It's A Great Week For America!  
Well, for me anyways, as I actually had a pretty good week. ceitfianna came for a visit and man, I love my new Ipad. We were able to be total geeks and just sit in the living room together on our devices and do our own thing, while occasionally informing the other of random goings-on in our various fandoms. Yes, thank you, we are nerds.

Then I got a call from my liver management nurse that my liver levels are going back down, after they started slowly climbing upwards last month. They are trying to wean me off my medicine, as long term use severely weakens the immune system, but after just stepping down the dosage one step, my levels starting going up, causing obvious upset about the prospect of being able to get me off the medicine at any point. But hopefully the fact that the levels have started to go back down means my body just needed time to adjust. Now the plan is to wait a few months and if it all looks good, we’ll taper down another step.

Then one of my fics got recced! I wasn’t going to say anything, because I didn’t want to be all braggey, but then I thought, “Hey, if my LJ isn’t the place to brag about good things happening to me, I don’t where is.” So, yeah, The Best Valentine’s Day Ever got recced at rec_hymenated, which for Dean/Cas fans, is the place to be! It’s like going to The Show, the Major Leagues, man. And the rec was really sweet and basically hit on all the things I loved while writing that fic.

Then my friend D came to town for his sister’s wedding and stopped by for a quick visit. He told me he was going to be in town, but he didn’t think there’d be time with all the wedding stuff for him to drop by. But they got up early enough and realized they had like two hours before they had to start getting ready - (he was walking her down the aisle!) - so he and his husband came on over. That was such a pleasant surprise and he got to meet ceitfianna, which was sweet because I like when people in my life all get to meet each other.

I also went to Target and got some new pajamas, which I was in sore need of, and a new white bra so I can finally wear my Goonies tshirt! And then I went back today and found they had a push-up bra, in the size I am wearing now, that’s in the exact same style as my all-time favorite bra, which I had to throw away recently - (I’d worn it so much that it had no structure left). Also, in the last two days, I managed to get like eight things on my to-do-list checked off!

To wrap up my post, I caught Alona Tal on Ferguson the other night and he was so smitten with her, it was adorable. But I had this weird moment of like, “Hey, I met her once! And now she’s on Craig Ferguson, who I basically want to marry, and huh...my brain can’t seem to wrap around this strange collision.” I am a big giant dork, so I got a little thrill out of it.

Sadly, my sister is having a bad day today with some insurance mix-ups, the garage door bumper falling off, her new vacuum breaking and her video game freezing up on her. I wonder if it’s like an opposite force thing working in our household? Hopefully her day will be better tomorrow!

Yes, but not if it means then you'll have a bad day. You both need good days!

Keeping my fingers crossed for continued better liver levels and hopes that you'll be able to get off the meds soon.

Mostly this weekend I have been working, but I did take a break yesterday to go to the gym and have the weekly watch of SPN with a friend. We were not so impressed with this week's episode. But we also watched an episode of Elementary and of Foyle's War, and those were good. This morning I spent 4 hours online with Turbo Tax and completed my federal and state returns and I think my returns might pay for my niece's and my tickets to the UK this summer. Yay. And I bought the second season of Game of Thrones on Blu-ray because it was on sale at Amazon. I've also been doing some really long-overdue housecleaning and any minute now I am going to get up from my computer and color my hair.

So yeah, that's my weekend.

I have downloaded Cult, but I haven't watched it yet. Have you seen it?

Well, so far this week we both seem to be having half'n'half days, where we have partly terrible days and partly great days - it's all very strange! Still, I'll take days like this over all bad days, for damn sure.

We were not so impressed with this week's episode.

I'd heard nothing but negative reviews of it and I almost just skipped it. We finally got aroud to watching it last night and I basically just went dress shopping on Amazon the whole time it was on. There seemed to be a lot of emphasis on the witch and his chick, which whatever, why am I suppose to be caring about these people again?

I think my returns might pay for my niece's and my tickets to the UK this summer.

Ooooh, trip to the UK! Anything special on the agenda or is it just a site-seeing kind of thing? Woman, you get to go to all the best places!

I have downloaded Cult, but I haven't watched it yet. Have you seen it?

I haven't but after seeing Alona on Ferguson the other night, I now have an interest in watching it. I am a little concerned it might take to much concentration (damn but I have gotten lazy about watching complex TV in the last few years) but the clip they showed little pretty damn intruging.

Thanks, darling!

We both seem to be having weird days lately. Like yesterday I went to the foot doctor and we couldn't find the damn place and I got mega-car sick from the ride. But then he was able to fix the problem with my toe in like ten minutes and it was completely painless. And today my sister had a terrible morning with my mom but she has been having a great afternoon around the house - so this weird mix of good and bad this week.

Sounds like you had an excellent week! I just hope your sister has better days, because it sounds like she needs them.

Thanks! All of my sister's woes have been sorted out, thankfully. It just mega sucks when you get crapped on all at once - or in her case, all within like two hours. But like I was saying in the above comment, this week has been an odd mix of days that are partly good and partly bad, which is still better than the day my sister had on Sunday.

I totally understand the whole world dumping at once. It's EXHAUSTING. So I'm super-glad those things are better now.
