We now know what 2020 had in mind for September. Most of the West Coast of the US, including near where I live, is on fire. Please don't try to debate me on climate change. This is a direct result of ignoring science and those who warned us. No amount of 'raking the forest floor' … Continue reading A new layer of constant dread
So, I'm heading out the door in about 45 minutes to go to work. The 2nd load of laundry's in the dryer, dishwasher is running, and I made my hubby's lunch for tomorrow. I've made sure there's food for them to make in the freezer, the bed is made, and I even dusted the walls … Continue reading It’s a trap! And I made it!
Hey. It's September 1, 2020. Fall isn't quite here yet, and the year has a lot more time left to mess with us. I'm resisting saying it can't get worse because, well, it can. I don't want to tempt it. One thing I've always loved about Autumn is the falling leaves. As I sit at … Continue reading The roots of my fantasy worlds.
Well, my hands are officially out of the braces. The CTS should be resolved. Or, if not completely gone, where I can resume all normal activities and only wear the braces at night if I see symptoms. The trigger finger on my right hand is much better now. Doctor gave me a steroid shot to … Continue reading Starting slow, and being patient
Hey. I'm not working today, but Muse decided I was done sleeping. Such is life when you're owned by a tortoiseshell cat. LOL Two years ago today, I explored Black Isle. It's not a real island, more of a peninsula surrounded on three sides by water. It's to the north of Inverness, and has some … Continue reading Black Isle, Clootie Wells, and Healing

Will try to do another post tonight about what happened on the 12th. This story is from 8/11/2018. This was our 2nd full … Continue reading Loch Ness memories
August 10, 2018: The plane landed in Glasgow at approximately 6 am local time. I can't remember sleeping much as we flew across the Atlantic. That need that had been in my soul for decades had awoken like a hungry lion. I needed to get to Scotland, fulfill some promise made lifetimes ago. Only I … Continue reading Memories of Scotland, 2 years later
I don't know how long will be in the braces. I do have a follow-up visit with my Dr. tomorrow at 2:00 PM. Hopefully we will have better answers as to what's going on with the two fingers and exactly how long I will be in the braces. Until then I want to get back … Continue reading Testing 123
Sooo... I'm still typing via two fingers. The hands are in braces, and my physical therapist thinks I should see a specialist for the trigger fingers. Sigh. I'm currently waiting to hear my PCP's thoughts about that. The good news? First, I have discovered my laptop has speech-to-text built in. A microphone has been ordered. … Continue reading Good news!
Hey everyone, About two weeks ago, I noticed something that wasn't right. I woke up and my hands were stiff. Seriously stiff, where it hurt slightly to straighten them. This went on for three mornings straight. As the day went on they'd feel fine, at first. Still, there's arthritis in my family. I called and … Continue reading Owie
