While I was waiting for my six-month dental checkup, I enjoyed about a dozen dozen of these: Behind You Nothing like phobia to fight phobia! Advertisements
My dude E slept through the night last night for the first time in a couple weeks, so A and I did, too. The house is filled with delight. Delight, I say! And snores — those too. I have also been taking advantage of his unbroken sleep to read while tucked in bed with a … More Patron saint of heating pads and regrets
As promised: pictorial proof of honey oatmeal bread! It raised and ultimately looks a little like a quick bread. It has a very soft, but not quite gluey texture. So much more like real actual bread than I was expecting. Loaf has about 13 slices, and I probably should have baked it in a slightly … More Honey Honey
So what have I been up, besides suffering and suffering and making sure everyone knows and appreciates it? Not. Effing. Much. Well, some stuff. A and I watched a couple of Steven Seagal movies. They were entertaining to watch and make fun of together but I don’t think i would’ve watched them alone unless under … More Done Complaining for a Bit
My folks came to stay with us for two weeks, and it was pretty good. We only had one extended argument over bowls, preferences, gifts, and adulthood. It also helped immensely that they were present for our anesthesia vomitfest fiasco with E. I’m not sure whether I’m freaked that I got so immediately comfortable with … More Having said that (by Grabthar’s Hammer, what a summer, part 2).
I has had it with this summer, I has. Seizures, emergency meds, stress, weird home healthcare companies and their lack of any basic human client services training, asparagus beetles, overgrown landscaping, cucumber beetles, Eamon’s dental op anesthesia gone awry, cryptosporidium, ER visits, oral rehydration solution, slugs (SLUGS) (WHERE is my bok choy, you slug bastards?)…. … More The Summer From Hell. With no apologies to Richard Lewis, as usual.
I am delightfully busy with New Job, so busy, in fact, that even though it’s part-time I am too tired for anything outside of it. But yay, additional money. It doesn’t help that E’s weird summer of seizures has mostly manifested as — surprise! — poor sleep. Whether that is due to new meds or … More What am I doing, air? Where am I going, star?
H/t to sasha_feather for the great rec! American Masters has a doc up about Ursula K. Le Guin, and it’s currently free to stream online here: Worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin
This has been a tough summer. Starting in May, E began having big seizures. By big, I guess I mean, ones that we can tell that oh shit, something is happening, we have that emergency med, don’t we? What are we supposed to do again? Start timing! Wait, it’s over. Okay. I think I have the … More In Danger of [unspecified]
I’m busy not eating anything in preparation for my colonoscopy (although I haven’t yet begun the Prep of the prep, thank god) so instead I’m getting stuff done. Getting ready to paint 80% of the house interior. Why did the previous owners have such passion for heavy brown tones? Olive. Hot latte. Tobacco. Other stuff? … More Forget all that — here is a dog.
