Face Mask

The low-grade fever I mentioned in my last post? It lasted TEN WHOLE DAYS. I never did get any respiratory symptoms, though I did have a “bounding pulse” (where you can feel your pulse throughout your whole body) and the occasional terrible headache. The pulse thing lasted for a couple of days after the fever… Read more > Comments Off on Face Mask

Schrödinger’s Coronavirus

We are, like many other people around the world, holed up in our house and have been since last Wednesday. However, what I did not expect during this quarantine was to have developed an intermittent, very mild fever. I feel mostly fine during the day and my temperature is always normal in the morning. Toward… Read more > Comments Off on Schrödinger’s Coronavirus

· It seems like every time it rains or snows, our internet sucks for like three days. I don’t know why this happens because it’s supposedly cable, not satellite, but it’s irritating.  Theoretically Ting high-speed fiber internet is coming to my tiny town and I signed up to get it once it’s here, but I… Read more > 1 Comment >

A lot has been going on these past few months! Wesley started Kindergarten and it’s been so fun seeing all the schoolwork he brings home. Over the course of a couple months, I read the first three Harry Potter books to him for his bedtime stories and gosh, is there anything better than sharing interests… Read more > 2 Comments >

Nine Inch Nails

Daniel bought us tickets to Nine Inch Nails for my birthday, way back in June, and tonight was the show! IT WAS SO GOOD. They had two ladies doing backup vocals and it was not at all what I would have expected from NIN, but they were phenomenal! Excellent voices. The bass player reminded me… Read more > Comments Off on Nine Inch Nails

We got our first snow of the year today! I spent the morning laying in bed (on my new sheets, which are amazing) reading The Wise Man’s Fear and peeking out the window at the snow. There’s not a lot (and I have no pictures) but it was a fun way to start the day…. Read more > Comments Off on Snow

VBAC Inspiration

Lately, I’ve been collecting VBAC birth stories and anecdotes that speak to me on some level, and I’d like to share some of them here. My new celebrity VBAC hero: Kate Winslet I’ve always really liked Kate Winslet; she seems very down-to-earth and funny and normal. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that she had… Read more > 1 Comment >

Whining about Netflix again

After stumbling across this “Post-Play” entry on the Netflix blog, I was compelled to write another whiny entry regarding the Netflix interface on the Xbox. According to the Netflix blog, here’s what Post-Play is: When you finish watching an episode of a TV show, we’ll minimize the credits and tee-up the next episode. If you… Read more > Comments Off on Whining about Netflix again

More Buffy, HP Birthday, Hi-Kid, Computer, Life

More Buffy (Follow-up to my Buffy post) I’ve now read through Season 8 and (what’s been released of) Season 9 of the comics (though… I read S9 first and want to go back and re-read now that I’ve finished S8) and if you are a Buffy fan, I’d recommend them. They’re totally outlandish but it’s… Read more > 2 Comments >

Thoughts on Buffy

A while ago, I was searching for a new TV series to watch and I impulsively settled on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Because I was familiar with the characters despite having never seen an episode (being subscribed to Seventeen magazine while Buffy was airing probably didn’t hurt) and because everyone is all big on Joss… Read more > 5 Comments >

Wesley’s 2nd Birthday

Wesley turned two on March 25, and we had a big, dinosaur-themed party for him! We had pizza, chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, and fruit salad with a watermelon carved like a Tyrannosaurus Rex! (I followed this tutorial.) —— Wesley has been so funny and so crazy lately; I suppose it’s part of the… Read more > 5 Comments >
