Happy Easter

I want to start by saying it doesn’t feel like Easter. I am used to an incredibly busy weekend trying to find brunch reservations for people who forgot it was Easter. This year it is me with my leg brace sitting on a heating pad, trying to figure out if I am actually going to … Continue reading

What Day Is It?

I can honestly say, I have no idea. I have reached the point in this social isolation that I have no idea what day it is, when the last time I wore pants or jeans was, or when I last wore makeup (the last one I know March 20th). I find going to the mail … Continue reading

Homemade Pizza Dough – No Yeast

One of the most surprising things to come out of this pandemic is how many people are apparently baking bread. I put yeast and flour on the grocery list because I wanted to teach the kids how to bake bread during this. The hubs came home empty handed, no flour or yeast to be found. … Continue reading

“Vintage” LEGO Building

I personally balk at the “vintage” part, however Booga said, “I can’t do vintage LEGO builds (after looking at the instructions).” The set I was looking at was 6393 – The Big Rig Truck Stop, I built this so many times in my childhood it wasn’t even funny. This was my brother’s favorite LEGO set. … Continue reading


I have been laid off from my job since March 20th. I know it wasn’t because of my performance or anything I did, it doesn’t make it any easier. I have been watching and reading far more local news in the process. Adjusting to this new normal has brought forth many questions such as are … Continue reading

March the longest month ever…

The first two weeks of March flew by as they usually do. The last two weeks have been about 2,000 days long. I guess that is what happens when you have to stay in one place and are not supposed to go anywhere. People panic buying toilet paper, water, and every milk, chicken, eggs and … Continue reading

Home Economics

I admit I don’t have the best record in Home Economics. My 7th grade year, I got a C because my classmates forgot to turn off the oven and almost caught the school on fire (I was home sick with strep – I happened to be on oven duty that week). My 8th grade year, … Continue reading

Social Distancing…

We have been very good at social distancing. Only one of us goes to the store, we wipe everything down, remove all exterior plastic and boxes. Talk to neighbors across the street, not letting my kids play with others. It has been hard and my kids keep asking when will everything go back to normal? … Continue reading

Making People Laugh

With the COVID-19 social distancing, I decided I wanted to make people in my neighborhood laugh. Many people are putting ready bears in their windows, I decided I wanted to do something funny. We were watching SpongeBob the other night, we got to the episode where Patrick needs to build a stable to house Mystery, … Continue reading

I Miss People…

My daughter said it best this morning when I asked if they wanted to go pick up lunch at the bus stop. “Yes! I miss people.” When it is said like that, so do I. During any given day I speak to 20-100 people a day, depending on how busy we are. I miss people, … Continue reading
