It’s been a struggle

I know it’s no excuse not to have been reading or writing. We’ve all been impacted by this unholy pandemic. All I can say is that even with all this inanity going on, there’s been enough bonus stressors to make it difficult to spend time thinking and not being in a state of utter bewilderment. […]

I’m in a depression spiral; and I’ll likely vent some on that later – but right now I’m just shaken to the core by how Bestie (X Bestie? XB? I’m open for ideas, people) has lied, and continues to lie, not only to everyone around her but to herself about the parasite she’s allowed into […]

Read More LIAR!


Yes. it’s been a while – and while I feel terrible guilt about even having a blog and NOT writing, I also feel like an utter rat for not reading the posts of my lovely Blog Family. It’s been… more than I know how to handle. The first,, and most complex, time consuming bit was […]

Still Reeling

Yes, it actually happened. I’m currently adjusting to my bespoke shiny new knee, not snapping at my husband, and trying to find ways to get the very little I can do, done. I suppose the best place to start is morning of the surgery… Head’s up, I’ve had a dose of goofballs – there may […]

So here I am… Less than 24 hours from surgery, barring any unexpected delays – and let’s be real here, they’ve all been unexpected. I don’t know how to explain what I’m feeling or how to process this on top of all the other shenanigans that have been plaguing the world. It’s a lot for […]

Thirdly, if things go as intended (you may all cross your fingers now) there’s likely to be another big empty blank spot while I’m hopped up […]

Some of the Good Stuff

This is Roja.  “Excuse me, ma’am?”  I had a 4 pm reservation….”  She’s very sweet, and easily intimidated by some other, bigger raccoons.  I think this is her first litter.   This is Beep, on the left and Rory on the right.  Beep has some damage to his eye, so we fret when he goes […]

I’m still here

“I’m still here” – some days that’s about all I can take credit for.  For not snapping at the fools racing up and down our street, or better yet, getting a paintball gun and shooting at them.  For not screaming at people blasting loud music.  For going to pick up my prescription, wearing something claustrophobic […]

Too Much Noise

I could, quite possibly, write a rather long and heated essay here about the latest series of clusters in my world.  Or I could go on and speak about the virus in the room.  I could rant on, try to cheer people up, or go out and do stuff.  Well, we kind of did the […]
