Oh COVID Christmas


I don’t have it, and everyone I know is safe and healthy, I just can’t think of another description for this surreal year/holiday. I also don’t have a ton to say so have more pics than anything else. Although I wouldn’t really call it hoarding, so much as buying more than normal due to being […]

nine months, I could have had a baby!


today marks nine months working from home. Our office announced it on Wednesday, March 11 and we had a transition day on the 12th to gather what we’d need “for a week” before starting to work from home on Friday the 13th. I quit tracking the weeks when I ran out of fingers, and nine […]

Is this over yet?


Not a serious question. We all know it’s a long way from over, but I’m really beginning to feel this acutely. This was A WEEK.  And it seemed universally so. I was on a working group call early Friday afternoon that’s usually chatty and the chair noticed we were all quiet. I volunteered that it […]
