Mom's chemo seems to have shrunk the tumor down to where it isn't detectable to the touch (YAY!), and her surgery is going to be scheduled in a couple weeks. Preparing for an early Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow (slash birthday party) and it smells damned good in here already. I want to start eating early.

And the Sam Adams Cherry Chocolate Bock? Omnomnomnomnom...
Dramatis personae:
Me: Mono, in an LTR with Chops
Chops (previously known as 'P'): partner and best friend. Poly. In LTRs with me and Xena, and dating Noa.
Xena (previously known as M1): My metamour, Poly. Also in an LTR with Chops. Dating Noa and some others.
Noa (previously AG): Dating Chops and Xena (individually).

Lots going on. And lots of crap. It sucks to be me lately.

While I'm here. I'm doing good just now. I'm starting to write a bit again (after a break because of dealing with grief this year), have taught myself to knit socks and have lots of interesting stuff going on in both my paid work and the voluntary stuff I do. (Paid work also has lots of annoyances but hoping it will settle soon).

Relationships with friends and with SO all going well too.

C is healthy and well and seems happy with his life.

Not sure how I should feel right now. Like a lot of people have a lot of day to day BS going on between bills and employment.

But I'm set up to go back to school starting in the spring semester. Going for my AAS in Automotive Technology, and thinking about getting a degree in business management while I am at it, or at least take some of the courses so when I get to open my own shop I know how to run the business side of it.

Thus week started off pretty craptastic.

Scared and worried right now. Wendigo hurt himself pretty badly at work today - got his hand caught in one of the machines. Runic Wolf helped keep him from going into shock and made sure that he found out where the EMT's were taking him so that we could let Pretty Lady know, but I had to call her since Runic Wolf didn't have the number, which meant I got to get a call at work that my boyfriend got his hand mangled in a machine. Thankfully there was some good news in that he didn't lost any fingers, had good circulation, and could feel and move his fingers when the EMT's arrived. Right now we could use all the prayers and healing thoughts people can muster. Not being his wife, there isn't a lot I can do, so I'm sitting here at home while Runic Wolf is out doing our Christmas Shopping.

On a personal note, I found out on Friday that I need to have my terminal ileum and part of my colon removed due to intensive scar tissue in my intestines. . . apparently I have Crohn's and didn't know it. My surgery is the end of next month, so Runic Wolf, Wendigo, and Runic Wolf's new girlfriend and I were supposed to be getting together to hang out this weekend since that will be the second operation I have scheduled next month. Merry Christmas to us.

Nothing dramatic like BrigidsDaughter...hope everyone heals up. wow.

Tonight, I am satisfied and happy.

I have to have a minor surgical procedure tomorrow (which I have had before...it's really not a big deal - some discomfort and a day off of work).

MrS will take me. Dude and Lotus have expressed their concern and support. I feel loved and cherished and "taken care of". Right now, I am feeling that everyone in our tangle just wants everyone else to be happy...and I am. Warm. Comfortable. Lovely.

Me: poly bi female, in an "open-but-not-looking" Vee-plus with -
MrS: hetero polyflexible male, live-in husband (together 21+ yrs)
Dude: hetero poly male, live-in boyfriend (together 3 yrs) and MrS's best friend
Lotus: poly bi female, "it's complicated" relationships with Dude/JaneQ/MrS; married to TT, poly male
VV and MsJ: bi-women with male primaries, LTR LDR FWBs to JaneQ
