Time to get busy

Today is my first day of work at my new gig. I already have several appointments and opportunities on my plate and a conference on my calendar, with more to follow, as well as the normal administrivia that's required for any new job. I'm optimistic and reasonably enthusiastic, and looking forward to digging in. Go, me.

She ain't heavy, she's my sister

I returned from San Diego on Thursday where I was visiting Sister from Another Mister The Mechanicky Gal and her beau, The Mechanicky Guy. I had a wonderful time as always, and it reminded me how very important my friendships are to me, and how much I loves me my sistas. Even if they do make me repeatedly climb the The Hill of Doom™ in the name of health and fitness.

And in other news, I have a fabulous new Michael Kors satchel!


How I am

Better.

Not "well," not "over it," Not ready to "move on." Really, I'm not even close to working through my feelings about Moe's death and how I want this seminal event to shape the rest of my life. But...better. I think about Moe a lot, each and every day, but the thoughts aren't always grief-stricken - sometimes they're a thought about, "she would have loved this" when I'm in a store. Sometimes they're a thought about social justice, and how she would have been so pleased about the progress of the LGBT community, had she lived. And sometimes it still hits me like a punch in the gut, and I want to scream with grief and despair. But the former is happening a bit more often, and the latter is happening a bit less often.

I think that's the best I can hope for right now.
