For the first time in far too long, my lack of posting has been due to being busy rather than being too tired. The first two weeks of the month I was working days, which meant both boss behind me and gearing up for the start of the semester. It would have been so much easier had professors not waited until the few days coming up to the spring semester to put in their course reserve requests. But there is also something satisfying about being busy like that. Or at least there is for me.

The big news here is that on Friday I went for my first doctor appointment in about four years. November's election results were the big impetus for me to try to remount the horse of "what exactly is wrong with me and can it be fixed?" I'd been dreading it for so long and still so pissed at the bint of a doctor I had the last time that once this appointment was over I felt such a weight lifted off my shoulders. I told her (a nurse practitioner) what had been going on, the last round of "oh you don't test for hypothyroidism you're just fat so lose some weight," ordered a lot of bloodwork, and in a few weeks I will have a formal physical. If I do turn up as hypo I may cheer and cry at the same time. But this time I am confident that if I read as "normal," she'll keep working with me to figure out what is wrong.

Last weekend siduri and I did our Candlemas/Imbolc rite and it was just good. G couldn't make it but we blessed her candles from the previous weekend of candle crafting and they are ready for her. Then yesterday I missed out on going to a demonstration downtown because I had to work. Somehow I am over 40 and never been to one. This year is probably going to change that.

In checking off stuff news: today I changed my bed sheets, did laundry, got the kitchen a little neater, finally booked the hotel for Paganicon (yes!), and stubbed my right little toe totes hard 40 minutes before coming to work. Doing all that stuff left me feeling tired but not drained. It's rare when I feel that way and this time I embraced it. When I get home tonight I'll tidy a little more and put out the bins for garbage and recyc in the morning. Gods please let me keep up this momentum.

Blogging will hopefully happen tomorrow, and I will say if it does.

Congrats on the doctor's appointment (I put mine off, so that is not condescending but literally like - you did the thing, the thing I also find hard to do, and that rocks). Hopefully they can get to the bottom of it in a constructive way (because the weight thing is just *so* unhelpful).

The Imbolc rite sounds really lovely. It's Lughnasadh here and I didn't end up doing anything for it :/ though I'm still getting back into the habit of Sabbats (it was a miracle I did anything for Midsummer). But woot for the candle blessing, and I hear you on demonstrations. I think this year might be my first for that too.

There definitely is something satisfying and enjoyable about being busy in a good way. I definitely enjoy the time I have that I can be free to do nothing, but I also like to be busy, as long as it's a good busy and not stressful busy.
