Semi-Quarantined Life (Week 59)

I am getting more and more comfortable with going back into the world. We are still wearing masks regardless of the new CDC recommendations. I think I mentioned that I might stay in one for a while. But I am relaxing about it a bit. I'll go outside in areas I'm unlikely to run into … Continue reading Semi-Quarantined Life (Week 59)

Semi-Quarantine Life Week 57

Well, we are officially living a less quarantined life. We go to grocery stores (not that often), and I've been doing some patio dining (again, not that often), but we are still being cautious. Our 11-year-old is a bit from being able to be vaccinated, so we are still a little protective. But we are … Continue reading Semi-Quarantine Life Week 57

Quarantine Life Week 56 – Hopefully Our Last Week of Full Lockdown

That title alone is anxiety producing. Don't get me wrong, I am excited. I am also very nervous about what life looks like when we can exit the bubble. I mean, we're only going to be doing a partial exit for now because of our youngest daughter, but things are going to change, and it … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 56 – Hopefully Our Last Week of Full Lockdown

Quarantine Life Week 55 – Coming Out

Well, the time we've both feared and looked forward to is coming, and it's coming quickly. My husband, middle daughter, and I got our second shots this week (April 11-18). Owen got his on Monday and so will be considered fully vaccinated April 26th, and Katie and I got ours Thursday, so will be good … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 55 – Coming Out

Quarantine Life Week 49

Every week, it looks like the world is moving toward opening up more. While I still have some mixed feelings on this, I am looking forward to cookouts and dinner parties. I have an entire "This shit is over" party plan. It's gonna be epic. But for now, let's talk about this week's cooking. Thurs … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 49

Quarantine Week 48

Spring is almost here! We are supposed to have 60 degree whether this coming week. I am super excited. Living in Chicago, I know it could still snow again, but I think it's definitely close to time to pull that grill out of storage and get myself set up downstairs for some summer grilling and … Continue reading Quarantine Week 48

Quarantine Life Week 46

Okay, I'm not really meeting my goal for posting this year. But I've found myself struggling for time to sit down. I spend more time working these days, which is great, but I need to develop a better blogging schedule, as I truly do enjoy rambling on and hoping someone is reading it. Anyway, we're … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 46

Quarantine Week 44

Another week down. Numbers are getting better here, but I guess there's a long way to go to having enough vaccines available. Having K back home has been interesting and mostly good. It also means you'll get to see some of her cooking, as she loves it about as much as I do. She's agreed … Continue reading Quarantine Week 44
