Snark-in-the-box

Mailbox, that is. The silence from the north was finally broken this past week. I opened my mailbox and took out what at first just looked like a large wad of flyers and coupons, but then a postcard slipped out of the pile. On one side was a map depicting Key West, Florida. On the... Continue Reading →

Dogs and Cats and POTS, oh my!

My four days of solitude passed much faster than I would have liked. On the first day, my biggest accomplishment was to trigger some sort of POTS episode that almost made me pass out (more on this in a bit) and by the second day, I felt guilty for sitting around and embarked upon one...

Plus picking up and dropping off the rental car. I am beyond exhausted,... Continue Reading →

I guess I’ll see what tomorrow brings
