New Superhero Name

This year has been shit for me. I had back surgery in late January. My relationship with my mother took a shit *during* the week of my recovery from back surgery. Our relationship is now strained and not likely to recover. (I have accepted that.) I had Duke put to sleep in February. My BIL… Continue reading New Superhero Name


Lazy Sunday

Sleepy Dukeit has been a quiet and somber weekend; we decided to euthanize Duke yesterday. He was so old, 18 years, had trouble walking, and we often had to check to make sure he was breathing. He was down to 21 pounds. He loved being in the grass He had a really good, long, life.

I realize my fantasizing and… Continue reading Monday motivation

Lazy Sunday

Can these guys get anymore relaxed? So I woke up the other day and found this. You can see my right pant leg, the pink with the light pattern in it, along with my foot in the purple sock peeking out from under the blanket. Anna is right by my foot, Toby has wedged himself… Continue reading Lazy Sunday

It's one thing if it's a broken arm or leg, but this is my spine we're talking about here, a very serious and delicate area. I gotta be honest, I am looking… Continue reading Here we go…
