So I was telling S about my dry sinuses, and after sympathizing, he asked if I'd tried various things. Finally, he said, "Have you tried lotion?" I don't know why this never occurred to me, but after just one application the inside of my nose is less tender and dry. Yay!
Maybe they will heal enough soon that I can go back to using my Flonase.
And, yes, I did spend the night with S. It was so good to see him and be with him. We talked about his being away and things that I can do to help me stay feeling connected to him (because I start to miss him very quickly). I think that this trip away will be less difficult than when he was away during the summer. I feel more sure of myself with him and comfortable with our relationship. Still, it will be over 3 weeks. ACK!
SS came over this a.m. to spend the middle of the day with S and brought me a gift (as we had decided to exchange gifts)! It was in a shiny box and had an awesome card. She had made me a goddess doll of Freyja and sewn the rune symbol from my tattoo onto the doll. It is absolutely beautiful. I also got a lovely calendar/journal. I think I'm going to use this as a register of important dates for me, since I suck at birthdays, etc.
I haven't yet made my gift for her. I'm going to try to do that this afternoon. I want to either give her one of my paintings or do a new one for her. I'm also going to give her some of my mom's pickles. Hopefully, she will enjoy them.
I'm meeting up with them later this afternoon. I have no idea what the adventure for the evening is but it should be fun!
