I’m really happy that the gyms are open, seriously. It’s been so great. This is the one thing that is basically normal, right? Yes you have to sanitize and wear your mask in the door and out, bu...

Better in A restart

Is it wrong to write about how, with everything going on in the world and yet to come this year, I feel like I’m doing better than I have in a few years now? I don’t think it is, I mean - this i...

Phew. in A restart

Ok, at long last, the sale of my former place has closed. I didn’t want to say anything at the time, but the buyers were having issues. With a week to go, our agent says they aren’t getting appr...

Phew? in A restart

Antisocial Media in A restart

I’ve pulled back from social media this year, for obvious reasons, it’s 2020. I kind of think everyone should or that you should need some kind of a license to use it. I don’t mind insta since i...

Rainy day update in A restart

Not much of an update I guess but I’ll give it a whirl… People… I’m gonna leave social media until this whole pandemic thing is over… seriously. Unless they come up with some way to filter out w...

Two weeks in A restart

We are now at two weeks out from moving day. THIS is a good thing. I’ve been noticing weird things about myself though. As moving day gets closer, as this cloud becomes ready to lift, as I inch ...

Progressing in A restart

Still YESSSing in A restart
