Damn this will be another long night of intestinal cramps and pain and nothing actual being produced for it. I may have to throw the finger-sticks aside and spend the night eating apples and drinking prune juice or something. My friend Dez and Lisa sent a package filled with assorted nuts, which usually act like Drano crystals on my system. I might have some of them along the way. And will continue drinking lots and lots of water. One thing from the doctor visit that sticks in my head is that he specifically said “Don’t strain yourself.” He was talking about working and normal activities, but I’m pretty sure that includes straining in the bathroom. So I seriously need to find a way to get the intestinal tract open and flowing right and regular.
Speaking of water, as I was coming out of the bedroom and past the kitchen to come sit and type, I flung my birthday shawl around my shoulders and the edge of it caught and flung my water bottle off the counter and onto the floor. It emptied half its contents into the carpet. Dammit. But it was JUST water, so I blotted what I could and called it good enough.
But Hey!!! Trump got his ass impeached! And Pelosi is not sending the articles of impeachment to the Senate until she sees that the Senate has laid out the rules for a fair trial in the Senate. Slick move on her part. I couldn’t bring myself to listen to all the Republicans in the House wail about how unfair the whole thing is. Chris Matthews noted (as I’m sure everyone else did), that NONE of the GOP actually defended Trump’s actions, or even his character or anything. That says a lot.
I’ve been trying to think of how I can change my dyeing processes so that I don’t have to do any real lifting. I’ve been doing the same thing(s) for so long that it will be a significant shift in my work.
Someone asked if I had considered opening a Patreon account, but I had assumed those were more for supporting people putting out regular content, like videos or some other such thing, so that fans and supporters could offer monetary support on either a regular monthly basis or a per-product basis (like $1 or $2 per video produced). And Patreon patrons get extra bonuses not offered to regular YouTube viewers who aren’t Patreon patrons. I might look into that some more, but I honestly don’t know what I could produce on a regular enough basis. I do know that I have to produce income on a regular basis.
Well, I don’t have much else to say at the moment. Just sitting here frustrated with so many things.
