Getting Cards Against Humanity at the family Hanukkah party, organizing a game of it, and getting my Granny to say "Daniel Radcliff's delicious asshole"

Somehow my mother accidentally ordered a new set of headphones for me that were in our amazon cart that I was looking at because a part of mine broke a bit (had it for a few months, it has this rotating thing that snapped) and I've been surviving it with the power of tape.

I suspect they were actually an x-mas present that somehow ended up in the box of the charger cables I ordered..oops.

Our couch arrived.. it is bigger than expected but it is the most comfy couch ever. Granted we have to lay a sheet over it because we're pet people and like to sit with the Goblin.

But it's professionally slipcovered and we have two sets so we can wash too.

I received a lovely star wars hoodie this morning from a dear friend and it fits and it's the perfect weight for here, heavy enough for chilly movie theaters and light enough for brisk walks with the pup, who has a pink star wars collar too! And I am seeing the movie either tonight or tomorrow. Not in Imax like we originally planned (just not possible to get up there around christmas and time it with other errands!) But we'll be seeing it.. Then when dad gets back, maybe imax!

Saw Star Wars yesterday with my kids and Serrest. Brother saw is earlier, so now we can talk about it over the multi-holiday (mostly x-mas this year) dinner.

Alcohol-filled little chocolates from a guildmember. Utterly thoughtful, utterly unnecessary.

I did some contract work and used part of the proceeds to buy myself a Fitbit. Time to get in shape!

Mayan Cocoa tea latte. Tried something new with this round of tea ordering, success. Warm and spicy with a smooth chocolate flavor. 1 tbsp sugar, half a cup of 2% milk.

I got good news today. Granted, the very long plan is still..a very long plan. However march 1st I will have a 4hr dental surgery to deal with some very immediate concerns that are very important and the cost is doable. Largely because my dentist is amazingly compassionate and has offered to knock off almost 2k off the price tag because they all felt very strongly that I was the kind of person to do something that generous for. The staff assisting is volunteering their own time.

Date is march 1st, we're making payments until then so it will be paid in full by the time I get there.

4 HOURS! Bugger that unless they were knocking me out LOL. I am glad you found a good dentist though, only just got an appt myself for dental here. The proper dentist is full and can take no more patients, so the students will be doing mine. They take 4 times as long because they are still training, but it's free so I cannot complain.

We talked about it but between the cost and the fact that I have had teeth pulled before that I didn't feel it (super numbing) and her desire for me to be able to let her know if something 'feels wrong'. She felt it was safer and wiser for fitting to keep me lucid enough to tell her if it's really wrong.

Honestly considering how badly I need it (let it be said that auto-immune drugs don't kid around with the damage they do to your body later) and all that.. I am OK with 4 hours of misery. I'd do 8 at this point just to get this dealt with. I'm tough and it will suck a lot.. but it needs to happen.
