... everyone over at LJ seems to be planning to move to Dreamwidth wholesale on account of Russia. I'm always the last to know (to be fair, I've been so up to my ears in Lifeā„¢ that I wouldn't have noticed if a giant foot had come down and mashed LiveJournal flat, a la Monty Python). It's been long enough that my old posts use my "my kids are under 21" nicknames.

So I'm attempting to jumpstart my DW posts. What's new?

Um... Julie had an exploding appendix and was saved by 1) her boyfriend Joe, who got her to the hospital despite her "nah, it's just... OW... it's just..." demurs; 2) a good surgeon who got her 'gnarly appendix" out and cleaned up the mess it was attempting to leave behind and 3) the Affordable Care Act, so that she is likely not to be drowned in debt while she's looking for a job.

After Julie was back on her feet again, Joe proposed. So there's that.

Becca is taking a semester off from college to 1) earn money to 2) go to Europe for a couple of months. Until she gets some traveling in she will not be able to hunker down and do the last two years of her undergraduate degree, so it seemed sensible. In the meantime, she's living with us, which is, predictably, both heaven and hell.

I am Operations Manager at a small museum in San Francisco with all the predictable joys and woes of a small non-profit organization. From day to day it's a roller-coaster ride.

Emily is still a dog. Creakier than she used to be, but still a dog.

What's up with you?

Raising a three-going-on-four year old. Not much room for anything else aside from work (it took three months to finish my short Yuletide assignment).

One long day at a time, that's how.

Cool enough to recently ask me, "Wolves blow down houses only in stories?"

I'm over here much as I am over there -- I've been mirroring my LJ here since DW started.

*sigh* Oh, lordy. Rob's on his fourth year of fighting cancer. I am out of work and will remain out of work because we have to drive to Rochester every week (90 miles away) for treatment. Well, perhaps freelance work on the side. I had been trying to train in marketing, but I had a bad experience with my last gig. I am now toying with the idea of trying to revive my fiction writing career. Not that I ever made a lot of money at it.

I'm rather at loose ends, in other words.
