Thoughts: Jessica Jones on Netflix and Abuse

Sunday evening, I finished watching Marvel's Jessica Jones on Netflix.  Among mutual friends most people have been raving about the show but a few have been a bit off put by it.  I however loved it.

MLP: Giving Truly a New Life

While I have been home on medical leave I am sure it's pretty hard to not notice that I have been posting a lot of My Little Pony restores online.  This one was a particular project that I am so excited about and I intentionally took on for my week of as a personal challenge.

Getting Ready for Friday

I have been spending this week trying to get anything and everything I can done before surgery Friday.

Monday I did storage things, Tuesdag I did some decent grocery shopping, today I slacked off a little, and tomorrow I get to do all my laundry.  Basically anything that requires lifting since I won't be allowed to lift anything more then 10 pounds for a bit. I am a tad concerned about the garbage but I think I can make the garbage happen Friday and shove the recycling out early since it's coming on an off day this week. Sigh.

The weirdest part of getting prepped for surgery has been *gasp* not taking my vitamins.  I was never a big vitamin taker as an adult but in the last few years I have grown very accustom to my morning vitamins. They are gummy vitamins and I typically take them first thing. Avoiding the bottle has taken some some serious avoidance.

On another note, I have learned the Tylenol truly does absolutely nothing for my headaches. Nothing.  While I more then likely hurt myself by missing a dose of my headache medication over the weekend this entire week I have been plagued with a migraine. Thankfully, it's not one that is mind numbing or I would be in some serious trouble.  The worst of it I found was dulled by a light cry, a late night chat with Scarlett, and really strong peppermint tea. I like my tea strong.  Weak tea is just slightly flavored hot water. It's just dirty water. Don't pretend.

Anyway, one more day of work then I am off for quite some time.  It's going to be interesting.

Retro Con 2015

Since Retro Con debuted a few years ago, I have been wanting to go but every year I have had a conflict or my schedule was just too full. I finally made it this year!

Every year, where or not I do holiday decorating, I lose myself slightly in picking up ornaments and sometimes I feel guilty about it but I just had a moment of clarity.

Handy Girl: Fixing Ford SYNC

Say what?  Yeah so my newish car was having so issues this week.  It was showing some serious symptoms of being haunted...

Thoughts: Jem and the Holograms 2015 SPOILERS

Last night, with my gift certificate in hand I finally found myself with somewhat of a free evening (because I really should have been home doing other things).  So I caught the absolute final showing of Jem and the Holograms and my extremely local theater.  It is still playing at other theaters, but extremely limited.  It just worked out tonight.
