Half not bad, or not half bad

During Spinzilla last year, I spun 7370 yards. This year I spun 3688 yards. That’s just 3 yards more than half of last year’s total. I would be totally bummed out, but I’m having problems with my left ulnar nerve*, so my left pinky and ring finger are both numb and painful (yeah, you’d think …

So…I realized I haven’t really been spinning that much in the last several months because …

Time to register for Spinzilla!

I have no idea how it got to be September already. I think I lost a month. Wouldn’t it be awesome if we could get all the time we’ve lost back at a lost and found? Anyway, it really is September, and that means Spinzilla registration is open! You want to sign up for Team …

Not in the Plans

After putting it off for over a year, I finally made an appointment for an eye exam. I have no idea why I kept putting it off, but I was getting tired of things being blurry so I finally made the call. I had my exam Friday. See that dark spot? That is a shadow. …
