Tired in 2020

The library opened for curbside service on Monday. Actually we spent Monday getting organized - we pulled about 700 books for approximately 200 customers, bagged them, and called each customer t...

Fred Tokars is dead in 2020

If you don’t know who that is, in 1992 he had his wife killed (shotgun blast to the face) in front of their two sons (ages 4 and 6). From true crime shows, I learned that he was a nasty piece o...


Just snippets of actual conversations that have taken place in my house recently… Me, after finding the scale in our bedroom closet: “Hey babe, I’ve lost eight pounds!” Husband: “That’s what happ...

Sunday? in 2020

I come here every day and read, and I think about writing - but what is there to say when most days just blend together? Blah. My husband is a home improvement rock star, and it makes me feel ev...

Stimulated in 2020

We got our stimulus money last week. We barely qualified, it helped that I only had one paycheck last year and Rob wasn’t eligible for his bonus (he hadn’t been with the company more than a few ...

Survey! in 2020

Are you an Essential worker? Not in the slightest. How many drinks have you had since the quarantine began? Depends on the day. Sometimes it’s half a bottle of wine, sometimes a hard cider, somet...

Wed-meh-day in 2020

Running out of clever COVID titles. Today has been very meh. I slept through my alarm and had weird dreams as a result. Then the sourdough starting I’ve been trying to get started for more tha...

"Spring Break" in 2020

It’s Spring Break, so the kids have no classes or assignments this week. Y’all, we might not survive. I told them we are doing three things every day: a taekwondo class (their teachers are post...


Forgive me if I’m repeating myself. Everything is so much the same that I can’t remember what I’ve written here and what I haven’t! Schools are out until at least April 24 now, and probably for ...

Thursday (I think) in 2020

The days do tend to run together. I’m trying to stay motivated, but it’s hard. I participated in a live webinar today (how libraries are dealing with COVID-19 was the subject) and seeing how man...

Hanging in there in 2020

Doing a decent job of social distancing, if I do say so myself. The kids have adapted to doing school online pretty well, though they’re irritated that I made them read for an hour a day on top ...

Social distancing in 2020

The library closed to the public effective Saturday, but they told the regularly scheduled employees to come in today to work on projects. I had a great day today, got a huge project finished an...

46 in 2020

It’s my birthday today! And I get to spend it social distancing, which is fine by me. I typically do a big grocery shop every two weeks on payday. Yesterday was my usual biweekly shop day, so I...

Don't Panic in 2020

…even though it seems like that’s what everyone is doing. Today Rob’s office declared that starting Monday everyone will be working from home for two weeks. He’d already planned to take the day o...

Thursday in 2020

I’m watching The Trials of Gabriel Fernandez on Netflix and it’s making me super ragey. That poor kid was failed on so many levels by so many people. I know I’m not mother of the year - when I’...

Dog stuff in 2020

So our boxer foster left us last Saturday and came back on Tuesday. Apparently her owner didn’t show up to claim her, so she was just boarded at the vet for a few days until they got back in tou...

Good news, sad news in 2020

Good news - I did our taxes and we’re getting a refund! Actually two, both state and federal. Sad news - the boxer is going home next Saturday. I’m happy for her owner, but I spent five days th...

Everyone else is doing it... in 2020

Survey time! How many pairs of converse shoes do you own? Two. I love the silly shoes, even if they have no support. Any other names your parents planned to give you? I think they planned to c...

Going to the dogs in 2020

It seems my life is mostly about dogs these days. Having a better day with puppy, though I just found poop under the dining room table again. Argh! Overall the training treats seem to be helpin...

Rainy day in 2020

Tell me again why I thought getting a puppy was a good idea. Today I came downstairs at 7:30am, and Rob told me he had fed her and taken her outside to poop and pee already (she had done both). ...

So we did a thing in 2020

My husband, who said he never wanted to have more than two pets again, got tired of waiting for the foster dog to back to her owner, so he adopted a puppy on Tuesday. She’s a six week old Cataho...

Old home movies in 2020

My brother gave me a flash drive with some old family movies he’d digitized. He told me he had recorded our parents talking over the movies, and I was looking forward to hearing them tell the st...

New Year's Eve/Day in 2020

Actually I should go back a bit further - we got back from the mountains on 12/28, with my niece in tow as her flight back to Seattle didn’t leave until 6am the next morning. We had “second Chri...
