my big sick.

I know that I’m sick. So does my family. So do my friends. So do all of you. I write about it. I take steps to deal with it. I’ve had to give up my work because of it. I’m having to regrow my hair due to it. However, in the past two years¬† it…

melting in the Alabama heat, eating the BEST food, and feeling a little bit stronger.

Our beloved weatherman, James Spann, just posted on his Facebook that, by in the end of the month, we are due for a major weather pattern shift here in Alabama, bringing some actual Fall weather. All this extremely heat intolerant spoonie can say is “Jesus be praised!” because it was literally 99 degrees in the…
