This entry is part 14 of 14 in the series Periodic Updates

Life, Our Universe, and Pets: To start with – an accidental coffee mishap this morning might make this a bit more scattershot than usual.  If so, I apologize. We keep two Keurigs in the house, as the single cup brewing helped a ton with our widely varying approaches to sleep. Continue Reading →

The Undying Cold, Medical Roulettes, and the Hope/Terror Balancing Act

This entry is part 13 of 14 in the series Periodic Updates

Life, Our Universe, and Pets: A lot has happened since the last time I managed an updates post. Frankly, I’m not quite sure where to start. Probably with the fact that the past months have been hard, on a number of different levels. We said goodbye to two of our Continue Reading →

The End (of 2016) – Summing up and Moving Forward

This entry is part 12 of 14 in the series Periodic Updates

2016 was an interesting year.  And may have been the year that finally taught me that my approach to my own health has been broken for most of my life. I’m not particularly patient with myself, and I hate taking the time to properly rest or heal.  There’s always so Continue Reading →

Children are People: Why ‘No’ always means ‘No’

This entry is part 1 of 1 in the series Heavy Content

Around a week and a half ago, this landed in my Facebook feed. Given how Mister Tea and I reacted to it, I feel I should warn that if you have experienced trauma that caused trust issues or PTSD, this may stir things up a bit. Despite that, and in Continue Reading →

Some Weeks are Heavier than Others (04/29/16)

This entry is part 11 of 14 in the series Periodic Updates

Life, Our Universe, and Pets: It’s been a long stretch.  Short period of time, but one that has felt unending. I’d mentioned that we’d found a trainer that would be willing to work with us in house, which was a lovely heartening thing. However, when communicating with her we forgot Continue Reading →

Life, Our Universe, and Pets: Still more than a week later, but closer than the last time.  I may be finding a rhythm for things again. Our biggest excitement is a return to normalcy.  Or, what counts for us as normal.  In a very specific area. Our chickens are finally Continue Reading →

Time-Lost Update Post

This entry is part 9 of 14 in the series Periodic Updates

Life, Our Universe, and Pets: So…  been a while.  Completely unintended. 2016 has so far been the year of learning that I need to be a little more careful in how much I do and how often and when.  The body I live in is pretty beaten up, and it Continue Reading →

Life, Our Universe, and Pets: The plan was for weekly updates, it really was. Then again, it has been a fairly busy and complicated month.

Periodic Updates (09/04/15)

This entry is part 5 of 14 in the series Periodic Updates

Life, Our Universe, and Pets: Life still seems to be moving fairly fast.  Not sure if this is because of the new schedule, or because of the relative productivity we’ve managed, or something else I’ve not thought of. The days have been sailing by. The most notable event of this past Continue Reading →

Periodic Updates (08/27/15)

This entry is part 4 of 14 in the series Periodic Updates

Life, Our Universe, and Pets: I’ve been rediscovering things lately.  Some good, some irritating (but still good.)
