Quarantine Life Week 50

Wow. We are approaching a year. My husband gets his first vaccine shot tomorrow. I'm excited and terrified all at once. I should be able to get it by the end of the month. Also terrifying! But this series of posts could come to an end. I'll have to think of some other way to … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 50

Anyway, we're … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 46

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

Sometimes It All Falls Apart and That’s OK

I had a good day by all accounts. I got some work done. I felt good about the work. Our country welcomed in a new administration with no major incidents, something that has been worrying me for a while. That administration made some policy moves that I welcome. Everything was going just fine. Then I … Continue reading Sometimes It All Falls Apart and That’s OK
