should get some sleep...

Kirsten gets her operation tomorrow. I would fret more, but it wouldn't do any good, and I'm not one for needless, ineffective worrying. Everything *will* go well. Our life *will* eventually return to something approximating pre-injury status for her... oh, and the insurance company *will* settle the lawsuit before we have to drag things into court. Frankly, Kirsten has a really good case, so they should settile ASAP if they want to save some money.

Planned a lot of plans for the perfect San Francisco day trip on Sunday with a friend in from out of town, but when I finally got up to see him, he looked very under the weather and was just not up for the city, so I spent the day with Kirsten on Telegraph Ave. in Berkeley. He'll be back in the area again, I'm sure... better a live dog than a dead lion.

Shame, really, as I planned a really great walking tour of Chinatown and the surrounding locale... I probably know more about San Francisco history than most tour guides. I even know where the affordable parking and where both the best and the least expensive dim sum can be found. The next person(s) I go to San Francisco with is/are going to have a very good time indeed...

Did a lot of aesthetic things around the house lately... got the bedroom in shape, installed a nifty new shower head (With lovely misting and massage, and without a low-flo adaptor. Showers were meant to be real... ) Also, have a few new additions for the back yard. Set up a place for the squirrels and birds to get food, got a rosemary bush, and generally spent time being teto all the plants, really.
Very tired... time to mooch some cuddles!

Kirsten is out of surgery...

Not sure whether she is awake again quite yet, but I called up the hospital and heard that Kirsten got out of surgery and is in the recovery room. She should be home soon...

(long breath)

Nice to know she's ok, seeing as how she's the most important person in my life and everything.

I am an extremely fortunate person to have been blessed with a relationship that is so strong with a person who is so good... one with no need for secrets or lies, one with a constant unspoken conversation and endless in-jokes, one where we can be loved for our whole selves, and not just for the part we feel it's safe to show "ordinary people."

So, looks like I get to spend the next week or two spending the holidays with her, getting her tea and snacks, watching cartoons and movies, cuddling, spoiling the cats, and basically smothering her with attention until she's sick of it. Maybe I'll even draw an anchor on her cast and start calling her Popeye... she's so cute when she's angry! ;->

Happy Thanksgiving, I guess...

sigh of relief.

I am an extremely fortunate person to have been blessed with a relationship that is so strong with a person who is so good... one with no need for secrets or lies, one with a level of communication that is so close, with endless shared moments and an endless supply of in-jokes, one where we can be loved for our whole selves, and not just for the part we feel it's safe to show "ordinary people."

So, looks like I get to spend most of the time between now and New Year's with her, getting her tea and snacks, watching cartoons and movies, cuddling, spoiling the cats, and basically smothering her with attention until she's sick of it.
