My niece was born today! This baby has been such a long time coming; our family has had such a roller coaster with all the fertility stuff my sister has gone through. My sister is happy and healthy and apparently quite numb from the chest down, which is probably good, and baby is healthy and doing well. I can't wait for a picture! And my mom can facetime me from the hospital so I can meet her today, too.


Congratulations!!! Being an Aunt/Uncle is the best thing in the world. I got my first niece 6 weeks ago, my sister went through a roller coaster as well and I think it makes you appreciate them/spoil them just a little bit more :-)

joyfulgirl came to visit me! We spent about a million hours crafting and watching Buffy and eating popcorn. Then we got up in the morning and had brunch at the vegan Chinese buffet. YAY! Everyone should come visit me, it's super fun!

It's only 8am but the best part of my day so far is waking up. I had two bad dreams, one about being trapped in a house with a hungry mountain lion, and one about biker boy cheating on me. It's nice to be awake and in control of my mind...

Visiting you sounds awesome! Especially considering how many days i have spent doing nothing other than watching Buffy, eating/baking tasty vegan food, and crafting.

Yesterday i took an awesome shower/bubbly bath. I don't who constructed the tub at my apartment, because it is the least comfortable thing in the world. Definitely not for chilling in the tub. Every time i come home i take advantage of the comfy tub at my parent's house. Also, my kaffir lime plant that was recently infected with bugs is doing really good!

I've been sick for five days and was really pissed off at not being able to go out to celebrate with friends tonight as we had planned. Unbeknownst to me my flatmate arranged for the friends to come round instead. They brought champagne and hummus! And best of all, they understood I was still sick and not feeling up for a raucous night, so they stayed an hour or so and then went on their way. I have the best friends ever.

I managed to be part of a good thing. One of my friends is helping out a woman who had to leave her home in the South to be with her son who was hit by a drunk driver, and had to leave her cats behind. Because everything is more severe than she initially thought, the cats could no longer stay with the person who was caring for them. So my friend was trying to find transport, and I posted it on my FB and another friend happened to be in the area and could take the cats back up to NJ. So I got the two together and now the cats are coming up to NJ and this poor woman who has been in the ICU with her comatose son for weeks, has one less thing that she needs to worry about. She has supposedly been worried sick that the person who was caring for them would just dump them at the shelter, and since they're older, they wouldn't stand a good chance of being rehomed.

But now it looks like at least this small part of her journey is going to go well, and we can only pray that her son recovers and that things can go back to normal for her soon.

Its a great reminder that reposting things on FB can sometimes make a real difference for a person or animal in need.

After a year in this house, my living room is painted!

I love it. I get why people get attached to the homes they work so hard on.

Joegirl, what wonderful friends you have!
`
Tofulish, what an awful situation for the mom and son. I'm sure she is relieved to know that the cats are being well taken care of. Good work!

Kfad, I've lived in my house for about 6 years and haven't painted anything. I keep thinking we are going to move at any moment and it's not worth the bother. You are way ahead of me.

My lady and I walked a couple miles through the snow to fill our growler with cider from the local taphouse, and then walked home while fireworks were bursting overhead. It was kinda lovely. I'm feeling all the feelings.

I got engaged yesterday. At sunset. At the Grand Canyon.
It doesn't really feel real yet, but it was super cute and romantic.

edit: If we are friends on FB, please don't say anything on there. I still have some family members/friends to tell first.

Haha. I'm sort of overwhelmed by the engagement at this point!

Thanks, guys! I'm super stoked.

We went to a pub for dinner and I wasn't feeling great and kind of looked like crepe (no make-up, bad hair, breaking-out skin, falling apart boots, whatevs) and when I walked in there was this group at the table we sat next to that were all staring at me and talking quietly as they stared and I just assumed they were talking about my greasy forehead or something, but my husband overheard their entire conversation and they were talking about how much they liked my coat and my scarf and how I had a really cool look. It was confounding! I am no fashionista. But I do like my coat and scarf so thanks, strangers!
