This is so sweet!

The best thing about every day is my baby. Yesterday we had our first trip to the pool <3

That's absolutely brilliant :)

A friend came out as trans a few months ago. Prior to this his relationship with his girlfriend was sort of brushed under the carpet by his family, but now he's come out his family are being incredibly supportive, which is wonderful. I must admit that at times I'm slightly envious of his new facial hair.


The best thing about my day is that I completed the first draft of some internal guidance for my small government department, which should add extra help in our quest to safeguard the assets of people who lack mental capacity to look after their own money.

I. Just. KILLED. My work presentation. Seriously, I should do this for a living. BOOM GOES THE DYNAMITE. I got emails and praise from people I barely know. I am so freaking proud of myself!! Not to get all braggy, but I was nervous, and worked REALLY hard on this!

I discovered today that I love my job. Everyone works well together as a team, and I'm not looked down upon because I'm the newbie and am still learning tons of things. If I could transplant my hospital to Colorado, I would be living the ultimate life.

A pretty famous scientist just wrote to ask me to teach her how to use some (admittedly) difficult software because she "heard through the grapevine that [I'm] good at it". Also, dudes, 6th day in a row in the same place. That hasn't happened in more than 2 months! (I celebrated by sleeping in until ..... 2pm. I'm such an early bird that 7am = sleeping in, so I'm seriously impressed by this.)

Yay!

Best thing of my day was finishing an Ikea bookcase. (bought a bookcase with glass doors and spent several hours to get white foil on the glass; putting on the foil took way more time than putting the bookcase together)
It will be used to store random stuff in my hallway, so that's why I had to do something with the transparent glass panels.

Woo! Looks good there, veg.eric. (And looks even better with the ladder & everything else gone!)

that's super awesome! That's a really scary thing about working in healthcare. There's no way to come into the job knowing everything you need to, so you need to learn a lot on the job! I don't think I want to work as an RD in a hospital, but if I did that'd be the most nervewracking thing. People were so awful to me as an intern.

That's really great that people help you out and understand that you're learning stuff!

Thanks, IDJI. I've worked in a lot of different hospitals, and not all were great. It's nice to have camaraderie amongst your coworkers and to feel genuinely supported. If I were an RD, I don't think I'd want to work in a hospital either. There's so many different settings you can choose, fortunately.

It's biker boy's birthday and we just spent the afternoon wandering around Fremont people-watching and strolling the Sunday fair and sipping summery drinks, then went to dinner with some of his friends at a restaurant with a pretty view of the Sound and the Olympics, then went for ice cream at a place that always has a few vegan flavors. It was a nice, chill, fun day and he totally loved his birthday present. And now he's 40.

Maddux had his 2 month appointment on Friday, was up to 10.5 lbs, and then slept for a full 6 hours straight last night!

I'm micro-analyzing a video of my best friend telling a story. (I wasn't going to because, well, "scientific objectivity" (ahem) but my supervisor watched it with me last week and agreed it was too great not to.)

The best part about yesterday was time with Amma people, especially singing. (choirqueer, I think I get why singing makes you so happy now.)

So far everything about my day is awesome. My back hurts the least it has in weeks, other than when I'm lying down. All 7 of my triops survived the weekend, they are growing so fast. And oh by the way I WENT RUNNING this morning. First time in my life. I'm starting couch to 5k. I feel SUPER ACCOMPLISHED.

Also I'm going to eat a peach and some sun butter. YUMMMMMMMMMMM.

for 9:30 on a monday morning my life RULES.

Getting my blood test results from my doctor. All my levels are very good or excellent, except for Vitamin D which is ever so slightly low, probably because I have a family skin cancer history and avoid the sun like the plague. My doctor referred to D as "the latest thing that everyone wants to test for," hah.

He was especially impressed with my HDL, which was 95, and apparently 65 is considered "excellent." Hah. So now I have actual scientific proof that everyone who keeps telling me I must be deficient in SOMETHING because I have eaten no animal products in 12 years is WRONG.

Also, finding out from the same test that in addition to the seasonal allergies I knew about (cats, trees, grass, dust), apparently I am slightly allergic to shrimp and cockroaches, which is just amusing.

We went to art class today (it's a homeschoolers art class) and seeing my son happily sitting with the group, conversing, following instructions without a problem etc is fantastic. He's just super awesome. Sometimes I want to visit all those 'expert' therapist types who treated him like shiitake and tell them they can really stick it.

It's me and biker boy's one year anniversary! I won't even see him today because he has a race tonight and I have track, but just knowing that my sweetie has been in my life for a year is enough today. <3<3<3

OMG, I won Vegan Chopped! And my baby is taking a good nap! And my dog's surgery to remove her mast cell tumor went well! It has been a pretty good, but emotional day (mostly worrying about my dog). Also my birthday is tomorrow so it's like an early birthday present! Yay!!!
