Losing

Four years ago when I woke in the wee hours of the morning after the 2016 presidential election to find out Donald Trump had been called as the winner and the House and Senate both went red, I sobbed. I was not crying because the candidates I voted and hoped for did not win, I… Continue reading Losing

It’s Been A Lot

Things in the world are weird right now, so Husband and I decided to make things even weirder and sell our house. Actually it's something we've been thinking about for quite a while, and with remote work and the general state of the world, now is just a great time to finally get out of… Continue reading It’s Been A Lot

The End of A Non-Existent Summer

Labor Day signifies the "end" of summer in much of the US. A last hurrah, usually marked with a party doing outdoor, summery things a final time before settling down into the coziness of fall.

General Update *Salutes*

Hola, Dear Reader, it has been too long. I took some time off from most of my work while my niece visited for two glorious weeks. We watched more movies that I do in a whole year, ate more junk food than I should in a lifetime, and had exactly as much fun as Covid… Continue reading General Update *Salutes*
