Next up…Chicken

Day 54 I’ve been quiet for a while. A week actually. There just hasn’t been much to report.  There still isn’t much to report, but I worry if I put off writing much longer I won’t come back to it at all or at least not for a long time.  So here we are. There […]

Keep On Keeping On

Day 43 Another Monday.  I took a long weekend from writing the blog. I wrote other places, but didn’t really have anything fit for public consumption to say here.  The weekend was OK. I made my weekly trip to the grocery store to pick up my order.  I even braved another store, while wearing a […]

Eat More Pig

Day 30 Does anyone else have a ton of leftover ham from Easter? I ordered a small spiral ham on my last Wal-Mart pick up order, but they were out of the one I requested and gave me a much larger one. Ordinarily that would be ok – we would have more than 3 people […]

Breakfast and Boredom

Day 27 Another weekend. Have I mentioned the weekends are the hardest? Looks like, yes, I did – last weekend. I will reiterate – the weekends are the hardest. The lack of plans gets to me. Not that we had a lot of weekend plans before this, but we always COULD have weekend plans. So, […]

What’s Going On?

Day 18 Good morning, party people!  How are we doing today? Yeah, me too. This morning I have some burning questions rolling around my mind.  Since we don’t have anywhere to go or really anything to do – let’s discuss. Why have I started getting emails from random businesses I have never patronized?  For example, […]

What Now

Day 14 I don’t have much to say today, other than that the level of frustration I feel over the inability to have any clear path towards when this will all be over is at max capacity.  I understand that control is an illusion, but I like my illusions. I took a few hours today […]

Welcome Back

Day 13 Lucky 13.  Woohoo. We have reached the 2nd weekend of the stay at home/isolation/social distancing/no one is coming to save us coronavirus thingy. Today in our neck of the woods – pun intended – we are under severe weather threats. That seems about right. Nothing says Happy Birthday to You like a world-wide […]

The Gambler

Day 6 Happy Saturday, friends! I’m writing this post early today because I plan to disconnect from most technology (not music) for the rest of the day.  I’ve been awake since 5:30 a.m. because – well you know why – the dog! I didn’t bother to try to go back to sleep. I’ve been reading […]

Cry Me A River

Day 4 Hey, it’s Thursday!  My child just said she can’t wait to get back to school for P.E.  I don’t even know who we are anymore. P.E.???? What is happening?  I guess I need to find a ball and start throwing it at her or something.  I’m not even sure I have a ball. […]

Come Rain or Come Shine

Day 3 Good Morning! It’s another beautiful day in the forest under government recommended isolation.  Actually it is cold and rainy and dreary and gross. We slept in – even the dog until all of 5:45 a.m.!! I, again, was able to go back to sleep after taking him outside.  I set an alarm, but […]
