Feeling great

Snow day or not, I feel better than I have for a long while.

There must be some nasty virus around these parts - one symptom is throbbing gums. I thought it was a dental issue having recently had my teeth cleaned. The pressure of my CPAP mask made it worse. I was in tears. Tylenol or Voltaren wasn't touching the pain. It was miserable. I guess it could be sinus-related. Anyway, it's going away now. But Sweetie mentioned today his gums were throbbing.  Hmmm. . . I hope he doesn't feel as miserable as I did at it's worst.

I love blogland, but I am extremely behind in my reading. I'm behind in reading my books as well. Still, I keep adding blogs to my list. I should go through and clean some out, but I hate to lose any. NY day I went through and poked at a few that hadn't posted for a while and I'm glad they're back now, even if not regularly. It's so worth the wait. Anyhow, I need to find that awesome blog I had on my favorites that had the monthly weight loss book. There are so many on my list now that I'm having a hard time sorting through. If you can point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it. Meanwhile, I'll search through my dashboard and see if I can find her that way.  It's Juli's Journey. I found her! Yay me!

I've made a few more local friends lately and am really happy to have found the "cool kids" around here. It takes time for friendships to blossom and finally it's happening. Certainly not neurotypical, my sense of humor and lack of grooming can cause assumptions to be made that aren't quite valid. I don't spend a lot of time trying to fit it, but I do very much want to make connections to people. So, even if I've been spending less time blogging, I have been building my support network and making new friendships IRL.

I think I'm taking a  Bob Ross painting class in March. Who wouldn't want to learn to make "happy little clouds"?  It's on a Friday. I hope my kid has school that day. The more I think about it the more I want to do it.

Kiddo is dining out with friends tonight and I've been having a PJ day. Maybe I can get in some exercise and then change into new jammies. Who knows what tomorrow will bring, but hopefully it will be nice enough for the local "Global Summit" which I'm really looking forward to attending and helping with our Kids For Peace group. I'm such a hippie.


  1. Happy that you're feeling great. Yeah IRL friends. And what do you mean about your sense of humour. I love your sense of humour. You totally crack me up. Something is going around here sinus-wise too and I've had the same symptoms as you, as well as hubby and my daughter and other peeps at work. A little comment on your last post - "There is none so blind as he who will not see."

  2. Thanks Darla - for everything. You made my day today.

    I found the blog I was looking for earlier with the monthly book posting but she hasn't done Feb yet, I don't think. http://julis-journey.blogspot.com/2011/01/january-2011-book-pick.html

  3. Ok, wtf is up with the fraud mini post. I need details. Stat. And? I fucking love pj days. Finally? Your sense of humor makes me almost feel normal. Almost. All I need is a tail.

  4. Lanie! Glad you're feeling better. Hope Mr. Lanie feels better soon. I've been gone so long... but already feeling better and motivated after stopping by yesterday and today. Gotta get back in the saddle and get to that healthy place.

  5. Sorry to hear about the gums for you guys - that's nasty pain, especially if it hurts with the cpap mask. Cheers, Rick

  6. So cool you are making more of the needed friendship connections. You sound like a fun person to be around! I noticed that your followers increase every time I visit your blog! Glad you're feeling better and I hope you have a fabulous evening and day tomorrow.

    Thanks for your comments on my post! I appreciate those words you left for me. :)
    I wish I could make friends like you do... I reach out to others and show interest & do things... but I'll be danged if only like 1% gets returned... nothing seems to be mutual for me in the living world - I always seem to value friendships more than they are valued in return - except with the hubs. Wah... I'm wining, sorry.

    God Bless

  7. Right on! We're supposed to live in the real world, and just branch out in the virtual one (not the other way around), so good for you.

    I'm going through the same process right now, so I feel'a sista. Yes, I know I'm too white and square to pull that off. Screw it.

    My upcoming class is a knitting class, so you can paint me a happy little tree, and I'll knit you a tea cozy (or whatever sort of thing one knits).

    Feel better!

  8. Feeling great is a great thing to hear. Throbbing gums and all, ouch; be well and think happy little clouds!

  9. Let me know about the painting class. I've been thinking about starting again.
    I like your sense of humor! I don't always get it (I'm just not quick enough) but I like 30mins later when I do!
