Life has been a little difficult lately.... a lot of construction noise going on around my home, added to a back injury that's forced me to stay in. I take a walk every evening and do core exercises - recovery is slow but steady.
As for the noise, earplugs help a little, and so does sitting at my work table (I have to keep remembering to sit up straight and not give in to slouching) making artist trading cards. These two have just been listed here.
