September State-of-the-Life

I'm actually walking. Okay, I still waddle some, but it's getting better. I've been eating too much sugar, but in the process of cutting down again.

Relevant to the purpose of this blog: I'm doing the Sanctuary Press Workshop at ConClave this year, and may actually be prepared for it!

AND Daughter and I are working on 'artful' boxes for the art show. AND I still hope to complete the eggshell TARDIS to enter.

Meanwhile, work on the back of the house is slow but progressing. Son is dragging his feet because he's convinced that his gf will pay for it. But we put up a pretty good shelter to store all the scraps of lumber in. I'm pleased with that.

I've also been working on the front yard a bit - changing the look of the bushes and weeding. And Son transplanted the unwanted tree from the curbside to the middle of the empty lot.

State of the Life

Doing okay. I have learned to take more pain pills, because I get around better and faster that way, and the hip definitely needs the exercise and practice. I have learned to take psyllium husks and maltital daily to keep 'things' moving.

Son's business is stalled. I can't blame it on the season - there are just as many leads as before. But perhaps the more experienced people are snatching them up more because they are less busy. I may have to stop the leads for the winter - can't afford $100 a month if we don't get any business.

This is okay for now, but I certainly don't want to do it for years. Son is kind of expecting that I will. I'm hoping that Carrie will just simply fill the void. All of his voids.

He and Daughter are probably going to work for a home for the retarded. Our friend Sarah runs it, and is having difficulty keeping reliable people, especially for overnight. Perfect for Daughter who is up half the night anyway; she can bring her laptop and do the things she would be doing at home without pay.

But things are not moving along for me. No progress on Book, on Tarot Cards, or on Eggurgy. No progress on the back room. And I'm running out of Summer to store my stuff outside in.

Note to Self - Constipation

Don't mess around too long with an enema. If the first one doesn't work, use laxatives. This time I used the one pill each of the two different kinds every 12 hours until I got results, which was three times. I also ate maltitol-sweetened chocolate.
