Or How My Life Changed in an Instant

To say 2019 has not been my year would be a vast understatement. This blog is to chronicle my journey from happily married to blind-sided and broken to (hopefully) whole again. And all the in-betweens.

Road to Recovery

Well it has been 11 days since Covid first reared it's ugly head. And I'm doing better. A few days in was my worst day. I couldn't get my fever down below 100, my throat felt like fiery razor blades, and every movement left me exhausted. The next day was better, throat hurt a little less and I mostly slept. In fact I would say I slept probably an average of 22 hours every day that I was sickest. I woke up Saturday feeling a little better. I had gotten a good night's sleep and

I'm sorry you are sick, now back to work.

The good news is the Families First Coronavirus Response Act provides up to two weeks of emergency paid sick leave. The bad news is it ends September 30th. I guess Covid didn't get the memo. Infect everyone you want before the end of September please! So after tomorrow, I will have to use my saved PTO. The PTO I've been saving for our trip in November to see Genesis (though honestly at the moment going to another concert isn't high on my wish list but tickets have been purcha

Life Goes On...For Some of Us

My last post was August 26th. My friend that could not get vaccinated because of cancer and got Covid? Still recovering. 27 days and counting - though she does appear to be on the mend. My friend's mother that could not get into the hospital (for a non-covid medical issue) because of all the Covid patients? She died. Also since that post one of my friend's lost her husband to Covid. I suspect he was not vaccinated but I do not know that as fact. Covid is not a joke people. Ro

Stressful times

How do you de-stress? Especially during work? I’m usually pretty good about not letting work get to me – at least not from 5pm to 8am. But lately I’m finding it more and more challenging, especially during the work day. I sorta kinda got in trouble this week for putting in too much unauthorized overtime. Which is fair because I should have asked permission and I knew that but also when I am deep in a file it can be hard to stop what I am doing to message my manager and see if

Stressful times

Life may be a stress inducing chaotic mess right now, but I'm still glad to be here. I continue to worry about *everything* right now. I hate that because some how, some way, some idiot decided that a global pandemic was politically motivated we are still here, a year and a half later. Except maybe denial is even greater right now? If you are one of my friends (or a random stranger that stumbled upon my blog) with school age children, you have my awe. I simply cannot imagine

Quirky Pup and Other Things

This pup is weird y'all. He LOVES and I mean LOVES to eat sticks and leaves. Potty breaks are a challenge because he just wants to eat all the leaves and sticks. And an occasional rock. I don't even begin to know how to train this out of him. Drew said he will grow out of it, but I don't know. It makes him so happy. I have lost count of the number of sticks he has brought inside today. I'm still leaving my window open during the day so he can come and go as he pleases (note

Not Just Another Dog Post

Hard to believe it has been 2.5 weeks already. 2.5 weeks since we adopted our little man. Who is rapidly getting less little. Y’all. He is so cute. Nights have gotten much better. He usually sleeps through the night but rarely sleeps past 7am. Inside accidents are down though that may be slightly due to over vigilance on our part and less with him. He’s figured out that during the day, sitting by the door will get him taken outside. And maybe 70% of the time he actually needs
