So I haven't done an update in a bit, guess I should.

I've been working ALOT. As of april 1st, my department is down to half staff. This means working 5 days a week 10-12 hours a day. This has left me with very little time, but the potential for a goodly amount of overtime. What little time I have had has been taken up with the new boy in my life. Those who have been around me in the last month or so have probably heard enough about that. :) Lets just say he makes me very happy.

The working lots has put off my apartment search. I'm now looking at beginning of july at best, unless something perfect shows up. Perfect being somewhere between westbrook and buxton with 1+ bedrooms, accepts cats, has a clawfoot tub, and is in a decent neighborhood with a yard big enough for an archery range. That would be perfect.

The other side of working lots is a lowering of my spending inhibition. :) I seem to be indulging my childhood memories. Firstly is the sugar bowl I picked up. It is made of Melmac. I clearly remember mom having a green serving dish made of the stuff. So I have gone on a spree of finding pieces to match my bowl. I have a serving dish on the way and have bid on a creamer and small bowl as well as a small dinner set. I blame Camille for the last.

Secondly I finally picked up a copy of a book I read as a child. 'The tinker's wife and the cave of black cats' by margaret and mary baker. The copy I got also has 'the silver crown' by them as well. it is signed to boot! :) I clearly remember the book. I had read it while waiting in a doctors office. The illustrations are all 'papercut' and still vivid in my mind. More so now that I have refreshed it.

I think tha is all my news for now. If I think of more I may post it. :)

You are The Empress

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.

The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents,
beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home
decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.

The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.

So I have been given the Dianosis of Limited Scleroderma, which may elevate to Lupus depending on the result of several blood tests. Scleroderma is literally "thick skin". It is classified as an auto immune disease where the body produces too much collagen (must be why I look so young) The collagen is deposited in the skin and internal organs causing the skin to thicken and harden, this increased collagen also causes problems with oil and sweat glands. Before you all start to get worried, I have few sypmtoms indicating internal problems. Often they never do happen.

This does explain my Reynaud's, my chronically swollen fingers, the numbness in my hands that was not carpel tunnel, the unusual thickness of the skin on my palms (Josh, get out of the gutter), my dry skin, the lovely red spots on my face, possibly explain my fatigue and unexplained joint pains, and my recurring heart burn.

So I get to look forward to adding one more maintenance drug to my list, (How many do you have to have before you are officially old?) and to carrying nitroglycerine ointment with me. I'll never get past a bomb smelling dog again...

I Am A: Neutral Good Elf Sorcerer (5th Level)

Ability Scores:







Neutral Good A neutral good character does the best that a good person can do. He is devoted to helping others. He works with kings and magistrates but does not feel beholden to them. Neutral good is the best alignment you can be because it means doing what is good without bias for or against order. However, neutral good can be a dangerous alignment because it advances mediocrity by limiting the actions of the truly capable.

Elves are known for their poetry, song, and magical arts, but when danger threatens they show great skill with weapons and strategy. Elves can live to be over 700 years old and, by human standards, are slow to make friends and enemies, and even slower to forget them. Elves are slim and stand 4.5 to 5.5 feet tall. They have no facial or body hair, prefer comfortable clothes, and possess unearthly grace. Many others races find them hauntingly beautiful.

Sorcerers are arcane spellcasters who manipulate magic energy with imagination and talent rather than studious discipline. They have no books, no mentors, no theories just raw power that they direct at will. Sorcerers know fewer spells than wizards do and acquire them more slowly, but they can cast individual spells more often and have no need to prepare their incantations ahead of time. Also unlike wizards, sorcerers cannot specialize in a school of magic. Since sorcerers gain their powers without undergoing the years of rigorous study that wizards go through, they have more time to learn fighting skills and are proficient with simple weapons. Charisma is very important for sorcerers; the higher their value in this ability, the higher the spell level they can cast.

Odd morning

So here it is, 8:40 in the morning, and I have been awake for atleast an hour. This promises to be a very strange day.

I had the coolest dream last night. There was a song in my head, lyrics and a melody, and they were just flowing out. Sometimes I would have to stop and change a word or note, but the creative feeling was just wonderful. I woke up thinking "This must be what it feels like to be Tracie." Of course Awake I can't remember any of the song, but the feeling still remains.

Many of you who read my post will know who Tracie is, for those of you who don't I would suggest going here http://www.reverbnation.com/traciecallahan . She is a very talented folk singer/song writer, a wonderful human being, and a great friend. *Watches Tracie Hide from all the praise* And she is modest too. ;)

In other odd news, Hubby and I rearranged the bedroom last night. Our room is not huge, so we basicly just changed the orientation of the bed, which is huge. When Maia came to bed she settled down in her usual spot. Her Usual spot relative to the room that is, not the bed. I wound up spending the night with a kitten tucked behind my knees...

Oh and for those who are interested, my version of the hardwick hall oak leaf pillow is going well. Though my miscalculation of how many stitches per inch is going to make my pattern a tad more dense. If I keep the pillow the same size as the original, I'll have 200 leaves as compared to their 105. I have 4 leaves completed at the moment. *chuckles*

Doctors... ALL OF THEM!

I know I am way over due for a post, and maybe someday I will post something meaningful. Until then I give you this...
