    Not so fun fact. Obituaries in local newspapers charge by the motherfucking word. I would of had a MUCH different process had I known this, instead of agonizing over the whole thing I wanted to write, freaking out that it was nearly 600$, and having to keep chopping it up to get it to something slightly less fucking ridiculous. I was trying to figure out why spouses of survivors are in parenthesis... this is why. If you ever need to write an obituary in the US, you have 100-150 words before the price becomes fucking astronomical. Just a heads up since a lot of us have parents who are up there /sigh.

      I don’t remember the cost of my stepdad’s obit. I think for my mom, I decided to just put in death notices as they were less costly and I had 2 newspapers to submit to....it does seem disrespectful that so much is charged for a thoughtful essay of a dear one’s life.πŸ˜’

          Streak 109, walking and yoga.

          Ok ok ok crying ok.

          Had a dinner party last night that my dad would of loved to have, the younger couple (glee club leader and his wife) he'd been planning to have for dinner the week he died, my aunt and uncle from mom's side who my dad was super close with, and another set of good friends.

          Feeling ok about leaving, step mom has really awesome close neighbors and is going to get things sorted out acceptably. I need to get back to my space and get myself sorted out.

          I've had a headache for 2 weeks now and nothing I take touches it. I think my body is misreading emotional grief as pain.

            Gad your stepmom has a good emotional support system around her, now take a bit care of yourself too , as you notice (get back into your space). So that you can alltogether heal (yes, that's a real wound), and be long-term helpful to your stepmom, which you cannot be if you're not well yourself.
            Hoping this reminder was not too heavy handed, lots of hugs. Luna sends purrs, that's all she can do but she can do it.

                      Current streak 112, walking, yoga, baggage carrying.

                      ( PetiteSheWolf that is not unreasonably tough and you have a point. I am back home, and she got a ton of her to do list done on her own yesterday. I need to find my routine now.)

                      Going to get back to logging food/fluids to see if headache is fluids or psychosomatic. (It is not blood pressure, I checked that, so I won't spend $$ on a dr in a panic (currently totally uninsured, America sucks) unless it goes past a month.)

                        Our health care situation is completely ridiculous. I hope you feel better soon!

                          Could the headache be a post Covid thing? Ugh.

                            CODawn I thought of that....and my fucking rediculous hair loss definitely is (I have a LOT of hair, thank goodness or I'd be worried abt baldness >.>) ... but this started when I found out he was dead. It is either body misinterpreting emotional pain as physical, or that I haven't been talking proper care of self (strange sleep patters, probably low on fluids) or both. Pain killers (my migraine script, alive, ibuprofen, acetaminophen, asprin, and several (careful, low dosage)combinations of those) have not touched it at all, which is what makes me think psychosomatic (but I will fix sleep and fluids anyway). It isn't bad enough that I need to lie down etc but it is just present enough to annoy me.

                            Managed to get the entirity of my "fave" (ie most likely to make me cry bc he is main vocals + oddly appropriate even if it was meant as a vietnam war protest song) of my dad's songs onto insta.

                              Low fluids, poor sleep and stress can all cause these things too. Ugh. I'm so sorry.

                                Restarting "healthy habits" with getting up in the morning, leaving the apartment every day, and keeping on top of hygiene. Will put the rest back in a few weeks.

                                Started Gauntlet yesterday. My bell (25lbs) is too heavy for some of it bc I got it w 2 handed swings in mind, but I can't get a lighter one easily atm.. so I will use it and just swap to a dumbbell when I get in trouble bc it's too heavy. Did 1 yesterday w it (I did not quite practice my deck squat w last exercisebut it was a near thing), and for 2 today I swapped to 15lb dumbbell for the bicep curls.

                                Been sort of doing pushup challenge, as wall ones, when I remember.

                                On day 25 of 30 days of yoga, now. Migggggghhhhht be skipping meditation days tho. And where it asks for peaceful warrior, triangle, warrior I do warrior, peaceful, triangle bc I like how that flows >.> And sometimes adding a brief press into down dog when it goes from updog to a lunge etc. Also fuck hero pose it can diaf. But I am doing dome sort of yoga based on the program each day, damnit.

                                Also I still have a fucking headache and Int the shark cat is still a shitty kitty, altho her weight seems stable and her mood is good. She no longer falls for pill pockets tho.
