This post is coming out a bit later because life has been very interesting the last couple of weeks. I'll talk more about that in Quarantine Life Week 21. But wow! 20 weeks in quarantine. That's five months! At this point, I think we have adjusted to this lifestyle. We've stopped talking about when things … Continue reading Quarantine Life Week 20
Today a very strange thing happened. My husband asked me what I was thinking for dinner. This was late in the afternoon. I replied I hadn't even thought about it. He checked my temperature. I realized I had not even planned anything for this week. Other than taking my sourdough starter out to reactivate it … Continue reading I didn’t have a dinner plan
Well, almost 5 months into this quarantine life. It really hasn't been that bad. I'm an introvert anyway, and I'm agoraphobic, so really, this is the life I kind of would think I would enjoy.

It may not feel like it all of the time, but you have to remember that sometimes raising kids … Continue reading Two Steps Forward, One Step Back
Falling behind on these journal entries these days. I'm not even sure they are that interesting anymore, but I keep telling myself they'll make for an interesting read 20 years from now. I may be lying to myself. Thursday (7/9), I didn't take any pictures. Okay, I took one picture of the 10 year old's … Continue reading Quarantine Week 16
Missing my daughters has probably been the hardest part of quarantine. We finally decided to try a socially distanced meal as both my older daughters always appreciate my cooking. It was better than I could have expected.
As states open more and ours, in particular, continue to see rising case numbers, we are not any more inclined to join the masses who seem to be pretending the pandemic is over. I empathize with business owners who are having to make tough decisions once again on how and when to reopen. I lean … Continue reading Quarantine Week 15
We are all feeling a lot of feelings about the pandemic and the future. My feelings have been getting the best of me lately.
