Waiting July 9, 2020

I had time to post last night, but I was waiting to see a property today. It was nice, and while I’m still waiting on more information, I’ll probably bid. But I’m not done looking, or waiting.

We had our monthly all staff “meeting” this week. We’re still waiting on a lot of information and plans. Not to mention the recent surge in the county. But I’m pretty stable where I’m at for the year.

I’m enjoying working on writing an RPG Adventure. I have ideas to continue it into several. I started small to get used to the idea and the mechanics of it all. But I like it.

Critical Role is back online and my personal campaign is in the biggest battle yet. So, I’m definitely getting my fill of Role-playing once again. I’m also keeping up my Wii exercise, though my weigh-in doesn’t show it yet. Body still adjusting I guess.

Stay home if you can. Wear a mask if you can’t. Black Lives Matter, today and always.

I don’t even know if I want to start on politics today. Let’s just skip that and say I’m watching Hamilton tonight with friends online. It will be Awesome.

The work week was full of meetings for me. Team meeting, webinars, and an OER meeting. With the Director leaving in two months, we had to meet with the AVP who will be taking over leading the OER project. He seems like a good guy, willing to listen and learn. Fingers crossed.

Still struggling with my diet, but sticking to my Wii Fit exercises. I’m enjoying the biweekly vegetable delivery, waiting on today’s just now:

1 Cantaloupe (1.0 each)
1 Cucumber (1.0 each)
1 Lemons (1.0 bag)
1 Lettuce (red or green) (1.0 head)
1 Peas (snap) (1.0 lbs)
1 Tomatoes (1.5 lbs)
2 Zucchini (1.0 item)

Now that I read the list again, I think the snap peas may not be what I intended to order, but I’ll figure it out. I am excited for the cantaloupe and all the salad stuff.

In creativity news, I started an RPG Writer Workshop this month. It started on the 1st, and has the graduation goal of publishing a one-shot (short) adventure on the 31st. Very excited and curious to learn. I will definitely post a link when it’s done.

In social news, I’m taking my day off and this holiday weekend to have two socially distant, masked, outdoor visits with friends. Since this all began, I have only seen a couple friends from inside our respective cars. I am, by no means, ready to go to indoor visits or DnD around a table, but I Need to see people in the flesh, and maybe get puppy cuddles, since I can’t have people hugs, yet. Franklin County was a red, going on Purple level alert yesterday. Wear a Mask!

It’s a big birthday month in my family, so, Happy Birthday to everyone in the next week! I love you! Some day I will see you again.

Oh! And I got pre-approval for a mortgage loan! So, I’m on the hunt for a condo on the East side of Columbus. I’m going to have a Home where I’m allowed to do what I want inside! (So long as people outside can only see white curtains/blinds.)

May is ending, business is beginning again. The threat hasn’t passed, but people are tired and restless. And angry. But they can’t fight a virus, so they are fighting each other. It’s exhausting. On top of an already exhausting world.

I’m having a rough week, but I’ll get through it. My usual camping trip this past weekend went online through Zoom, Discord, and Twitch. It was an interesting experience. Smoother than other virtual events I’ve attended. My loved ones are finally getting postponed medical procedures. One completed successfully this week, a more serious one next week. And I’ve now been home alone except for food and one afternoon in-car game for eleven weeks.

I still have two meals a week with friends over video chat. The D&D game is steaming right along on Hangouts. I’m a week behind in blogging it, but I’ll try to catch up tonight. And I start getting farm fresh deliveries next week from our local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). And I have a pretty new gaming mouse with color changing lights. And did some coloring to relax this weekend.

Please be careful out there.

Hi Friends and Family!

I hope Mom had a great birthday yesterday. I had a nice phonecall with her and Dad.

And then I couched all night. 🙂

We’re having a couple sunny days to end the week down here. So, that’s helping with the Stay at Home mood. I’ve now eaten the final jar of Mom’s tomato sauce, and fortunately have plenty of frozen food to get me through next week. I am craving pizza, though. 😉

Work has been crazy busy again this week, but I have a quiet day planned for Friday. Everything I have been working on goes live on Monday. New homepage, library-wide chat for students to get our help, and a dynamic FAQ system. I’m excited and exhausted.

Not much to report on the social scene. I’m home, alone, and video-chatting when I can. DnD, dinners, a wedding, and a party this weekend. Technology to keep us sane. For at least another month.

Be safe everyone, and stay home as much as you are able. And thank you to those who are still going to work everyday to keep us safe and fed.

Covid-19 is all over the world, the news, the internet. What does it mean for me? Right as of this moment, it means our students are getting a two week spring break instead of just one. It means that, when classes do start back up on the 23rd, they will be mostly, if not entirely, online. It also means, we at the library are looking at all the ways we support distance learning and are kicking it up a notch. It’s a complicated time for our community college.

Personally, I’m just going about my normal introverted business. Finally picked up my comics from the store, and did my house cleaning on the weekend. Didn’t cook anything huge, just some banana-almond butter breakfast bars. I painted the miniature for my weekly DnD game and finished Yasha. I’m trying some things out and still need to get a miniscule brush for facial details. But I think she came out alright.

I finished listening to Harry Potter, book one. Now, I’m nearly done with a dramatization of Carmilla by La Fanu. Next up is The Library of the Unwritten by Hackwith. Next week The Explorer’s Guide to Wildemount comes out, so I’ll have a lot of physical reading to dive into!

Everyone be safe and take care of yourselves!
