Staying Connected Through Social Distancing

As challenging as this pandemic time is, I can see many good things happening because of it.  What touches me most is seeing people concerned about their loved ones.  Even if we can’t be near some of our close friends and family, we can still stay connected through social distancing.  Because of my parents’ age and my dad’s chronic poor health, they are both considered high risk of getting the Covid-19 virus.  They’ve been in isolation for almost three weeks now.  Luckily my parents, four siblings, and I stay in…

Quarantine

To all my readers out there, I just want you to know that I’ve been thinking about you and hope you’re doing well in this quarantine.  Last week was especially challenging for me, and I know these are challenging times for all of us.  Andy recently suggested I take a break from my normal work week and just do something fun that I enjoy.  I think he’s right and that we should all indulge in whatever makes us happy right now to get us through this difficult time.  As states…

Moving Again

We just found out that the owner of our rental cabin is going to be selling it.  In fact, she already has people lined up to come and see it this week.  I guess she’s going to sell it “as-is,” so it will be a fixer-upper for the new homeowners.  We’ve signed a contract until July 31, but she told us we’ll need to find another place to live after that because she anticipates it will sell quickly.  I guess that means we’ll be moving again.  Needless to say, that was…
