt me very easily. Especially at this time of the month. Sometimes I’m not sure if a thing qualifies as big or small in the grand scheme of things, but I can end up sad for a while, all the same.

But good things happened today too… I exercised a lot. And I wrote a whole bunch of the next chapter of my book. I also did a lot of chores and worked on a commission. It’s best to concentrate on accomplishments. There’s always tomorrow after all.
