So. Tired. Again

apollymi: Chris and Vin with a heart, no text (Mag7**Chris/Vin: ❤)
I seem to have encountered a time warp this evening. I sat down on my couch and was doing stuff. At one point, I looked down and it was around 9:00. The next thing I know, [personal profile] katsuko is calling my name and it's around 10:00. Either I hit a time warp or I fell asleep on the couch... while sitting up... without typing in my sleep. Either one is possible. Hell, it's me: either one is actually pretty damn likely.

With that in mind, I'm calling it a fairly early night. I'm going to throw myself at my bed and hope that, one, sleep comes quickly and, two, that Boo lets me stay asleep without demanding too many pettings as payment. (I swear, it's like being in with the kitty mafia for a cuddle deficit.

So. Tired.

apollymi: Grover sitting on a cow, text reads "I'm on a cow" (SS**Grover: I'm on a cow)
Seriously, I'm so tired, but I seem to lack the ability to pass out, even for a quick nap, right now. I got to the work area in time to have some breakfast this morning, which was good... but it was a Tuesday at work, which means that every asshole and idiot was out in force. What is it with these people and testing on Tuesdays? I wish to all the gods I knew. But it's a definite trend we have all seen going for the last few weeks.

It definitely made last week good, because there was no Tuesday crowd to deal with. That might have been the one upshot of the bad weather, other than the school being closed.

But that's neither here nor there. I got to work. I made it through the long, long work day. I left work and took the MARTA to IKEA... where I waited on [personal profile] katsuko to get off work. And honestly the two hours and forty-five minutes I was there felt just about as long as my entire work day did. I found myself a quiet corner there... that kept getting invaded by loud people. So that wasn't a lot of fun.

Made it home, and I thought I would nap while [personal profile] katsuko finished up dinner. But Boo wasn't digging that too much, so it didn't really happen. She wanted pettings and to purr, so of course that's what ended up happening instead of a nap.

But I think I'm going to try throwing myself at my bed and seeing if she'll let me sleep this time now. Wish me luck!

Handoff

apollymi: Zack looking confused, text reads "WTF?" (FF7**Zack: WTF?)
[personal profile] katsuko and I have been handing my phone back and forth for nearly five hours now, working on the same story. She writes a while, then I write a while, then she does, and so on. It means we've managed over 3000 words between the two of us today. (It also means that I have to leave my phone plugged in because we are seriously murdering my battery... but it's all good, because so many words!)

You see, [personal profile] katsuko came up with an AU off one of Worst Case Scenario stories, where Faraday puts in an early appearance. It's spiraled out of control. It's two parts long... and mine is already nearly 8,000 words. Because it's out of control. Really. Also, I think sometimes I give Jack the Horse too much personality. Other times, I don't think I give him enough. Because I adore Jack the Horse.

And after all that, I'm not sure I've got much words left in me. I think I'm ready to go the hell to bed for the night. I think I'm going to do just that.

So... good night, my freaky darlings.

Quiet day

apollymi: Carl holding bottle of holy water, text from Monty Python & the Holy Grail (VH**Carl: Holy hand grenade)
I have had so much kitty assistance today. Luci has been all over the place. She's given me at least three free breast exams, and she's checked to see if where I got my flu shot is still sore. I hate to inform her that, yes, it still is, thank you very much.

I am vaguely annoyed that I'm missing one part of Resurrectionist. I tend to work on Scrivener a bit right before bed, and sometimes that means I do stupid stuff with it when I get too sleepy. Apparently this time I deleted all the text from the file. And I have no idea when it happened. So however many words there were are gone, and I have no way to get them back except to just rewrite them. It just makes me mad, because it had been going fairly well... but also because I'm still a little uncertain on the crossover characters. So I'm sad to lose that progress.

But I've had several good writing days in a row, and that makes me happy after my poor showing in August. I will make September be a better month for writing... especially with Mag7week starting on the 23rd.

And that's all I've got. I'm going to try to get a bit more done before I go to bed tonight, but that entirely depends on how much [personal profile] katsuko gets written in the corresponding section.

So long, my freaky darlings.

Cupcakes

apollymi: Doujinshi art, Roy & Ed, no text (FMA**Roy/Ed: These quiet moments)
I finally got to have my "it's not cancer" dessert. I decided to go with cupcakes. I have a lemon drop one, because I love lemon drop cupcakes from Cami Cakes, and [personal profile] katsuko had a Cookie and Cream one, because what's a celebration if you can't include your best friend and better half? I even posted photos of my "it's not cancer" cupcakes on Instagram, Tumblr, and Facebook, because that's how I roll apparently.

I rebought a purse that I had returned for rent money last month, and I feel vaguely happy about this. I liked the purse quite a bit, but keeping a roof over our head was more important.

And yeah, that's about all I've got for today. I'm shortly to head back the hall for bed, and I think that [personal profile] katsuko is going to sleep out on her bed for the night, since Luci has decided she can't stand a closed bedroom door. (But she and Boo need some space, because otherwise the relationship between them is just going to keep getting worse and worse.)

And that's definitely it. Good night, all.

Not Cancer

Friday, 15 September 2017 11:59 pm
apollymi: Manic look Ninth Doctor, text reads "I solemnly swear I'm up to no good" (DW**9th Doctor: Up to no good)
So I had my two/three doctors' appointments today. And the good news is... it's not cancer.

I started my day with the saline ultrasound, and while I was on the bench, they finally got me my results back from the biopsies last week... with the "not cancer" results. The walls of my uterine cavity are very thick for my age and health: about 1.3" centimeters thick. And the wonky periods now have a likely root cause. And that is a 3 cm long, 0.5 cm thick fibroid in my uterine cavity.

And may I say for the record that the saline ultrasound sucked? Because it did. It really did. But it didn't suck nearly as badly as the biopsies did. Plus the ultrasound tech and Dr. Hathaway and I spent a large portion of the time we we doing all this chatting about Captain America, DragonCon, and the Avengers. That helped a lot towards distracting myself.

My second appointment was basically Dr. Hathaway explain the results of the ultrasound today and the one last week. She did discuss with me the fact that I"m going to have to have outpatient surgery to get the fibroid removed. I gave some thought to asking her to just take the whole damn uterus, because I have no interest in keeping it, but somehow I didn't.

All in all, I liked the staff at that branch of my gynecologist's better than the Sandy Springs location. Everyone was a lot nicer, and they all treated me like I had a brain in my head, which isn't to say that the other location talked down to me, but I've been to enough gynecologists who do.

I did a quick lunch with [personal profile] katsuko at The Flying Biscuit. It was delicious as always... and it turned out that it was only five minutes from my primary physician. That was a quick visit. We went over my blood tests, Dr Woodhouse upped my Paxil prescription from 10mg to 20mg, and I got two jabs: tDap and flu. Because I'm hoping not get sick on my birthday this year.

After all that, I went to Panera while [personal profile] katsuko was at Mirko, and after she got out, we did a celebratory dinner at Jinya. I feel like I stuffed myself, but it's a happy thing... Even if it means that I can't quite seem to keep my eyes open now.

So I'm going on to bed. Sleep well, all.

Holy shit

apollymi: Usagi, wide eyed and excited, text reads "boy porn!1!" (BSSM**Usagi: Boy porn!1!)
Holy shit, today was a fan-fucking-tastic writing day. I'm still going, mind you, but I'm over 3000 words, closing in on 4000.... and I'm still going. I've needed a writing day like this since August, truth be told, and I'm so damn glad it finally hit. I might get on track for where I need to be for September with today's push.

So far for #365k/365Day, I'm finished. I finished back in August. I have written well over 365,000 words so far this year. However, I'm enjoying the challenge, so I'm definitely going to keep going through December to see just how many words I can actually make happen.

So far, August has been the only month that I've written less than the minimum. My best month was May, when I wrote 65,974 words. June was the second best, with 61,853 words. So far this year, not counting today's words, I have written 387,947 words. I'm almost 23 days or 23,000 words past the goal.

So yeah, that's coming along nicely.

Apparently the key to me getting some good writing done is to switch between a couple of stories. Whatever works, right?

And I'm going to get back to that now. Later, all.

Quick post

apollymi: Ginji in taro/chibi mode with teary eyes (GB**Ginji: *wibble eyes*)
Yeah, I'm not sure I really actually have a lot to say today. I'm freaking exhausted. My foot hurts, my ankle hurts, my back hurts, and my shoulder hurts.

You see, I went into work this morning like normal. When I got to the right floor of my building, the lobby door was closed. It turned out that Prometric itself was closed, but Georgia State was open. So at first I thought, well, this will be a nice quiet day. That's what I get for thinking, though, because we ended up cleaning the waiting room, office, and testing room from top to bottom. Yes, literally from top to bottom: I dusted the ceiling vents and walls, and Glynda vacuumed. We ended the day with a two hour meeting, which wasn't quite as painful as it could have been.

But all that up and down took its toll on me, and now I hurt. If it wasn't so late at night and if [personal profile] katsuko didn't have a 6:00 a.m. shift tomorrow, I would take a Flexaril, but I completely forgot I had them until now. Whoops.

Anyway, that's it for me. I'm going to finish up this little bit of writing I have going, and then I'm off to bed. Later, all.

Quick update

Tuesday, 12 September 2017 11:52 pm
apollymi: Animated, Roy sparks the lighter, no text (FMA**Roy: Set the world aflame)
This is just a quick update. I'm back to work tomorrow. I'll be there tomorrow and Thursday, but then Friday I have two doctor's appointments. Well, technically three, but I think that the two gynecologist appointments may or may not count as one. I think I might count them as one, at least for now.

I worked on Resurrectionist a bit today, which was good. I'm getting closer to having "After First Love" done, as well as "New Orleans", "Setting the Stage", and "Bite". I actually thought that I had "New Orleans" done, but I'm having to add little bits here and there. I made a small change in one of the Shelter stories and loved it, so I'm incorporating it into a few of the other stories as well. It doesn't work for Monstrous: After Midnight or Wicked Ones, but it does for Shelter, Resurrectionist, and Uncollared... and nothing in Trinity contradicts it, so it can be a quiet bit of canon for me there too.

All that said, I might try to work on an AU I have in mind for the Monstrous universe some tomorrow. I mean, it's straight up crack, but come on: that verse needs some straight up crack. It features an Old God, a Fae, an Antichrist, and an angel of death. It needs some crack. And given that I can't share this AU until after I finish Monstrous: After Midnight and Monstrous: Dark Nights doesn't really bother me all that much.

After all, I've got pretty much all of Shelter and Uncollared that I'm not sure I have any intention of ever sharing. I guess that all depends on the reception that Resurrectionist gets.

Speaking of Resurrectionist, [personal profile] katsuko and I are planning on posting for the Mag7 week challenge at the end of the month. We'll be hitting the following days:
*Day 2 - September 24: Self-Sufficiency: Monstrous: After Midnight - Sam Side-Story
*Day 3 - September 25: Alternate Universe: Resurrectionist - Outbreak Pt 1
*Day 5 - September 27: Supernatural: Monstrous: After Midnight
*Day 6 - September 28: Aftermath: Monstrous: After Midnight
*Day 8 - September 30: Friends and Family: Wicked Ones

Yes, I know we're missing Days 1, 4, and 7 (Fall or Proposal, Celebration or Outside POV, and Downtime or Memories, respectively), but I'm afraid we're striking out on them. Or I am. [personal profile] katsuko might have some ideas that she hasn't shared.

But also yes, there will be three new parts of Monstrous: After Midnight coming out that week. That ought to make some people's days.

And now, it's time for me to go to bed. 5:30 comes awfully early. Good night, all!

Irma, Pt 3

Monday, 11 September 2017 08:41 pm
apollymi: Jensen playing with the homemade monsters,  text reads "I am sane-ish" (Losers**Jensen: Sane-ish)
So, bear with me here: I'm typing this out on my phone. Our power is completely out. It's been out since around 3:30 or 4:00 this afternoon. At this point, I'm not hopeful that it will be back on before tomorrow sometime.

We had warm Spaghetti-Os before the power went off and cold baked beans after we lost it.

Luci has been incredibly clingy, even for her, since the power went out, right next to one or both of us, especially when the wind picks up again. Given that that keeps happening pretty frequently, it should probably be no surprise that she's been right here as much as she can. Boo has spent the entire day under the bed, so no surprises there.

It amuses me a little that Roswell has lost power, but where Mum lives in Albany only lost water for an hour or so. She got hit with more of the wind and rain than we did, but we're the ones who have been without power. Of course the Atlanta area is woefully underprepared for a tropical storm, so there is a that.

Sadly, this does mean that I didn't get a lot written today. Mostly I did some editing before the power went off, and I'll be counting this entry towards my words for the day.

[personal profile] katsuko had today off IKEA for the weather, but apparently they're expecting people to go in tomorrow. I'm... not happy about this. MARTA is still down, as is Uber, and a lot of roads have debris and standing water on them. I haven't heard how the waterways are looking, but I imagine that the Chattahoochee is up significantly, given the amount of rain we've had so far.

And it's no surprise that Mirko will be open tomorrow and that she is expected to go in or risk losing her job... and I think she wants to quit on her own terms.

And that's about it for me. Later.

Irma, Pt 2

Sunday, 10 September 2017 11:02 pm
apollymi: Eliot, Parker, and Hardison walking, text reads OT3 (OT3: Eliot/Parker/Hardison)
So around noon, I finally got a text that GSU will be closed on Monday. Around 4:00 in the afternoon, I got another text, that GSU will also be closed on Tuesday. Since I have three doctors' appointments on Friday and will not be at work at all, that means -- if nothing else changes -- that I will have a two day work week next week. Monday and Tuesday, the university will be closed for Irma, (if nothing changes) I will work Wednesday and Thursday, and then I will be going to the gynecologist (first for a saline ultrasound and then for an appointment) and my regular general doctor.

I'm keeping in contact with all of my Florida friends and former coworkers, making sure they're all okay. So far, so good, on that front.

I overdrafted the bank account getting supplies in case the power goes out. We bought the literal last bottle of water in the grocery store; we did use the Brita water filter to get some extra water set aside, basically by filling every reusable container we had in the house with filtered water. We've got food that doesn't have to be heated. I've charged up the battery pack for the mobile phones. I've got one flashlight charged up, and the other is on the charger. I did, however, forget to buy D sized batteries for the Maglight flashlight. I have an extra flashlight somewhere in the car, but it's pretty crappy and is only for emergencies.

Things I need to get in case this ever happens again: a new crank flashlight like I used to use for camping, a decent first aid kit, more empty bottles that we can use for water, and I'm sure a few other things that I'm not thinking of right now. I still haven't purchased an Uninterrupted Power Supply for the laptops, but it's on my list of things to eventually get, when money permits. If money ever permits.

If I'd known we were going to have at least one extra day at home, I would have found the money somewhere to get the roach treatment. I would rather do it when one of us will be here, so that we can sweep up the corpses before the kitties get into them.

And the Paxil is starting to kick in, so I'm getting tired, despite all the wind and noise outside. I'm going to try to throw myself at my bed and see if maybe sleep will happened. It's a hope anyway.

So long, my freaky darlings. Stay safe!

apollymi: Zack facing away, text reads "So don't judge me by my failures, only by my dreams" (FF7**Zack: Judge me only by my dreams)
This is going to be a really quick post, since I keep drifting off to sleep here on the couch instead of writing, like I should be. In fact, writing all weekend was my original intention, but that just didn't happen.

It didn't happen because so much of m attention has been on Hurricane Irma, trying to track its progress, trying to see where it's going and if it's still going to come near or through Atlanta. Right now, it looks like we're only going to get the outer edges of it, and that will still mean some pretty nasty wind and rain.

Still no news on if Georgia State will be closing for the weather. Almost all the counties around Metro Atlanta are closing their schools, including the universities. But the ones within Metro Atlanta are still waffling on the matter, including GSU. So who knows? I might have work on Monday. I might not. At least [personal profile] katsuko is off at IKEA, though that's because it's a regular day off for her, not for Irma.

And as I keep up with the news coming out of Florida, I have to sigh. At least Florida State has already closed and gone down to essential personnel only. If I was still there, I probably would have already packed up [personal profile] katsuko and the kitties and come to Grandmother's, but at least I would have known my job gives a damn about my life and safety. None of this "we're not closing for a little wind and rain" nonsense. For all my issues with it, I can at least say FSU gave a damn about its staff and students, and there are a lot of days where I honest to all the gods miss it.

But there's nothing to be done for that right now. What I am going to do is take myself to bed.

So long, my freaky darlings. Sleep well.

I'm awake

apollymi: Stitch holding his head in pain, no text (L&S**Stitch: Headache)
I'm so freaking tired, but I'm working towards getting everything finished up on various things, mainly After Midnight. I finished a Faraday part and a Teddy part today, and now I just need to finish up the Vasquez section I'm working on. Then I can move on to an Emma part. And after that, I think there's just the epilogue, though that might be multiple section long (and just all put together into one really long epilogue).

In addition to the bits I'm working on, [personal profile] katsuko just finished a Red Harvest chapter. She's working on a Sam chapter to come after it. I'm not sure, but we're going to be good to go for Mag7 week at the end of the month.

Now if I can just make fucking Wicked Ones talk to me... But nooooooo... Those boys are fucking stubborn as hell. They would rather do literally anything else in the world besides talk to me... or each other. I'm still going to give it a go this weekend, see if I can make something happen. I'm planning on releasing a chapter for Mag7 week, after all, the last finished chapter I have in reserve.

I'm going to give working on Resurrectionist a go as well. I know I'm going to be working on Shelter and Uncollared, because those are the two that are currently working for me. As for Shelter, I'm getting words done on both the regular verse and the modern femme Faraday verse. Oddly, the Worst Case Scenarios have chilled the fuck out finally, so that's good. If working on them will get me words, though, I might revisit them a bit.

I'm so tired and so out of it, that I keep forgetting what day of the week it is. I think it's Friday. I hope it's Friday. I'm honestly looking forward to my three doctors' appointments next Friday, because maybe they can tell me some of what's been going on with my body and all. Or at least get me one step closer to that goal. I'll take one step closer at this point.

So, yeah, I'm exhausted, so I'm going to go the hell to bed. Good night, all.

Something quick

apollymi: Hicks' face, faded icon, text reads "If in doubt, NUKE IT" (Aliens**Hicks: Nuke the site from orbit)
I'm honestly not sure what to say for myself for today. It was a day. I went to work. I didn't kill anyone while I was there. Honestly, the thought only occurred a time or two... and weirdly, not about testers. Sometimes boss lady just plucks my last nerve.

I had to take a Flexaril last night, and it left me all... "drifty" during the day today. So I'm going to avoid that today. It was nice not having to feel all stiff and tense and uncomfortable during the day, but being awake for the day is much, much better.

And I wrote on After Midnight. I'm actually really proud of what I wrote on After Midnight. It's some quality stuff. Creepy, but quality.

And I think that's about all I have to really say for myself. Later, all!

Follow-up

Wednesday, 6 September 2017 10:08 pm
apollymi: Ryou holding Thief King Bakura, text reads "Our Farewell" (YGO**Bakura/Ryou: Our Farewell)
I did the gynecologist visit today. That was... a trial. I think that maybe that's the best word for it: a trial. I got there at 9:30 and waited a bit before I was taken back. Once I showed the nurse my calendar of my periods, she immediately whisked me back for a trans-vaginal ultrasound. This technician was a lot better than the one in Tallahassee, who left me feeling like well churned butter. I got to the room and sat and waited... and waited... and waited... until eventually I got to see the doctor. She was good, if a bit abrupt. I felt like I barely started talking a few times before she was talking over me. I ended up having to have three uterine biopsies done, and I have an appointment for a saline ultrasound set for next Friday morning. So I now have two doctors' appointments on Friday. I'm going to have to take the whole day from my sick leave.

So the biopsies are, in the doctor's words, in part to "rule out cancer or pre-cancerous growths". Points to her for being honest, but I also didn't need the Big C word in my head. I also found out that my first Tallahassee gynecologist didn't do this job right as far as diagnosing whatever's wrong with me. He should have done more investigating, rather than listening to my symptoms and deciding it was endometriosis. Also, apparently D&Cs are not the proper procedure for endometriosis. But then, what do you expect from a doctor more willing to do surgery than proscribe birth control?

Also my uterine walls are unusually thick. That's the rest of why she did the biopsies.

And then I got on the train and went to work and was uncomfortable the rest of the day. I'm still uncomfortable. So sad.

But I've taken a Flexaril, and I'm probably not long to be awake, so I'm gonna cut this entry off here. Good night, all.

apollymi: Duo, Usagi, and Heero with grunge border, text reads "OT3" (OT3: Duo/Usagi/Heero (grunge))
Oh my gods, Luci! The very last thing you need is any kind of coffee -- but you especially don't need espresso! You're hyper enough as it is! Coffee and you would be a horrible combination!

So... I opened for Glynda this morning. I feel sort of punch drunk, because so many early mornings. The only real advantage of it is that the sun isn't up yet, so it's not in my face when I'm walking the last block, where there are no tall buildings to block the sun. So I did work for Glynda, and she was not in at all. It took LaTrease a while, but she managed to get in touch with her. She'll be in tomorrow, which is good, but that's the only thing we've got.

And it's good that she'll be back tomorrow, since tomorrow is... my gynecologist appointment! (Yay!) It's scheduled at 9:30 in the morning (because for some reason LaTrease wants me to try to get morning appointments) until... when it's done? I know they've got me scheduled for an ultrasound and who knows what else. So there's that.

And yeah, that's about it. I think it's time for me to go crash into my bed. Good night, all.
apollymi: Bakura and Kaiba fanart, black & purple background, text reads "We'll make something out of nothing" (YGO**Bakura/Kaiba: Something out of not)
What I would like to know is where the hell my long weekend went? I know Friday, we were fairly productive, going up to the outlet stores. We ate at Chow Baby in Alpharetta. I got the gross stomach Friday night, but [personal profile] katsuko was sick all day Saturday. It cut into our apartment hunting, and yeah, we did come back to Roswell and try to sleep some of it off. Yesterday, we went to see Atomic Blonde, though I think that was about the bulk of what we did, not counting the sheer number of Google reviews I left on places. Because, yeah, I left enough Google reviews yesterday to get my needed word count. So, that was a something.

Today was spent returning the things we bought on Friday. I'm a little sad, because I found a purse I really liked and I had a pair of jeans that fit well, and I had to return them. We also tried to sell some DVDs, which didn't pan out, and some games, which only netted us $4. All in all, not a great day.

To cap off the day, I got a phone call from Glynda, in tears, asking if I could open for her one more day, tomorrow. I'm not sure I got even close to all the story, but I gathered she couldn't get a hold of LaTrease and she had some bruised/cracked ribs and some other kind of injury that meant she was going to be delayed or wouldn't be able to come in at all tomorrow. Since her husband is a son of a bitch, I have some suspicions.

But I'm going to be there at 7:15 to open again, just like I did all last week. I was actually sort of excited to be done with that, but I guess that's what I get for being too excited too early, huh?

At least [personal profile] katsuko and I are both feeling approximately 80% better today. Well, she's feeling better, but I'm still crapping out everything I have ever eaten.

We did go see Atomic Blonde today, and I think we both enjoyed it. I kind of guess the twist about halfway through the movie, and that's all right. I don't think it was meant to be a thought inspiring movie or anything.

We have to spend some of our tomorrow cleaning up, in case our house is selected for the inspection that scheduled to go on tomorrow. The rest of our tomorrow includes taking back a lot of the stuff we bought Friday, including both of our new purses and new jeans. Rent is getting way too close and all that jazz.

And now I think it's time to admit defeat and go the hell to bed. Good night, all.

Not so busy

apollymi: Zack holding Cloud, doujinshi art, text reads "Dream of me" (FF7**Zack/Cloud: Dream of me)
Today wasn't nearly as busy as we had intended for it to be. For starters, both [personal profile] katsuko and I got sick off the food at Chow Baby last night. It made for a pretty miserable day.

We did attempt to have lunch with Mum and Grandmother today. I managed to choke down some food, but unfortunately, [personal profile] katsuko couldn't even get plain white rice or cabbage to stay down. We had some moderate success with crackers and Sprite, so I'm counting that as a tentative win. She's spent most of the afternoon and evening sleeping off the worst of it, so there is a that. Hopefully it'll be enough to let her feel better and for us to be able to enjoy the rest of this little vacation.

I keep drifting off as I try to write this, though, so I' going to call it a night. HOpefully tomorrow will be a better day all around than today was. I'm back at the point, where this feels like I'm drifting off all the time, so I'm going to throw myself at my bed. Maybe tomorrow will be a more pleasant thing than today.

Good night, all.

You ever have those dreams that are just so real that waking up and everything feels fake, and that's what I'm staring at right now: I went to sleep on the couch and dreamed that it was already tomorrow and we were walking around looking at apartment and I needed to get my ID back the office (because they always keep IDs when you're touring properties around here). It was just a small little silly dream, but it seemed so real at the time that, when I woke up, everything else seemed flat and fake afterwards.

Which segues nicely into our plans for tomorrow: looking at apartments in Stockbridge, McDonough, Fayetteville, and maybe Peachtree City. We're also meeting Mum for lunch in McDonough. [personal profile] desolate03 is in town for Dragon*Con, so we might meet with her at a later point in the weekend.

And yeah, that's about it.
