Humanity v. Ferrets

In the apartment justice system, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups.  These are there stories. SEPTEMBER 6, 2017: In the late hours of September 6th, Kara Peterson (6mths old) was put on cage arrest after neighbors noticed strange accumulations of pens around the premises following a bizarre streak of writing…

Thanksgiving With Family

Ever since I was trained in Processing at work (yay!), I have been getting a lot of extra hours – some weeks, almost doubling my regular part-time paycheck.  This has been great for buying Christmas gifts, but not so great for traveling.  We’re not entirely sure how, but I was not signed up to work…

Declutter & Simplify

I am a chronic packrat. I have always been a packrat. I would clean out the whole of my bedroom and still, somehow, keep mountains of junk around me because it made me feel some form of joy. I felt a lot of joy in having physical things. Getting rid of old things meant I…

How Krissye’s Garden Grows

I… am really a terrible gardener.  I am.  If our rose bush didn’t have roots that reached into our water system (not good for our water system…), every living thing in our yard would have died. Then, on luck, I watered things after about three weeks without bothering.  Everything was dead and stem’y and even…

The Ferrets – 8 months

The Strip & Shark Reef Aquarium

Now, I had 2 main goals for this trip to Las Vegas: 1, see my sister that I haven’t seen since Christmas and, 2, see the aquarium.  (See dolphins, specifically, but I was misled and the aquarium did not have dolphins.  I think it’s the Siegfried & Roy show that has dolphins.) After spending about 30-40…

Las Vegas Museum of Natural History

Day 2 of our Vegas Trip, Rys and I set out early to see the Museum while my sister slept in.  The museum was much bigger than I thought and, while nice, I’ve come to learn that our museums and zoos here in the big city are actually very good. The museum opened with a large…
