Coronavirus, Day Sixteen

Today's adventures included a trip to the post office and a walk around the neighborhood. Because I'm a writer at home, I normally have very few co-workers. I joined a few groups of writers, editors and publishers just to have some socialization, as you do. One of them is a group that also enjoys planners, … Continue reading Coronavirus, Day Sixteen

My sister is in the hospital

My sister's girlfriend messaged me late last night after I was already in bed that April had a headache, chills, and a cough. I woke up to that message this morning. Later on she reported that my sister's fever hit 103.4. The girlfriend is a nurse and this had her rattled. She wanted to take … Continue reading My sister is in the hospital

Co-working woes will continue

I had no idea my husband was on the phone so much. Or in meetings. No, really. I know what he does in abstract. I've seen the engineering charts, I've watched him work during family vacations. I just had no idea being my husband's newest co-worker would be so loud. Thankful that today is a … Continue reading Co-working woes will continue

More groups!

I like to post things on Facebook that I find helpful or that I think other people will find helpful. I've been doing it all week and apparently other people have noticed. I've been added to not one, but two East Texas Covid-19 Help and Support Groups (not their actual names, mind you). So I … Continue reading More groups!

Writing Group, Facebook style

Back before all this coronavirus craziness hit, our public library had asked our writing group to consider having an online presence. People had complained that they weren't able to come at noon on a Wednesday, not to mention for a two-hour period all at once. Some people in wackier places, like the Phillipines, wanted to … Continue reading Writing Group, Facebook style

St. Patrick’s Day, social distancing version

Today has been weird, y'all. Super weird. My Tyler Critique Group canceled their meeting, which I'd expected, as all four of us have immune system issues or family members that do. Nick's workplace said they'd let anyone with immunocompromised family members start working from home. The kids and I set up a desk area for … Continue reading St. Patrick’s Day, social distancing version

Social Distancing

Today was supposed to be a several things that it wasn't. Kids were supposed to be back at school, but the district is having what they call a "Community Mitigation Period" instead. They're cleaning the schools and we're supposed to be back on schedule next week. Ree is a little bit wumbly over it because … Continue reading Social Distancing

Spring Break Summary

Yesterday Spring Break ended. It wasn't that exciting. Nick and I were minorly sick the first weekend, then Ree had his wisdom teeth out that Monday. I saw the Endodontist on Tuesday and they told me I needed a tooth removed and sent me back to my regular dentist to have that done. I got … Continue reading Spring Break Summary
