    Cindy,
    I haven't started it yet, for the past two days I have been doing one of my online classes, so far I have a 97 percent in there, from doing the course work and taking the mini test I went through one module in two days that's about five sections, I have four more five section modules to go, I have also been cramming for the unit one module final. Right now I am taking a break and may go back to cramming, this one counts big time and you can only take it once.

    pk, according to Goodreads, several people have bought it and haven't read it yet. Sounds like you are really enjoying your classes. WTG. I'm fixing to update the scene chart on my crime novel.

    Wondering where the hell my stimulus is and when I'm actually going to get it...

    Unlike rounds 1 and 2, where I got it almost with no issue, round 3, decided to make me among the 30 mil social security dropped the ball on and didn't forward to the IRS till last Thursday, so among 30 mil homies, I sit and wait....

    I'm in the same boat. I hadn't heard about the Thursday thing. Maybe we'll get it Wednesday or next week. According to a Microsoft news article, they're already talking about a fourth stimulus.

    What am I doing. Going to do a piece of admin work on the forum and then game.

    What am I doing right now? About to blog on the DID blog, and listening to a TikTok live with someone who calls herself "The Trauma Lady." (PK, if you're not already following her, you should.) She's reading through "The Body Keeps The Score" and editing out the triggering examples from people's experiences.

    With all of the 97% stuff going viral on TikTok, I've been a triggered mess. This live is therapeutic IMO, and I'm surrounded by people who are also triggered by the same stuff because we've all been THROUGH the same stuff. And now I'm off to edit my rant in the pet peeves thread because NOW I remembered WHY I popped in there to begin with. *facepalm*

    Ria, I follow the trauma lady. Right now just waking up, trying to figure out a routine to where I can get, gaming, school work, house cleaning, reading, writing my book and blogging in all in one day as well as making sure I eat and spend time with hubby.

    Sweet! Sunday afternoons she does a livestream from noon Central time until whenever where she reads a chapter or two of The Body Keeps The Score, editing out the triggering life stories. Then she gets on live twice more during the week, USUALLY Tuesday and Thursday at 10am Central time.

    I'm about to get started on a birthday card. Supervisor's birthday is Saturday and she LOVES Baby Grogu, so I'm going to see if I can buy an image on Cricut Design Studio to make the card. I don't buy images I won't use again, and Baby Grogu....I want SO badly to make a mask with him on it that says, "This Is The Way." ROFL.

    Got a lil update on this mess...

    Social Security finally sent over the direct deposit info of some 30 mil beneficiaries (that don't normally file taxes) to the IRS and we "SHOULD" start seeing our funds in the bank accounts around the 7th. They plan on updating our info in the "get my payment" thingie on the IRS website over the coming weekend..

    That's great. Thanks for sharing. The 7th makes sense because they usually arrive on Wednesdays. Hope you get it.

    Right now, I'm messing around FAD and munching on peanut butter and saltine crackers after working on the Our Town blog that I transferred to my author website. It's going to be a loooong process to finish all three blogs, but at least it'll be right click protected (the code I had on Blogger wouldn't work on Windows 10).

    Great news, MartyMcP!

    Right now I'm watching the original Footloose, yes, with Kevin Bacon, and working on a few things. Roommate wanted a shirt that says, "[Eff] Around and Find Out," because it's something he ALWAYS says. ROFL. Also, I need to remake my two favorite masks. I lost my Black Widow one a couple of weeks ago, and last weekend the pup chewed up my "Insert Tacos Here" mask. SO I need to remake those two, and add another that says "Coffee Goes Here" and probably another one with Baby Grogu that says "This Is The Way" on it. I've got a five pack of masks, so I have one more to do something with.

    I loved it at the theater, Ria. I could actually hear in them thar days, but not anymore, thus it just would not be the same.

    Paying bills, reading an article about the SSI, SSD, Railroad, stimulus payout due April 7.

    Doing FAD Admin work.

    Man, I'm glad the forum is back up. I thought we were being attacked by bots again--the alert page said it might be an attack. But it was something else. AW has been down since about January 25, 2021 because of bot attack the admin over there says.

    Now, I'm either going back to bed or do some rework on my book. There's some scenes that need to be rework and/or reoriented. BECAUSE. I found my lost first draft day before yesterday. YaY!

    Dealing with the flu right now, my stomach is so sore from being sick, I am not going to be around tomorrow as we are getting a new internet provider and they have to come out to set it up in the living room so I don't know if they are going to have to drill a hole in the wall, there is already one there for the cable and some panel that looks like an old phone wall jack that was put in and it says ATT on it, that is who we are going with for our internet, as they have a better deal than our current provider, which has been having issues at least once a week on their end. So yeah time for a new internet provider.

    I'm trying to schedule mine. I work with the public, and I think I need this. However, my store is extremely shorthanded (I ran drive by myself most of today in addition to assisting a day two trainee) so I REALLY need to plan ahead and request days off in advance. I talked to my GM about that yesterday and he agreed that was the right thing to do.

    By requesting the day(s) off in advance, they can be prepared and fill my slot. Even though I told the AM (assistant manager) just today, "My job is to run drive through like a damned DIVA, pester GM, and be in the way." ROFLMAO. Yes she agreed that was what she hired me for.

    Right now? Watching Grey's on Netflix and drinking. I've earned it. I kind of effed up earlier today. While on the bus home, I posted to Instagram my "coffee goes here" mask and my roommates "eff around and find out" t-shirt I made for him. (If we're FB friends, it's on my page. If not, I can post it in the crafty hags thread upon request.) It wasn't supposed to be posted to my FB. I posted JUST the mask on FB FOR A REASON. *facepalm* Had I known it would also go to FB, I would have used the edited shirt pic where I put an emoji over the effword.

    ANYWAY I get notifications that my mom and homophobic sister have commented on my post and go check. Sure enough. The Insta post also went to FB, and they BOTH called the shirt "filth." *rolls eyes* Not really surprised, because it DOES have the effword on it. BUT it wasn't supposed to go to FB. I quickly fixed the privacy to exclude family, and deleted their comments without responding to them.

    Remember, I grew up in a household where sex, sexuality, and even body parts was NOT talked about. Swearing was even more taboo. Needless to say, once I was on my own, I developed a mouth that would make a sailor blush. And in two languages, English and Spanish. My sister, after multiple mission trips to Mexico, speaks Spanish fluently. *sigh*

    One was my mom, initials CH, and the other was my homophobic sister, initials SC. I won't divulge their names here, NOBODY needs to go attacking them on my behalf. Anyone who's friends with me and has seen their comments, DO NOT ATTACK THEM. Please. For ME. Don't. Because if you do, I'll delete it.

    I know you're not. You're on my TikTok, though.

    Right now I'm about to blog. Watching Sarah Hester Ross on YouTube because her voice is soothing for me. These blog posts are going to be difficult to write but need to be done. I've put them off a few days now.

    I'm wide awake after having napped off and on most of the day. It's sexual assault awareness month, and I'm about to blog on the DID blog and the new sexual abuse/assault survivor blog. I don't know about the rules for sharing blogs here, so I'll err on the side of caution and not share it. Inbox me here or on FB and I'll give it to you.

    I also did something on TikTok I don't normally do. I told my story in a 45-second nutshell to Demi Lovato's song "Warrior." I obviously didn't have time to squeeze everything in that I remember, a lot was left out. The hardest stuff to talk about.

    Just finished my writing session on the crime novel. Finally got all my chapters oriented up to the last two Miami socialite disappearances. Tomorrow I'll need to catch up on my scene charting.

    Yes Ria, that I am on your tiktok,
    Welcome back Fad!
    Right now just ate and am sitting up for a bit as we ate late and with IBS that is a no no so now I have to wait for 45 mins or so before I can go lay down and read some more. My mental state isn't that great right now so I am struggling and all I want to do is stay in bed and watch youtube videos, read, or sleep.

    Still writing. I'm on a roll. It's about time. Lol. After I spent all that time last year and in January getting my historical ready I was burnt out for a while. I've been writing of course, but not like this. I think finding the lost manuscript inspired me. I would love to finish the second draft by May first.

    Finished a flashpoint chapter of my crime book and worked on the blog homepages that I've transferred to my author website. Now I may play games. May write some more. Or go back to bed.
