You know how we thought the Feast of Tabernacles last year was weird? Yeah, this year is weirder. If you are new to this blog and do not know: we are an interfaith household. My husband's family belong to the United Church of God. More info on the Feast of Tabernacles can be found here. … Continue reading Feast of Tabernacles
Before all this happened, I didn't really think of my life as boring. I had my monthly family events (one for each extended family), weekly church, weekly writing groups, biweekly writing groups, PTA board meetings and events, kids marching band events and band concerts, and weekly dates with my husband. I feel like I normally … Continue reading What Changes Will I Make Post-Pandemic?
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
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
My youngest has pneumonia -- they diagnosed it on Monday. My family of five had four dentist appointments and one doctor's visit scheduled this week even before that happened. We've been to the doctor every afternoon this week besides that. I still made it to a critique group on Tuesday and led a lesson on … Continue reading Pneumonia and other disasters
One crazy night! Started off at Greg's school for dinner from a taco truck and then headed over to Ree's school for Parent Marcher Night and then headed back to Greg's school to finish out Meet the Teacher with him and Nick. At one point I was talking to a teacher and completely forgot the … Continue reading One Crazy Night!
I have let this blog flounder for far too long and today is my first day back at it. We have had a wacky, crazy year. I'm not even sure that I should try to summarize it, but find myself wanting to. Let's start where I left off... oh my. Okay. That's a rough place … Continue reading Hello again!
Last night I visited the local writing group. I have been very confused about which group is the most local to me, as one is Association and one is Guild and one is in a town 45 minutes from me and one is here, but both are listed as "local." In any case, personal confusion … Continue reading Visiting the local writing guild
OH my goodness, y'all. So we got home last night and as we were walking through the door our petsitter's mama called and told us that she didn't know when the dogs got out, but the neighbors called animal control on us, the dogs were gone, and here's where to find the sheet of paper … Continue reading The Saga of the Missing Dogs
Every year at this time, my little family takes a break from work and school and goes on a church-sanctioned trip somewhere that we get to choose. Some years we go to the beach (my preference), sometimes to the mountains (my husband's), and sometimes we stay close to home due to circumstances beyond our control. … Continue reading Beach vacation = writing time
