    What Good Thing Happened To You Today (Continued)

    I made a good friend, who is down for a number or reasons, laugh several times.

    It seems the worst of this headache cycle has ended-good riddance to it. I will be missing no Dawes shows.

    I decided to bite the bullet and get the infusions, if necessary, even if it means I miss Dawes.

    2018 Christmas Card Exchange Thread

    Another Christmas card traversed the Atlantic and made its way to my mailbox today. My vision is all screwy and I can't read the member's name. It's twelve hours later and I'm still laughing because I look at the signature and I see: uwiththatfly. I'm serious. (I would speak no lie about the Fly) It's hysterical. I can read the member's real name, which has a larger signature. I'm not sure if it's cool to say this person's real name so A: Thanks for the card with the three kings on the front of it. Once again, the timing was perfect because I've been chuckling about this all day long. The news was very sad here today. I needed to laugh. Many thanks. uwiththatfly? Lol. It's priceless. I'll never forget this day. I think I saved the email with the list of members' addresses. I've decided to slowly send something to everyone as I'm able. Thanks again to all of you and peace for every person anywhere-no matter.

    The Mood Thread (Reboot)

    I'm angry with the bishops of my church for not finally holding anyone who has ever abused a child accountable. I'm tired of crying because I don't want to go to mass. He had nothing to do with any of it but I still don't want to go and it hurts.

    The Mood Thread (Reboot)

    I'm angry at both sides of my government. I'm thoroughly disgusted that any of them are allowed to fly home with no resolution to our current crisis. I'm scared from just reading that the oceans are warming at a rate which is 40% higher than scientists previously thought.

    I got cards from pollyanna and padawanbeck84 today. Thank you. Extra thanks for the nice notes you included. Tomorrow is the last Sunday of Christmas (for me). The timing was perfect. Thanks again to everyone else. It was not expected and a pleasant surprise.

    What concert are you seeing next?

    I'm hoping and praying they tour America and book a gig in Chicago that is not Lollapalooza. (too many people for this graying Zootopian)

    What concert are you seeing next?

    How did the presale go for you? They sold very well in Chicago. I'll be fine with waiting to get a ticket or two, but all the good seats are gone.

    I'm thankful prayers do get answered because they found Jayme Closs alive.

    What Good Thing Happened To You Today (Continued)

    I keep trying to imagine how you can possibly store all these books and stickers and things you mention. I realize the books are on loan but they must go somewhere. I've been trying to move into a different apartment for six months. The manager of my building has not been helpful. We had what turned into a confrontation. I hate arguing in person. We were going at it when I finally looked at her and asked, "Why are we fighting?". She said she did not know and asked me to close the office door. (very nosy people in my building) We talked. It turns out her dog died a couple days after mine did. Her sister has pancreatic cancer. Her aunt has stomach cancer. Between her challenges and my head hurting so much-each of us was reacting to stress. Neither of us wanted to cause the other harm. We resolved our differences. I now have until March 15 to move into my new apartment. It's a huge burden off my shoulders. We stopped fighting and brokered peace-which is what I wanted but did not know how to do. My current apartment faces due North and never gets sunlight. When I open the door to the new apartment, the living room is flooded with direct sunlight. My new bedroom looks to the West and I can finally see the Sun setting again-even when it's too cold to go outside and watch it. Woo Hoo.

    Last night, I could hear Lake Michigan roaring from blocks away. I endured the weather to go see. It was very rough. I got soaked watching the waves, which were huge. I love watching the waves of winter. Today, I'm having hot cocoa and staying inside because it's nasty outside. It's a great day to take down my Christmas tree and put away the chreche. .
