Freeeedommmmmmm, finnnaaallllyyyyyy!

Howdy, y’all! OK, so maybe that headline is a bit dramatic — or unreadable (translation: Freedom, finally). But for the first time in a year, I feel free. The self-isolation that started March 17, 2020, will finally be over starting April 7, 2021, as I have gotten the COVID-19 vaccination. I got the Pfizer one.Continue reading “Freeeedommmmmmm, finnnaaallllyyyyyy!”

Marking one year

Hello! Today marks one year since I started isolating at home due to the coronavirus. I can’t remember what I ate for dinner last night, but I will never forget the week this all started. MARCHOne year ago, on March 16, I had an eye doctor appointment. I remember the news becoming more and moreContinue reading “Marking one year”

I can’t believe it

Howdy! Well, I have some great news. Back in January, I signed up on a wait list in Virginia for the COVID-19 vaccine. It didn’t seem like I would ever get one. And it’s been very confusing as to how to get one. But last Saturday, I got a call from the local health department.Continue reading “I can’t believe it”

Sing it with me: Oh whoa whoa, I got those winter blues …

Hello! It’s still winter. And this has been quite a wintry winter. Last winter, it was really mild, and we didn’t have much snow at all. This year, though, it has snowed a million times, including last night. It’s still snowing today. Granted, we haven’t gotten a lot of accumulation (knock on wood), but theContinue reading “Sing it with me: Oh whoa whoa, I got those winter blues …”

Hodgepodge of randomness

Hello! A random slew of things have happened since the last time I’ve posted. First off, I did get good news. I went to my rheumatologist yesterday. If you recall, last summer I had some bad liver test results. Well, the last two sets of tests turned out fine. So, I’m staying on the sameContinue reading “Hodgepodge of randomness”

2020 hindsight: Part two

Hello! I was going to make this hindsight summary just one post, but man, I really don’t know how to shut up. So many words! Hahahaha, so here’s part two. (Part one here) July: I set up my blog on June 30, but I really didn’t get into it until July. And I loved it.Continue reading “2020 hindsight: Part two”

2020 hindsight: Part one

Hello! I hope everyone had nice holiday. I sure did. I am looking forward to saying goodbye to 2020. I know that a new year won’t make everything magically OK, but it sure will be nice to kick 2020 to the curb. Personally, I have had a lot of ups and downs, so here itContinue reading “2020 hindsight: Part one”

Busy, busy, busy

Sorry it’s been a long while since I’ve posted, but I’ve been really busy. I had some overtime at work, so I was pretty tired last week and didn’t have the energy to even turn on the computer. I’m not complaining about the OT or the job, btw. Still love the job. I was alsoContinue reading “Busy, busy, busy”

Catching up

Hey, folks! It’s been a bit of a while since I’ve posted, but I’ve been super busy with the new job. I’ve also been getting used to the hours and my different days off. I am absolutely loving the job, though. I have been mostly training for two weeks, but I’ve been designing papers inContinue reading “Catching up”

Four months later …

Hi! Sorry it’s been a while since I’ve posted. I started this blog as a fun project, and it got to the point where forcing myself to post every day wasn’t fun. I was struggling to come up with anything to write about. So, I’m changing things up a bit, and I’ll post when IContinue reading “Four months later …”
