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?
[I would love to stick a catchy tune here. But I’d rather play Baby’s in Black on ukulele for E than compose anything, so. *insert catchy update alerting music*] WRITING omg. I’m working on a first draft of something. It’s painful but fun. Also still working on my mammogram essay, which is hi-larious since I … More Weekly Update of I’m Old and Loving Every Minute of It

So far we’ve made chili, tomato sauce, stuffed peppers, and BLTs, and frankly, I like to eat the heirlooms in big fat … More Sooooo Many Tomatoes
KID UPDATE TIME He is doing….REALLY, REALLY GREAT. I mean, we still have all the health and disability and special needs stuff. Nothing magical has happened to make that disappear, or make healthcare a thing we can just pretend we don’t need. Ahem. Likesomepeopleinthiscountry argh argh argh. But E is doing well. Every day we, … More Update on the whatsoever
I turned off all of the everything on FB. I opened the site, and immediately a pic swam to the top of my feed. It doesn’t matter who and what it was — all that matters is I looked at it, and I thought, in the manner of most FB users, probably: Wow. That makes me … More Small Rebellion
THE GARDEN, OH THE GARDEN I spent most of the weekend finishing the shoveling of dirt into garden boxes digging in a ring around a maple tree sticking bricks in the tree ring shoveling dirt into the tree ring staring perplexedly at the absolutely wild amount of dirt remaining shoveling dirt into a wheelbarrow, and doing … More I Work Hard and I Play Hard
