Had a pretty good day for the first time in the last couple weeks.
First part of the day was slow-going. Had a great jiu jitsu class. Learned some pretty handy techniques, and landed a really nifty submission I've never done before. It honestly made my day. And all with good friends. But one of the best parts: My leg injury didn't act up. At all! I tore the meniscus in my leg back in December, and am still on a wait list for surgery (isn't going very quick...), and it's usually driving me insane. Constantly in pain, randomly locking up or giving out, whenever it feels like it. It's felt pretty good the last few days though. Been able to train harder, and get through the days more comfortably, and without having to stop whatever I'm doing to crash somewhere because I'm walking around like a peg-legged pirate.
Made my way home, and made it a relaxed night. Just been sitting back and enjoying my feeling relaxed and happy for the first time in a while. No chaos occurred today. No pain other than a half torn off toenail. No fights, no tears, no emergency hospital or vet runs. Just relaxed.
Had enough fun for those few hours, that it reminded me of the things I have to smile about in my life now. How much, relatively better my life has become the last few years. There's been some crappy things going on lately, that have been hard. But today I was able to almost entirely block it out, and just enjoy my day. Without worrying about the things that have been so time consuming and stressful lately.

greygiraffe: It was a nice break from the chaos. That's for sure! *Hug*
qutenkuddly: I can't wait to get it fixed. One moment it'll be just fine, and a minute later, it'll decide to completely crap out. Just trying to enjoy it while it's lasting, as much as I'll probably regret it soon... :/
kimmie: Yeah its been awhile. Even the start up site outside of the forum is down

firewallflower: The irony is that I wouldn't actually be on AVEN now if the site were functioning, but since it's down, I feel compelled to keep checking for any change. I should, however, go to bed—and will do so.

firewallflower: Keep calm and carry on and send good thoughts towards whatever tech people are working on this, I guess? And in the meantime, cake.

blomdor: Cake and good thoughts to you as well!
