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 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 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

Semi-Quarantined Life Week 60

The world continues to move toward a "return to normal," though I still hope we don't just go back to the way things were. I believe some things will stick. We learned a lot, as we should, from the last 15 months. We've experienced fear, anger, grief, desperation, loneliness, and anxiety. But we've also experienced … Continue reading Semi-Quarantined Life Week 60

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-Quarantined Life (Week 58)

Oh I am perpetually behind on these. Life is busy these days. Since we are no longer totally locked down, there are the trips to grocery stores, patio dining with friends we've missed, and work is crazy busy. I think all of these things are good...somewhat stressful as I adjust...but they also really take away … Continue reading Semi-Quarantined Life (Week 58)
