When was the last Literary Friday? Is it actually Friday? As we head into Memorial Day weekend, does it really matter if I know what day it is? And also- am I wearing my yoga pants for way too much of the day? (Yes, That answer is probably yes.)
Since we’re on day gajillion and 1 of this shelter at home thing- I can admit that some days I am rocking this. I wear my mask like a good girl when I go out to grocery store, I use hand sanitizer when I can’t wash my hands (although I will always prefer to wash my hands way more than use hand sanitizer), I don’t hug people or slap hands, I try to keep my own hands away from my face and I don’t walk around with my nose stuck out of my mask or my mask halfway down my face while chatting on the phone in a public place.
And then there are days that I do not handle it well. At all. I’m as pouty as my oldest niece when her little sister beats her at Paper, Rock, Scissors (and that is some kind of pouty folks…)
I’m still walking every day. Still trying to eat right. Still drinking water like a frat guy drinks beer. But man, I so wish the last time I had been in a restaurant- I wish I had ordered dessert. Continue reading
Friday (err……. Sunday!) Well 2 days late with this post- but whatever- we are making and breaking rules in these trying times.
Speaking of… how are you handling shelter at home day 1 million and 1? ( I joke about the number of days- but I really want to know!) I would love to tell you that I am handling it like a badass woman- take no prisoners, kick butt, etc- but some days I’m so bored I would almost break my pinky finger to just break up the monotony of the day. What is saving my sanity: Walking, reading, Chicago PD, The Practice ( re-runs for hours on Ovation TV on Wed and Thursday!) and my Erin Condren planner. Also, the geese (more on that later!)

Hi ya’ll…. And how are we handling social distancing day 1,001? I was not handling things too well this week because we lost power on Sunday night and did not get it back to late Wednesday ( having 2 crisis to handle at the same was too much for me.) Continue reading
Is it Friday? I seriously have to check my calendar these days. I know I’ve been missing from Literary Friday the past couple of weeks (apologies ya’ll). The days are running together and I’m wearing yoga pants like 95% of the time and I’m trying to NOT snack.
However, I have def gotten my reading mojo back- more on that in a bit. Also Chicago PD marathons are good ways to spend the day. Obviously, ice cream while watching Chicago PD would be the BETTER way to spend the day- but I’m trying to stay clear of the sweets. And the carbs.
How are you coping? Continue reading
Well this week has been a week and so Literary Friday has become Literary Saturday at 11:22 pm as I type like my favorite cat typing GIF (you know the one- where the cat is typing CRAZY fast!) Continue reading
Hey ya’ll- this week has been busy-ish: Went with my mom for a doctor appointment and mammogram (everything is still looking good- and by the way have you scheduled your yearly mammogram?) I had poll worker training ( I’ll be working the polls on March 10th) and I’ve been blogging and Instagramming 🙂 Continue reading
Friday Saturday! I missed the post yesterday because I went to a party for a birthday girl and it was so fun seeing Little A all happy and shouting out “it’s my birthday! I’m the birthday girl!”
And ya’ll….. I had CAKE. One slice. Not super thick. Not super tiny. Just a normal-ish piece of cake and it was DIVINE. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm…… Continue reading
