I know I'm late with an update, but I headed right out for my cousin's directly from work on the Eve, and returned home at 3am, got 5 or 6 hours sleep and went to work, and all last night and this morning so far has been catching up with reading my f-list.  Had a good time with my cousins, although Pen wasn't feeling well and couldn't get a sitter, so didn't go along, and the place Di and I went to meet up with some friends of hers was quite the dive.  We had a couple of drinks and danced and did some pointing and laughing. :) 

Even in this place, though, there was some slash entertainment to be had. )

As an antidote to the setting I suggested to my cousin that we should sometime see if we couldn't catch a performance of the goth bellydancers, which she seemed delighted at the concept of. :) 

She mentioned she has an LJ, too, but didn't favor me with her name on here, so maybe she's nearly as nervous about family seeing it as I am about mine. ;)

And then we went back to Pen's house and had chocolate cake. (And I had to wonder if the story about not being able to get a sitter and not feeling well was just a ploy so she could stay home and bake the cake.)  It had chocolate and white chocolate chips in it and she had white chocolate orange sauce to droozle over it, and it was lovely! :)  Between the sugar and the pain in my jaws produced by cleaning the holes again, after, I was not the slightest bit sleepy on my drive home, leaving there at 2am.  You can't fall asleep when it feels as though two ten-penny nails are being driven into the joints of your jaw, so I was perfectly safe.  Though I felt much safer when I was on the divided highway.  Every time there was a car oncoming when I was on the two-lane I was watching for a place to ditch out if they were on the wrong side of the road.  The muscles in my jaw could just have begun clenching because of fear.

Am seeing the dentist who took my wisdom teeth out yet again today, for another follow up.  I'm fairly certain there's some infection going on, but otherwise he's probably just going to say (again), "You're just healing slowly because your so OLD!"  Well, he didn't say it quite like that, because he's actually much older than I am (I think - quite often I'm wrong when I make these guesses) but I guess most people do this when they're younger.  My teeth are definitely rearranging themselves, and I've taken a notion that the back teeth are toppling over into the space left from the wisdom teeth, but hopefully it will all sort out and the rest of my teeth will be less crowded and my bite will eventually settle into it's new shape.  It might just take a while for me to get used to it.  It's already easier to floss, especially the back ones.  I think most of the pain, now, is when the jaw muscles tweak out and won't let go.

I'd like to take a moment to compliment the former Lemondropgirl on her switch to [ profile] mollyrazor - I do like this name. :)  (Eor felt it should have been [ profile] steppinrazor, but in fact someone already has that LJ name, and obviously, by her profile, for the same reason.)

I was thinking of doing some sort of review of my year as Eor and many others have done, but I'm not really up to it at the moment.  This entry is too long anyway, and I need to eat and bath and get to the dentist's, so maybe tomorrow.  Oh, no, wait - there's a breakfast at IHOP tomorrow for one of the ex-co-workers who's visiting from Florida.  So I guess not tomorrow.  Thursday, maybe.  And by then everyone will be on to other things.  I'd better not miss out on Thursday, though, as Friday morning I have another dr's appointment.  Sheesh, I'm booked up.  What's up with that??  I hope this isn't a portent of my year to come.  I need lazy time!
I've finally got as far as retroactively posting two installments on last weekend: Friday and Saturday of My Fortieth Birthday Weekend.

To [ profile] captainpellew! :)  I hope you have a great day! :)

(And a very belated Happy Birthday to [ profile] lapis_lazuli, because I remember seeing the notification, but I was either too tired or in too much of a hurry or something when I saw it, and then blanked out on it.)

one cut, since multible cuts really don't make sense anyway )
That kept us up until midnight...

...and we got up at 4:30am to start the long drive home. 
(Another backdated entry - I'm writing this almost a week later, so some details have already gone out of my head.)

returning the dog )
a walk in the woods )
breakfast )
real estate )
music )
stargazing )
[ profile] eor is of course doing his post about the weekend, but I suppose I can still do my own notes.  This, of course, is actually written on 8/16 and backdated.

Five states between us and our goal... )...and my birthday celebration. )

Hey, I got notified of my own birthday. :)  Yup, that's right, I'm officially old as of tomorrow, but I don't care - it's my birthday and I'm getting all excited about it.  We're going to Ohio and get to feast on [ profile] cyberquail's amazing cooking and go to the ren faire, and I'm just all psyched. :) 

My squee is a bit repressed because today was so odd at work, as I'm sure you can imagine.  But people actually took it well, today.  If it drags on they won't be taking it near as well, later on.  And some of our procedures really need to be worked out a little better.  The poor kid who was put in charge of gate screening, today, didn't get breaks at all.  He was all "oh, I don't really mind," he's very laid back, but that doesn't work for day after day.  Anyway, it wasn't too horrible for me, except that I got like twice as much x-ray time as usual because they had me helping two different trainees, and my eyes are damned tired of trying to pick out small containers of liquids/pastes/gels.  That's not so easy.

Going to pack up the car, now.  Wish us luck not hitting any deer, this time. ;)  You probably won't hear from me again until Tuesday.
My darling, my sweet, love of my life and center of my Universe. ;) 

(Of course, as I'm sure you realize, at this moment I still haven't gotten you anything. I'm doing this "I should be out! Looking for a present!" freak out, and the sane part of my mind is saying "Yeah, right - where are you going to buy something at 7AM?" There's several other brain parts trying to get a word in edgewise, including the one which demands breakfast, but this is getting too cluttered.)

I suppose the only answer at this point is to put it off to the weekend.
Feeling somewhat better today.  Still coughing, and my hearing is still fuzzy, I can tell, but the ringing in my ears has stopped. 

You know you've got a really bad memory when you need Semagic to remind you of your sweetie's birthday.  A few days ago I was quite aware of it, but the last couple of days I've been too sunk in my own misery of being sick.  Now I'm doing the "How the heck am I supposed to get him something before tomorrow?" freak out.  I don't have a car, so I can't get anywhere.  I wish Semagic would have reminded me yesterday, so I could have walked (very slowly). 

In fact, though, now that I think of it, he did say something about Monday being Memorial Day and quizzing me on what that meant, and I thought it meant his birthday - that's how confused I was, yesterday.  But what he was driving at was that we always go put flowers on his grandparent's graves on Memorial Day weekend, and this year we'll incorporate going to my grandparent's graves as well, because it shouldn't be too far out of the way. 
I hope your celebrations are brilliant and your next year brings you all you desire. :)
Hope you're having a fantabulous day with lots of pampering! :)

I'm 34-soon-to-be-35. This is a good age to have a crisis.
I got laid off a week and a half ago.
Several days after that I found out my Grandmother has gone to a convalescent home.
And yet somehow I don't think my 35th birthday is going to feel nearly as bad as my 30th did. I could be wrong, but right this minute, despite everything, I feel pretty good.
That's actually kind of scary.
