Frantic, starting college again. Need to submit an autobiography for both classes by Thurs. Don't know which closets to come out of and which ones to stay in! Just having one of those nights. J's sleeping, why can't I?
Anyway, will I see at least some of you there?
Have an infected ingrown hair in an uncomfortable spot, but other than that I seem to be healthy this holiday season, unlike Thanksgiving. I plan on staying this way throughout New Year's Eve. (even though it'll be a bummer since Jeremy is working that night for the second year in a row . :-( I'm going to try to get a volunteer to drive me to a party instead. I'm stopping this posting here, since my typoing is pissing me off! *wry grin*
Haven't written in a while, so I thought I'd see what this App. does. Having progress, of painful, toward getting the fillings and crowns done for my teeth. After those are all in place, the denture impression can get done. I wanted that first, but apparently, according to my cute little dentist, the shape changes of the top teeth can have an effect on how the bottom teeth are shaped, or something. She's pretty nice, but the accent of her assistant is sometimes hard for even me to understand.
Other than that, the usual excruciating back pain is, well, painful. I need to reschedule tomorrow's chiropractor appointment, seeing an ear, nose, and throat doc at... 9am?!!?? Ah well, I wasn't the one who scheduled it when I missed the previous appointment due to hospitalization. I had that really horrid gut bug combined with cellulitis. That was a bad 3 days or so last month just before Lunacon. I made it to the con, though!
Now that I don't have any cons until July, and my sister and father's birthdays are over, I need to schedule up my physical therapy for my back. What fun! (ugh)
Mood is so-so. I keep dreaming that someone is trying to kill me. Occasionally I am lucky, and they just want to humilliate me utterly. But when I'm awake, things are mostly okay, other than needing to find a few hundred dollars a month:-/. Anyone have a small job for me?

Thanks to a beloved, I attended Worldcon this year, my first! Montreal is a fabulous city, although their curb cuts are more of curb suggestions... Came back, had a 'couple weeks to clear out my dad's old house so that it could be put up for sale. He had a real cleaning person come in for most of it, but I got to claim mostly what I wanted to, the books and some personal knick-knacks from various of the 35 years it was our family home. As a male, my dad is quite popular amongst the older women at his retirement community, and he seems to enjoy it. He's playing bridge regularly, and there's even a Wii bowling league! :-)
The holidays were calm this year. Nobody has much money, so we didn't get/give much, even within families. I enjoyed muchly taking pictures and playing with Jeremy's 18-month-old nephew, Julian. :-) I'm such a sucker for little kids! :-) I still need more of a social life, and to get out and play with other folks' kids is a blast, but it was chaotic at best for a while there. I'm slowly catching up with my various doctors, and hope that 2010 will be a much less stressful year.
Oh! And I have an iPhone on my sister's family plan, so that if an emergency should happen, we can keep in touch easily. :-) I've been having too much fun for words with it. Not making telephone calls, mind you, but downloading ring tones, and games, and booooooooks. (although, on the whole, I think I'd be better off with a regular Kindle.)
In other worlds... my dad got sick, but he's doing much better now, and his new apartment in an independent living section of a retirement community agrees quite well with him. He's now in Portland, Maine, and my sister lives about a mile away from him. Good in case of emergencies!!! (I dealt with one already, almost broke me, not doing it again!)
My pain levels continue pretty much unabated. However, I haven't completely let it stop me yet, and the next few weeks will involve cleaning out my father's old house in Dartmouth, MA. I'm sleeping a lot, and a lot of strange hours at that. For example, I woke up at 6 this morning, and my body is telling me to go sleep already. I just wanted to get this quick note out. I apologize for it taking so long to write, hopefully I'll be awake for some other post. *wry sigh*
