I'm finally moving over to Down Under Views, so be sure to check me out over there! :)
See that? No, I didn't just decide to create a colorful towel path from the lounge out to the back door just for kicks (though that is a thought for another day). This is what happens when I have one of my, what I like to call, 'Moments of Idiocy'.
Our laundry is set up so we basically have a tube that empties the water out into the laundry sink. Simple. But last night I took that tube and hooked it up on the faucet knobs behind the washer so I could wash Asimov (what? he has fleas...) without it getting in the way.
Flash forward a bit over twelve hours and I decide that I should try to catch up on laundry while I'm working. I have enough energy for that.
But guess who forgot to put the tube back in the sink.
MOI. (See that there? MOI = Me = Moments of Idiocy. Cleeeever.)
The good news is that the laundry washing machine, freezer, doors, walls and floor as well as the hallway for and part of the lounge got a nice cleaning. The better news is that we have hardwood floors instead of carpet in the hall and lounge.
Still, that's really the last time I want to see the unit we're living in turning into a lake because of me. If it happens again, it should at least be because I've suddenly developed the awesome superpower of creating rain indoors.
My body decided to throw my for a loop by making me think my appendix was going to blow up. As it turns out, it was my sneaky ovary making all the fuss.
So I’m home now, but I’m sore, exhausted and having a bit of a hard time catching up with things.
Slowly but surely…
Day 30 → A letter to yourself, tell yourself EVERYTHING you love about yourself
As I look at this prompt, I can't tell if this is going to be a long post or a short one...
Let's get to it, shall we?
I love your enthusiasm. It's an enthusiasm that sometimes gets you in trouble in one way or another, but is something no one has ever been able to take away from you. That love for life is what you'll take with you to the end.
I love that you are still discovering your passions. It is frustrating sometimes to not know who you are or where you are going, but the thrill of discovery is awesome and you still have so much of your life to shape.
Finally, I love your strength. I know you don't think you are strong and I know there have been some very tough times when you were weak, but overall... You don't believe it, but you have done some amazing things that took an amount of strength that some people never learn in their entire lives.
Be well. Do well.

Day 29 → Something you hope to change about yourself. And why.
Physically, I want to lose weight. Not just for my health, not just to conceive but also to show myself that I am more than my past and that I can do it. *muscle pose*
Mentally, I want to get past my hangups so I can fully live life and do everything I want to do with it. I want to be brave and effervescent, smart and yet not cynical and just a plain lover of life.
Spiritually, if you want to call it that, I want to know myself as a person. I want to be at peace with myself.

Day 28 → What if you were pregnant or got someone pregnant, what would you do?
Well, if I got someone pregnant, I would have to laugh off my rear end and enlist myself as a miracle freak of nature. ;)
Seriously, if I were pregnant, I would celebrate. I would be a little freaked out because I'm not at all prepared in body or in mind, but I would still celebrate. I have PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) so I am a little nervous that, when the time comes, it will be difficult to conceive. But when I do conceive... Well, I know that I can't imagine it now and that I will be nervous, but it will be amazing.
Oh, and I'd tell The Bloke first, face to face.
