Many more purchased things from the latest spree of therapeutic retail hell have arrived, so the list exploded like a teleported pig-monster.

Far fewer things were taken off this week because my schedule/routine was thrown for a loop by getting the second vaccine dose on Tuesday. No major side effects, maybe one minor side effect, but the appointment was so early in the morning I didn’t sleep the night before and my schedule’s been off ever since.

Again, more stuff was purchased, but this time it is counterbalanced by my having crossed a lot of other stuff off so the general trend was still downward.

Last week was mostly albums from 2021. This week may or may not be more of the same.
