A New Normal…

Many things can be said of this new normal, the thing that sticks with me the most is the lack of touching. No hugs (I miss hugs – I am a hugger), nobody wants paper maps or brochures and people will steal hand sanitizer (not lying on this one – liquid gold, I tell you) … Continue reading

Back to Work…

Well sort of. I received a call from one of the local tour companies asking if I wanted to help them out a couple days a week. I figured why not as long as I still qualify for unemployment I will do it. So this week coming up I am working a couple days. I … Continue reading

So Many Things

I guess I don’t understand the anger about staying home. I mean you pay for this place every month but you barely spend time there. Now you are actually getting the money out of your investment. I get it you want to paint and fix it up but you can’t. You want to start seeds … 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

What!?!?!

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

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

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

Two Weeks… What?!?!?!

It has been two weeks since everything started to shut down. Two weeks ago we were anxiously awaiting St. Patrick’s Day. This has been a Twilight Zone experience. Everything has shut down, we are all supposed to be practicing social distancing and people want to throw parties. Let’s get a couple food trucks in the … Continue reading
