Obama signs orders to close secret prisons and Guantánamo
President Barack Obama signed executive orders Thursday directing the Central Intelligence Agency to shut what remains of its network of secret prisons and ordering the closing of the Guantánamo detention camp within a year.

Oh my gods, is it actually happening? Is he going to keep his campaign promise? Is this abomination and embarrassment finally over?

*crosses fingers*

Obameter change: +5 (+5)
Last night, the pain in my knee kept waking me up, as it has been doing every night for weeks now. So I finally broke down and took my mother's advice, and put on the leg brace I had stuffed away in my closet. It keeps my knee from bending, and pads my knee from contact.

OMG, it worked! I slept through the night after putting it on! My knee pain is substantially reduced, and though it's still swollen and hard to bend, it's DEFINITELY better. Yeah!

Out of the following:


Running low on the following:

Toilet paper
Clean clothes
Paper towels
OTC pain killers (naproxen, tylenol)
Printer ink

Tasks I need done:

Take out garbage/recycling
Return books to library

Just putting it out there, what I need....
Wow, I actually have some "get up and go!" Nice for a change.

I showered, took my meds, and answered my messages.

I cooked some food -- simering pinto beans for chili, and am also baking some biscuits.

I vacuumed the kitchen and common area.

I walked down the steps to get the mail (first time I've been able to do it without excruciating pain in days).

I walked down the steps again to take out the trash and recycling.

I emailed DVR to see what's happening -- my counselor hasn't been returning my messages, and I haven't actively job hunted since the start of the year: I've been homebound, with no energy, no drive, and waaaaay too much physical pain.

I called the Whatcom Homeless Service Center and Assumption Church, asking for back rent help, so I don't get evicted. No idea yet what will happen there.

For me... that's a pretty productive day!
