January/February/March (Thus Far) In Review

What a crazy few months this New Year has brought. On a global scale we have dealt, well – are dealing with – the coronavirus.

October in Review

October – ah! What a month! I complain about busyness often, but this month really was the busiest I’ve had in perhaps ever. The beginning of October consisted of quite a bit of babysitting and a number of morning shifts at the coffee shop I work at. (Morning shifts meaning I woke up at 4:30Continue reading “October in Review”
