October Review

October on paper doesn't look like much, but it hasn't felt bad. For one thing, I self-cared the shit out of myself: doctor appointment, therapist appointments, dentist appointment even. Need another crown, oh joy. Also I am now officially on antidepressants. Not that I was on them unofficially before, just being cute about my various anti-drugs that have at least gotten me this far. I'm on Lexapro, it's supposed to take 4–6 weeks to work. It's only been two and you know what: my globus is down to almost nothing. Which dang, I'll take it.

October picks:

HOME: Make a better place

1. Let's keep working on the house, it's so rewarding: pick a thing, anything.

Well, the only thing I got done this month was to deep clean the bathroom; that was deeply satisfying, I really should do that more often. But not so often that it loses contrast, ha. I did the whole salon coil trick and everything. I guess also I potted the spider plant cutting that I got from Brawla:

Otherwise I did a little feeble tidying, Problem's annual taco ride, Box's little backbends yoga workshop, both awesome, and per usual one cleaning block is reserved for paying bills.

SYSTEMS: Sharpen the saw

2. Ughhh nevermind new glasses, let's try this pick anything strategy.

Like I said this was self care month, I pretty much did everything but get new glasses. Did I mention that I bought a new laptop last month? I did. I've finally more or less migrated to that. I also finally switched over to my allapoppy gmail account, what a project that was; google does get its tentacles into everywhere.

PLAY: Study movement and muscles

3. Keep watching Functional Patterns videos.

But, something had to give: not a lot of videos got watched this month. I did do some client-driven stuff, that's always something.

PASTIME: Write alla Poppy

4. Keep editing and publishing recipes.

I have a plan for this, but you know how the best laid plans go and this plan isn't all that well laid. Stay tuned.

State of the Blog
Right now I'm just keeping up with the two posts per month, an eats post and a review post. I'm fine with that for now. I want to do more, but I have to figure some stuff out. Maybe I'll write about what I figure out.

Going out

Not much again, the aforementioned taco ride and also Box and Brawla's annual fall chili dinner. I had a surprise night off and got to watch Game 2 of the World Series with my coworkers, I almost never get to do that. And Sparty and I had brunch.

Staying in

Not much here either, what MJ and I watched together was Luke Cage, Vice, and Star Trek Beyond. Otherwise there was a lotta lotta laying on the couch and in bed watching superhero TV. We started watching the fifth season of Longmire because Fran at work started watching it and wants to talk about it.

November picks:

Geez, I don't even know. Heading into the holidays and that's usually the worst time for me. My work project is finally winding down, though. Maybe work will get back to normal, then I can figure some stuff out.
