How is it already the end of September? The year is 3/4 of the way over now and I'm still trying to process most of 2020. September was an interesting month for me. I read more books in September than I did in August, that's for sure: The Once and Future Witches by Alix Harrow … Continue reading September 2021 Wrap-Up
I can't believe it's the last day of August, and there's only four months left in the year! I managed to write 16 posts this month, which is one less than I wrote in July but five more than I wrote in June. Still not getting that 20 posts a month that I challenged myself … Continue reading August Wrap-Up
I can't believe today is the first day of July. I can remember staring the year off with The Thirty Names of Night and then in June, I finished my seventy-second book. So what have I done in the past few months, besides play hooky from my blog? I started back at the office full-time … Continue reading Halfway There!
I finally got my name legally changed this past week (I sent in my paperwork to the Social Security office on May 3rd and got my new SS card back on June 14th), and ever since then I just keep coming across new things that I have to change my name on. Changing your name … Continue reading Things They Don’t Tell You About Changing Your Name
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
I read __ books this month, which is still way below what I wanted to read. I'm hoping to up this count in May. I think I may tackle the Septimus Heap series just to give me something to look forward to with a definitive number of books to finish. Broken by Jenny LawsonHollow Kingdom … Continue reading April Wrap-Up
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!
We're at Week Thirty-Two of working from home, and I found out on Friday that we're starting the return-to-work phases next month, and I might be back in the office by December (on a week on, week off rotation). 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
