Summer was the best and then House Russell slammed into Sad Girl Autumn with the ferocity of a Super Dave stunt.
Yeah. Like that.
I’m going to start with good things..
> I had a birthday!
> WM and I went to see Hamilton in Philly and it was everything I’d hoped and more
> Mom and I went on a cruise to the Bahamas and it was amazing
> Nephews A and B are still the world’s greatest kids
> Ollie and Murphy continue to bring joy and destruction
> I still enjoy my job!
And now, the rest…
My mother-in-law had a health emergency (ugh)
> But recovered (yay!)
>>However has some more hurdles to go through (ugh)
>>>Including multiple surgeries (ugh)
WM’s school moved into a new building (yay!)
>Which is great because the high school population was split among 4 buildings (ugh)
>>But the moving was stressful (ugh)
My father had a health emergency (ugh)
> And had surgery (ugh!)
>>But claims to be fine (yay?)
I had a routine mammography (no big deal)
> And was called back for more scans (ugh)
>>And had a mammogram assisted breast biopsy of suspicious tissue (holy shit wtf?!)
>>>Which turned out to be benign! (ohthankgod yay!)
>>>>Yet, I am still mind-fucked by the whole thing. Still. (sad ugh)
Ollie had a cough (ugh)
> Which is resolving with meds (yay)

>>>Which should calm down eventually (yay)
>>>>With frequent shampooing (ugh)
Our refrigerator died (Jesus wept)
>But the freezer still works (yay!)
>>And we had the money available to buy a new one (yay!)
>>> But man every time we get a savings account going something breaks (boo)
>>>>Literally, the money has been draining from our lives since the $900 car repair in August…
Harry-the-fish-who-Lived died (weep!)
>Along with every other goddam fish in his tank – like, within minutes of each other (WTF?)
>>Except one fish, who now has a grizzled war-vet look to him. He’s seen some shit. (okay?)
Alex Trebek is likely going to die soon. The country is a mess. And tonight, Molly the Jeep threw up a Check Engine light.
We are in a season of malaise. It feels like our household has a low-grade fever that isn’t going away.
Aren’t you glad I started blogging again?
