Learning Curve

After three days of straight bed rest, I got up today able to walk without my spine coiling and my shoulders pushing themselves up and forward and my back rising in an abdominally protective hunch with a scrunched up look of woe on my face. I am out of “wracking spasms of knifelike, slice-y pain” […]

Then I went around telling everyone it was my second time in Michigan until someone mentioned this excellent […]

Here We All Are Then!

Hi there! See, no worries, we will have 3Q over HERE now is all. I wasn’t trying to be SPOOKY.

Did you look at the new site? Oh please look at the new site! What do you think? I LOVE it. I love the little GUNS everywhere. Cig Harvey graciously allowed me to use her […]

Double Dog

Me, currently alive, playing with my kids.

New Blog Test: This post previously appeared on my group blog, Five Full Plates.
