Rex Update // 1 week after 2nd surgery

It’s been a week since my puppy’s 2nd surgery. He’s doing well now, but it started off pretty rough. We had some cold weather in the days leading up to his surgery, but he seemed to be doing pretty well. Two days before he was scheduled, he was active and playful and fine. We went…

in which my backyard freezes over.

Missouri had a little ice storm over the weekend. I actually got to stay home from work on Friday because campus closed, which seriously never happens. By the time I got these pictures everything was starting to melt, but it was still really pretty. I’m trying to take more pictures this year, because I haven’t…

December Wrap-Up

events – A building on campus caught fire. It was accidental and nobody got hurt, but it was a huge fire that I could see across campus, and they had to cut the power to our building for a few hours. – The semester is over! Which means that I’ll be taking time off teaching…

6th Blogiversary!

October Wrap-Up

events – My Avatar/Korra unanswered questions post is now my most-viewed post of all time. I don’t know how this happened but it’s been getting a weird amount of views lately. I think it’s time to do more Korra posts. Strike while it’s hot. (Also it was announced that Korra comics will be out next…

Rex Update (4 weeks after surgery)

It’s been a month since Rex’s surgery. We are halfway through his recovery! Here’s a quick list of updates: He graduated to 7-minute walks. Which means he gets to go to the park twice a day (albeit a really short trip)! He has started to kick his legs again after he pees/poops. He used to…

September Wrap-Up

events – I got resorted on Pottermore. It had apparently been a very long time since I was last on and they completely redid everything. I had the option to keep my original house (Ravenclaw), but I decided to get resorted to see if it had changed. And I got sorted into Gryffindor, which I…
