Last Night Out With Justine

Our sweet Justine is leaving the nest 😦 In a few days, she is going on vacation with her friend and then she will be going back home to France. It was SO nice to hang out tonight, all four of us together ❤  I love these people more than words can say.  Please don’t leave us Justine; I miss you already!!

Struggling For Words

I have been really struggling to find my words lately, and it has been incredibly disheartening. Writing has always been something I’ve enjoyed and something in which I could seek clarity and solace, but these days even sending text messages is a chore. There is so much I want to say, but the thoughts slip through my fingers before I can put pen to paper. I’ve noticed this struggle to form cohesive sentences has gotten worse since my last concussion (lucky #7). Even speaking takes more mental energy than it has in days prior. I’m really hoping this cloudiness is temporary…

Is This Because I Named You Terd?

Throwback to when I found my duck Terd Jr. in the toilet.

He & Squirt were in their cage in the bathroom because maintenance was coming soon to do a carpet inspection. (Yes, I was indeed hiding two ducks in my apartment– that is beside the point.)

I still vividly remember hearing a loud splashing noise & running in to find…well…this.

Don’t let his little face fool you: he was not deprived! I gave him baths & let him swim all the time. But he had a condition called Angel Wing which meant I had to wrap his wing & he couldn’t get it wet for a few days. I suppose this was his form of rebellion & teenage angst. Stinker.. 😉

And this, my friends, is why we cannot have nice things…
