I admit that while I don't post often and it seems more often than not I've been posting about the negative, things seem to be pretty good with the monkey and I.
The monkey has made a number of appointments to take care of herself well.
We went up to her college, and took care of some problems. She's once again a student although we're waiting on some more paperwork to finalize it all.
After asking repeatedly about job applications, I decided that we won't worry about it until "q2" (i.e. april).
She sat down, just a few hours ago for a haircut. No fuss, no muss. She's now sporting a mohawk. which still gives me something to grab, even though it appeals to my short-hair fetish.
She's been doing well in keeping the house clean, and in taking care of me during an event we were recently at.
Her body has been staying shaved.
We've been getting to bed at mostly reasonable hours. My plan of "get to bed early, then get up and spend time doing things until she wakes" seems to be mostly cohesive.
All in all, I feel really proud, and hopeful. It feels like a good start to the year.
