(no subject)

Looking for bed space at Readercon, as well as possibly a ride home. I have a CPAP, so I'd need to be near an electrical socket of some ilk. I can pay a bit toward a room, but have no credit or credit card (functioning) to pay for a room by myself, and they're chomping up the southbound 93 bridges outside our bedroom window, so commuting might vaguely be do-able, it would be rather... impractical. It would be even more awesome to pay al someone the money in August, but I realize that people might want to get cash from me with which to buy books. If this post is less than clear, know that I'm (temporarily) on some violently strong pain medicine for my back, and chances are that I could elucidate when less sheep-like. Any ideas are welcome also!

Gah!

Does anyone have a 32inch TV we could use? I asked via Posterous, but I can't even get at the original post from here for some reason... I got Jeremy a DVD set for his b'day, but watching things on a computer seems to be a solitary occupation in this household.

Distracted yearnings

Finding myself wanting to travel, but know the cost of a rental car is ludicrous. A certain desire for being in control is beginning to really bug me. I need to get out of the house, but have schoolwork that needs getting done. Getting regimented into classes I don't want, or need, is upsetting me a great deal. I'm wondering how I could test out of general psych, which I think I'd be taking for the third, or at least the second, time. I have more work to do now, but thanks for letting me vent, y'all.

Gah!

What, me update?? ;-/

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?

Let's see...

If I can do this right! Came home from surgery on December 31st. Still in recovery mode, but planning to go to Arisia come hell or high water! ;-) I'll need help from one of y'all with clue medical. Braille-ing a part of my anatomy I can't see is a less than stellar idea. My legs don't work that way! :-)

Anyway, will I see at least some of you there?

Experiment Two.

Here is my second Posterous post. Hopefully some of you can see it this time!

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*

Been a bit...

Recovering, once again, from back injections. More on left than right this time. Well we'll see if it works. Craving a gel seat to use at cons and for holiday visits out. More some other time, as I'm falling asleep!

Hullo all...

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?

Last Update 22 Weeks Ago

Just thought I'd let you all know that things are calm, my father is alive&well and living in Portland, ME, about a mile from my sister's apartment. Other than that, usual medical ills getting worse/better. Going to get my last 5 lower teeth extracted a 'couple days after the end of Arisia this month, hopefully rapidly followed by a denture. Not sure I'm going to be able to endure the extractions on just laughing gas, but I'm going to try. They gave me valium to take the night before and the day of, but I don't expect that that will work all that well... which is self-defeating, isn't it? I'm going to avoid that thought as much as possible from now on. New Year's Eve day I got a fresh set of facet injections in my lower back, which are things that help me be in less pain. Listening to The Capital Steps while out of it on extra-strength percocet was.... surreal, to say the least! ;-)

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.)

Amongst other things...

It looks like I'll be attempting the trip to Worldcon this year! *squee*! So if you see me in the big red scooter (with the Hello Kitty stickers on it! ;-) say hello to me, give me a hug, etc. Just make sure I can see you! *wry chuckle*

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*
