Today was a good and busy day. The new frames came and so did my keyboard. I am happy but I also feel very overwhelmed. I don’t really have much else to say really. I’m trying hard to keep up with my busy life as it unfolds around me, while at the same time not miss it. I feel like I have a lot of obligations piling on top of me.
Tomorrow I’ll go see my mom, so there’s that. I’m looking forward to it.
Today is a little infuriating because I did go on my exercise bike in addition to the walks below, and I went at it harder than usual, so my time, speed, etc were not as other times. But I accidentally pressed the reset button when I was almost done, so I ragequit a few minutes sooner than I normally would have.
Being able to track the ride is my most immediate and rewarding motivation. 😓 The last calories burned I saw on the screen were 125, so I’ll be substracting that, in addition to the below.

Hullo everyone! I hope you’re enjoying your long weekend as I am. I’m having quite a busy one (as usual) though, I did manage to sneak in more reading time than normal. I’m trying to make my way through the Bears Of The Ice series but it really is kind of a drag. After that I’ll reward myself with one of my dinosaur books, though.
Last Friday Christopher drove me to the local Asian mart so I was able to get some goodies I hadn’t had in a while!
Not everything is pictured (the best part were the many special breads, such as melon-pan, strawberry moon-cakes, red bean paste rolls, and such, as well as a new coffee that I really enjoyed) but above you can see some rice crackers, furikake of several flavors, giant Caplico “ice creams”, mayo flavored ramen, a milk candy that was hard as rock and I hard to trash (cries) and a really delicious peanut ball snack. They are peanuts covered by a baked shell that is sort of sweet but not too much. They’re really good.
I also got some cutlery, sometimes they have really cute things:
Over the weekend we went to IKEA as Billys were finally in stock again. So I worked on the guest room, putting the collectibles I still have left in display along with Christopher’s Lilo & Stitch stuff. I really got rid of so, so many things I loved… it’s a little heartbreaking. But in the end I am very glad I kept the things I did keep. I still need to put some pictures on the walls, and I want to buy a small chair and two nightstand lamps, but otherwise it is done:
I can’t wait for our friends to enjoy this room when they stay over.
Kotoko was quite excited as I worked on the room and kept running around between things and between my legs, until she found the comforter on the floor and made a nest in it:
I was able to snap some extremely cute video of Rosemary over the weekend, just being happy and silly:
Tonight I made breaded chicken cutlets with salad and avocado for dinner. Afterwards for dessert Christopher had chocolate ice cream and I enjoyed some espresso with one of my Caplicos:
And that is it for the weekend. I’m so happy that Christopher will be home tomorrow. Perhaps we will watch a movie. Goodnight, everyone!
