Greetings once more, fellow travelers on this here rock. And a Happy Saturday to youse guys!
First off, I wanted to thank everybody who sent warm thoughts to my big sis earlier this week. She came through the procedure just fine. Now it's just a matter of waiting to hear back. Which probably won't be until next Thursday. She seems to be doing well overall though I can see the worry in her face sometimes. But she's doing her best to keep that locked down. So for now, we wait. Bleh.
But thank you all for the good thoughts and well wishes. I am just continually amazed by the warmth and generosity of people around here on LJ. A lot of us have never met, will likely (and unfortunately) probably not get to meet and talk over a cup of coffee but the genuine warmth and generosity is amazing and wonderful. I've seen people give from the heart and from the wallet for so many people and have seen them really rally around their LJ friends in all my years here. It really makes me smile and feel good about humanity. I just want you all to know that I appreciate you guys from the bottom of my heart. You are a wonderful and inspiring group of folks. So thank you for being you and for being so kind to me and to one another. It's easy to be cynical and mean these days... and we see it A LOT especially here on the internets but it's nice to see the flip side of that and see such wonderful warmth and generosity from so many people. So thank you.
Well... it was another typical week here. Work, work, deal with idiots at work, work, work, try to avoid prison for stabbing idiot co-workers in the eye with a #2 pencil, work, work... you know, the usual. There were a few wrinkles to the week... my sister's thing for instance. But I did get to spend Monday night and all of Tuesday with pixie117 who had some oral surgery done. The girl is tough. I'm quite certain I would have been curled up in a ball in the corner whimpering and crying but she came through it feeling okay for the most part. She's had some aches and pains that one would expect from having part of your jaw shaved off but she is a tough, tough girl. And it was nice getting to hang out with her and play "nursemaid". Not that I did much but still. We hung out and I did my best to make sure she was taken care of. Plus I wasn't at work on Tuesday which is a double-bonus!
I am so tantalizingly close to finishing off Project O' Doom I. I started in on the revision/overhaul of the last section last night. After that, it's a matter of reading it over all of the sections one final time and making any last minute tweaks and then finally releasing it back out into the wild. I'm actually starting to get excited about seeing the end of the line for this one. I'm excited to take it to Phase II and see what comes of it. Super excited even. I'm hoping to have that done and off my plate completely by Monday or Tuesday of next week and after that... it shall be set free. And then I can turn my whole focus and attention back on Project O' Doom II which has been feeling somewhat neglected of late. I still take it out and play with it but it doesn't have my whole focus and it knows it so it's fighting me a bit and progress has been a bit slow with it. So hopefully, we can kiss and make up next week and get that rolling again. Which is also exciting for me. Though I probably shouldn't talk about it so much so as to not appear that I'm bragging or beating my chest about it. Ahem.
Anyway... all in all, it was a decent week. Obviously, some worries but I'm going to keep thinking good thoughts and hope that everything turns out for the best. pixie117 and I had a bit of an adventure last weekend that you can read about in my earlier post. Not sure what this weekend holds just yet but there may be another adventure in the mix! We'll just see how the poor girl is feeling today.
So what about you, my fine, feathered friends? How was your week? Was it full of stress or did you celebrate 420 and mellow the hell out with a bag of Cheetos and nature show documentaries? What have been the highlights and lowlights of your week? What made the final production and what ended up on the cutting room floor? How has the Universe treated you? With a velvet glove or an iron fist? Has humanity made you believe in kindness again or has it made you want to stab people with a spork more than ever?
