Surgery in about 9 hours. I feel. . .mostly empty? Ready, but queasy, like the night before a flight. All the prep has me edgy--extra stuff in my room, a partner in my bed. . .too much going on. It was way too hot today, which didn't help. Too much stimulation, too hot too loud too touchy. I'm sure it'll all go fine, I just feel restless and edgy. But I'm ready. I'll be so much more comfortable once I'm all healed up.

I was evicted, or nearly. The drama went down, for sure. I was running scared, and trying to move, and shoving things in boxes, and trying to find a place to leave Cleo. I was dealing with Josh, and I had just been laid off, and I pretty much felt like I'd never be safe again.

Fast forward to today. I have a good job that's not going anywhere. I'm about to move again, this weekend, to a gorgeous apartment of my own, with my fiancee, in a beautiful neighborhood in this wonderful city. Although I haven't gotten fully together financially yet, I'm cleaning things up quickly. My transition has been moving forward by leaps and bounds. I've made new friends and caught up with old ones. I'm learning to live on my own, without my grandmom to hold things together in the family or my dad to give advice. I feel like I have aged ten years in this one.

And on a less philosophical note, I would be really happy if we could stay in the same apartment for, like, five years now. Holy crap, am I tired of moving.

Resolution update!

Stop:
Deflecting responsibility--Ongoing, seem to be doing okay.
Spending more than $50/wk on food--Haven't been tracking as aggressively as I ought to, but again, seem to be doing okay.
Avoiding creative projects--big fail. Must do better!

Go:
Dragon food plan--Excellent! Feeling better, seem to be getting enough cals!
Use Mint effectively and pay bills on time--Working on this. Need to file more, get more done.
Go back into analysis--haven't really started looking at this yet
Blog daily--Sometimes it's worth it, sometimes it's crap. But it's here every damn day, so.
Name change--on my calendar to start in February
Start a new physical activity--just got on board with the exercises here
