Recent events

Went to the wedding & reception of my friends S and K, who are part of a quad. Delightful and sweet. The brides wore white (K wore a vest and pants, S wore a corset and lace skirt) and cried a lot. The mastiff performed Best Dog duties. The husbands K and T held the rings and one of them helped their daughter, R, read the invocation to the West.

The OH had his 1-year cochlear implant checkup. Hard to believe it's been a whole year. It looks like the new software, which he was a "beta tester" for in September, and which helped him hear better in crowds, will be out within several months, for real this time. (A year ago, we were also being told "several months.") He could well hear better than me in crowds at that point.

Watched The Shawshank Redemption in the evening. I finished another crochet square.

Came back from my "retreat." They came and took away my auto-PAP. They'll supposedly download some info from it and then issue me a C-PAP.

Day two of my retreat. Was very sleepy all morning, but perked up in the afternoon. Visited the SF SPCA, which is where I adopted Selkie almost exactly 12 years ago. They have moved and have a much bigger and fancier facility now. They seem to specialize in shy and difficult cats.

In the evening, I did quite a lot of writing and plotting.

Day one of my retreat. Walked around Fisherman's Wharf and Ghirardelli Square, wrote some poetry, reorganized my beading supplies.

The OH and I watched Blade 2 in the morning.

In the evening, started a three day "retreat." I know, it might seem odd to go to Fisherman's Wharf for a retreat, but the point was not so much to be cut off from all people/activities, but to have several days where I didn't have to interact with people if I didn't want to.

I loved it. It did me a world of good.
