days, Happies


Today was a good day. Marriage equality has come to Minnesota, and as far as I can tell, Michael and I are still married. One of my friends fears her marriage may have turned into a frog, but I guess it’ll be difficult to tell until the tadpoles start showing up.


There were parties last night for couples marrying at midnight, but I am no fun and went to bed instead. Michael hung up the Pride flag we bought last week at Northern Sun, though, and I spent all day being happy.

My morning (and most of the afternoon, honestly) was spent goofing off on the internet. Michelle went home on Tuesday, so I still miss her, and my self-medication is laziness. Later I rode my bike to a friend’s house to get cat-sitting instructions, and from there I rode to Trader Joe’s for dinner stuff. There is a special joy I feel, doing actual errands on my bike. Traveling for a purpose, rather than (the admittedly terrific) just riding around.

After I made turkey burgers, I walked down to Grand Central to knit with some friends. It was a beautiful night. I love living in a neighborhood where I can walk to so many things. I feel like I liveĀ in something, rather than on the periphery.

I’m back to work tomorrow, after a week off for Michelle’s visit. Other than having to wake up at 6:30, I’m actually looking forward to being back. Which I know makes me luckiest of all.

    Happy that you’re happy. :) The weekend just past was a 4-day one and I was looking forward to going back to work too. We are the lucky ones indeed.

    I vote pics of my visit – because I was there – and I visited.
