And since? Yeah. Busybusy.

* The day after Wiscon, I took a bus out to Vermont for a Frank Turner concert! Had a wonderful time with Jake, Aimee, and Toby. <3 This was absolutely the right choice; I got to effect a slow re-entry into everyday life. Plus. Frank Turner. And I got my Dobra Tea, which is my traditional last act at Wiscon; the Dobra in Madison closed down, but there's one in Burlington!

* Elayna got all her transfer-student stuff done!

* Friday and Saturday = plotting and planning with Mat and, later, Adam. You'll see some of the results of that soon. :) This isn't just my Year of Being Brave - it's my year of figuring out what I really want and making it happen.

* Saturday night was a great party, which meant Sunday was largely recovery!

* Monday was mostly cleaning up for tomorrow's foster care home visit.

* Yesterday was try #2 with sedated dentistry - and it worked! Tripled the sedative. I was pretty much floating in and out during the procedure. Which apparently gets done in two parts; they'll call me today to schedule part 2. I am very happy that I got through that without my PTSD being triggered. SO happy. Being utterly exhausted in my brain and body all day and night was annoying, but worth it.

Today Elayna's going to Maeve's and I'll have some writing time; tomorrow is the home visit, an orthopedist appointment, and dinner with a friend from out of town. And now you are caught up.

At least as much as you can be. Because spoilers.

Glad the dentistry went well.
As unpleasant as it is, they have proven that oral health has a HUGE effect on your overall health.
GOOD FOR YOU! For not giving up and taking care of yourself, even when it was scary!

I don't think I knew Elayna was transferring! Will she be closer to home?

Yes! And much happier. 90% of the problems she was having were related to the school being too small and cliquish and to it being so far away from anything. She's transferring to a larger-but-not-huge school closer to home, with commuter rail access. :)

I guess you have a lot of plates spinning, but it all seems like stuff you have been working on and wanting to happen…

-I hope Elayna is much happier at her new school. I believe you mentioned she is going to the same state university my partner attended, and he greatly enjoyed his experiences there. The residence halls are also really nice.

-You are inspiring me to have a Year of Being Brave. Thank you for always being so open and honest in your entries. And for sharing some amazing ideas!

-Congratulations on making it through the dentistry! I know how disappointed you were the first time, so I feel like this an apology from karma. May Part II be even more painless!

-…And good luck on the home visit. I think any foster child would be blessed to live in a home as accepting and loving as yours.

Have fun with the writing, and best wishes :)!
