I'm needing to get to bed, but I have been running for the last couple of days, and have finally been able to wind down a bit. Still not quite ready for bed, but hopefully soon.

My dad called us last night, since I'd told him to call me when he was anxious or depressed over this stuff with my mom, and we had a bit of a chat. Later, we went and saw Terminator Salvation, which was a nice distraction for me.

This morning's call from my dad was a lot better, and he's thinking of volunteering somewhere, so he can have something else to focus on right now. After, I got my act together enough to spring for breakfast pastries, and then I went and got my hair colored. I really like how it turned out, but I swear my stylist is a Ferengi. She upsells me all the time, and talks to me about what a good deal she is giving me, with a 'special discount'.

But man, my hair looks great.

Once my hair was done, I headed back home and picked up Lar and Ev for a small hike. I think we did 2.5 - 3 miles (it was about an hour and fifteen minutes) around some of the Feral Squirrel Park trails (okay, the Farrel McWhirter Park trails) It's pretty flat-- maybe 250 ft during the route--and pretty shaded, except for where the perimeter trail goes under the power lines. So it was a really nice outing before the main heat of the day.

Then it was lunch and shopping: new jeans for ev and groceries for the family; I got home in time to start dinner, too.

At that point, I said enough. I grabbed a soda and mindlessly played video games until it was time to eat; dinner was then followed by "Mystery, Alaska".

I'm still coughing because my allergies still haven't settled down yet; I'm hoping that my nose will stop running soon, so I'll be able to breathe again.

Needless to say, I am wiped.

My husband is reading Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and occasionally cackling with glee. Who knew that all the classic romance needed was the addition of some ultraviolent zombie mayhem to widen its appeal?

The quick trip down to see my folks went well. My brother and his family came down in the late Afternoon on Saturday, so we all could visit mom together. He'd just been down to see her for Mother's day, and I had been down last month, but she's really not doing very well. I'm not going to be all emo today, but it's very tough to see her.

Sunday we decided to head back early, in part because the cottonwood was playing havoc with Ev and my allergies, so we left after we saw mom again and took Dad out to breakfast. On the way home, we took a detour to Beacon Rock and hiked up it, which was cool. Lar and I had climbed it every year when we lived in Vancouver, Wa, and I had climbed it one summer with my folks, my brother, and my cousin as part of a family vacation (telling my mom all the time 'oh, the top is just around the corner, I'm sure') so it was very nostalgic for me. And it was nice to get out of the car for a bit and do something active.

Today, though, I am dragging. My allergies haven't settled back down yet (and may not for a bit), and the trip wiped me emotionally as well as the normal travel tired. I just have to survive this week, and then I get a holiday day. I am looking forward to it.

Dental woes

I am having a crown replaced, oh joy! First appointment was today, and I pat myself on the back for not needing any anti-anxiety meds beyond Nitrous. It left me wiped out at work today, and it turned out to be a very busy day as the month-end process finally finished. (And hey! It's only a week into the month. Go us!)

Fortunately, I have massage tonight. I wonder if she would mind if I simply fell asleep on the table?

Tomorrow I will do some of the VVC work, and the OTW stuff; My family is taking me to Star Trek for Mother's Day, so I won't see it until Sunday. I want to say "don't spoil me", but who am I kidding? I'll likely be spoiled at 30 minutes past midnight, if not before.

It hasn't been a bad day, just along one. The weekend was busy--ushering for the play friday night, vidding on Saturday, and Sunday was L's birthday, so we saw Wolverine--and I think I got to work more tired than I'd been when I'd left it on Friday. It was one of those more dull days too, where I couldn't think of anything interesting to do, so I had to do a lot of, uhm, grunt work instead.

(You know. Things like...documentation.)

Ev went to a new martial arts class, and we're thinking he can do it in addition to his aikido this summer; the dojo has a tournament coming up at the end of summer, and Ev really wants to participate--basically, he wants to spar with someone. He's he working on that ninja dream, which I think is a little better than the mad scientist one; at least this way, there's less of a chance of the total destruction of humanity through a genetic experiment gone wrong.

(Poor Carson Beckett. He wanted to be an evil genius, but his temperament was all wrong.)

Fannishly, I've been all about the vidding: getting my vid show together for VVC, finishing the club vivid vid, and posting the vids from Escapade. Still not done with this, as I have to contact vidders for the vids (oh, how I loathe and avoid that part of doing a vid show), but it's getting better. I still have a bunch of Fanlore stuff to do as well.

Maybe I can get some of that done tomorrow. I think I am going to find a short story to read, and head for bed.
