What You've Done Today - We do not remember days, we remember moments

I have a memory foam mattress, medium firm, and I love it. There's no chance I ever go back to box spring. I don't know what the expected lifetime of a memory foam mattress is, but I've had it for over a decade and it's still great.

Sleeping well is no small matter so don't compromise on a mattress. Get the one that feels best for you even if it hurts your bank account. That's better than hurting your body. There are few investments more important.

The ones you order online nowadays are pretty amazing. It might not be available outside of the US, but I ordered one through Nectar a few years ago and it was a good price and sleeps great. It cost about half of the one I bought from the store before that and it feels the same.

Did a bit of extra shopping the last couple of days. Looks like it’s going to get very windy and quite rainy for the next 3-4 days, so got things like bottled water, dry food, candles, batteries, lpg bottles for cooking etc.

Went to a fashion expo. Looked at all the things Greek islands will try to sell to tourists this year. As one exhibitor said "nothing new, just a few new colours."

 

Got depressed, seeing how cheap things are compared to the Forkcat designer handbags I am working on.

 

Absolutely stressing out with the new business venture:

Have printed textiles with my art and we made handmade (luxury) designer handbags. But they cost a lot to make, so they cost a lot to buy. And I am not from those circles really that spend 250-300€ on a handbag, so it seems crazy.

At the same time, I used to play Warhammer and Warhammer 40K ;)

Unobtrusively informing you about my new ebook (which you should feel free to read and shower with praise).

@melkathi a mattress topper is what I have now, but it's on top of a couch instead of a mattress, so upgrading to any bed with a mattress is already a big change.

Is that the standard in Australia, no permanent gas piping to a residence? Reminds me of having to refill the tank on my BBQ.

It turned out to be a storm in a tea cup, the cyclone headed west once hitting the coast (instead of the expected southerly course), so dodging the bullet I guess. It's mixed. I used to have it provided by utility companies in my previous places, but this place doesn't unfortunately. Also, I like the smaller bottles (3.7kg) for my bbq) :)

It was mostly a precaution if water and electricity supply got disrupted.

Impatiently waiting for my stevia/1g sugar Lily's dark chocolate caramel packages, because I discovered them last month and seemingly cannot ever be entirely rid of my desire for something sweet.

I also heard about another survival type game called Enshrouded, that looked like it might be more my thing (vs. Palworld at least) but per usual when I went to look at Steam - Early Access. My Steam wishlist grows longer and longer because I seem to have no interest in AAA titles and 70% (made up statistic) of smaller budget devs are early access these days (and typically remain ea for 4-5+ years). Which is fine, but I'm not getting any younger.  When I hit 65 or so, I'm not going to even wishlist ea titles anymore.  😛

If you haven't been to this doctor, they may want to get a baseline for a few visits and then drop you to annual physicals unless something happens.

Or they may just want that sweet, sweet insurance money.

I had a doctor who ordered EVERY test imaginable for my annual visits. I suspect it was billing related, but was always interesting to see the results :)

My doctor is a bit like that. A long shopping list of things for the pathology to test for 😂

But that is Ok, I'm like $35 out of pocket for that annual expense and it's nice to know that I don't suffer from anything cholesterol or diabetes related (among the long list of things being checked). Despite my childish demeanor at times, I'm not entirely young anymore 😖

So this frail old man needs to look after his body a bit, every now and then.

^ I would like some doctors like that. My experience with (Kaiser) doc's the past 10 or so years is that getting them to run any tests is like pulling your own teeth. I wonder how much being male vs. female (both re: patient and doctor) can affect that in some cases. I kinda feel like when hubby has any symptoms enough for him to seek aid, the docs pull out all the stops re: tests, scans, and possibilities and stuff. When I go in and mention something I deem peculiar or painful, I get more dismissive reactions, ibuprofen or advice to relax.  Well, except when hubby bought me in delirious/nigh unconscious, ofc. 😛 

I'm sure it's highly variable/random/depends on symptoms etc but yeah. It feels like that sometimes.

There is a long history of medical doctors more readily dismissing symptoms reported by women. Goes, at the very least, all the way back to ancient Egypt and Greece. Hysteria - also known as female madness - was linked to having a sad uterus. It is also quite literally in the name, hystéra, meaning uterus.

Yeah, but we're not many who still post. And Sawyer of course didn't work at Obsidian when he joined.
