[personal] Things are getting better

The heater guys came and went yesterday. It was a long day, and got awfully cold here in the house. [info]the_child built a fire in the fireplace, and I made liberal use of my new quilt. Nonetheless, a ridiculous amount of money fled my bank account, and in return I have a new, high efficiency heater. Unfortunately, a lot of that money was my convention travel-and-lodging budget for 2012, so I may not be as many places as I'd hoped.

Meanwhile my GI has calmed. Not back to what passes for normal these days, but not in violent rebellion either. I'm hoping to taper off the meds today or tomorrow. We shall see. The result of this was that I slept solidly last night from 7 pm to 4:30 am. I'm still pretty worn out from the last couple of days, but I no longer feel like I'm in dire straits. Just an annoying passage.

In addition to a full day of Day Jobbery, I'm off the Author's Lunch today, an occasional event here in Portland. Otherwise, I'm laying low and keeping my nose shiny and damp. Woof.
