About MeI'm Mal. This blog is about my life. I like to tell stories about my dog and cat a lot. I love to sew and cook; I'm learning how to roller skate and do tricks on the trampoline; I love math, have a university degree in it, do it for a living, but really suck at arithmetic. I'm also having a baby at the end of the summer, so I like to talk/freak out about that a lot too.

Between cottaging and touring Niagara Wine country, getting a new job and vet bills, I’ve had a pretty full second half of summer. And people keep waxing poetic about the end of summer, but it’s still hot, dammit, and I’m … Continue reading
I haven’t posted much lately. I’ve been feeling off, physically; mostly I’m just really tired all the time, and having weird dreams. But I’m trying not to let that get to me too much, because….it’s a lot easier to get out … Continue reading
