Back to the grind this week. It was a little hard to get into French tonight, but after a while it was OK. Sometimes I feel like my pronunciation is very good, but my comprehension isn’t. I guess that will come in time.
Yesterday was a packed day. After iaido, I had a date at the Ottawa Geek Market. It was just OK.
After that, I had a visit with my toddler buddy, which was awesome. I was taken aback when he greeted me at the door. Usually, he’s excited to see me but also shy about it and half hiding behind one of his parents. Yesterday, he said hello, asked me how I was, and how my weekend was. So adorable! Then he wanted me to do burpees with him hahaha. Of course, I obliged despite having done a bunch of leg work at iaido. At one point he said, “ciao”! After reading him “Stuck”, it was time for b-movie club, which featured “Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead”. It was pretty funny, though I still prefer “Cannibal the Musical”.
The itchy skin thing is persisting, though not as bad. I can’t tell if allergy medicine is helping or not. Hopefully this gets figured out soon. I’m losing less sleep at least. The last couple weeks, I’ve felt like I was barely functioning. Really not helpful for writing anything.
I realized partway through editing chapter four that I haven’t been using contractions and should, so it’s back to chapter one to be sure I get all those fixed. This is really what writing is about, nitpicking.
Anyway, I better get to bed.
