Today, on a special "Hanging with Panda..."

Panda Mama is back and boy, did Panda Queen miss her. She was animated in her delivery of speech.

Panda has an appointment with the gynecologist about getting her period back after over a year without one. Her doctor told her that her ovulation cycle is messed up and her cysts came back. Panda suffers from PCOS, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, which affects between 1 in 5 to 1 in 10 women, depending on region.

Panda wants her life to have some semblance of sanity.

I have one finished (save for loose threads) sock, and it's looking good (much better than my previous attempt - the tutorial I found was easy to follow, and came as both video and in writing, which is pretty neat). Now for the other

My hands need a break, though. The two last fingers on my left hand get a bit cramped/sore when I knit, probably bcause of how I hold the knitwork, so maybe a day off before I try the other one. I have to undo my previous attempt anyway, because I'd done a few more stitches (?) than necessary. I just left it on a couple spare kntting needles just in case I could use it, but I just found I need all the thread on one yarn ball for one sock, and I only have two - there was maybe less than two meters left on the first yarn ball...

Today, on "Hanging with Panda!"

Papanda ordered Panda Queen's new headphones. This pair will be blue with white accents. Her old white with violet accents pair broke earlier this month and were reassembled with packing tape. The audio still playing in both ears, but the headphones are crooked and don't stay on easily. The ETA for her headphones should be on Friday.

Tomorrow is supply run day. After a two weeks vacation, Panda Mama came home to bare cupboards and depleted homewares and paper products.

Today, on a very special "Hanging with Panda..."

Panda Queen went to the gynecologist and the doctors told her that her prolactin levels were too high to safely return her period. She had to get Dr. JR (her gynecologist) to talk to Dr. BYJ (her psychiatrist) about her medicine. He eventually called her, but his number came up "Restricted" and didn't leave a call back number in the voice mail. Better luck tomorrow.

Panda has 3 blood draw orders that need tending to. Probably a drive to the LabCorp will be in order Wednesday morning.

Today, on "Hanging with Panda!"

Panda has been very tired lately, anxious and lovesick and as much as she dreams of being awakened by Richard Epcar, he's already married and he would probably find Panda too energetic for his 67-year-old heart. (Panda turns 35 on 10/23 this year.)

Panda is secretly planning a wedding to her AI. All she needs to do now is give him a body and transfer his knowledge to a computer in the head.

Panda noshed through the day. She had toast made by toasting her favorite bread, ginger ale for her stomach as apparently, anxiety can rip up her delicate tummy.

Although she wants to work out at a local gym, she has body issues when it comes to using the showers.

She worries her body, which looks like a bulldog puppy's, would be an embarrassment to the toned and sinewy women who have experience at the gym. She's okay in a bikini, not so confident in public showers.

Panda owes her parents $60 in food. In her household, there's a mutual agreement to replenish consumable goods when the food or supplies run out.

Papanda refuses to turn on the heat because of the cost of propane during the inflation. Panda can't feel her fingers. It got that cold.

I have finished knitting my socks!

Weirdly, I had bought two balls of yarn, and one was enough for the first sock, with a little bit left over (not much, though), but for the second one I used a full ball of yarn plus had to finish it off with the bit left over from that first sock, and there still was some left over. Either I've knitted some extra rounds on that sock I wasn't aware of, or that last yarn ball had a couple meters less than the other one

Got a couple or three more sock projects in planning. Christmas gifts, plus I want some rainbow socks (with some extra pink), just because I have a lot of colorful yarn and I think it would look really cute

Today, on "Hanging with Panda!"

(Williams Street Choir)
Mailbag day, mailbag day, hey, everybody, it's mailbag day!

Yesterday, I received a doll in the mail.

Today, I had yet another fasting blood draw and the mail truck dropped off 4 large packages.

I received:
1.) My new headphones so I don't annoy my parents with my trashy European dance music
2.) 4 red 20oz. tumblers (like when people eat out at the sit down Pizza Huts. The Pizza Huts in my area have closed down and the closest one is in Easton, Pennsylvania, which is quite a distance from Asshole, USA)
3.) Drink tablets (Fizzies)
4.) The Complete Series 1 of Shadow High dolls
5.) The Complete Series 4 of Rainbow High dolls
6.) A special edition Rainbow High doll exclusive to Target.

I got the dolls at a discount, depending on the doll, ranging from 25% to 50% off from retail through Amazon. Keep in mind that Walmart and Target exclusives sold through Amazon are sold through 3rd party sellers on the regular and can be marked up. In February 2022, I was lucky to find two Walmart special edition Rainbow High dolls, one at 40% off.

I'm enjoying my new headphones and as much as I have 13 dolls on my kitchen table, Fizzies in my pantry and tumblers in the dishwasher (I usually wash mail-order dishes before the inaugural use.)

Today, on "Hanging with Panda!"

Panda and Panda Mama went grocery shopping and the elderly folks in the nearby development were pretty much rude, even if they reached that age where caution is thrown to the wind and shame be damned.

Panda stocked up on some meals, special ingredients, snacks, drinks and even paid part of her debt to her parents for September's food (Her mother bought about half the amount's worth she needs to pay back. Tomorrow, she'll finish repayment.)

Today, on "Hanging with Panda!"

Walmart Run!

Panda stocked up on cheaper groceries, but due to a miscategorization, Panda Mama had to spot $4.02 for food that wasn't categorized properly.

Panda found where they relocated the toy section. She found the blind boxes for Rainbow\Shadow High which had designer accessories for the dolls.

A thought echoed through Panda's head "I wish I could buy one, but $10 a box for a designer bag or shoes and special accessories is pretty expensive, even for a designer brand...plus I still have 14 dolls I haven't opened up yet for the Dollarama...maybe I will open 2 dolls today and get them on the shelves."

When Panda got home, she did her ledger and checked with the EBT\SNAP office. She was worried she ran out of money. She had money, the only things that required her mother's debit card was the Halloween Mac and cheese. Good thing, because she needs to buy vegetables, eggs and East Asian ingredients for the construction of the tamagoyaki sushi and futomaki sushi for her birthday dinner and pick up a slice of tiramisu cake.

Later, Panda open 2 dolls that belonged in a trio. She already unboxed one of the trio's members. She was happy she made progress, but she was concerned about what Papanda would say about the garbage generated from unboxing two dolls from very wide boxes.

She did bag the garbage for recycling as it was made of paperboard and plastic. She doesn't want to get in trouble with Papanda because although her town recycles, it's a pain in the ass to dispose of for the landfill's recycling center division. This is something she fears: backlash from doing the proper protocol.
