Well, it looks like I’m back on the one entry a month program. ha! World’s gone to hell in a hand basket. How’s everyone doing? I’ve been sort of reading and failing to note. In a semi-constant s...

Today’s date is pretty. It’s been an exhausting couple of weeks. One of my coworkers and Aaron’s step mother (do you call them a step mother if she married Aaron’s father when Aaron was an adult...

2020 in Ponderings of the Universe

I don’t typically do new year’s resolutions, but I’d kind of like to write here more often. Now that I’m no longer in school and, as a result, not on a computer as often, I definitely don’t have ...


I’m writing! Whee!! I have a three day weekend! Aaron and I are going to Duluth tomorrow and we’ll go to Bentleyville, which is pretty much my favorite Christmas activity. Aside from that, I thin...

Happy being 33! As a gift, my body has given me a cold. Huzzah. I napped a lot today and didn’t go to Aaron’s family’s Thanksgiving thing. I’m feeling a little better but still not great. Our fo...

Tomorrow is my birfday! Today was another hectic work day. Sadly, the snow did nothing to keep anyone away. At least I was able to transfer very sick kitty I saw to emergency for more testing and...

Today was a Monday Plus. I’m so exhausted. I have such a sick patient and am 98% he won’t make it through the night. I’m doing what I can with what I have available and that’s all I can do. I d...

Today has been quite lazy. Last night wasn’t too bad. We ended up going to a Chianti Grill. I’d never been to one before. It was OK. Better than Olive Garden, though definitely overpriced. But t...

Surprise! Social engagement! Aaron’s brother’s wife’s birthday thing. At least we convinced them to go to a better restaurant. Have made mistake of wearing high waist pants again so there will d...

Had today off. Lazy day. Did some laundry and not much else. Have a half day tomorrow and then another day off, so not too bad. Aaron and I just finished watching the final season of Jane The Vir...

Worked late tonight. M had an emergency surgery/resurgery. We don’t usually have so many late nights but it seems like in the past month or two things have been crazy in an atypical way. I don’t...

2/3 done! I don’t feel particularly write-y tonight. Have gotten tickets to see both Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats and the Secret Sisters. Yay concerts! Arty was very into sticking his...

Long day. We were busy at work. New Boss had a linear foreign body surgery that I helped with over lunch. Then I got a HBC (Hit By Car) at the end of the day. Critter was lucky, no obvious giant ...

It’s been a headache-y, angry GI tract-y sort of day. Aaron and I jinxed it by saying how it had been a while since I’d had a grumpy gut. Well, that changed this morning lol. Had a parvo puppy ...

Well, it finally happened. Arty fell into the toilet. We try to be good about keeping the seat down for that very reason but it definitely gets missed somettimes. Last night, Aaron was brushing...

The problem with writing entries at night is I get tired and don’t really feel like writing much of anything. Last night was fun. We went to Red Rabbit and, though the wait was ridiculously long,...

Weirdly stressed out today and unsure why. How did it get so late? At least I only work one day and then have the full weekend off! Arty lost a baby tooth and I found it! Look at that little s...

It snowed today. Not a lot but enough to make it be officially winter. Brrr.... Dr. H and I bought “The Comfy” which is essentially Snuggie 2.0. I wore it over lunch today and I never wanted to t...

It’s too cold. Much winter. Supposed to warm up in the next few days, thankfully. New Doc (Dr. H) and I bonded over our dysfunctional tendencies and anxiety today. We talked about our desire to ...

I’m still worn out from yesterday. It often astounds me how long the effects of some social activities last. We did brunch for Aaron’s aunt Peg’s 70th birthday and that fancy restaurant his fami...
