I had a good day, still stiff and in pain (emailing dr. now about bladder infection not being better) But able to work. I was pleased I could walk so well today and get around the house.
DU hit the end of our 10 day long fundraiser, and $15K from around 175 donors. I'm at a constant level of happiness that this is happening and I'm helping to do it. The plans are good.
Went out a few blocks away to the eye dr. for a followup. My eye is back to normal. They said they want me to come back in 2 weeks and get my eyes dilated and stuff again to make sure things are cool in there. Not sure that is necessary. The eye doc said I should keep the steroid drops around in case of extreme allergy attack. I described what happened when I pet a chicken, which made him laugh. Obvious cure: Don't pet a chicken ever again, but in case I lose control there will be backup steroid eye drops.
Cleaned a little in the morning then realized I could, if I were able to, easily spend at least 4 hours cleaning, doing laundry, and grocery shopping/cooking. More like 5 really just to catch up with having spent a week almost entirely in bed. I can't physically do 5 hours of housework, for one. For two, I had a full day of work to be doing. zond7 also had a lot of work and is running an event tonight so though he did the trash and moved laundry along we are like 4 or 5 days behind in laundry and have both kids this weekend. I still had to do many things with trash, laundry all over the floor everywhere, the litter box, and dishes and there is more to do just so that I can eat something now and in the morning. I wish I had declared housekeeping bankruptcy earlier than today.
Housekeeping bankruptcy means I have hired someone off taskrabbit to clean tomorrow and I ordered groceries from safeway delivery and bought fruit and tortilla stuff at the tiny corner store on the way back from the doctor.
Moomin's new clothes arrived and are laid out on his bed for approval. 3 pairs of jeans, a green and black fleecy hoodie, a warm coat (off ebay) and some fleece pajama bottoms with penguins on them.
I got A. a thermal silk long underwear top and some purple leopard spotted jeans. I'd like to take her clothes shopping for real this weekend if I can get up the energy. She could use some warm fleecy things, and needs to transition everything to size 12. Her long sleeve shirts are all thin cotton and at least a year old, still kind of fitting but tight. I would like her to have a replacement holiday outfit as she has grown out of her velvet dresses. Even a nice sweater or whatever. OK. I sound like my mom. hahahahaa. Well... every year I try to make sure she has a "nice holiday" outfit available and it has always come in to be useful, unpredictably.
I also got myself silk long underwear to replace the set I had that got completely shredded. (The red plaid ones from WisCon alas) They pack down small and I can wear them under a wool layer.
Did more stuff with crash bugs, felt a bit flaily, but getting the hang of some of it. I had a hard time really concentrating.
I enjoyed this bug
, as you can see in its comments. Rather than declare it wontfix, i left it for my coworker in australia to see on his shift. I guess he'd see the bug if even if I resolved it, but leaving it open allows for more silly answers.
Late delivery truck!!! My enbrel is here. Good, they were supposed to ship it last week. Last weekend I didn't have an enbrel injection. Which was for the best since I had an infection. I want to do the injection this weekend. Unsure. Will ask my doctor. Actually.. he is not my primary care doc anymore so I may need to just make an appt. with my new primary. Also not sure.
A. is here but went off to 5mof with zond7 which is somewhat a relief as it means I can go to bed now instead of at like, 10. I need the rest! School night yeah whatever omg i am tired. zond7 is horribly ill from eating my leftover garlic naan which I specially got so that it would be for me and he would not eat it. That backfired....
I am not doing any sort of Thanksgiving thing and am hoping to just like go to techsploitation's movie night that weekend and otherwise, rest and recuperate.
I have 2 solid weeks of workweeks one in SF and one in MV and have no idea how I will be able to physically do that. Probably I won't be able to. Then what. Oh, ugh. Over do things. Get not all the way "better" to my imaginary baseline. Do it again.
Then do it again over xmas.
Am almost certainly going to 30c3 over xmas break. This is almost certainly foolish. But I've never been, zond7 will be with me, and it will be fun. Sophie T. and I are plotting to do some sort of feminist unconference. I do not know any German. It will be cold. It will almost certainly have some sort of horrible inaccessibility and people will act like ass. Well, anyway, I'm going. Probably via London/Essex.
I want to re-center my life a bit more around home and Double Union, and have travel be for an actual vacation next year, in warm places.
