Yes, this is how I greeted a fair few of my friends when I was in high school. Invariably, the answer was, "not much". :D

Quick updatey thing:

-fic writing proceeds apace. No, forget apace, it's proceeding like a runaway freight train. My brain cannot process all of my ideas. Homestuck is probably one of the most fertile breeding grounds for fanfic I've ever come across. At least for me it is. I'm having an awesome time with it.

-We survived our stupid winter storm. I call it the stupid winter storm because it's ridiculous that such a small amount of wet, heavy snow could do SO much damage. We only lost power for about 22 hours, and for that I'm eternally grateful. Over a week later, there are still some places with no power. Sheesh.

-We are down one income, currently. Hubby is trying to find another second job. In the meantime, it's kinda nice to have him home more often. <3 I wish we didn't need the money so bad.

-Struggling with blood sugars. Send some healthy vibes my way, ok? We're headlong into "candy season" here.

-My spiritual life is starting to smooth out, I think. I wish I could make you all understand what sort of peace I'm experiencing, so much different than living through fundamentalist Christian hell. I want to get back to the curious place I was as a young teenager--I know that sounds "bad" but from ages 14 to about...well, about 30, I deprived myself of true spiritual exploration. I've been climbing up from that but it's difficult to free myself of the sort of bindings I put on my spirit in the name of being "born-again". It's all very difficult to explain.

For well over 20 years, I told myself I could not do certain things that in my heart, I wanted to do, and for well over 20 years, I tried to make myself fit a certain mold that wasn't really 'me'.

I'm not denying myself anymore, and it's incredibly liberating...and freakin' *tiring*!

But good. It's all good.

How is everyone else? <3

Quick rundown, things happening:

My son had a lot of fun at his first ever school dance! The teacher for his autism class went with him and his friend Matthew to keep an eye on them and she said they had a blast.

His birthday party is this weekend and he will be 12 on the 29th. Uuuugh, time goes too fast!

I auditioned for a musical last week! I think I did ok for it being my first audition for ANYTHING since college, but damn, my voice shakes so much when I'm nervous. I wish I could afford to take voice lessons. I feel good about the audition even though I did not get a callback. It won't be my last one, and I'm simply going to have to find more opportunities to sing in front of people. ...and practice acting. I have no idea how to go about that but I'm sure I can find out!

I am writing my blessed fingers off and having the best time ever with Homestuck. It's's the most amazing fount of creative inspiration for fanwork ever, at least for me. It shoved Hunger Games fanfic right off my brainspace, but I'm still picking away at those fics too. They're both fun but in different ways and for very different reasons.

Homestuck, right now, is the thing that is keeping me from begging more anti-anxiety meds off of my doctor. I look at fan art and fanfic and re-read canon and I cackle like Terezi, I swear.

It's not that I'm not stressed, but man, Homestuck does take the edge off. So...thanks, Hussie. You're awesome.

I don't even want to write about the bad shit--because there is some of that--because it's just...not that bad, right now.

My voyage of self-discovery is going well, I think. And also my new philosophy of "I will not tell myself I can't do things" seems to be working out. At 42, it's about time.

Hey, people. It's been a busy month, what?

We're slowly but surely getting things unpacked. We still can't believe we're in our house. :)

Awesome things about houses:

- You do not hear the neighbor's TV's turned up so far that you can't actually hear what they're saying. It's all *boom boom, b-b-boom*.

-Not hearing other people coming in and out and having arguments in the hallways.

-Having closet space.

-Having a laundry area.


Only thing not so gret: having to pay for repairs. But that's ok, because the above points cancel it out SO MUCH.

Our mother in law bought us a bedroom set which is so very nice of her, and it's so pretty!

We got some varied furniture pieces from our realtor (yes, she is awesome, plus she owns a TINY DOG and I love them so). Including a very pretty sofa and loveseat. I can't wait till it's all at our house and arranged.

We've still got too many boxes to unpack, but man. I sleep better here than anywhere, and it is awesome.


What's new with everyone? :)

(just kidding, I'm at work)

We're moved into our new house and we haven't had internet since, so hopefully that will be taken care of tonight.

We're still cleaning out and clearing out our old apartment.

BUT WE HAVE A HOME! It's awesome and nice quiet neighborhood, and awesome neighbors. :D!

(Thanks to everyone for putting up with me. LOL )

My husband is going to be teaching English for the rest of the year at our local high school!


He's very happy and excited. They're going to be studying Tale of Two Cities and the other members of the English department already like his lesson plans. He starts tomorrow. It's sort of like a paid internship, albeit a short one. He's going to be learning so much!
