  2. 4-Month Sleeversary

    Okay - after a mental meltdown earlier in the week, overall life is good.

    I started a new p/t job which I love, but getting to/from is a hassle. I had to learn the public transportation system, and one day the bus was running late like 25 minutes, so I started walking back home to get in my car and guess what?

  5. 3-Month Sleevesary

    Hola! from Santa Fe, New Mexico

    We left L.A. on Saturday and are Texas bound. We decided to make a road trip out of my move, and it has been a ton of fun thus far.

    As today marks my 3-months post op, I wanted just to update everyone and let you know where I am. These past few days on the road has taught me some real good lessons, one of them is that I order food with my eyes. It has been a little inside joke between my partner and me.
