I had one migraine in July. This has never before happened in recorded history (dating back to ~2000). So I'm continuing to try to reduce my gluten intake. I am still "cheating" regularly (is there a better word for that? I'm still "making exceptions" regularly), but the reduction is having a significant impact anyway.

Duties for the promotion at work are slowly starting to appear. The raise associated with it has yet to appear, but I have been assured that it will "soon". I'm not sure I'm enjoying it yet, but I'm not as overwhelmed as I feared I would be. I'd really like to see the impact this has on my savings rate, and thus progress toward my early retirement goal.

My debate between holing up in my apartment versus seeking out play and connection post-breakup with rynhollis seems to have resolved itself in a way that took me by surprise. I connected with someone outside the scene who's kinky, poly, geeky, and even local. I feel a little uneasy about starting something new so quickly, but this is the sort of thing I wanted to make more room for in my life and something I've been open to for well over a year. So I'm just going to enjoy it and see what happens. (That's not true. I'm going to analyze it to death, enjoy it, and see what happens.)

My July weekend date with Lynk got cancelled at the last minute, which really hurt. I'd been stockpiling so much emotion and talking with him more than usual on the phone and I just wanted to wrap myself in his arms for a few days and let the everyday stresses float away for a while. I agree with his reasons and I think he made the right call, but it still hurt to lose that time with him.

I sent in the paperwork to change my name and quickly got a "you did it wrong" letter back, so I'm trying again. Maybe in a month or so I'll have a ton of paperwork to do.

The Wegman's on Telegraph opened in June. I've been looking forward to that for months.

While I'm sorry about your Lync cancellation, I'm really glad for all of the other good things you listed. Congrats on finding a migraine trigger that you can now control to some degree. That must feel really freeing. "This thing that was attacking me randomly as I walk along is not so random now. I have a map and now I decide if I want to walk down the paths marked 'not a good idea'..."

How frustrating with Lynk - does he know how you feel?

Can't wait to hear more about the other the new interests :)
