On this 31st of October, my exercise was shoveling snow. We got a lot of snow. I would say five or six inches? It was a weird Halloween feeling to spend the morning shoveling snow, come in and put my jack o'lantern earrings on, and hea... Read more

Today is the day I dread all year round. I am at work. My parents are visiting. They are doing yard work at my home. There is no convincing them not to. It's better for me not to be there while they do this, because I will lose my temp... Read more
