Love/Hate Update 11/21

Sorry I’ve been so scarce lately. I’ve been having a lot of health issues, including pain in my fingers, which is making it difficult to type a lot of the time. Once everything’s been officially diagnosed I will share what’s going on. I really didn’t want to, but it’s starting to look like my health issues are a bit like rock and roll, a.k.a they’re here to stay. (Reference to a dorky 50’s song I’m sorry to say I’ve heard!)

Here’s a super quick Love/Hate Update, since typing can be torture these days.


-herbal tea

-snow! When I’m watching it, that is. It becomes less pretty when you have to drive or walk in it.



-when my cat sits on my head while I’m listening to my mindfulness recordings. Once you have a feline on your head, the whole thing becomes a lot less relaxing and mindful. Just saying.

-when people tell me I’m “too young” to have chronic health issues, as if I don’t wish the conditions would have asked my permission before camping out in my body

Really Hate:

-when people tell me I can’t be a feminist and shop at a craft store.  I don’t even know how to respond to that one.

-when people tell me I “don’t look sick.” Ugh. I can’t even.

Okay, that’s about all my fingers have energy for right now. I probably won’t write again until after Thanksgiving so I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend, and I’ll write again when I can!

Love/Hate Update

Love/Hate Update 11/8


-”Poirot”. If you haven’t seen it, you need to!

-”The Big Bang Theory”. Rock, paper, scissors, lizard, Spock!

-The fact that the hubby and I are sloooowly unearthing the living room under all the boxes

-my fabulous red converter mittens


-Orthodontia. I’m 26, and I would love to lose this classic hallmark of adolescent angst, but nope. My teeth are strong-willed and free-form enough that I will probably be wearing my dental device of torture every night as long as I’m hanging out on this side of eternity. I don’t care what the dentist tells me, it is not a “standard upper Hawley retainer.” It’s a dental device of torture. Let’s call it what it is, people! If at some point I lose the battle for the separation of teeth and another set of metal railroad tracks, I’d totally be able to walk into a high school and be mistaken for a student. Gah.

-when people complain excessively about having colds. I’m still trying to figure out how much I want to share publicly about my health issues, but I’ve been through enough that my patience for people’s complaints about colds is nonexistent. If you get this bent out of shape over a cold, you wouldn’t last ten seconds in my life, I can tell you that right now.

-just about everything involving Kiera Knightley. She recently posed topless in the name of feminism. That’s a surefire way to stay off my good side. I will be blogging more about this in the future because this is about as backwards as it gets.

-feeling like I have to justify all the ups and downs in my spiritual life over the past year or so. I have all these questions and ups and downs because I actually use my brain and think about stuff.

Okay, I think that’s about it. Have a wonderful weekend!
