Personal Digest Saturday: October 24 – October 30

Life news this week: 
  • Saturday I dove into a week of preparation for my Halloween party, because I knew it was going to be my last weekend before the party actually happened. I wanted to use having a party as an excuse to clean my house, so I set about cleaning the office room. My mom came over and helped me clean some of my toys and hung out with me, and we ate macaroni and nothing. I stayed up all night cleaning the office.
  • Sunday I completed the Great Office Cleaning of 2015. Since this is where I spend most of my time, I really like that the office room is so clean now! I also cleaned up the hallway and did some laundry. I also posted a video about demisexual invalidation.
  • On Monday after work I cleaned my bedroom. Thoroughly. Like, even under the bed. And then I redecorated for Halloween. Looks so nice!
  • On Tuesday I cleaned the bathroom, which was the final room to clean. And I started making the food that could be made early, like the cookies that keep for a long time. I made ginger molasses dough for my animal cookies and spent the evening cutting out tiny shapes to bake.
  • Wednesday was Jeaux Day and our restaurant was IHOP, where I had a coupon for a free stack of pancakes. We also watched the latest Gravity Falls (I screamed a lot, I'm afraid), and then after Jeaux left I swept my porch, baked two pumpkin pies, and drew the pencils for my Halloween poster.
  • Thursday morning I got up early so I could do some errands before work. I dropped some stuff off at a clothes donation place and did grocery shopping. Then I came home and did a Skype interview with someone at Convergence magazine who's covering asexual media representation, and afterwards I made my cream cheese pumpkin roll and my autumn leaf cookies. And got my windows washed and some final decorations up. (I wanted to hang shiny spiders from the ceiling.)
  • And Friday I did some last shopping, finished drawing my comic, and made vegan pumpkin brownies, banana muffins, and pumpkin muffins. And colored my Halloween door sign for my party. Huzzah!
    Places featured:
        • Blogger wearmanyhats photographed a copy of my book and declared intent to highlight its text and read it aggressively in front of family.
            Reading progress:

            • Completed reading: Well, as you could see by my week-in-review, I was pretty busy and I decided not to try to cram in reading too. I didn't finish anything this week. Back to it next week!
            • Currently reading: The Forgotten Sisters by Shannon Hale.
