A Bunch of Things Make a Post 
26th-Sep-2013 06:36 am
* I have been super low-energy and dealing with some pretty massive fatigue for several weeks now; that's almost certainly contributed to the lack of posting!

* A factor in that is that my sleep schedule is totally b0rked. Waking up around 5 AM is not unusual. Daytime naps are the norm. This is frustrating! I'm hoping that Michael and Lynne's visit helps reset that, like my visit to them did.

* Have been jamming on the knitting; whipped out a cowl for Elayna and a birthday scarf for my dad. I want to make fingerless mitts for myself, but knitting magic loop is arduous and annoying for me; I tried to teach myself two circs, but failed. I will try again today. I'll need to do small-diameter knitting in the round for the sleeves and pockets of Elayna's sweater, so I need that back in my skillset!

* I'm back to BARCC volunteering - I had a thing Monday, and I have a thing today. Starting slow. It feels good to be back.

* Max... perseveres. He is delicate and too skinny. He has days when he eats all his food, and days when he nibbles. He is all bones and lethargy. But he came upstairs last week for the first time in weeks. But he's having seizures. (The seizures scare him - his heart pounds like a wild thing - but he goes back to purring and snuggling soon.) I love him and I cuddle him and I make sure he's comfortable.

* I miss Elayna, and I still find myself pausing at around three with "Oooh, kid will be home soon!" Kid will not be home soon. Daily active parenting --> college parenting is a huge adjustment, and my life has been full of huge adjustments this year.

* Looking forward to the weekend - on Friday, Adam and I will see Twelfth Night. Saturday is the MIT Glass Pumpkin Patch! And also a party and another thing or two if I've time and energy.

And Sunday? Sunday, Michael, Lynne, and Caitlin arrive. <3

Enjoy Twelfth Night; Theatre@First has done a wonderful job on it.

(aedifica and I went on opening night, and if we didn't have conflicting plans I'd be more than a little tempted to go again Friday with you and Adam.)

We will see you at Twelfth Night, as we will be attending Saturday night as well. :)

Wonderful! Do you have dinner or dessert plans?

EDIT: Wait, did you mean Friday? We're Friday.

I'm old-fashioned and just stick with double-pointed needles for all my small-diameter knitting. But they're not everyone's cup of tea, I know.

I don't know how to use them, have have the same problem learning them via video that I do with everything else. :(

Keep loving & cuddling Max. I have found great comfort in spending time with my cats when their time was drawing near & I know they did too. It's left me able to cope a little better when the time comes.

If I can help let me know. Consider a virtual hug offered to you and virtual scritches & strokes for Max.
