I just thought it was about time that I sat down and write a really good post about what's up in FrogLand.
Tomorrow will be exactly six weeks since my hysterectomy. I feel amazing! For such an invasive surgery I have to say that the recovery has been pretty easy. Can I tell you how amazing it is to not be in near constant abdominal pain (my back pain continues to be unceasing)? A person can only deal with so much at a time and I was at my limit. If anyone in the Seattle area is need of an astounding GYN surgeon I'll point you in the direction of mine!
My Thanksgiving was great, I hope yours was too (if you celebrate, I know I have some international followers). I got to spend it will three good friends I already had, and made a few more. E, you are an fantastic cook and I thank you again for having us over.
I got to have a second Thanksgiving, or Friendsgiving, at D and E's (a different E) house. There were 30-ish people there and TONS of amazing food. It was a great time and I learned that I'm pretty good at the game Cards Against Humanity. They are hosting a Giftmas party as well and I'm really looking forward to that! Ugly sweaters and white elephants!
In health news other than the surgery; there is nothing new to report! No news is good news right? I'm hoping to make it through the winter without IVs since I ended up doing three rounds in six months this year. I have a daily cough, of course, but that's nothing new. I try to be religious about doing my treatments as I should. Sometimes my back doesn't let me though.
I could use some more money in my bank account, but who couldn't? I realize now that once my lease is up on my apartment in the spring I will have to move. As it stands now I'll be moving in with two of my best friends (I have like, 50 best friends but these two are at the top of the list), B and N. They have a condo with an extra room. The arrangement they are offering me would help all of us out immensely. Its farther outside of Seattle than I would like, mostly due to the fact that I don't drive, but I have to do what I have to do. As it stands right now if the cat needs to go to the vet (knock on wood) I'd be screwed. So, thanks B and N for helping a broke frog out. I've never been the type to care about having shiny new, fancy stuff, but a little bit of security would be a nice change.
I've been dating some, but I seem to be the perpetual victim of the guys who just drop off the face of the earth with no explanation. I shouldn't say "victim" because I don't feel like a victim. Yeah, its irritating, but in the end I don't need people like that in my life. There is one guy that I'm interested in but I'm being patient with him. I get the impression he needs to come to terms with some things and maybe learn some lessons about life and love before he moves on in the whole dating/relationship world. I'm not waiting with bated breath, but I also refuse to settle for someone who is less of a man and wonderful human being than this guy is. Either he will figure it out, or he won't and I will find someone who is just as sweet, funny, creative, and all those other things I look for in a partner/lover/companion. If nothing else I have a friend for life, no matter what ends up happening I could never resent him or hate him. He's never treated me badly, never made me feel bad about myself even unintentionally. He's also made me hyper-aware of what I want and deserve. He doesn't know that, but I thank him for it anyway!
Really, I guess I just want to say that life is awesome! Its not perfect but, I'm so happy with the way things are going and what I see in my future. Life would be boring if it was always perfect anyway! I'm excited to spend the rest of the holidays with all of my friends, and for making new friends!
