Snarkasm for Sanity

      No Comments on Snarkasm for Sanity

Pretty much the first thing I saw this morning was a message window waiting from bat. There were two words, two words I knew I’d see before I even clicked the window — ‘mom’s gone’. We’ve lost our mother, yo. Not my blood maternal, but the more important built me up and made me feel worthwhile one. I’m still processing… Read more »

While the shawl is proceeding along nicely, I’ve decided that I really want to finish my hat and get it out of the bottom of my bag. I’m loving the shawl because it’s fun and varied, but also being amused that suddenly ‘normal’ knitting holds less appeal. That’s not been a problem before. Well.

I might finish the knitting, but then there’s still the sewing. It’s two hours until bedtime though, so who knows. I’d love to be able to finish it enough… Read more »

Pink is not a colour I normally purchase. In raising two daughters, I have been overly mindful of things like the pink tax, of how often those overpriced pink good are of poorer quality, of the pressure on children to fit into the perceived gender binary (never mind that gender is a social construct, while biological sex is all over… Read more »
