Unsolicited irksome blogging advice

Disclaimer: If your inbox was recently flooded with a whole bunch of stupidity from my blog, sorry, that was me doing stuff. πŸ™„ I briefly contemplated pausing or getting rid of the blog altogether but then…I didn’t. Anyway some of the posts are back now that were taken off and…just shoot me. But I think I’m back to my former (ab)normal self now. So here we go, back to regular programming…

You know what irks me?

Many things irk me lately, but this email this morning I found particularly irksome.

Spousal nomenclature

Some time ago someone asked me some specifics about my partner. Specifically, they wanted to know if my partner was male, i.e. whether I was in a heterosexual relationship.

It was clear to me that this person had not read my blog for very long, because I think it’s obvious that we are living the life of a traditional family. I am the primary caregiver and he is the primary earner and we cohabit at the same address and raise the spawn together.

But it begs to ponder nomenclature, doesn’t it.

A day in my life – with lots of pictures

There were some issues with the neck brace delivery, and when it finally arrived, after I had gone to bed last night, it ended up not fitting right, nor was it comfortable. So much for accurate measurements.

I put it back in its box and will return it to Amazon. Thanks, but no thanks. I guess I’ll keep suffering. (woe is me blah blah blah)

Waiting, a(nother) selfie, three 3s and a birthday message

Earlier today, I was still waiting for my neck brace which was supposed to be delivered yesterday. Did they run out of boxes at Amazon? More likely people…I heard there are more covid outbreaks all over the GTA (Greater Toronto Area).

This virus isn’t going away anytime soon, is it…

Head weight and text neck

While I was suffering through this neck pain recently I kept wondering why my head feels so heavy. Which led me to contemplate the weight of a human head, and how it’s possible for it to feel heavier when there’s pain. So, naturally, I googled and learned a few things.

The first statistic that came up was that a human head weighs around 5 kg or 11 lbs. 😳

To put this in perspective, my son weighed 8 lbs 6 oz when he was born and his sister 2 lbs less.

So, technically, a newborn baby is less heavy than your head. 😯

Pain in the neck

I took my little desk back from the girl child. I gave it to her to use as a craft corner some time ago – but now, I need it back.

It has become obvious that my continued neck pain is partially caused by the un-ergonomic spaces I have to write in. Dining room tables, couches, beds…it’s causing me all sorts of grief, to the point of spasming last night that reduced me to tears.

I could not get relief in any position, not standing, not sitting, not lying down. I have a pillow filled with water, even that didn’t help. I never noticed before how heavy my head is. πŸ™„

I took Advil and Tylenol, then an hour later two more.
