Oh, don’t worry, I’ve been a low level ball of anxiety for days. But a weird calm sets in once you know for sure the storm is coming, because there’s nothing else you can do and things get weirdly.... festive? I’m about to pour a glass of wine here in a second. Hurricane parties are a real thing lol. I grew up with… Read more
There is no winning! The absence of work stress makes me think there must be something I’m forgetting. And of course when I was unemployed over the summer that was its own different type of anxiety. We all know this already, but truly the societal systems we’ve set up are totally fucked. It’s so goddamn stupid to… Read more
Yes! to a Krimi family visit. Use those loopholes for all you can to get that precious personal time. I'm very happy for you in advance!
Working at home today, waiting for Hurricane Zeta to hit in an hour or two. The wind is just picking up and the rain starting to intensify now. After 6 times being in the cone of an oncoming hurricane this year, it looks for this 7th time we’re finally due. Everyone I know is kind of half waiting for the “nope, not… Read more
True midweek madness: new Corona measures in my adopted and in my home country, both tightening things up, and yet it also means through some quirk that Krimi Junior could come visit for about 10 days without the need to quarantine at either end. Which had been impossible these past few weeks. And as neither of us… Read more
Second day in a row with an awful headache, and I’m pretty sure my boss has the idea that I’m working late tonight, which was news to me. Yesterday he said he feels like they’re dropping me into “a last minute nonsense machine,” which was both hilarious and extremely true. And then today at noon he wanted to know my… Read more
It sounds terrible to say but that’s probably good that your dad and mom had those experiences! It’s good prep for this. My parents are similar, though dad doesn’t mind meals on wheels now. There’s a $2 a day charge so it’s transactional and not “charity”- plus they drop it off at the door. He hates even saying hello… Read more
Thank you! My dad needed a hip replacement 2 years ago and needed a month in a rehab facility so I’m concerned about my mom going straight home. She has recovered with a broken femur at home, so she has experience using a walker and they have things like portable commode/shower chair/etc. Being across the country… Read more
*hugs* for you and *head scritches* for Boggs. It'll be ok, PS, don't worry!
Got the blood test results back from Boggs’ vet appt. Everything is normal and fine... except his creatinine level is “on the high end of normal.” My vet’s office has several doctors and you usually see someone random unless you specifically ask for Dr. So and So, but this recent appt I had the doc who was Gus’s… Read more
