Starting to get the ketone-breath thing less, which is good. I shall continue to drink ludicrous amounts of water.

I don't quite feel like I'm Home until I've been on the T. The T is uniquely Boston. <3 So yesterday, I took the T to Diesel, and I had many happy sighs.

I haven't been writing much fiction over the summe; Lyrica withdrawal made me a bear of little brain, and then there was Florida. But it is worthy of note that I have been gushing poetry like arterial spray. My notebook, it is filling up.

I wish it was sellable, at least! *laugh* But It's not SF/F, so I don't even know who'd want it - and I'm not posting it here just yet because a lot of it is so deeply me figuring things out, and it's too deeply personal... I need a bit of space. So. At some point.

Yesterday's train poem was wistful/whimsical, though, so I may post it, once I've sent it to its intended recipient. If they don't want it to be just theirs.

Now that I'm a ways past the breakup with the girl (and my brain has backdated the breakup to when the relationship stopped being functional, so it really feels like forever ago), and with the benefit of that space between that I mentioned yesterday, I'm seeing just how much of my time and energy was getting poured into the relationship.

I've been saying for years that my dance card is full. Well. My dance card? No longer full. And I am not looking for another Relationship. But it would be nice to date a bit. (Yes, marriage and relationship with boyfriend are still peachy keen! But I'm more socially active than Adam, and Mark does have a wife and kids that need significant amounts of his time. So I have time.)

Free Will Astrology
Uncle Rob says: "The month of August brought you some peculiar advances. You got a reward that didn't mean as much to you as it might have had you received it earlier. You outgrew an enigma that had puzzled and frustrated you forever. And you finally wriggled free of a shadowy game that you had been attached to long after it lost its power to educate you. As curious as these wistful breakthroughs have been, they are prologue to what's headed your way. Get ready to solve a problem you didn't even know you loved."

*gives Uncle Rob the hairy eyeball*

I have been friended by an alpaca farm in California. o.O Facebook friending continues to surprise me.

...I'm seeing just how much of my time and energy was getting poured into the relationship.

Isn't that amazing when you're on the other side of it? I recently made a similar discovery about my own shit.

Indeed. LDRs always take up a lot of bandwidth, but... yeah.
2nd-Sep-2009 07:19 pm (UTC)
I hate LDR's to the point that I really don't do them especially if there is no foreseeable way to close the distance. It takes quite a few people off the prospective list, whether they were interested or not, because the military owns us for a few years yet.

*Wink* Wish we lived in Boston!
2nd-Sep-2009 07:34 pm (UTC)
That *would* be nice. :)

It's actually been a while since I *haven't* had an LDR! I was dating Boston guys when I lived in Atlanta, and then I was dating her already when I moved here. I'm accustomed to them. Local is, of course, far preferable!

Our next duty station is looking to be in WA state, which from what I read seems to be the Home of the mysterious Unicorn or Hot Bi-Babe. Intriguing.

Which service/station? I grew up near Ft. Lewis/McChord AFB.
3rd-Sep-2009 03:56 am (UTC)
Lewis. We are Army...well, he is. I'm the wife. :) AJ was born at Lewis and really likes the PacNW. I've never been, and don't like the sun, so I figure this would be perfect.

I think it's a great place to live; in a lot of ways, I still consider it "home" even though I've lived in Cambridge longer than I lived in Washington state. (How good a place to live is it? Well, my dad would take a tour in Korea whenever we otherwise would have had to move somewhere else, and he retired there. So yeah.)

Also, as an Army brat/Army brother, I understand "We are Army"...because I've lived it. (See above about Korea tours, etc.) Military spouse can be a real tough job, and I salute anyone who does it.
3rd-Sep-2009 05:03 am (UTC)
Thanks! I really look forward to leaving TN. I am originally from PA and the weather here kills me! We lived in Germany for awhile and we would love to go back but I have Fibro and now pulmonary embolisms so overseas is closed to us.

AJ grew up an Army brat, whereas I never moved growing up. We are now just starting what is hopefully his last deployment and I look forward to never sitting up all night because he isn't here and, silly me, I worry.

I've been there and it's not an easy place to be. I wish you both the best.

Thank you.

An alpaca farm in California? Wow! I'm so there :D
2nd-Sep-2009 09:53 pm (UTC) - Re: :)
Thank you, will shortly.

This: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/8234533.stm sidetracked me.
2nd-Sep-2009 10:26 pm (UTC) - Re: :)
Oh, hey.

What was Lyrica misleadingly prescribed for? Any more specific articles?
2nd-Sep-2009 10:31 pm (UTC)
But it would be nice to date a bit.

Sometime, when I'm visiting Vermont I'd love to bring you up for a weekend. Just sayin.

That would be nice. :)
