Hearth

state of the 'song

The Heart Minotaur has been removed... and everywhere the tape touched me, I look sunburned, red and swollen. I'm blistery where the actual electrodes were. Hands shaking, tears in my eyes as I was tearing the tape off, and as the water hit the inflamed, welted skin in the shower...

I'm not doing this again.

I'm just not. 48 hours in sustained contact with an allergen for what's probably insufficient data since I wasn't at my normal level of activity (couldn't go walking - rain) or rest (I wake up a lot with this thing on - not just the unwieldliness, but the pain where the electrodes are stuck to me). And I'll be in pain for the next few days at least, and my skin still hasn't fully recovered from the last Heart Minotaur, over three weeks ago...

So. Just... not.

docorion says that there may not be an Answer rather than "We're not sure what it is, but it probably won't kill you - here, take these pills." And I'm not good at dealing with unknowns like that. But I'm not going through this again. Because OW.

On the bright side, we replaced our old and busted toaster with some new hotness. In candy-apple red. Which made docorion groan when informed, as he does not believe in colored appliances. But I want my kitchen to be fun. To that end, we also purchased Halloween kitchen towels today, and as soon as I get the kitchen table cleared off, I can put on the Halloween tablecloth and we shall be right festive. Also, there are little gel bats on our front door. The rest of the decorating will happen tomorrow. :)

Also: Got a voicemail from my father while we were out this morning, thanking us for his birthday gift. He rhapsodized about it for a bit, then closed with "Well, anyway, thanks again, and I'll talk to you guys soon! Love, Dad."

"Love, Dad." Like he's writing a letter. My father has been dictating too many documents. *shakes head*
