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”

Spring fever

Hello! Finally, after months of craptastic days filled with snow and freezing cold, we had a nice day here today! Not only that, but it actually was on my day off! That never happens. It was in the 60s here today and sunny, and I had so much energy. I did yard work, fixed aContinue reading “Spring fever”

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 …”

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”

Milestone

Howdy, folks. I hit a strange milestone today. It has officially been half my life since I was diagnosed in 2001 with my autoimmune condition. On Nov. 16, 2001, I was admitted to the hospital, near death. On Nov. 21, the day before Thanksgiving, I left the hospital. That was 19 years ago, when IContinue reading “Milestone”

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 …”

Guess what, guess what, guess what

Hello, hello, hello! I apologize for not writing a few blog posts over the last month or so. I can finally tell you why. I was a bit depressed because I couldn’t find a job, but I was also hitting the job search hard. And I got a job yesterday! I was waiting on theContinue reading “Guess what, guess what, guess what”
