It has been some time since I posted much here, so I figure that I should do a bit of an update. It isn’t as if anything has changed in any big way. Sam has the same nice and stable job, and we’re still very happily together after—oh, wow, it’s twelve years this month. Katie is […]
Katie seems to be feeling a bit better. She slept through most of the day, and just got up a few minutes ago (right at the end of my and Sam’s date) feeling like she could eat something. Solid food, even! That’s progress. Since she didn’t have any antivirals, I don’t think this was really […]

Look! TWO posts in ONE day! Maybe I’m finally crawling out of my pit of depression. My very helpful child disapproved of how I was treating my small stitching project, so she sweetly put it in a huge Ziplock bag and “put it away.” I have absolutely no idea where “away” might be, but it isn’t […]
I hate coming up with titles. Can you tell? Happy New Year to all of you. I hope to see more of you in person this year! I’m still not feeling well at all, so I haven’t been online much. Despite that, my wrists have been aching as if I were working again. How does that happen? […]
Ten years ago today, Sam took me out on our first “real” date (as in, without the kids or anyone else). Thank you, love. Here’s to many more decades!
