I wrote about 1400 words yesterday and did a good bit of editing on the my Captive Audience fic because I figured out, fairly concretely, what one character is trying to do. One of the [community profile] pod_together fics has been recorded. I have to listen to it today (I'm going to wait until Scott's up so I can turn it up a bit. The ear buds I've got only work on one side). I haven't heard anything from the person who's doing the other fic, so I don't know what's going on with that. I expected them to ask for tweaks or even major edits, but I told them two weeks ago that the fic was done (and posted to AO3 but not yet revealed) and haven't heard a word.

I need to look up the due date for Captive Audience. I don't expect to have trouble meeting it, but it's better if I put it on my calendar. Also, there were a couple of treats I wanted to write, and knowing the due date will tell me if I have time.

I only managed the c-PAP for about four hours last night because, after I got up to take my thyroid medication, my nose started running. I'm still having a little trouble seven hours later. I'm hoping that the c-PAP is something my sinuses will eventually get used to and just stop acting up over.

Cordelia requested a trip to a particular sandwich place, Which Wich, as part of our Sunday library expedition. She ate there on her own a couple of weeks ago (the first time she'd done anything like that), and she really liked the sandwich she got then. The place is only a block from the library.

I have a lot of DVDs to watch this week, one three DVD set that can't be renewed and one two DVD set that can't be renewed. I think the second DVD for the latter is all extras that I may or may not want to watch. I've also got a movie that can be renewed and three remaining DVDs of a lecture series. I want to finish and return the lecture series because I have another that should come in this week. That one has a wait list, so I'll be needing all the time I can manage to power through it in four weeks.

Scott and I started listening to a short audiobook last night. Astrophysics for People in a Hurry by Neil DeGrasse Tyson, read by the author, only runs three and a half hours. Normally, Scott listens to audiobooks while driving, but we agreed that Tyson's voice might not be that helpful with the whole staying awake/alert while driving part of things. I'm not sure we're hitting much information that's new to either of us, but, at least for me, it's information I know but don't actually understand well. I keep hoping that, if I go over it one more time, I'll really get it.

My hands and left elbow hurt a lot yesterday, not as much as on Saturday but enough to make me reluctant to pick anything up.

Drat. I finally got all the insurance claims ready to mail, and I missed today's pick up. It's so unpredictable when the mail carrier will come by, that it's easy to think I'm in time and not be. I'm going to try to get Scott to drop the envelopes at the post office on Green Road when he wakes up. If he wakes in time, we'll be going out that way anyway to visit the bank. (He thought I'd already done the bank trip. Which explains why he looked at me funny each time I mentioned that we needed to go. Except-- Why on earth would I mention it if I'd already been?)

I need to remember that kiwi lime scented VO5 conditioner is something I'm allergic to. I forgot to record the scent that was a problem last fall, so Scott bought it again, and I used it again. I smelled it before putting it on, several times, and it wasn't a problem like that, only after it was on my hair. The scent got stronger at that point.

Cordelia's giving me a hard time about getting DVDs of things that I could watch streaming. I keep pointing out that I just don't think to turn on the TV unless I've got a DVD in hand. She took that as me not knowing how to stream things and was quite patronizing about it. I know how. I just don't think to do it 90% of the time, and when I do, it's generally at a point when I can't use the TV. (Streaming on my laptop makes doing other things while I watch considerably harder.)
