Shame on me, I know. I haven't been around lately at all. Not even to read other blogs. On one hand, nothing has really been going on, but I've managed to be super busy. My last post was in.. JULY!? Oh wow. Just, wow.
Went to my first NFL game, the Rams VS. the Chiefs in Kansas City. I'm not a fan of either, but it was fun. It was hell getting around, though. I had to traverse the massive parking lot and then we got turned around and went around the building instead of through the doors that led to the wheelchairs. Ugh. But it was fun in the end, I just popped some Tylenol and rested afterward.
Mid-September Loki moved into his new apartment. Its a bit smaller than his old place, but the use of space is a million times better, it also feels more homey and comfortable. There isn't random stuff everywhere, its nicely organized.
Loki also bought tickets to the Lions VS. the Vikings game in Minnesota and we took Red and Paws with us since Paws is a Lions fan and Red is a Vikings fan as well as Loki. Me? I'm a Packers girl. Oh yeah, the tickets to the Lions game? They came bundled with the Packers-Vikings game in Minnesota. We're going to that. It'll be three days before my birthday and while I can't say its what I would have planned for my annual celebration of my entrance to this world, its going to be a blast all the same.
My birthday is October 26th, and I'll be 24. Its hard to believe, really. I look at myself and I don't think I'm "all grown up". I also don't think my peers are, either... Funny how that works... 5 years ago I would have considered people in their 20s the epitome of adulthood... now that thought makes me laugh and laugh and laugh... and usually I can stop laughing before people start talking about padded rooms and restrictive clothing... but really it is vastly bizarre to me. People have babies at my age. BABIES! Can you imagine? I can't. I used to think I'd be married and breeding by now (to put it crudely) but here I am, HAPPILY unmarried and enjoying my relationship with Loki. Now, don't get me wrong, he's a perfectly marriageable man... he's handsome, funny, caring, intelligent, and can usually keep up with me in a conversation... but I struggle to even picture anything beyond what we have right now. I do HOPE that someday we'll be there together... but right now I'm just not worried about it. And that is WEIRD to me. I obsessed for AGES about where I'd wind up, with who, yadda yadda... and now I'm just... not. I don't think its my age catching up to me so much as my perspective. They do say hindsight is 20/20 as much as I HATE that saying... but damn if it isn't true!
I've taken up knitting (again), in a more business venue type of way... I'm not sure how I'm doing, to be completely honest. Its been a long time since I've knit, and I'm getting back into it and making better things now... but after knitting for a while my hands ache and there are imprints in my fingers where the needles are resting. I'm not sure how viable a source of income this will be... but one way to find out! I'll post pictures of my needlework as they're produced. I made a knit cap for Loki in the colors of his team, purple and gold.
On the medical front, nothing. No word about my hearing, STILL. I still have a raging ear infection. Though, I am walking again, without my boot, but I don't have the strength back, not by a long shot. I can tell that the joint is loose after months of disuse, and my mobility is limited. Though, I can't say NOT being bendy for once is necessarily a good thing... haha! I've started swimming again and lost 6 lbs off what I'd gained while being off my feet. I really love to swim, its so freeing. I can do everything in the water that I can't do on land. My chest feels tight with joy and relief when I get into that water and start to move. I feel alive when I'm floating...
Anyway! I'm back, and I'm sorry for deserting for so long. I'll be catching up on the blogs I've missed in the past... three months.......... so if you get a comment from me on an older post, that'd be why! :) I can't resist jamming my 2 cents in wherever they might be taken.
