Operation Superstorm had to make an emergency detour, but we all made it -- and I'm so glad we did.
I lost my service dog this week. Storm is alive and somewhat well; I didn’t lose Stormlight, but I lost my service dog. I had to pull her from training yesterday permanently. All I can say is that this hurts. It all hurts, it aches, it squeezes my heart and I feel like if… Continue reading Square Negative-One
It's been a very, very busy month or two. Apologies to anyone who enjoyed reading the blog more regularly -- these past two months have involved a kidney infection (me) and a move (all of us!).

I think that everyone else seemed to be making such a big deal of it and turning it into such an obstacle… Continue reading What’s In Your Medicine Cabinet?
Stormlight, Storm bright, Storm gets me through the night, wish I may, wish I might get this fucking process right. That's the version I find myself thinking more often than not lately.
