Check, Check, Bang

Just for today I’m going to list every onerous task I’ve completed since waking up. Given the time I’m posting this and the readership I’ve lost since ceasing to post regularly, I don’t have to worry about too many seeing this. But just typing it out confers a sense of being heard that my youngest, most frightened self needs as evidence that all her hard work is being noticed. As in: Hello, void. It’s me, Little Liser, still trying….

1. Confronted my bullying landlord about the illegality of turning off the heat when temperatures are still dipping into the 30s and 40s at night. (The heat is back on as I type this.) 2. Filed my FY2021 taxes and paid the entire onerous bill. (Trump and his MAGAtrolls truly screwed the freelancer.) 3. Willed my period back into existence. (There’s no better emotional waste disposal system.) 4. Refrained from communicating with any emotional arsonists. 5. Worked on new Ruby Intuition website (Stay tuned.) 6. Had a very productive meeting with an esteemed colleague to iron out the practical details of my new super-duper super-secret project. (Doubly stay tuned.) 7. Therapy. (Cue sigh of relief). 7. Three-hour phone call with Apple until they restored the $2,300 balance on my gift cards that had mysteriously disappeared. (Repeat after me: “These are not the droids you are looking for.”) 8. Bought new Macbook Pro, which will make all aforementioned projects joyfully, abundantly easier! 9. Told Grace she was the best permakitten in the world since she is–wait for it–no longer anal-retentive (not literally, anyway).

So there it is. The goings-on of Gracie Rosmansion on April 18, Tax Day in these Allegedly United States of America. Feel free to message me about the goings-on of your day. No detail too pedestrian for this space crone alley cat woman, apparently!
