Okay, so some of you might remember how I wanted to move out of this city after the divorce, but never really got around to it because of Pea and the daycare issues and my anxiety issues and the apartments I was offered were never just right yadda yadda yadda...

Well, I got one offered yesterday and while I still might not get it, it's perfect. The place itself is amazing. Affordable, child friendly area, literally 5 mins from my mom, small town. It's ground level, has a small garden, pets are allowed. I can hardly stop singing its praises! I'll hopefully know in about a week whether I get it or not. Meanwhile I am in a complete tizzy!

I'm making lists of stuff I can do to make the move less stressful, making budgets, trying to anticipate all the people who need to know, all the changes that need to be made, who to call for what, Pea's daycare transport etc etc.


This could be the new start I've been longing for. I'm still living in the apartment I shared with my first ever partner. Everything we shared still screams at me from every surface, if I let myself dwell on it.

Only slight bummer is that if it happens, the move will take plays only days before Christmas. But since I am alone this year, not having Pea and probably going to my sister's, I don't think it could happen at a better time. Plus, if it happens in Pea's holiday from daycare, he'll have a few days to get used to living somewhere new before he has to start using the taxi service to get to daycare, which will probably be intimidating for him, even though I'll probably tag along the first few times.

But OMG I want this to happen so bad, even while I'm shaking with anxiety over it already. It's going to happen. I know it. FINGERS CROSSED!

Okay, my kid is just too amazing sometimes!!

ladydrace: (HAPPY BIRTHDAY!)
Okay, maybe not that big, but very bad. Bad as in AWESOME!

Turning 30 was a breeze. Move over Dr. Bashir! No midlife crisis going on here!

Only real crisis was that turning a sharp corner like that kinda raises expectations in the family of some sort of celebration. Which I hate. But I did invite my siblings to my mom's house for lunch and coffee, and it turned out really nice, even though only one of my sisters showed up. The other had sick kids, and while it was sad that she couldn't make it, it actually ended up making it less stressful for me.

So I had fun and I ended up taking home 3 times as much food as I planned. I will be living off (glorious, delicious, amazing) leftovers for at least a week. Nom nom nom nom.

So real life celebration was good. But it was nothing - NOTHING compared to the beauty that met me online!

[ profile] xiilnek  made me this, which made me squeal and laugh and squeal some more!

[ profile] kerry_louise  wrote me a Garak/Bashir fic which was just perfect! I still flail uncontrollably over it!

[ profile] masteroth  made me a totally adorable post and utterly squee-worthy manip!

[ profile] tli  and [ profile] martiya_khvar both sent me awesome presents in the mail, and if I wasn't so freakishly tired, I would totally set up a whole arrangement of my beautiful gifts and take pictures of their awesomeness! But alas, party preparations and socializing has taken its toll on me.

Other than that, there has been a steady flow of well wishing from all over the web. Emails, Twitter, Facebook and places I'd even forgotten I used to go. I was on cloud nine every time I logged on!
I hope I haven't forgotten anyone, but I would like to thank you all for making my 30th birthday totally and amazingly awesome!

OMG OMG! I'm so happy!

Tonight, for the first time, Pea called for me! His little voice called "Mommy?" and I answered: "Yes?" and when I came to see what he wanted, he smiled and did a little dance. (Aaww) This is such a big thing, I can't even begin to describe it!

It's not like he hasn't called me mommy before, but usually it's more of a "look, it's mommy!" sentiment. Actually calling for me like this is an absolute first and it's one of the things I was most looking forward to when I first decided to have a child.

I know this is probably a little ridiculous, but all I can think right now is...

Oh, sweet baby jesus on a cracker, I'VE ACTUALLY WON SOMETHING!!

I joined the First Official Birthday Challenge at [ profile] sabriel_bday and I actually won! People actually voted for my fic! All right, so there were only 4 entries, but still! I WON! HOLY MOTHER OF JEFFERSON DAVIES, I WON!!

I'm excited. Can you tell??


I'll be posting the fic here shortly!

Oh my goddddddd....

Go see it! YOU HAVE TO! (NSFW, btw...)

First of all, I totally forgot I asked for fic OR art, so opening the link and seeing... this was quite the shocker. And once I was doing flailing and choking on my own spit I went on and wrote what I suspect will be a mildly embarrassing comment to who ever the fantastically dirty soul was who came up with this.


Secret Santa, who ever you are:

Let me love you!

It's midnight. I'm about to go to bed, when suddenly there's a shuffling behind me. Pea is up, but he doesn't come to me. Instead he goes straight for the cup of water we always have out for him on the coffee table. I get a bleary announcement of: "thirsty" before he gulps down the entire cup and goes straight back to bed. He's out again instantly.

Honestly, how many kids would do that when they could just yell for mommy to get them some water? I am so proud of my independent little man right now, I swear I could cry...

Moments like these are what makes it all worth while. :o)

Sweet, merciful gods above... HOW CAN THIS MAN BE SO BEAUTIFUL!?!?!

Thank you, Supernatural. Thank you for making me aware of all these drop-dead gorgeous people.

Watch it! It's hot under here! )

Started my Dean/Cas secret santa assignment today. Whacked out 1200 words in no time at all. I fear that it might end up being quite long. :oS

My PC seems to be working still. I'm cautiously putting things onto the harddrive. Hanging on to my backup discs just in case, though. Also, I'm keeping my writing on a flash drive at all times. Losing my fic would be unacceptable.

In other news, I think I'm developing a serious crush on Richard Speight jr. And not only that, Gabriel is eating my brain. He tells me all sorts of weird things. One of these days I fear he and Garak will meet up in my brain and either become best buddies or mortal enemies. The crossover fic will be inevitable and epic. *nods*

Also, damn, I need some SPN icons. Badly.

No spoilers. Just... yes. Yes, this is how it's done! I CANNOT FIND A SINGLE THING NOT TO LIKE ABOUT THIS EPISODE! *flails happily*
ladydrace: (OMG naked tailor!)
Excuse me for a moment, while I squee my head off.

*runs around, flailing arms and generally acts like a complete ninny*

Okay, I'm good now.
ladydrace: (Aaaawwww)
No spoiler, but I just watched episode 9x04. And my god, I need tissues. The love is like... I don't have words. But I'm seriously crying my eyes out here. It's so beautiful. And I don't even ship it.

Thank you, NCIS. Thank you.
ladydrace: (Sid Is Hot)

I mean, just look at those peepers! My god! )
