I found out today that in 4 weeks my family doctor is going on maternity leave until July of next year.

I also found out that my lady parts are pink and healthy looking, so the day was 1 for 2.

I bought a new raincoat. I like it a good deal.

I am FINALLY getting a haircut, after going far, far, FAR too long without one because we were broke. The appointment availability came up so suddenly that I am now at a loss as to what to do with this mess of hair once I get there tomorrow at 6 pm.

I really feel like I'm getting bigger chunks of my old life back. I'm coming up on my second MS-versary in December. I spent the first year just mentally *dealing* (and not very well) with the idea that I now have a chronic, progressive and incurable illness. The past 10 months or so have been steady, upward progress and I now feel like some of that progress is starting to reap benefits.

NOW I have to get back into my swing of things. The weight is coming off because I'm watching what I eat and exercising in some way each and every day. I'm trying to get out more. In November I want to have a cocktail party housewarming. I have some vacation time and so I'd like to take a couple of days off to write over an extra-long weekend.

For the first time in forever I feel like I am moving forward. I've given up on certain dreams only to come up with new ones. I have an idea for a plan, but since it relies on me having actual talent, the US government and me staying healthy for quite a few more years... I will probably have to rewrite it or scrap it entirely.

Now to get this move over.
