It’s date night! We went out to dinner tonight. This was my outfit for the day:
We went to Hi-Pot, though we just had ramen as we usually do. I give Christopher my meat and he gives me his egg. It’s a good trade. I had milk tea with boba, too, and brought Cerise along:
Afterwards we walked around a little, went to Gamestop. Christopher got Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt Of The NecroDancer for Switch and I watched him play that for a while while working on art. It was a pretty chill date night but we enjoyed ourselves.
I can’t believe it’s already Monday again. I can’t believe it’s already almost 6pm. Today flew by, yet it also dragged on. I don’t feel well overall.
Last week, Akumin called again to reschedule my cervical MRI: in spite of all the problems, my insurance approved it and it was moved to Tuesday. That was a relief. So I got that done.
Unfortunately, I goofed and forgot about my blood test appointment. So that added a week of time to that. I’ll be getting the blood drawn this Friday. I felt very stupid.
Last Thursday I had another headache. The difference here was that it was the first time that it happened when my husband and I were intimate. Up until now, it had only been a “by myself” problem. So that put a temporary damper on the evening. It wasn’t terrible, as I stopped in time, but it left me with a burning in the area of what I now know is my occipital nerves under my right ear. It’s a pressure, an ache, an annoying warmth. And that remained for days, varying in intensity, and I feel it even now. It’s deeply annoying, and coupled with my PMS and with physical needs that I cannot take care of for the foreseeable future, I am literally crawling up the walls. It’s the freaking worst.
CW: TMI ahead.
Sometimes I wish I’d never discovered orgasms. A little over a couple of months ago, I didn’t need them, and I was fine. Maybe I wasn’t always, but I didn’t know that it was a problem. Now I know what they are, and how to have them. And I can’t. I can’t because if I do it I feel like someone is torturing me with an ice pick, hammer and vice to the head, all in one. All of that —and not taking care of myself is STILL HARD. The frustration I’m feeling physically is so horrible, that if a solution to my headaches cannot be found, I’ll gladly take a pill to at least temporarily kill my libido. Because this is a horrible way to feel. It’s horrible.
I meant to introduce you all to Punkim. As far as Charlie Bears go, Punkim is very basic looking, but he’s big and fluffy. I think he’s my most down-to-earth bear. I like him lots and lots.
Here’s a couple of photos of Punkim before his outfit was complete. You can see his face (and his cute little bear pants) better:
And here he is in his full outfit:
Lately, Christopher and I have been playing a little of Ever17 every day. It’s a game that’s really important to him, and as we play, I can see why. It’s been a wonderful routine especially on the days he is home earlier, or on the weekends, to play together for an hour while having a snack.
I’ve been eating crushed dry ramen while playing which makes me feel like an absolute beast, but to tell the truth it’s one of the most delicious things I’ve ever had. You smash the ramen, pour it in a bowl, and then mix it with the powder. Try it! I discovered it after seeing it’s sold as a dry snack in Asian stores and it’s 100% the same thing as normal dry ramen.
(And yes, this is completely safe to eat, though you have to be careful with your teeth, and I can only vouch for Nissin brand as being safe to eat like this, but I do believe most ramen is pre-cooked. You’re just hydrating it.)
On Saturday night Christopher surprised me by taking me to our favorite ramen place. I was sure it had closed down. It really made my night!
I’m doing my best to push through commission work. But to tell the truth I have no motivation for anything… not drawing, writing, reading, gaming… nothing… 😞
Maybe tomorrow I’ll concentrate on giving the house a good cleaning. I think that has been bothering me. Maybe it will help, if only I can muster the motivation.
Oh, yeah. I want to deeply, deeply thank everyone who got slots for the Winter Friends YCH. While I’m still returning and reordering stuff from Amazon, overall my setup is improving daily. Getting used to some changes in my setup presents a challenge of its own, but I’m doing my best. Once I’m 100% all done, I’ll post photos of both completed setups.
I’m most excited to get my Redbubble stickers for my desk. I can’t wait to cover the desk in new stickers. ✨ 🌈
Hello everyone! I started my day with coffee and Animal Crossing as usual… did my chores first, now it’s blogging and drawing time. What are your plans for the weekend?
I’m wearing new overalls today and one of my favorite onesies from Onesies Downunder. These overalls have a really weird color and I wasn’t sure what to pair them with, but I LOVE how they look with this dino pattern!
Finally my rainbow phone case arrived from AliExpress, and I was able to stick my new phone grip on it! It looks as lovely as I hoped!
Cerise kept me company while I spent some time drawing on the porch today! It was a nice change of pace, but very hot…
I leave you with this delightful photo of Tomoyo’s ear doing “the thing”:
If you don’t fix it for her, it will stay like that, sometimes for a full hour or longer. I usually fix it. 😅
