My diary has been here since 2005. I have always used it to reflect and process. Writing has been the best therapist for me, though I have actually had some excellent therapists, as well. I took a 12-year break and recently began using it as a launch pad for writing a memoir.

Until 6/23/2019, I was OnionGirl. See entry of the same date for why the change.

In Sickness and In Health

August 18, 2019
The love of my life had spine surgery on Thursday.  He now has a titanium cage between vertebrae C3 and C7.  By the time I got back to see him, he was barely starting to come out of the fog of anesthetic.  He had that brown goo on his neck and face that sanitizes the…

    August 14, 2019
    Drew goes in for surgery at 5:30 tomorrow morning.  We’ve got shit to do, today, so he chooses THIS MOMENT to go through the mountain of junk mail I’ve been complaining about for two years! 😤🤯🤬

  • Do Animals Have Souls?
    August 10, 2019
    Drew is home, and watching his usual parade of animal shows.  He's especially fond of those narrated by Sir David Attenborough.  (Drew insists that we use the "sir.") In a show we watched, today, an adult meerkat was teaching a very young meerkat how to hunt for ants.  This young one was not his ...

  • The Good News is….
    August 10, 2019
    Drew made it home about 9:00 PM.  He had luggage and food he'd picked up on the way home with him so I flung the door open, as soon as I heard his alarm beep.  I gave him just enough time to pull in his two suitcases, and I took the food back, and then…

  • Update on My Day
    August 9, 2019
    In case you're wondering, this is what I usually do, all day, just on Facebook. So it's 5:45 PM, and the plumber is not yet, here.  Drew's flight has been pushed back to 6:03, now, and that's assuming that they can get the plane to a gate.  He should have been here with me, by…

  • A Few Random Stuffs
    August 9, 2019
    Supposedly, someone will be here to fix my plumbing between 3 and 6 PM.  We'll see.   🙄 Drew landed in Boston from London, at 11:37.  His flight from Boston to Raleigh/Durham was supposed to leave at 2:22, and he'd be in Raleigh by 4:25, meaning he'd be home by about 5:30.  I was hoping we…

  • Not Quite 96 Hours
    August 9, 2019
    I feel 100% drained, this morning.  I took a shower, which was a feat, in itself, because last night, the toilet refused to flush.  When I called maintenance, they told me to "minimize my use" of plumbing until they could get someone out here, on MONDAY!  They expect me to avoid flushing or showe...

    I love this commercial, so much.  I don't know why.  It just tickles me. [embed]https://youtu.be/eqE9AwNfx3g[/embed]

  • 72-Hours Facebook Free (Sorta)
    August 8, 2019
    In the spirit of full transparency, I cheated a tiny bit, because I couldn't remember if my friend's birthday was August 7 or August 8.  So I got on FB to check, and learned that my youngest sister is in the midst of a family crisis.  Seriously, it was the first thing that came up,…

  • Thick Fog & Thin Skin
    August 7, 2019
    I think I may need to see a therapist again.  I may have said that recently, but my brain is glitchy so give me a break.  In any case, the things and the amount I am eating are out of control, and I've gone from getting out of bed by 7:00, and having the energy…
