By the time most of you read this, it will be WritinginAK's birthday. I just want to acknowledge what a wonderful friend she is. I've known her for over 10 years now. She was the first person I ever came out to. She has the courage to ask the hard questions. She is friendly and cute and has the brightest laugh of anyone I've ever known. We've been mistaken for sisters (she may not remember this...we both have similar hair color and maybe similar cheekbones, but otherwise don't really look alike). I'm happy to say that after her recent accident she is well on the mend and back to work.
Blessings to you in this next year, my friend. (The fun magazines will be in the mail in the new year!)
So the housing plan is a go. I was able to reconfigure my budget tonight before a committee meeting I had to go to. Things look brighter. I've even figured out what to do with the "extra" furniture, since it looks like we will be opening another LVC house here in the Bay Area this year. Nice charity donation. Still now I get to mourn my home (I really love my apartment).
The car is still in the shop. The adjustor is trying to find cheaper parts to bring down the estimate on the car, but it looks like they won't total it. I told my service guy they could probably pick up a pretty reasonable steering wheel and airbag for a Honda Civic in a chop shop somewhere in Oakland.
The things that bring me up during the day lately are few and far between...here are a few from today:
*Thinking about an ActionSpins action figure...changeable wardrobe and magic flying dog and all.
*Walker's shortbread biscuits...a patient brought them in for a gift to the staff.
*Green Day's American Idiot & System of a Down's Mesmerize (which I'm liking more than Hypnotise) played really loud.
*The kind words and support of B & HippyChick (who survived a deposition today...take a bow chica!).
I started commenting on blogs at work again today. But I really felt strongly pulled to feel like there were people around me that I could interact with...because internally feels so empty. So I guess that makes all of you the 5th thing that gave me a boost today.
Friday will be a happier post...unless you were involved in the making of the film that Mark Reed has reviewed as his least favorite. Remember to make time in your day to stop by and let him know how you feel about his pick!
