Good News, bad news, good news, and good news

Ok! First the good news! Corrie Sock is back in stock! Yay! Now the bad news. I’ve managed to keep most of my prices steady for a long time, absorbing my rising costs. Yeah, I can’t do that anymore. Not if I want to do frivolous things like pay the mortgage and eat. So I …

Teeth: a sale

No, I’m not selling teeth. That would be weird. Ew. I’m writing this because my sweet bunny Roxanne is at the vet recovering from surgery. She had to have some of her teeth trimmed, and several teeth removed because they were infected at the roots. The infection was so bad, it had gone up into …

Ibuprofen and Wool

Usually on Thanksgiving Day I post a list of things I’m grateful for. I missed it this year. It’s not that I’m ungrateful. I’m grateful for many things. But it was hard to focus on anything except my back pain. It’s been aching for the past month. Wednesday, after realizing I’d been saying “if it …
