Semi-Quarantined Life Week 74

Well, school has started, and we are in the super nervous crowd of parents. We've kept the kid pretty well locked down since March of 2020 with lots of virtual play dates to try to maintain the socialization. And with schools opening across the country and seeing some of the rate spikes, we are preparing … Continue reading Semi-Quarantined Life Week 74

Semi-Quarantined Life Week 73

I'm really hoping that "semi" doesn't need to be dropped in the title to these soon. My husband's job is talking about them going back to working half the week from home to expand spacing. But this week, the FDA gave final approval to the vaccine, and now businesses and government authorities are starting to … Continue reading Semi-Quarantined Life Week 73

Semi-Quarantined Week 72

Fall cannot come soon enough. I usually kind of like the summer. But Covid-life has taken away a lot of the things I like about it. We aren't going to ballgames...not that the team doesn't suck this year anyway. And we don't go to the beach because of crowds. And the festivals are all mostly … Continue reading Semi-Quarantined Week 72

Semi-Quarantined Life Week 71

Well, the second week of August was a little rough. My Katie, her boyfriend, and his sister all tested positive for Covid. Fortunately, she didn't really have any symptoms. He was pretty sick. They are vaccinated, so these were break-through cases. But they are okay now as I write this post. And my husband, myself … Continue reading Semi-Quarantined Life Week 71

Semi-Quarantined Life Week 70

Life was still briefly a little more "normal"...I hate that word now. I don't want normal. But, I do like being able to pop into my local grocery store. And I like not paying all those delivery fees that come with a total lockdown situation. And at this point, numbers had started increasing and we … Continue reading Semi-Quarantined Life Week 70

Semi-Quarantined Life Week 69

Can you believe July is almost over? Schools are going to be starting soon. And there is much debate across the country on how that should look. I won't jump into the politics of said debate. I will just say that, for myself, I dread school starting, and I'm somewhat glad that Chicago starts a … Continue reading Semi-Quarantined Life Week 69

Semi-Quarantined Life Week 68

I don't know. Should I change the title again? I've been toying with something along the lines of Living with Covid, cause I think that is what we are all going to be doing for a while. We're not really quarantined currently, though with the way things have been going, that could definitely happen again. … Continue reading Semi-Quarantined Life Week 68

Semi-Quarantined Life Week 65

We did a little traveling this week, which always changes up our normal eating routine. However, we should get some credit that we made a trip to Arkansas that did not include Taco Bell. Seriously folks, I don't know what it is about traveling south, but we always end up at a Taco Bell. I'm … Continue reading Semi-Quarantined Life Week 65
