On Hiatus

Due to a combination of not being able to access my blog from work again (Damn Censors!) and other factors in my life that are starting to take up a lot of my free time, I am finding that for the time being I need to take a break from blogging.

Be back soon! Love you all! šŸ™‚


Under the Weather

It would appear that I am fighting a cold again.

So blogging will be at a minimum for a least the next few days.

Talk to you all soon!

Drips and Drabs

Hello My Dahlings!!

What?!! Could it be?!! An actual posting from TigerYogiji and not just some mindless fluff?!! Oh, Red Letter Day!

But seriously folks, sorry for the lack of newsworthy postings.

Not too much has been going on around the Ashram, and Tiamat has been behaving herself lately.

In other news, I am going to become an Auntie Uncle again in the Autumn, as the Darling Nephew’s mother is with child!

Everyone is hoping for a girl this time, but, we will see…

In other news, the illness that wouldn’t go away is just about gone. I still have the occasional cough in the morning, but, that is it. Hooray!

Friday night Husbandji and I went out to dinner with our next door neighbor (the one with all the dogs).Ā  She took us out to dinner in order to thank us for helping her out of a couple of tight spots in the past month. (It turns out that she and her husband are divorcing and he has moved out. So, while we are happy to help her outĀ  every now and then, we’re hoping that it doesn’t get to the point where she’s at our door constantly. She seems pretty independent, so we’re keeping our fingers crossed!)

Anyway, we went to dinner at a local Chili’s that had just opened in the neighborhood.

I was not impressed.

It was extremely noisy and the food was only so-so.

I won’t be going back there by choice…

In other news I spent most of yesterday afternoon doing our taxes, which, for a legally married gay couple in this country is yet another injustice foisted upon us by the conservative bigots in Washington!

Since we are married in Massachusetts, we can file jointly. But since the Fed doesn’t recognize our marriage, we each have to file as single.

BUT, there is a figure on the Federal return that we need for our state return!

SO! I have to do five returns!

1) A fake Federal joint return in order to get one figure!

2) A joint Mass return

3) A Fed return for me!

4) A Fed return for Husbandji

And 5) A Connecticut return for Husbandji because he works in CT!


I guess that’s all the news for now! After doing some chores this morning, we plan on a relaxing afternoon. Enjoy the rest of your weekend kids!

And, I’m Back!

Hello My Minions!

Did you miss me?

I am FINALLY starting to feel better after my month long bout with bronchitis, so hopefully things will get back to what appears as normal around here!

That’s all I have for now. This was just a quick pop in! I’ll post again in the next few days! TTFN!!

Still Under the Weather

Just a short note.

Both of our colds turned into Bronchitis, so it hasn’t been much fun around the Ashram.

I probably won’t be back online until after Christmas, so I hope that everyone has a happy holiday!!! TTFN!!

Under The Weather

Sorry that I haven’t been around much lately.

Both Husbandji and I have terrible colds.

We’re both on the mend, but, I’ll probably be offline for at least a few more days.

Everyone stay well, and I’ll talk to you soon…

Oh, This Crazy Internet

(I’ve chosen this image for no reason, other than I LOVE that shirt!)


Is this thing on?!!!

I guess that I need to start meandering around the Internets again and make my presence known once more!

Then my Minions shall come flocking!

Otherwise, I will not post the latest new Tiamat story!!


P.S. Ain’t I a Stinker?!!

Back on Hiatus


Hello My Minions

Things have gotten back to being crazy again, and as I suspected, my access at work didn’t last for long…

My father is about the same, although they are starting to have him walk more.

The problem is that he can’t seem to remember how to get himself out of his chair and do the walking from day to day.

It always seems as though he has to be reminded of how to get prepared for it.

So the rehab folk suspect that it might mean that he’s exhibiting some early signs of dementia.

They are going to give him a geriatric evaluation, and we’ll take it from there.

I’ll try to post again soon, but at this point I’m not sure when that will be.


Well, That Break Was Short…


Be very, very, quiet!

I’m somehow blogging from work right now!

Apparently the “Powers That Be” have relaxed their “Internet hold onĀ things” to some extent.

I don’t know how long this will last, so if I’m suddenly gone again for days at a time, you’ll know why!

So, anyway…

My father is still at the rehab facility. We had a somewhat sobering meeting with the staff last week, who basically told us that they aren’t sure if Dad is going to progress any further than he has so far.

It’s basically up to him now whether heĀ decides to “pull up his bootstraps” and give it his all, or give up and resign himself to the fact that he will not be coming home.

This past weekend we brought him home for a visit on Father’s Day, and that seemed to give him a renewed sense of purpose, so we’re hopeful.

But only time will tell…

In other news, there is no other news. Work has been keeping me busy, and I probably won’t know for sure if I have anything to worry about “job-wise” until late September. Woo-Hoo.

There is one little “Tiamat” giggle though!

The Darling Nephew has caught a case of head lice.

We’re assuming that he got it at school.

Tiamat was babysitting him prior to this being discovered, and while she was babysitting she put the Darling Nephew’s cap on her head.

So now she’s freaking out because she thinks that she had head lice too!

Husbandji has had to stop by her house every night for the last week to check her out.

So far, no lice. (Oh poo!)

I keep telling her that I’d be happy to shave her head for her!

Husbandji doesn’t appreciate my sense of humor for some reason…

That’s all for now! TTFN!!!

Taking a Break


Hello My Minions

I’m going to take a break from blogging for a little while.

Between work, and the ongoing situation with my father (we’re not sure now if he will be coming home…) I just don’t have the time or energy to devote to this blog right now.

It’s even become a struggle just to do some “filler” postings.

So, you’ll see me around your blogs once a week or so, but, I won’t be doing anything here until my life gets a little more settled.

Hopefully by September at the latest.

Talk to you all soon! MWAH!!!
