Day 40 in Home Quarantine

I stopped counting numbers and cases for awhile. I don’t know how much good it did, it almost made it seem not real like it’s okay to let my guard down. The whole out of mind concept comes to mind actually. It’s easy to believe it’s nothing and we are safe from the illness killing… Continue reading Day 40 in Home Quarantine

The WRITE Way

The write way… or the right way… to write a book. I reached my end point. I reached the end of my manuscript, or where I had planned to end my story. I wrote 91,459 words, which equates to roughly 365 book pages, and completed this in two months or approximately 8 weeks. That sounds absurd!… Continue reading The WRITE Way

Day 30 in Home Quarantine

I survived a month deep! I lived 30 days into this pandemic. I should have fresh flowers on my table to celebrate. Too bad I have not gotten flowers in a month.

Day 29 in Home Quarantine

Watching this madness is hard to stomach. I love hate these news casters who completely flip to call out what they “did” like a public “I told you so” statement when it’s not true.

Day 26 in Home Quaratine

We egged a few houses today. We filled plastic color eggs and spread them around in different yards then dashed off before we could violate any social distancing and home quarantine notions. It was actually fun spending time with the kids. We spent a long time filling 150 eggs with candy and packaging them in… Continue reading Day 26 in Home Quaratine

Day 24 in Home Quaratine

I am truly sorry for the people suffering right now. Not necessarily the dead but the living who have lost. I’d like to say it goes away, and that the pain and sadness of losing someone you love dissolves somehow, eventually, but then I’d be lying. It doesn’t go away, and it may not even… Continue reading Day 24 in Home Quaratine
