The bestie and I took a road trip to Columbia yesterday to see Tegan and Sara. I got to go to a couple of my favorite local places, which was fun. I haven’t been to Columbia just to hang out in quite some time.

Tegan and Sara were great, but the openers were really bad, and I was pretty miserable for a while. I picked what I thought were sensible shoes, but not so much, and I almost cried from how badly my feet hurt by the end of the night.

But it was all worth it because the bestie was so happy (it was her birthday present), and they played Monday, Monday, Monday, which they haven’t done in a very long time.

how is it already sunday?

  1. How is the weekend almost over?  Friday night I was in bed by 10 pm and I slept for ten hours. It was glorious. It would have been longer, but Saturday morning I took Jax to meet up with his dad at the comic book store for Free Comic Book Day.  I stood in a line for almost an hour so my kid could get some crappy free comics with his dad and feel cool. Parenting win. 
  2. I’m so over wearing the compression garment. It’s driving me fucking crazy. And I’m way ready to start wearing a bra again. Oh and I’m ready to run.  I’m also ready to get back to yoga. Recovering from surgery sucks.  If my plastic surgeon recommends another fat grafting I think I’m going to say no. Fuck this shit.  Besides, I’m running out of fat.  Okay, I’m done whining now.
  3. The boobs are still looking quite excellent, btw.  Looks like this round of fat grafting was a success.  Cleavage is the one good thing I got from breast cancer. 
  4. Last week I was using my space heater at the office, and today I’m bitching because it’s a touch too hot. I get like a week of weather I like per year.  At least it’s almost warm enough to swim.
  5. Jackson won’t stop singing Let It Go. It’s both adorable and annoying. 
  6. The bestie and I are going to Columbia on Tuesday night to see Tegan & Sara for her b-day. So excited! I want to go to Trops and Flat Branch. 
  7. Now I’m off to swallow 6 pills of Methotrexate and 1 folic acid. I don’t want to, but my right knee is swollen to the point where walking is difficult, so I guess it’s time to get back to it. 

friday five

  1. I saw my rheumatologist the other day, and he wants me to start on the injectable Methotrexate to see if that works better than the pills.  If not, then I’ll go back on Enbrel at my follow up appointment in six weeks. 
  2. My lymphedema has been acting up, so I ordered a replacement compression sleeve today.  It’s super cute.  It has stars on it.  Here.
  3. I’m taking my bestie to go see Tegan & Sara (for her birthday) on 5/6 in Columbia. I’m so excited to see them again.  Plus, I love the venue.  I went to a ton of shows at The Blue Note when I was in college. 
  4. I’m seeing the other bestie tonight to go swim suit and lingerie shopping. I can’t believe she’s finally getting married in a few weeks.  I’m looking forward to a girls night with her. I haven’t seen her in a while.
  5. I’m almost finished with my 13th book of the year.  I’m currently reading The Waiting by Joe Hart.

I can’t stop listening to this song.  First of all, it’s a good song.  Second of all, it reminds me so much of how I felt last summer.

I love Tegan and Sara so much.  I’m way excited for the concert.  It’s next weekend!  I have been waiting to see them for years.
