I’m done with today, y’all

Woke up in not the best headspace. Went to put on my #1 favorite oversized snuggly sweater for comfort, and discovered it shrank in the wash. Cried to LordSparrow about the sweater for a while, then about the fact that I’m such a damn people pleaser that I end up burnt out and feeling completely unappreciated (the reason for waking up in a funk to begin with). Then my mom group-texted us suggesting this GREAT! idea to take an e-bike tour for my dad’s birthday in two weeks despite the fact that TeenSparrow has never ridden a bike in her life and is currently in physical therapy for her knees. We reminded her of these things, but she’s convinced kiddo will be fine because they’re motorized bikes and she can try it out before we go. So now it’s on us to say no while she’s telling us “it would mean a lot” and “he’d be so happy”. Thank dog for LS, he decided to take the hit of telling her he doesn’t think it’s a good idea while trying to come up with compromises like letting TS use an electric scooter since they’re all over. I just don’t have the emotional energy for this.

Oh, and of course “go back where you came from”. Obviously the dude was...

Ferret update Ferret update

Spring is ok! We just wrapped up at the vet. Everyone there was amazing and instantly fell in love with him. He did rip one nail clean off, but the doc says the nail bed looks good and it should grow back as long as he doesn’t screw with it. We have some anti-inflammatory and an antibiotic to head off...

My poor baby ferret My poor baby ferret

It looks like he managed to rip off one claw entirely and split two others!!! I am despondent! He was playing in our bedroom, and it looks like he caught one claw on the doggy stairs and split the others trying to free himself. Based on the blood trail, he then retreated deep into my closet. I had to trim...

We got a diagnosis! We got a diagnosis!

And it’s exactly what I thought it was! My suspicions were correct, TeenSparrow and I have EDS. Not like she’s the freaking poster child for it or anything. Once the dots connected for the doctor, she actually said “oh my gosh, you are just the archetype”. This is so validating. It explains EVERYTHING we have both dealt with our entire...
