Part of my drive to the office can be really beautiful and did not disappoint me today.

It is wretchedly cold out and hurt to breathe and the car was taking forever to warm up, but the sky was perfectly clear and blue except for right at the treelike where the clouds were all piled on top of eachother and stretched out forever an looked like a huge, fluffy, white mountain range. It was really lovely and made me really incredibly happy for a moment.

Molly is such a warm little snuggle bundle of love. Normally she is playing or busy in the aarly afternoon, then naps late afternoon, but she is being so sweet and cuddly right now.

They always know when we need them.

Had a phone interview for a job today & got offered it right on the spot. Then not an hour later I got a call for setting up an interview with another job, and 10 min after that a call from a third company who was interested in hiring me. It's definitely feast or famine.

They dialed back on the max doses of blood pressure meds and turned the ventilator down to 50%! Dialysis seems helping a lot.

Our road isn't plowed, but hopefully they will soon.

That's great lavawitch! Here's to a steady recovery!

Going to the cochlear centre with my SIL to see my 17mth old niece's implants being turned up another notch. It really is wonderful to see her respond to sound, today she seemed to respond to external sounds, which is just brilliant!

Hi Fezza :)


I was a bit trepidatious about a gig we'd booked in Leicester as I'd heard not-too-good things about the venue, but it turned out to be great and lots of fun. Lots of people came up to chat and say how much they enjoyed our set, which was great. I also saw a great (new to me) band there that I'll look up.

I went to my first Zumba class last night, and it was so much fun! Then went out for beer and french fries. Exercise, I'm doing it right.

Moon, totally! One of the highlights about being really active is how much more food and beer you are able to consume! (And I don't actually mean in a "...without getting fat" kind of way; I mean like the physical quantity of food I am able to fit into my belly.)

When I first moved to Chicago, I was roommates with a friend of mine who at the time worked for Chicago Soydairy (Now Chicago Vegan Foods I think?) who make Temptations ice cream. We always had several gallons of ice cream in the freezer, either because it was a limited production and we got the leftovers, or the ends of batches, or a batch with wrong proportions, or just 'cause my roommate liked a certain flavor and wanted to bring it home...AND it was the first time that I bike commuted every day. I totally spent my entire first summer here riding my bike 8 miles roundtrip to/from work (which now seems like not that much, but at the time, and on the crappy heavy bike I was riding then, seemed like SO MUCH to me) and then getting home every day and making myself a peanut butter cookie dough milkshake. Ah, those were the days.

1) Pandacare package! It's awesome and so is pandacookie.

2) Got the box I mailed to myself from my mom's house. It's basically full of pictures of family ancestors and letters. I also now have my grandpa's AND great grandpa's sliderules and engineers' kits (looks like a bunch of compasses and things like that, in old rotting leather cases). I am so happy it got here safely, everything in the box was irreplaceable.

I bought some clothes today in a real store, based on what fit and looked good, rather than whatever mostly fit at Goodwill, or whatever I could pick off the clearance rack in vaguely my size. I also bought two bras that aren't nursing tank-tops, which is what I've been wearing for the last 3 1/2 years. I don't remember the last time I bought new clothes like this, but I know it's been at least 5 years. It's just a pair of (skinny!) jeans, a t-shirt, a plaid shirt, a tank top, and a jacket, but I love them all, and they all actually fit my body. And the salesperson was very helpful and affirming, which made me feel better about myself.

hey! that's really great! i've had a few good shopping experiences like that too recently. it makes a world of difference when you go into a store and something actually fits AND looks good rather than trying on a million items that wont pull up over your hips or shirts that wont button or whatever.

It's great, isn't it? I'm a tall, plus-sized lady and it can be SO HARD to find clothes that fit me in every direction. I have a constant problem with shirts that aren't long enough or sleeves that don't reach my wrists, so I'm really happy to have stuff that actually flatters me, rather than just covers me.

Thank. It's Penn State which is great at what I want to do, but still waiting for 7 more before making a decision. Going to grad school! Not going to get rejected everywhere!
