Met with shrinky-poo this morning. My answers to all of her routine questions lead her to the proclamation that I am as normal as I’ll probably ever be. I’ll see her again at the end of January.
Still busy as a one-armed paper hanger. Josh is still finding ways to simultaneously piss me off and then amaze me with his kindness. He’s a boy, what can I say.
The weekend visit with the kid was the best we’ve had in absolute ages. She and I actually had some conversations that were good, we did some dumb things at home, and she tried her hand at a craft that still kind of eludes me and did a phenomenal job.
I have been assured that my raise will be on the check at the end of this month AND they got it retroactive back to October 1 – which is awesome considering christmas is next month.
I haven’t had a free 5 minutes to read blogs lately and that just kills me. I miss reading about what’s going on with y’all almost as much as I miss writing to you about what’s going on in my life. But there is still a ton of stuff going on and with the holiday next week it may well get worse. This time of year is hard for my family – this is when Dad got ill – and Mom and I both are having to deal with our own medical issues that take place in the same hospital he was in. But we’re both tough cookies and I have no doubt that we’ll get through.
I leave you with a visual from this weekend that may cause you to run for the eye bleach. I present J-Funk Mandala, the hippest hipster to ever hip.
