I should remember that unless I am specifically looking for recommendations to limit my next door viewing down to just my neighborhood, because wow. Someone was asking about whether a dark yard at night was an enticement to burglars (vs. all-night floodlights) and a woman said:


I love my sensor lights. They serve as an alert system that notifies me when someone is trespassing. It's my heads up to get armed and do a perimeter check.


Which... wow. I mean, we are a semi-high property crime area because lots of wealthy people (mostly package theft and car prowls, though), but, um. Just um.

too darn hot

It is 93 and humid.

I did not haul my ass back to the PNW for 93 and humid in June.

I did, however, just haul my ass into the clearance section of Target for the most nothing little tank dress I've owned since I was 23, because it's too fucking hot to care about whether I look that feminine. I'll probably be able to pinpoint temperature drops by the point where the physical comfort of so much skin is suddenly outweighed by the emotional discomfort of being in a vaguely sexy dress in public.

I hate waiting

D saw the doc, and they gave him a referral to a specialist and said basically to continue monitoring and refining what he's eating to see if that is the issue... the earliest appointment is mid-July (*after* the one day camp he's doing which is Shakespeare and stage fighting, and it will suck so hard if he is hurting too much to do that.).  So I guess we just .. hope? that things improve in the interim. 

I am so frustrated right now.

I have installed an extension to block access to twitter, since it's just so damn depressing right now. I'm making my calls, and sending money, and all that, focusing currently on the Texas tent camp for kids because OMG what is it going to take for people to recognize what that is. Banners marked "arbeit macht frei"?

 My schedule for all I was going to get done while Dan was away at school camp has been blown all to hell, becuase at 5:30pm yesterday I got a call and it was clear that he was too sick to stay (particularly at the NatureBridge camp, where each day has hours of hiking.)

So, 2.5 hours there, via the Edmonds-Kingston ferry, and then 3.5 back, becuase it was late enough that we couldn't make the ferry's last sailing. Ugh. What's especially dumb is that if I have family in Sequim that I'm not super close to but would have totally been fine letting us crash, but I don't have their phone numbers and no easy way to get it.  

I really, really hate driving on country highways at night, it's so horror movie waiting to happen, and when a car is far enough ahead of you in the dark, the red taillights look like monster eyes. 

The boy is going to the doctor, since apparently the problem is something he's been having for a while but it just massively escalated, S is taking time off work to take O to the dentist appointment I had scheduled for right when Dan's school usually gets out, and I had to drink cola to stay awake and so didn't sleep for shit once I made it home at 1. 

And my one rare-ish album offering is being discontinued, and etsy is raising their fees.

I am really not fond of the world right now. Wah wah.

life trudges on

I finally got back to the gym after more than a week off, and am not back to my old norms, but am at least better than that last horrible day, where I couldn't even budge my normal warm up weight.  I have been unrelentingly tired, even when I get enough sleep, for days on end now, which is really irritating, and I think part of the issue. 

Our washer finally died (it's the one that came with the house, and wasn't new then, so it lived a long and honorable life and we thank it for its service) and in researching a replacement, it looks like we should take the cabinets that were above it out so we can install a better machine. So I watch a "removing kitchen cabinets" video, trundle in to check ours out and once again, those fuckers didn't install them correctly. Or even the most easy way, as far as I can tell. No screwing them in to the drywall (and that wall is drywall, not concrete so no excuse) they used LIQUID NAILS in a line like freaking caulk to  attaching them, which means not just that we are going to need a crowbar instead of a drill, but the odds of the wall getting damaged in the process are now super high.

Some days I really miss renting.

Heated mattress pads are awesome.

Sean said tonight's outfit looked like I should be accompanied by a cheerleader. It was perhaps an off-topic outfit to see Ocean's 8 in, but I liked it. And yes, that is my high school letter jacket -- which I earned via choir and being the school mascot.

It has been quite a while since I did an Animals in Space piece, but now that I know the Tadpole Galaxy exists, I think a mama frog needs to be added to the to do list. #Repost @nasachandraxray (@get_repost) ・・・ Right now Chandra is gazing at galaxies in Draco! Nearby is the famous Tadpole Galaxy. Its tail is over 275,000 light years long, formed by tidal forces during a previous close encounter with another galaxy!

We are meeting with the school in person tomorrow about the Recent Fuckery which I'm hopeful will be fruitful.  We discussed it in general terms with the family therapist today and he shared our surprise that at a school to which bullies get sent that Dodgeball would feature heavily in the gym rotation, which makes me feel a bit better.

I am going to see Ocean's 8 on Friday with a bunch of lady friends/acquaintances; luckily, I have ascertained that we are NOT dressing for the occasion, as I am not sure my one remaining fancy dress would actually fit.
