Wednesday evening, I successfully made my third apheresis donation of 2011. Finally, the number isn't quite so embarassing anymore!
Wednesday also brought me to the 18.5 year mark since 'meeting' t'DoL. Getting excited about 19!
Best of all, on Monday I got a call from my wonderful aunt, who finished reading book 5 sometime earlier. At LAST, someone is through the finish line! And when I say 'at last,' I don't just mean the waiting since I finished writing in April, but the waiting since I started really making progress on book 1 in 1998. Such a long road, so many years of having to keep my mouth shut on the whole story and its ending, of only getting an 'outlet' through locked-up spoilerific essays or follow-up stories, and now the waiting is starting to end. AT LAST.
