Aunt Pittsburgh niblings

On Christmas Day, the Dunhoff niblings gave us a pretty cool gift – a coupon book for monthly get-togethers conceived out of their ideas of things to do with us. Ava is 13 and Jack is 10. We enjoy spending time with them quite a bit so it was a lovely gift. They handmade the […]

A Yeti Explosion

I presumed it was medical menopause. But as usual the doctors make it about my mental health, no matter the symptoms. I’m going to […]
