Fair point about the eating of people - the worry in our house is that the cat will chow down if we’re in trouble. Read more

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

I admire your bravery in the face of a crazy weather event. I get to deal with blizzards up here and they freak me out. You are an impressively chill person!

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!

For real, work creates a constant low level stress that I can only notice when it's not there. Of course, the absence makes me anxious so I don't win in either case.

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

I had a Covid scare last week. Turns out it was walking Pneumonia (!). I only started to feel better on Monday, I foresee having shortness of breath for a few weeks :-/. 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

I went 27 minutes without a Zoom meeting or email and, for a moment, wondered, Am I still alive?

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

Oh Tabby I’m sorry. What a shit time for this to happen. That is a really quick turn around time for a total hip replacement though I can see them wanting to get her out quickly and to home as opposed to a rehab facility. Read more

Yeah, I trust this vet. And I know all these results are ... not meaningless, but ephemeral. They are going to do a pee stick when he goes in for his dental in a few wks. His readings last year were all perfectly healthy, even for a fat guy. 😝

*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
