Last Week

Last week was a difficult week for me emotionally. I was stressed about
health and relationship issues, and it made me depressed and touchy. Luckily
I was surrounded by good people who were very patient with me, and
ultimately the week ended on a high note. I got to spend a lot of time with
mishiell last week, which was especially nice because I needed a
chance to reconnect with her.

Last Sunday was a really pleasant day. icespark and I slept in
ridiculously late and then we went out to Outback before meeting drakefenwick, Jobe, and elbanditorojo for a last-minute birthday Runebound
game night. We still didn't get to complete a game, but we did come a lot
closer than the last time we played. I hadn't expected to see Elbanditorojo
that weekend, so his unexpected freedom was an enjoyable surprise.

Last Monday I went to my first radiation oncologist appointment. The
appointment went well – Dr. Leagre was very reassuring, and was happy to
oblige my request to move my treatments to closer-to-home Methodist
Hospital. It meant switching radiation oncologists, but I like Dr. Yeh just
as much. After my appointment I headed to work. I had to work late since I
traded with Napl so I could go to the doctor's appt, so Monday night
Icespark and I skipped MUXing and went to bed relatively early.

Last Tuesday I went to another doctor's appointment to meet Dr. Yeh, my new
radiation oncologist. lildomino picked me up at work and brought
me to Methodist Hospital Radiation Therapy. I thought I'd just meet Dr. Yeh
and he'd give me the same rundown Dr. Leagre did, but while I was there he
had them CAT scan me as well in preparation for my radiation treatments. He
answered more of the questions I'd had, and although the appointment lasted
a lot longer than I'd planned, I felt like I got a lot accomplished in one

After work I went over to Mishiell's to spend the night with her for her
birthday Wednesday. Mishiell and I had dinner at Texas Roadhouse and then
stopped by Trader Joe's to pick up ingredients for breakfast. When we got
back to Mishiell's apartment we snuggled on the couch and watched Firefly
until we were both ready for bed.

Wednesday I had the day off for Mishiell's birthday, so we slept in and
Mishiell made breakfast. I had to run up to my urologist's so they could
take more blood, and then when I returned Mishiell napped while I watched
the History Channel's specials on end of the world scenarios – happy
birthday, Mishiell!

Wednesday night Mishiell and I met up with Tojo, and the three of us went to
see Mudkids, Flobots, and Matisyahu at the Murat Egyptian Room for
Mishiell's birthday. After the concert I headed off so Mishiell and Tojo
could have the night alone, and went over to LilDomino's to snuggle and fall
asleep with her to The Colbert Report.

Thursday night cassiopia drove in from Illinois to see me. She
was worried about her new tattoo, but she stopped in on the way to Indy and
her tattoo shop reassured her it was healing just fine. Cassiopia's visit
was a short one, but it was good to catch up with her since I didn't get to
see her for her important rites weekend. We snuggled and she spent the
night, and I get to see her again for Halloween.

Friday night after work I got back together with Mishiell for her birthday
weekend. We had dinner, and then started in on two days devoted to the Star
Trek Roleplaying Game
. I have to love a woman whose request for birthday
weekend activities includes role-playing Star Trek. *^_^* I had a great
time with her, not just for the role-playing, but also for the chance to
hang out with in an unhurried, non-sleepy setting.

Saturday Mishiell and slept in again and then went out to Le Peep for
breakfast. We hit the knit shop, so Mishiell could stock up on yarn.
Coincidently they were having a clearance sale, so Mishiell spent way too much, and then we headed home to role-play more Star Trek. We ordered in Jimmy Johns so we
didn't have to venture out, and spent the evening role-playing and

The weekend was just what I needed. Mishiell had backed off from me a bit
since I'd gotten sick, mostly so she didn't get in the way of everyone else
who was wanting to take care of me (I have an abundance of good fortunes!).
This coincided with some NRE on her part, which left me feeling a little
insecure. A weekend of snuggling and catching up was perfect for making me
feel better in a lot of ways. Love you, Mishiell!

I'm glad you got what you needed this weekend. :) It's always good to reconnect!

BTW, thanks for changing the formatting for me. It's making it a lot easier for me to read.

*hugs and kisses*

I'm glad, too! I'm feeling much better this week, even though I start radiation treatments tomorrow. *chuckle* Go figure!

And no problem about the formatting -- I asked around, and you're not the only one who finds the posts easier to read this way. Thanks for the suggestion!

*big hug and kiss and good healing*

Thanks much! I'll need them tomorrow when I get my radiation treatments. I'm thinking of taking the day off to see how my body reacts before going back to work.

OK, I'm pretty good with acronyms but I'm stumped by NRE

Non Romantic Energy???

Glad you've got a good doctor and they are taking good care of your body. Hugs, me

Re: NRE?
NRE: New Relationship Energy. I may have misinterpreted "giving me with space" as "distracted by the new boyfriend." The perils of crappy moods + low self-esteem. Either way, things seem better now.

Re: NRE?
NRE sometimes functions as a nice distraction. >B^) How have you been, cutey?

Re: concerts rock
I connected more with the Flobots, but Matisyahu was definitely cool. I might have to steal one of his albums from you.

Happy Birthday!
Hope you had a great birth "week"!

I get you with the being stressed about health issues. Jeez. *rolls eyes* I hope all goes well.

And YAY for watching Firefly. That is SO made of win. Our Firefly collection is on loan to my girlfriend and her hubby in Florida, and I'm missing it almost as much as I'm missing her. *wry grin*

And yay for NRE! Haven't had me some of that in a while, but then again, every time I kiss the hubby, I still get a little trill. *cheesy smile*

*grin* I eventually bought a second copy of the Firefly discs because I kept lending them to everyone, and then wanting to watch them. Now I have a private copy and a lending copy. *grin* Both are pretty well-worn. B^)

NRE is more fun when you're involved, but since my girlfriends have to deal with me when I'm in the midst of it, it's only fair that I have my turn on the "Hey -- remember me?" side...
