Arghhh

Is it just me, or is this week crazy?

Still sick

From what people tell me, another day of the bad stuff and then a week of feeling exhausted. Whee!

Sick as a dog today

Blogging will be light. Looks like I caught something in the doctor’s office!

Moral quandry

As you all should know by now, I hate mice — at least, when they’re in my space. I noticed a mouse in the kitchen this week (hopefully only one) and baited a trap with peanut butter. Then I heard the snap! All well and good. But then I looked over and saw its little […]

Slow news day again

Everyone is using up their vacation time, so there aren’t a lot of stories. I’ll dig up what I can. In the meantime, I’m going to the hospital this afternoon to get a Baker’s cyst drained. (It took me a while to find a place where they’d do it.) The orthopedist explained to me why […]

Unlucky streak

So last night, while I was sleeping, a shelf in the storage closet in my downstairs hallway collapsed, spewing assorted cans of paint all over the place. I will have to pay to replace the carpeting. Oh joy. My luck is holding!
