Trail Hazing

“Why every time we go somewhere with Beautiful Beastie does it feel like we’re being hazed?” Rogue’s not wrong. We went to Rock Castle Gorge with her last weekend. Where she and Tiny Brazilian quickly took off. At their beast pace. While Rogue and I followed behind. At our normal human pace. Where we traversed … Continue reading Trail Hazing

Glimmers of Hope

Thank you so much. I’ll miss you guys! “…ok…you…have a nice day…” Look. I’ve spent a lot of time with the DMV folks lately. And my socials are a little more awkward than usual. Because New Job. But the two hours I spent with them yesterday morning. Felt special. It started with rejection. Again. Because … Continue reading Glimmers of Hope

Accommodation Workout

Sooo…there’s a “ring of fire…” just hovering over southwest Virginia? And…we’re not…we don’t want to talk about end times yet…? I mean, it is summer, in Virginia, so I guess that makes sense...

Drop In Neighbors and Rock Castle Gorge

An hour. It has taken me a full hour. To assemble this fucking office chair. Maybe two. It’s all an obscenities filled blur. This is not a single person job. And yes. Those are my pajama bottoms in a heap on the floor. Shit got hectic for a while. Those holes…just wouldn’t line up. And … Continue reading Drop In Neighbors and Rock Castle Gorge

Blue Ridge Virtual Double Marathon

13 minutes. That’s how long it took me to get out of bed. Down the stairs. And to the coffee. And then several more minutes to figure out how to transport the coffee to my chair without the full use of my left leg. Because my dumbass thinks she’s still 43. Or however old I … Continue reading Blue Ridge Virtual Double Marathon

Spring Break From Work

I have spent the past 15 hours either sleeping. Or collecting food. For tomorrow. I've done precious little actual human communication. Because I've spent most of the past week doing too much of the wrong kind of communication. Arguing with the wrong people over the wrong things. Or trying desperately to communicate with the right … Continue reading Spring Break From Work
