Bullet Points Today

Song: “You Think You’re A Man” by Divine

Mood: 5.5

Nightmares: 0

Ghosts: Moderate

It’s very late, so here are the main things that happened today:

– Kept very busy.

– The stuff that happened yesterday regarding me probably never seeing any of the nurses, therapists, aides, or other staff from the ward again, is still really bothering me. I’m trying to keep busy so I’m not dwelling on it but I keep catching myself thinking about it. Good Lord, I’m 43 years old and find myself fighting back tears when I think about the staff on the ward that took care of me and helped me get safe enough to go home. I will miss them all so much.

[Oh great, it’s happening right now… argh…]

– I was trying to think of something to give Dr C for Christmas and came up with the idea of a phrenology bust. I found a model, cut it into two pieces so it didn’t need as many supports, and ran it through the slicer. It’s by far the most complex, largest, and longest print I’ve done yet. It took almost 15 hours, but I’m very pleased with how it looks. Tomorrow I will do some tweaking, hopefully get the front and back to line up properly, glue it together, and paint it. If it doesn’t work, I have another week to try again.

– While the printer was doing its thing, I sat down and made two more denim bags. That’s it for the denim so I’m going to either move on to towels next or make a couple of bags out of the material left over from the curtains. I’m not sure how much there is. I should get into the mittens soon, too. The sewing is great because when I have to go chasing ghosts, I can get right back to where I was with no problem, which was pretty handy today. That’s four bags in total done now, and I’m getting a lot faster at making them. They’re not the prettiest but hopefully someone can get some use out of them.

Homemade Denim Bag– My sister called today. It was good to talk to her and I was happy to hear that she’s doing well. I enjoy our weekly talks and hearing about how everyone over there is doing. My nephews are both doing really well – the younger one is really enjoying playing hockey.

– J and I watched another episode of Elementary this evening. I am pretty impressed with this season so far. I can’t remember which one it is, but it’s the one that recently came out on DVD.

– Since the 3D printing has been going pretty well and I’ve been running it a lot, I ordered some more supplies for it. Even ordered some glow in the dark stuff – I have plans to make things for my nephews with that.

I need to stop here. It’s far too late and I’m typing with my eyes closed. Dr C appointment tomorrow.

Stay safe.
