Today I am...

Today I am:
One month clean from Vicodin, and passed the rebound pain.
Six years clean from Benzodiazepines and anti-psychotics
I've been growing out my hair since November of 2009
My cat, Delilah, turns nine years old today
My parents have three showings for their house today
It's 48* F in Denver
I still love living here
I am extremely excited to watch the first Doctor Who episode of the new season!

Grapefruit is such a pain in the ass to prepare for eating...but they are SO worth it! Every year around Christmas time a box of grapefruit would arrive at our house. My paternal grandmother, Nonnie, would have a box sent to each of her kids and their families.  It was a marker than Christmas was coming very soon, better be extra good, cos Santa is watching. ;) And oh god they tasted SO good!  They looked so pretty. Just looking at them would make my mouth water! I loved them.

Nonnie died in January of 2000, and I can count on one hand the number of times I have eaten grapefruit since then. I don't know why I stopped eating them. it wasn't a conscious decision. Last week I was in the grocery store and I walked past the display of grapefruit and suddenly I wanted one more than anything I have ever wanted before. I bought two, and hoped they would be as good as I remember. I just ate one...
Oh god so good! That's good to know! I will definitely be adding grapefruit to my diet!

Rumours of my death have been greatly exaggerated

Okay, I know it looks like I have abandoned my blog, or died and left it alone. Neither of those things is true. Obviously I am still alive, or a very talented ghost. ;) I have, however been sick. My body decided that I needed an entire winter of being ill, this has not happened for a few years. I have managed to stay out of the hospital, though and that makes it not so bad.  At the moment I have no voice, not even a squeak. I am extremely annoyed by this! I'm a talker, I talk all the time, even when I am the only one here. Yeah...not today I don't! Yuck!

Last Thursday...I wore Converse hi-tops for the first time in over a year! I was so happy SO happy! My feet/ankles/lower legs are finally not grossly swollen! It's been hard to pick shoes, but now it's because I have too many choices!
