Covid Life Food Diary Week 82

Okay, so it's bombard the site with catching up time. But we are also getting less and less quarantined, at least for now. Who knows? Currently, talk is that the next variant may be a game changer or would you call that a reset? People say it won't go back to full lock down, but … Continue reading Covid Life Food Diary Week 82

Semi-Quarantined Life Week 79

At this point, I can't even really say we are quarantined. I mean, we are still super cautious, but we go to stores and shop in person, our youngest is in school in-person most of the time. We've actually even started socializing a little, with our vaccinated friends of course. Hell, I'm even going to … Continue reading Semi-Quarantined Life Week 79

Semi-Quarantined Life Week 78

Well, yes, we are still being careful. But we are going out more. I'm even volunteering at a festival next week. I'm also slightly relieved that it may rain. And the kid is back to in-person school, sort of. I'd explain that more, but that's a whole other blog topic. Let's talk food. Thursday (9/23) … Continue reading Semi-Quarantined Life Week 78

Semi-Quarantined Life Week 76

I'm almost caught up to the present week. Of course, I'll commit to keeping them current. But we'll all know I am probably lying...or just wishful thinking. But hey, we all just do the best we can! This week saw some food victories and of course, some less than victorious moments. Thursday (9/9) - We … Continue reading Semi-Quarantined Life Week 76

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 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
