Preface: There has been a mandatory hiatus from this. Sorry/not sorry. I know it was abrupt. I know it was unexplained. I'll try to explain now. As for finally breaking my silence? This is partly my own therapy because the grief/anger/fear/horror/grief/anger/fear/horror/fatigue/grief/anger/fear...just sometimes gets to be bigger than rationality. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ My father is in a lockdown … Continue reading Go Home Alzheimer’s…You’re Drunk
This is actually a picture taken from a couple of years ago. I've been going through old photos on my phone and realized this was a gem that I never addressed fully in the manner in which it was intended when I took it at a marine store.

My husband can … Continue reading Does Your Inner Girl Have a Vagina?
So I decided to get up at 6:30 AM to make chocolate ice cream instead of going for a run because I'm clearly not the adultiest of adults. I don't adult willingly. Adulting gives me tantrums. I cry until snot bubbles form and I can't talk without my breath hitching making every word take a … Continue reading Benedict Arnold Fat Baby
I'm just wondering... Does anyone else have timing issues with the gym? I literally could motivate myself better to prepare for a colonoscopy than psych myself into going to the gym. Every personal trainer hates my ass primarily because I hate theirs. When I hear "WOOO you did it" in relevance to a work … Continue reading Scrubbing The Toilet Is My Cardio
HH: Did you hear that? Me: Hear what? HH: That! That noise. Me: What noise? HH: It sounded like a puff of air. Me: Yes. You farted. HH: I did not. That's ridiculous. Wait! There it is again!
