I will try to briefly summarize life:
Still waiting for fiance to heal and travel. Not sure he'll make it by my birthday. Most friends are a maybe for the zoo trip as well for that matter... and I may be taking an attendance point at work just to go myself. But heck, I'm turning 30 - I deserve ONE DAY just for me. Haven't had a vacation in 5+ years.... the days always go to health needs.
My chiropractor had a stroke. He is recovering, but may not be able to return to work. I want to wait, but my body is already suffering.
Fighting the weight battle. Eat about 1k-1500 calories a day, and still struggle. Try to get my food early in the day, with lighter low cal snacks later. Still can't get past this plateau. Due to health, cardio exercise is severely limited. Yes, I know I look fine - but just the chance I would feel better without the strain on my joints...
pain ... well, I'd be happy if every day was a 2/10. That's normal, heck good, for a chronic pain condition. Lately - it's started at 5/10 and gone up. Found a medicine finally that helps... but, I'm allergic to it - so every time I take even a half dose I have to take benedryl. Very frustrating.
commissions - trying to get inspired. Hit a point it shouldn't be difficult once I get going. Getting going with the pain & depression is another story. I would give much for a friend with enough time to just sit and talk to me while I worked. Main one isn't due till August, but I was hoping to get it done this month. Maybe I still can. Have someone else with another smaller project coming next week - might be the boost I really need right now.
events - ren faire is over. still a few more pics to post. Mom & dad's anniversary was nice. this weekend is mom's class reunion & fathers day. next weekend a friend comes over to hire me for costuming. July 4th is USA holiday. July 7 is my 30th bday. weekend after that is Natsucon. After that - well, that's enough to think about all at once... I'll look at the calendar again later.
weather - storms, tornados... too close for comfort but I and my loved ones are safe. worst damage in my circle is the vet had his office windows shattered. Feel horrible for those who have lost thier homes though. Prob should get some storm damage pictures to share, its just so hard to look at.
oh, and I dyed my hair red. feels good to be a ginger again. nice summery color
Anyways - that's the overall at the moment. Sorry it isn't cheerier. Hopefully summer will bring warmer & brighter days, figuratively as well as literally. I am a summer child after all.
Love & HuGz
