randomness, ohh yes: sickness & Ben-love, belated Christmas presents, Posty McPostsalot

Why the 'ewwwww' icon? I've been sick the past couple of days *coughs, wipes eyes, sneezes, blows nose* and Ben has been taking care of me ♥ I've always had a very strong constitution and rarely get sick -- when I do I am miiiiiiiserable and I hate everything. I'm starting to get better now, thanks to a lot of sleep, water, and love. It really means a lot to me that Ben has been extra sweet, because I revert to a four-year-old when sick and get lonely and cry if I don't get taken care of (luckily it only happens about once a year), and because it is such a marked change in him. I didn't have to ask him to be extra kind; he just was! I called him at work to ask him to get me some soup on his way home and he cheerfully agreed, and said, "don't worry, I'll take care of you." *melts* And he cuddled me without me asking, and offered to go out especially to get me something, and genuinely showed concern every now and then (he used to forget if we weren't actually talking about it). And he went way out of his way to get me a chai ♥ ♥ ♥

I shipped out very-belated Christmas presents on Monday but un-cleverly didn't put my name on them (only my legal name on the outside) so if you get a package from GA, it's me! ;-) It is a 2008 goal of mine to prepare further in advance and FOR REAL get them shipped by December 13th. Also, if you didn't get anything, it's not because I don't love you. It is probably because #1) I didn't have ideas and you didn't help! or #2) I have limited funds. If I was super-wealthy, all of my LJ friends would get something... but I'm not! And yes, I know I don't need to explain, but I want to, because it is important to me that you know you are important to me and I didn't skip you for lack of love. There are at least three of you that I reeeeeally wanted to get gifts but didn't. And next year hopefully I will know you better or have stalked down your wishlists AND be fabulously rich. ;-)

This is my tenth post in a week! That's what you get for telling me to post whenever I feel like it. and I'm liking it. I'm still restraining myself a bit because I want to try and keep up with comments better, but it feels good to let flow more... and I have so many posts that I've held back over time because #1) I didn't feel inspired enough to complete them or #2) I wanted to wait and make sure that each post got attention or #3) I didn't want to annoy/bore any of my flist. Lately I have inspiration, don't feel the need to nurture each post so much, and have a sudden freedom from worrying that I will annoy/bore you. :D

While I'm here, vote please?

I hate having limited funds!! Ooooh, do you know how many people I'd love to buy so many things for? I see things all the time that scream the names of a hundred people I know.

In fact, something screamed your name recently.
I'd love to have them for myself even, but ninety? No way, jose.

I hope you feel better soon. It is really sweet Ben is taking care of you. That makes me happy. You deserve to be pampered (especially when you are sick and even when you are not). I will send you some healing energy.

I think it is so nice you sent out packages. I just know you would send the most perfect things. You are such a good person, Bel. Take care! ♥♥♥
belenen ══╣adoring╠══
aww ;-) thank you!

aww, what a sweet hubby!! i must give him props right here ;) i love taking care of my friends when they're sick, but only if it's gone in a few days, haha!! i don't have the patience anymore to nurse people for days & days. are you feelin better??

thanks again SO MUCH for the package, bel!! that was so sweet of you!! I can't wait to find the perfect gift for your birthday-- i haven't seen it yet, but i'll find it. do you like tourmaline??

also, i think i missed the posting-poll, but it is my FIRM belief that everyone should post as often as they feel like it. i have a bunch of lj friends who post up multiple times a day, and a bunch who maybe post up once a week. i probably average out to every few days, which works for me, but if i had more down-time and more to say, i might post up multiple times in a day too. do what floats YOUR boat!! anyone who doesn't like it can jump off & take a swim. ;)

well, I was only bad-sick for two days, the others I was just mildly sick and not in need of care-taking ;-) am better now!

You're so welcome! and as for tourmaline, I don't know -- I don't like pink but I know it comes in many colors, some of which I'm sure I'd like. ;-) I'm happy that you're already thinking of my birthday! :D :D :D That makes me feel so special ♥

:D I'm happy about my new posting habits! even if I have gotten behind-er in commenting than usual.

Isn't this your journal? Post whatever you want! If someone finds it boring, they can skip it! =) I'm sure I bore my flist alllll the time, hehe. I try (& it's not always easy) not to write for an audience, but to just write what I want and express myself, like I would in a paper journal.

I totally thought of you every time I saw a cute little glass bottle while holiday shopping, but alas, the whole running out of money thing. =P I would also love to spoil everyone I know, even online, but yeah, the wealth hasn't materialized yet.
belenen ══╣adoring╠══
awwww! I feel delighted just that you thought of me :D
GA: Izzie yay!

Bel I got my book in the mail today and I'm absolutely in love with the subject matter. I feel so grateful to have friends like you who take the time to understand my tastes and hobbies and honor them as such.

A BIG THANK YOU!! *hugs* I have glitter all over myself, the wifey and the dog but I couldn't be more happier. You are beyond generous and kind. ♥
belenen ══╣eccentric╠══
Yay! I can't remember if I left a note in, but it is one of my very-most-favorites (have read it at least 4 times) and I know you will love it -- and I think you more than any other friend would understand just why I love it so!

*giggles* When I was wrapping it up I hesitated before putting the glitter in, and then I thought hey, if it was any other guy I would do it! So I put it in anyway, evilly contemplating the glittersplosion and your possible consternation >:-D

I know wat you mean. If I had the money, everyone on my flist would get presents. I am terrible at sending things though, so maybe it's a bit of a good thing.
belenen ══╣eccentric╠══
hee hee, I know -- I still have several packages left to send and it's been nearly a month! *shakes head at self*

Bel, I got my package yesterday and I wanted to thank you so much for such a thoughtful gift! And for the glitter! :D I was not expecting anything in the mail at all so it was a fantastic surprise on an otherwise kind of melancholy day. I can't wait to read the books! ♥
belenen ══╣curious╠══
aww yay! I can't wait to read what you think! You are very welcome :D
