Putting on the Figurative Big Girl Panties

Putting on the Figurative Big Girl Panties

I've accomplished quite a bit for it being Monday. I got meds ordered for Boomer after a fat-finger typo on the online order form yesterday. Found a new primary care doctor and scheduled an appointment, and I got the ball rolling on getting an appointment with the...

Happy Thursday!

My left big toe is infected, somehow. In a normal body, it would be no big deal. But this body I have must make a show of everything. So it hurts to walk, and I keep thinking about the maskholes of...

Sale Pending

Good things are happening! We got an offer on the Urbana house and are scheduled to close by December 26. I mean it when I say we are all relieved. Starting the new year without that mortgage...

New Island, Who Dis?

We are nearly ready for the inspection on the remodeled space. That means we have water and electricity in all the necessary places. And that means my stress level has come down a notch or two more. We can cook, store perishables, shower, and set the thermostat. I...

We Have Running Water

Things kind of suck right now. I don't want to list all the reasons why, so you either have to take my word that it's worse than I let on or think me a drama queen with a penchant for vague-blogging. Honestly, I don't care which it is. What I will say is that I have...

We’re moved.

But we're at least a few days away from being settled. We're living out of boxes, waiting for countertops to be installed, etc. A better update soon, just wanted to let you all know we got here Thursday, our stuff got here Friday, and we lost Izzy for a few hours then...

Ten Days

I dont know who needs to hear this, but the next January 6 hearing is Thursday. Also, we move in ten days. TEN DAYS. After an unscheduled vet visit with Izzy (she's fine ) and a couple of chronic illness flares, we didn't make it to the U-Haul place down the block to...
