That’s a relief. I was getting quite worried. She spent most of the weekend sleeping or looking like a zombie, eating only what Sam could coax into her, and using heating pads. I’m starting to think that we should accept the offer to refer her to a pain management doctor if only to have something […]
I don’t like loud holidays. I get nervous about all those explosions. There were random fireworks going off during the day today, too. At least they finished earlier last night than they do on New Year’s Eve! My baby girl is having a bad flare :-( She was going to a Braves game with friends […]
I guess everybody has heard, by now, that we lost George Carlin last night. I’ve seen many articles about him today, but I think Susie Bright did the best job of catching his spirit. Today was a very Monday-ish Monday. I’m grumpy and nothing feels right. The girl is off spending time with my family, […]
Well, sorta. Katie and I indulged in a Veronica Mars marathon tonight, watching most of two DVDs of episodes. It was a good thing to keep me occupied while doing a very, very boring technical chore. She was doing some mending, so it served the same kind of purpose for her. Sam’s been trying to […]
I consider Sunday the first day of the week rather than the last. It was a week full of appointments for the girl and getting paperwork shuffled to various bureaucracies. Sam and I had lovely dates Wednesday and tonight, although we were so exhausted Wednesday that we turned in much earlier than usual.
Yes, it was another date night. Yay! (They are the highlights of my week, with good reason.) The girl went out on a date, so we had the house to ourselves. It still feels odd, at times, not to have any kids around, and not to even be worried about picking them up. We like […]
Today was the monthly visit to the pain doc, which requires trekking across town to Fascist County. It was somewhat amusing to see “Drought Threat Level 4 Measures in Effect!” right next to CVS watering their little patch of grass. The doctor doubled my breakthrough pain med so that I’m allowed to take it more often. […]
Not the nice, Johnny Depp kind, no. The pillage/rape/murder sort spiced up with demon-worshipping shark people. Tonight was date night, and I was impatient to be back to our game. We’d left off at a very unresolved point the last time we played, before the weekend. It would be almost impossible for someone else to […]
I was so busy Monday, and so wiped out, that I actually scribbled this out on paper and just now (Thursday) got a chance to type it in. We had Hope until this morning, which was nice. But then she left, which I knew would happen, but it still wasn’t as nice. I miss her! Kioshi […]
I have an SBQ to post, but it’ll have to wait. :-) I’m loving having Hope here for a visit. She’s great company, and certainly easy on the eyes. She’s been marvelously patient with my need to sleep so much and the fact that I’m dopey from fibro fogs and medications.
