I'm still alive, and paying for the blog's hosting. Worry not! Everything in the world is pretty awful at the moment, but things with our little family are actually pretty good. No one is sick. We bought the apartment next... Continue reading

I feel a little bit like there isn’t much I can do to be helpful during this global pandemic. I’m not a healthworker, I can’t sew (trust me, you wouldn’t want to wear a mask I made. The last time... Continue reading

A while back I got a bunch of t-shirts that were the wrong size. I said then I wasn't confident I'd get replacements: I’ve reached out to Loot Crate support, so I’m hoping I can exchange them for a smaller... Continue reading

Background stress. That’s what I felt when I was in the hospital overnight a few months ago. It wasn’t serious, but the docs wanted to keep me under observation (these days I’m pretty sure I would have just been sent... Continue reading

Having AFib hasn’t really impacted my life all that much. I have to take some medicine twice a day, which is surprisingly difficult to remember, and that’s about it. Oh, and now whenever I get a headache I have to... Continue reading
