May 14 marked the end of the two-week waiting period from our second vaccine (we got it on April 29), and since then, we haven't had a free weekend. We spent the 14th celebrating our six-month wedding anniversary/the end of the vaccine waiting period by getting dressed up, going out to a fancy restaurant, and … Continue reading A Hermit No Longer
Technically, the four-year mark is tomorrow, April 27, but since I've got a Top Ten Tuesday post scheduled for tomorrow, I figured talking about things a day early wouldn't be too bad. But wow - four years! I can't believe I've been doing this for four entire years. I've gone back and looked at some … Continue reading Four Year Blog-a-versary!

But let's talk about what's going on currently here: Reading It's been another week of picking … Continue reading Quarantine: Week Thirty-Two
It's Week Thirty-One of working from home, and we got the news last week that we may be starting our return-to-office phases on November 1. You know, right as cases are beginning to skyrocket to their highest numbers since July. No big deal, right? People are just getting pandemic fatigue. Who cares if there's still … Continue reading Quarantine: Week Thirty-One
Thirty Weeks. Two hundred and ten days of me sitting at my desk in my home office instead of commuting downtown to sit at a desk in a bigger office. It still blows my mind that it's been this long, and that we're not currently looking at going back into the office until probably January. … Continue reading Quarantine: Week Thirty
It's Week 28 of working from home. Week 28 of sitting at my desk, day after day, trying to keep my cat from sitting at my laptop. I feel like there's so much more that I should be doing, but instead of actually doing something I'm just sitting in my desk chair and spinning around … Continue reading Quarantine: Week 28
This week marks the twenty-seventh week that I've been sitting at home with my cat. I gave up on writing in a journal a long time ago (I think the end of May), because it turned into an echo chamber of me going "I'm not going to get to have a wedding this year or … Continue reading Quarantine: Week 27
If you remember, I posted an introduction when I brought Kiki into my house back in February 2019. Now, I want to introduce you to my fiancé's cat, the Unsinkable Molly Brown, who has moved in with me and Kiki since we're less than two months out from the wedding (59 days!) Molly was found … Continue reading The Unsinkable Molly Brown
Today marks the twenty-sixth week of Work from Home for me, and I still can't believe it's been this long. When we got the notification on March 22 (Sunday night) that we would be transitioning to WFH the next day, I assumed it wouldn't be for very long. I'd even left things at my office … Continue reading Six Months of Working From Home
