Dear Diary Day

      No Comments on Dear Diary Day

Today is Dear Diary Day. Today is devoted to encouraging everything to taking up writing/ journalling. I have journalled on and off since high school and I can vouch for the therapeutic benefits of it.  Getting your thoughts down on paper helps corral them.  Helps you get perspective.  Allows you to see them from a different way.   I have been… Read more »

My 5 Stages of Working from Home

      2 Comments on My 5 Stages of Working from Home

We are all familiar with the 5 stages of grief- denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.  We also know that everyone grieves differently and some people skip entire stages.  Everyone is different. Keeping that in mind, I’m rapidly approaching the 6 month mark of working from home.  I am so blessed and grateful that this was available to me.  However,… Read more »

The Best Request to Wear a Mask Yet!

      No Comments on The Best Request to Wear a Mask Yet!

By now there are no real reasons NOT to wear a mask when you are out and about.  We’ve learned how much masks can stop the spread of COVID 19 in real time by seeing numbers of cases plummet in cities with mask mandates.  We’ve learned that herd immunity through community spread is likely not even possible, let alone feasible. … Read more »

The New Normal Sucks

      No Comments on The New Normal Sucks

There.  I said it. Not only do I absolutely HATE the very phrase “the new normal”, I find that I also dislike just about everything about it. The constant bickering on social media over the correct way to handle COVID-19.  The idiotic tweets and statements by our President that make us look dumber on the world stage every day.  People… Read more »

Hopefully, the answer is a resounding “No!!  I am staying home as much as I can.  I am washing my hands frequently.  I am making sure I’m social distancing when I’m out and about, and I am wearing a mask when I am in indoor public spaces.”  If so, good for you!! “But wait!!  I have a really good reason… Read more »

Get Married Already!

      2 Comments on Get Married Already!

We’ve all seen a few- or maybe a lot of you are very popular- announcements that couples are pushing back/ rescheduling their weddings due to COVID 19.  Of course we all need to social distance right now, and that’s hard to do in a church or large reception hall. I’m here to suggest something you might think is crazy if… Read more »

2020 Distractions

      No Comments on 2020 Distractions

Let’s face it- 2020 has been a complete and utter dumpster fire.  And it’s not even half over yet.  UGH. Today I’m going to do something a little different-  I’m sharing a few websites that exist for the sole purpose of offering a diversion from the shit show around us, and remind us that yes, there ARE still good things… Read more »

Counting On Gratitude

      No Comments on Counting On Gratitude

To put it mildly, 2020 has been a dumpster fire so far and I’m not holding out a lot of hope for it to get much better anytime soon.  This pandemic has upended everyone’s life in some fashion. But we can’t forget there ARE still good things going on.  People are having babies.  People are getting married.  People are falling… Read more »
