Tweet I am sitting, lounging, really, on my couch, my computer on my lap. My knee is aching with all the fury of a worn out joint begging for a replacement 30 years too soon. Thanks to the painkiller I took, I am tired. And grumpy. My not-quite-fifteen-year-old cat perches on the couch next to […]

Tweet It was Thursday. Dance class night. Unfortunately, dance class was cancelled, because, well, these Hoosiers, they’re pretty afraid of winter weather. And word on the street was we were in for a doozy of a storm  (even though all we’d seen up to that point was a little slushy rain). So, in an attempt […]
