chrysilla: I rocked out at Mutant Peep Nite (Hedwig Peep)
I've felt strangely not-awful this week. Despite the cleaning binge & all the rains (tho there have been migraine teases, I have meds for that), I am still a functional person, and my energy levels seem to be going up a bit.

So I'm wracking my brain trying to figure out why, hoping its not a random phenomenon:
Why so awake? )

My tummy is still grouchy, but I'm learning how to deal with the new weirdness. But my skin is also breaking out more this week. And when the CF started gaining traction in my life, my skin became abnormally clear for me. That indicated that my problem might be hormonal, which indicated that it might be my thyroid, but common medical industry practice is "F#$% your problems if they don't show up on our tests the way we say they're s'posed to." So while my thyroid looks inflamed on an ultrasound, my blood tests are in the 'normal' rage, so f#$% me.

And wasn't I super sleepy for the last two weeks? And now I'm more awake than usual. Hmph. Body, you need a better manner of communication. "Owch" and "Zzzzz" just aren't enough.

Thanx to newfound energy and a bit more focus, I'm working on my usual summer backlog at work, and finally remembered to order my plane tix for Dragoncon. And I'm making a more focused effort to find roommates, that involves me *writing down* interested parties and details in case my brain shuts down again.

But DCon in two+ months isn't enough for me, I wanna be geeking out nooooow. So I'm looking into geeky meetups in NYC. Looking For Group )

That's odd now that I think about it. My brain has a few extra spoons to work with, and its all RESEARCH CONS instead of WRITE SCRIPTS. Will mull this over. I still haven't had a moment to sit down and mull/meditate over the Sedonia stuff in the privacy of my own home, b/c things. Maybe I'll finally get that together tonite. And more thinking on whether or not I'll remain a hermit, but the lack of social offerings in NYC that don't start *after* my bedtime in far off boroughs may keep that a slow gradual process.

Lol, yesterday I had more spoons, but was teetering into a bad mood (b/c reasons), and suddenly remembered that I could text a local Village-centric friend to see if they wanted to hang out after work. And we did! And had Bareburger, on LaGuardia but I just made sure not to order a (cricket) salad with my burger. Good idea, considering the rest of the week will be rained out. And still got home after hanging out/dinner with more than enough time to fold excess laundry and get ready for bed. And falling asleep was a bit harder again due to "OMG AWAKE" but otherwise I slept OK.

And weird dreams happened )

This weekend is Dad's Day, and I was waiting for a verdict on that before making other plans. And the fam wants to come into Queens for Bareburger on Sunday, so I have time for more stuff aside from chores. That could be cutting fabric for the DCon costume, or more weird baking experiments, haven't decided yet. Oh, and some extra cleaning tasks that didn't work out last week for one reason or another.

I'm going to try limiting my sewing habit to 3 hours per weekend, and hopefully I'll get the B5 dress done by LDW without burning myself out. But that will include a mockup/muslin of the jacket part. Will see how this works out. There are some other light-costuming bits I'd like to finish from the project bin, but I'm not entirely sure I have places to wear them yet. *shrugs*

chrysilla: (will thelemic)
Friday night I started taking 3mg of melatonin at bedtime, like I stopped doing around January 2011, and I feel pretty OK. No residual drowsiness (tho with me, that's hard to tell anyway).

Actually, I've had a really super busy weekend (by my current standards), despite wanting to crawl inside my own skull and expire for most of Friday. I had already put sewing out of my mind that day due to my negative bonus to dex for two days running, so I got hyped up for home improvement and chores, which turned into another bout of Discardia.

A Weekend Full of Accomplishments )

Jebus. OK, that was mostly just cleaning, feel free to skip the cut tags. But I have precious little else to be excited about these days, so I enjoyed it while it was happening.

Did not get around to the dusting, but by the end of the weekend most of it was probably airborne. So its in my best interest to let it fall to the surfaces and then kill it with cloths and swiffers next weekend. And then wet-wash the floors once its warm enough to open the back door for chemical venting. I wore a cheap dust mask for most of the work, and don't have a S.I. today, so double yay.

And I still haven't cleaned up the top of the fridge, which used to be mouse central, b/c issues. But soon I think. Maybe I just did all of that other cleaning to avoid that one little spot of territory? Blah, issues.

When it gets warm outside, I may finally feel functional enough to wash the f#$% out of the balcony and start setting up that space again. Not to mention, painting the bathroom and hallway seem less intimidating. Even the kitchen reno, but less intimidating still leaves that kind of intimidating. Eeep.

However, this is all dependent on me feeling less CF-y. Which I do so far. Unfortunately I could also just be pms'ing, which sometimes results in extra energy and good mood swings. So if I still feel on the better side of my normal next week, or even better than that, I'll start considering getting a life again. I'm not sure a massive, early spring cleaning binge really counts.

Other things that need to happen sooner: Taxes, photographing the latest shinies. Less sooner, I'm finally mending/fixing old clothes so I don't have to buy new ones, yay! And maybe that pattern sewing project I recently got fabric for. DCon is only 6 months away, so I'm starting to suss out if I need any new patterns & fabric, or if by coincidence I already have everything I need.

A friend is having a b'day party on Friday that I'll try to attend, I'd like to try and hit Browncoats on Saturday afternoon, and NYRSF is Wednesday, so maybe I'll have the energy for some of that socializing.
