OMG it’s been awhile, I’m sorry folks. So, what’s been going on in the KnyghtMare household? Nothing super exciting – that’s for sure. At least that’s what I see.
Last weekend froggy and I went out on a girl’s day shopping spree. We bought new purses, went out to lunch and then some makeup supplies. We were going to get our nails done too but both of us wore out. First froggy had a freshly lanced cyst that was healing (more on that in a bit) and my back popped and I was in some pain too.
I had a great time though.
When froggy arrived she had a cyst that was giving her troubles. Through the evening it got worse and by 2am when Master woke me up to figure out sleeping arrangements I helped convince froggy that she really needed to go to the ER if it was hurting so bad and she couldn’t sleep. So a really tired Master and froggy went to the ER and I waited here.
The came back with antibiotics and a patched up froggy, but at least she was feeling a bit better. Since then she’s had to go back because the antibiotics weren’t working and the infection had spread. But I think she’s on the right course now and is getting better everyday.
Today is the first game of the football season here in town. I enjoy watching all the people walk to the stadium from my balcony (we are less than a mile from there) and then the march back to their cars in a mood dependent on the outcome of the game. Bring on game season.
Of course that also means we’ll be seeing froggy less because she drives a taxi on all home game days in her town (another college town) so that she can make extra money. So she’s there instead of here today. And she won’t be here next week either.
But KM is going to spend a few days down there from the 10th to the 14th, we’ll both be spoiled. Me with private alone time and her with time alone with Master. It should be good for both of us.
On to other things… I’m preparing to do Nanowrimo again this year for Submissive Guide content. Last year I topped out at 30K words and this year my goal is 35K. The content I wrote during the month of November last year covered posts for 4 months! This year’s focus will be video posts, ecourses and ebooks. Posts come a lot easier for me than that content so might as well throw myself into the hard stuff. I have a series of posts already written for November so I don’t have to focus on the site at the same time. Should be a good time. I’ll be stocking up on pain meds and finding better wrist cuffs that I can use while typing so hopefully I can stave off a Carpal Tunnel flare up long enough to get close to my goal.
My grocery shopping plans are going well. The pantry is filling up with a number of items that can make meals in a pinch and I have a relatively full stockpile of non-foods. I think just one more trip of those and I’ll have a 6 month supply of them to not have to worry to badly about adding shampoo or razors to the grocery budget.
It feels good to be able to buy meat in bulk and I’m pinning down recipes that are frugal, flexible and taste great for the core of the meal plan. I don’t have lunches together very well and that is my next goal after I am able to successfully bring the food budget down $100/mo. My goal for this Wednesday’s shopping trip is $250. I will be making crockpot pizza sauce, shredded chicken for tacos, Low Carb Gluten-Free zucchini muffins for breakfasts for me and I have a pot roast in the crock pot right now for french dips for Master’s lunches that should last 5 sandwiches.
My cleaning goal for this week is to get the closet done that I’ve not finished and take another load to Good Will. Then I need to vacuum to baseboards in the living room and go through my fall and winter clothes tub and aggressively sort, toss and donate.
Hopefully it won’t be too long between updates again.
