Work has been crazy. Not fun crazy, either. More like Michelle Bachman on LSD crazy. (Actually, that might actually be pretty cool to watch, especially when her husband's circuit party boys joined the melee.)
By my reckoning I'm working three or four jobs right now. As you can imagine, I'm not really feeling on top of things. But everyone else at work is more or less in the same boat, so we aren't pointing any fingers at each other.
I do have occasional contact with Darren, who is still on his road-trip for a few more weeks. Sometimes our emails are neutral, sometimes we clash in unpleasant ways, but no matter what kind of contact we have with each other, I'm always very sad afterward. I may see him later this month, but that's not certain, and I'm not sure if it's wise.
In news from the social pages, in the last month I've gone out on a few dates, or as I prefer to call them "proof of concept" dates. I know I'm in no shape to be in a relationship right now, but it's very encouraging that I've found a few cools guys who are charming, handsome, intelligent and think I am, too. It's a good ego boost after being so thoroughly dumped.
In just under three weeks I have my third (and final dammit!) leg surgery. I dread it, but I'm also looking forward to the time off from work, and I'm even more eager to have this whole 18 month nightmare behind me and be physically well again.
My awesome family and friends have been kind enough to start signing up for times to drop by the house and help me out during the very difficult first two weeks of recovery. I'm so glad to have such great people to support me at what is a pretty damn sucky time.
I'll be off work for three weeks after my surgery on August 31. I've got tons of movies and TV series lined up to watch on Netflix, and I probably have 15 books on my iPad that I should have read ages ago. I'll learn from last summer's mistake, though, and only read fun/funny stuff during my narco-week. (Wow, did I have some messed up hallucinations!) I will also do no knitting. That was messy.
So, there it is. More news when I have it.
