I think I'm going to throw all the pillows in the trash and burn them.

It's funny how you don't really realize there's an issue with something you own and rely on until your brain takes over for you and throws your pillows on the floor in the middle of the night and you wake up with just blankets. My enjoyment of getting an extra hour of sleep last night was destroyed by my complete lack of decent sleep. I still have a headache and my tummy doesn't feel great. I stayed up a LITTLE later to finish my fashion show stuff, but not as bad as DragonCon.

My two outfits are more or less complete. If they take me again next year, I think I'm going to do a dress that looks nothing like it could be a steampunk outfit. I kind of want to completely remake the skirt to something smoother and more modern, but at the same time, it's suppose to be art-to-wear, so I ended up making it more costumey. Either way, my Boys&Girls contact and my Model both love my outfits, so maybe I'm not too far off the mark. I don't know. My hat for the ready-to-wear did not get finished because it was a total failure, and I may rework the art-to-wear hat depending on how it shows up in photos.

My anxiety was all over the fucking place yesterday.

I took a few breaks to play X-Com, Enemy Unknown on PC. It's a remake of the original game, and pretty good. I've named all of my regular troops after ponies. I swear it wasn't intentional, but I have mostly female troops and only 2 significant males that get rotated out. Lt. Rainbow Dash is my best sniper. She is insanely good. I don't have a Rarity because I can't picture her in armor. Pinkie Pie throws rockets. I also swear I didn't pick their specialties - it just worked out that way. The game also assigns nicknames to troops automatically after a handful of missions, so those are pretty funny too.

Yay.. I think the Aleve is finally kicking in.. I'm starting to feel slightly more human again.

So, despite the fact I have to change in the bathroom at work, I packed a change of gym clothes so I could go running instead of walking on my lunch break.  I'd taken some time off after I hurt my foot, but I managed to walk the last two days. I feel a little silly doing it, but I did it! I changed in the bathroom, exited the building, set zombie mobs to 'on', and started jogging.

My asthma did not entirely agree with this decision, but I did pretty well. I didn't sweat too much, and I ran or jogged when the voices tell me to, which is pretty often. I out-jogged one mob of zombies without too much difficulty.  On the way back, with thankfully good timing, a second mob of zombies appeared on my ass, while I was already running.

The way the game determines if you evade a zombie mob is that you have to increase your current speed by 20%. I was already running, not flat out, but already chugging along pretty well.  Again, my asthma was not thrilled with me, but I out ran the second mob of zombies :) ( for the record, it doesn't affect game play at all if you run or walk. This is my third time through playing the missions, so my rule for this time is - obey the voices, run when they tell you to)

I completed mission 1 for the third time around, in 3.09 miles and 42 minutes. Not great time, I know, but I'll do better tomorrow when I have my inhaler with me, hopefully. 

I really am fond of this app.

In other news, (ha) someone stole 2 of the 6 bottles of dollar spices I picked up for everyone to use in the breakroom. Dick.

Done this week so far:
1. Ripped the carpet off the stairs, including carpet tack sticks, staples and padding, off 14 stairs. Jason is planning on picking up the oak hardwood treads on Friday or Saturday morning and beginning to replace our steps.  They'll be stained after we pick out our hardwood flooring we want to replace the other, more entirely horizontal carpet in the rest of the house.
2. Cleaned the kitchen and made steps to de-clutter the living room. Most of the useless crap we have is in paper format, and we can't just dump it willy-nilly. 
3. Preliminary designs done for CFAC. Kinda happy with it, needs more work, I think. Picked up fabric samples.  Forgot to use my 50% off coupon for Hancocks. Drat. Need to poke my machine and see if I can use it tomorrow at all. 

To do:
1. Polish up resume.
2. Make gluten-free pumpkin-cinnamon rolls. (pick up pumpkin and cream cheese)
3. Buy Kings Dominion ticket for haunting night online, should save a few bucks
4. Sketch more ideas for CFAC
5. see if there's anything else I need to order online or through ebay for my Halloween costume - to allow for shipping time. I think I'm good with what I have so far, but.....
