Full of Fail  
So, yeah. Things are not going well. 

Still coughing up a storm. Can't find any of my tools because the garage is a disaster. Even if I could find anything out there, it's covered with a quarter inch of sawdust that has been there since July. Even if I wanted to clean that up myself instead of continuing to delude myself that Mr S might someday do it, my ShopVac is magically missing. Not that I really want to try since the sawdust makes me (guess? ) cough like crazy.

Tried to reach for a drill and ended up knocking over stuff into a bucket of suspicious liquid, splashing it all over. Of course, I can't get an answer as to what they mystery fluid is in a timely manner. Turns out not to matter after all, since I can't find the drill bits (see garage issues above). Tried to hang a picture but it slipped and the frame and glass broke. Managed to actually clean up up without cutting myself - Miracle! Upsetting conversations and not actually talking to any of the people I might have been interested in talking to. So angry and frustrated, I could just spit. So depressed about this whole mess, I considered just having a good cry to get it out of my system, but that coughing jag just lead to needing to add washing the rug to the list of things to do.

Worst thing? I can't even have some Scotch because it makes me (you guessed it) cough. Somebody just shoot me.

Edit: Oh, nice. Now the little muscle twitch in my shoulder is back. Fabulous.

Too irritating = phlebitis.

Were I closer I would volunteer to help.

Is there anyone local who can lend a hand?

Can you just imagine?
eithnieithni on October 22nd, 2010 02:27 pm (UTC)
Yes. Bring Rufinia.

Yeah, I have a friend coming over on Saturday.

Oo! I know! Scotch + sawdust + fire insurance!

Actually, I have a spare shop vac if you need one. If I get done with my writing and grading over the weekend, I can swing by and help, too!

Even if I could borrow it on Sunday when we meet for dinner, that would be cool. It will be too late for the showing, but still helpful. Thanks.

she's got one now :) Eithni, please note the orange extension cord on it is also Tyson's.
eithni: backliteithni on October 23rd, 2010 04:01 am (UTC)
Thank you so much for bringing it over. I'll keep all the pieces together! Although, speaking of that - do you want extra pieces like the extension and vacuum head pieces since that's all that's left of my ShopVac?

Today will be a better day.
eithni: lightningeithni on October 22nd, 2010 01:58 pm (UTC)
One can hope.

Sorry to hear things have been so crappy. Wish we were closer so we could feed you and commiserate and lament the cruelty of the scotch gods.
eithnieithni on October 22nd, 2010 01:58 pm (UTC)
Thanks... Are you guys coming down for teslacon?
Doug Hulick / Simon Morcarswords_and_pens on October 22nd, 2010 07:11 pm (UTC)
Not planning on it. Too many other things going on, and steampunk, while tres cool, isn't something I have time for right now. Okay, I may *write* some at some point, but I definitely don't have time to put together a costume at present--although I have an idea for one for "some day". :)

I wish I lived closer, and I'm so glad you have a list of people already offering to help out this weekend. I'd so be one of them if I could.

Do you have any idea how I admire your determination to keep pushing forward? Probably not, since words cannot describe my admiration appropriately.

Take care of yourself, and let other people help.

Thanks... I'm trying to be better about not being I-can-do-it-myself! Girl. :P
