Not that I ever post anymore, and not that anyone reads anymore, but a couple of friends did this so I figure why not. :)
1.What is your number one goal this year?
To finally get my butt in gear when it comes to selling my photos at craft fairs and such. I'm terrified.
2.What are you most grateful for?
To have finally found someone I am completely happy with and get to be with every day.
3.Are you content?
Mostly, yes. Which is still a new feeling for me after decades of depression and anxiety. (they're not gone, but they're much diminished.)
4.What is your best memory of last year?
I can't really think of anything specifically. Just any times I got to see far-flung friends who love me.
5.What was the last major accomplishment you had?
I went ahead and got surgery to sterilize myself. Even in the face of offer from Jim to get snipped (less risky, etc), I wanted it on my terms and on my body. I've always known I am not mother material. I am grateful I live where I am in a position to do what I need to ensure that I will not be one.
6.What possession could you not live without?
Hrm. Possession? Camera or computer I suppose.
7.Can people change?
Of course they can. Often things are so entrenched that the effort to change is not worth the expenditure, but that's a choice.
8.What is the last “good” thing you ate?
We made yummy homemade pizza last night. And I had some of it for lunch too. :)
9.What is your current favorite snack?
Ice cream. Always ice cream.
10.What made you smile today?
11.What’s your favorite accessory?
My 4th Doctor scarf.
12.What is making you mad?
The world makes me so angry every day. Racism, sexism, homophobia, willful ignorance, etc, etc, etc. Rage fatigue sets in easily.
13.What did you have for dinner today?
Well I already said what I had last night. Tonight the plan is some sort of pork chop dish and spaghetti squash.
14.What did you get done?
I haven't gotten a great deal done today. Tonight we need to do some major cleaning because our new sofa is coming Saturday.
15.Who last called you on the phone?
Probably the hospital. My friends and family know better than to call me. :)
17.What are you grateful for?
So this is different than what I am "most" grateful for? Um. Health, friends, financial security, employment?
18.The best part of today was ______________ .
19.My current favorite website is _________________.
I dunno if I have a "favorite". I use Facebook most. And loseit.com.
20.What was the hardest thing you’re dealing with?
21.Today I wish I had more _________________.
Strength and energy.
22.Tomorrow will be better because __________________
We might see friends, and I've been housebound for so long.
23.What made today unusual?
My days don't tend to be unusual. Um. I'm posting to LJ? That's unusual. :)
24.What are you looking for from life?
25.What is your favorite thing to drink?
Mountain Dew or root beer. Too bad I mostly gave up soda. :(
26.Today the temperature was ___________________.
Somewhere in the 20s. God I hate winter.
27.How much did you spend at the grocery store the last time you went?
It was last night, and it was about $90.
28.Tomorrow I will _________________________.
Put on grown-up clothes and see humans.
29.What was your last major purchase?
Besides my surgery? (3k out of pocket, ouch), our sofa that comes this weekend. :)
31.Who is the last person to tell you they loved you?
Jim before he left for work. Love that boy.
Made a big friends cut today. It's nothing personal, I just barely use this anymore, and any fandom stuff most folks have me on for would be public entries anyway, and so I just cut back to people I actually know in real life.
Wow I really never write here anymore do I? No energy for fandom, and no real desire to ramble on about life.
Anything anyone wants to know, that you might not already know from seeing my constant blathering on Facebook?
Life is going fairly well. Work stress is killing me at the moment but this too shall pass.
I have made peace, generally, with Paul's death and the guilt I worked through.
I have been spending a lot of time with local friends and learning to feel loved and like I belong.
I have lost almost 70lbs. Though it's much harder these days. I am the size I was in high school though, so...yay!
Making what has become a rare non-fandom post here just to say huzzah! I have hit 50lbs weight loss today. Still 20 or so more to go but it's a milestone and I'm feeling great. :)
Finally finished my Eleventh Hour icons, way later than I had hoped to. Darn life for getting in the way of my fandoming. :)
Credit is appreciated, altering is fine, blah blah enjoy 'em if you like 'em.
Includes a few from the season preview that came at the end of the ep, if you consider that a spoiler. ( Clicky for about 170 iconsCollapse )
Here's batch two of my sloooow icon-making. :)
As always, credit is lovely but not enforced. I forgot to say last time, but I don't care if you alter them or treat them as bases.
This icon making and staring at thousands of screencaps isn't helping with the whole Crushing on Amy thing. They just HAD to combine my weaknesses of Scottish accents and red hair, didn't they? :) ( 124 iconsCollapse )
