Surviving

I have this thing where I don’t realize I’m not OK until I get the thing back that was making everything OK that I didn’t realize was making it OK. My not-OK-ness usually manifests by me collapsing on the couch in the evenings, too apathetic to do anything important to me. Mind you, I don’t […] more

Apparently I adult by buying linens

If this was any year but this year, there’s a good chance I would be out running in the darkness right now. Rio Del Lago 2020 would have been today. I didn’t finish my 100 mile race in February, so likely I would need a qualifier with time running out. LIKE EVERY YEAR. With a […] more

Oh yeah, that’s broke

This is what your toe looks like when you slam the edge of a wooden table on your toes when standing on concrete. There was a lot of cussing. And yelling. No crying because it hurt too damn much. You know what I mean? I knew I had broken some toes, I just didn’t know […] more

Then “last weekend I…” At this point we will settle on “recently” as I have been drowning in work shifts and thwarted by stupid word press problems and just now getting this published. So anyways. In the not so […] more

Mel tries a new thing

On Saturday I sorta kinda did my first triathlon. Except it was virtual. And with the shut-downs a swim wasn’t an option so it was a run-bike-run event.
