Life is just chugging along nicely. No dramas to report. Things evolve and change and are good on the home front.

Stressors:

Work - old news. New computer system is stressing me to know end and is just now, 5 months in, beginning to feel "do-able". Still weeks behind on paperwork type chores - but plugging away.

The main thing on my plate right now - I am hosting a big family event in one week and there is so much to do to prepare that I hardly know where to start. Luckily, Dude is stepping up to the plate to handle his part without me having to poke and prod. MrS I know I can count on to do whatever I need him to do - as long as I am specific about the task and the time-frame. Fortunately my family is very, VERY easygoing about...everything - I can count on them to go with the flow no matter what. So the stress is mainly in my own head.

I had a great night with my girlfriend(kid free night!)! Had a few drinks played a few games of pool. Got home hung out and had a great time. My relationships are going good now I just need to focus on business! Getting my act together is the hard part ayer a bad year. But I'm positive things are getting better. ....... Now if I could sleep, that would be great.

Things are going pretty well, all in all. There's still awkwardness between Chops and the kids, but that's to be expected, and it just takes time to find a comfortable place, even when I feel conflicted between them at times.

Oh, and hamstring tendonitis. Not fun. Can't go for a run (plod) until this goes away, so it'll be walking for me! (This is what I get for getting completely out of shape and trying to start with a run again... sigh...).

Sorry i just don't really know how to put him sometimes. Nate is our girlfriend but he's slowly attempting to become cis. Some days he's my boyfriend and some days he feels feminine and is my girlfriend. He doesn't prefer either pronoun so i just say b/g friend ( boy/girl) when I have to type it out. It does sound off though.

I had an amazing weekend. Hung out with my parents, went to a play party and ran a fun scene, played with my pets, went to a delightfully odd water ballet show, and had ridiculous fun on a geocaching birthday tour. So much goodness!

Living in Maine I make it a point to never complain about the summer heat since winter feels like it last 9 months out of the year here, lol.
