Is anyone still reading this?

It's been a strange, weird emotionally wrecking year.

I feel a lot better, though, now, and I feel like I should be writing more. I miss writing, and I haven't done it as much as I should have over these last few months. It seems strange that I haven't written in over a month. I never go that long without writing something.

Alaska was fantastic. My sister and I get along so well, and we always have a really good time together. She is one of the people I trust with pretty much everything, and she has a level enough head to help me really figure out the best way to approach life. Plus, we have a lot of fun together.

Graham and I are back on wedding planning. I contacted the dress maker I want to use. I hadn't planned on contacting her until November, because I'm running a half marathon in January and my body always changes when I train for an event. But, the dressmaker I fell in love with changed her website, and the dress I liked wasn't on the new site. So I e-mailed in a panic. She assured me that she'd still be able to make the dress I wanted, and she wished me luck on my training! I'll get back in touch later on.

Today is Crianza's 8th birthday. I miss her terribly. She was such a sweet, calm presence in the household, and she was such a good girl. I still can't believe what happened to her, and cancer just fucking sucks.

Celosa went to a dog show on Sunday, and as far as she was concerned, she was best in show. She met dozens of people, and she was photographed by dozens more. She was a good girl the entire time she was there, even when kids flocked around her. Her breeder thought she looked good, and the other puli people wished she had been around for the "meet the breed" event because she's so good with strangers. She met a lot of dogs, but the only one she really wanted to play with was her litter mate Eve. She got a new leash and collar, and she got bully sticks. All in all, I think she'd say it was an excellent dog show.

The last scrape from the wreck has finally healed over. I still have a crick in my neck, and from time to time I still think about the horror of rolling over. But it's not nearly as prevalent in my life as it was even a month ago. I went to therapy for six weeks afterwards, and I no longer feel the amazing stress and pressure that I had before. I probably still need to work on a few things, but the insurance would only pay for so much. We are still negotiating with the insurance company, though now that I think most of the bills are in, they can start giving numbers. We've sort of decided on the car we want to get when this is all settled.

We bought a refrigerator and it gets here on friday. I always feel so very adult when I buy appliances. Our fridge is at the point where we know not to put stuff on the top shelf of the freezer or else it won't freeze. And food goes bad more quickly in the fridge. The new one is a French door style stainless beauty with LED and all sorts of bells and whistles that probably didn't even exist when my fridge was made. Another addition to the slow redo of the kitchen.

Oh, and Graham has another gig in Austin next weekend. If you happen to be there, he'll be spinning at Charlies on LaVaca and Congress from 10-2 on Saturday the 6th. The set from his last gig is here.

still reading. Glad you are writing. So empathize with the crick in the neck (I had a kind of dramatic riding accident 51/2 weeks ago. Recovering and ambulatory, but empathize).

As for Crianze, ((hugs)) --she sounded like a very cool dog.

Indeed, I do read, and I like listening to real thoughts from someone. Google is like chugging rotgut compared to sipping a fine wine with a friend....

Hey there, still reading. Glad to hear that you a had nice vacation and that you got some therapy in on the insurance company's dime.

You'll write more when you feel up to it. Life moves the way it needs to move. The important thing is that you're healing.
