Not Quite Normal in These Foolish Things

Geez. I’ve gotten so busy at work that it almost feels like pre-Covid normal times. Things that are feeling “normal”…and yet not quite: Got stuck in a 30-minute traffic jam on the way to the ...

RAD: Doc T. in These Foolish Things

The first of two dates I had on Saturday. This one was for coffee on Saturday morning: Name: Doc T. Introduction Platform: Hinge. He’d just gotten on last Saturday and I think I was the fir...


Wow. Where to even begin? I come here to write, read, leave notes and always get distracted. So…where I left off. Last weekend was lovely. In fact, so lovely that I was able to see my friend,...

Outta Here. in These Foolish Things

Made it to the end of Friday. Today I was happy I was in the office because the guy who supports me (not my official assistant since Boss took all of my staff away) didn’t anticipate something a...


Okay, now today was better than Tuesday where there was nearly ZERO other people in the office. Today, teams of people came by and I got to say hello to a few of them…but then they left! This i...


Well, not really “back to work” but “back to the office”. I don’t know why this was such a big deal, but I felt like I needed this for my sanity. Here’s what’s happening while Covid still rages ...

Final Friday in These Foolish Things

It’s my final day of WFH for however long. I’m still in my workout gear as I did 30 minutes of HIIT after taking the dog for a walk and dropping her off at daycare. I am now thinking that I’m g...

Enjoying in These Foolish Things

I’m enjoying my last week of WFH for the foreseeable future. Unless things get really bad again with Covid (which, Fall? Winter? Who knows?), I’m going back to the office for work starting Monda...

Belonging! in These Foolish Things

Good morning, PB friends! It truly feels like it’s going to be a good day today. Do you know why? I hung out with my old friend (and former boss and mentor), M last night and we drank skinny m...


Tooth was extracted yesterday right around this time. It went off without a hitch, except for that my blood pressure reading was uncomfortably high. I understand why my pressure would have been...

11 Updates in These Foolish Things

I decided to go ahead and get the tooth implant (see previous entry for my drama about the whole thing), and today is the extraction of what’s left of my current tooth that’s broken down way un...


Y’all. One of my crowns popped off over the weekend and I thought it would be suuuuper easy for the dentist to just pop it back in and glue it in place. So first thing this morning I went to th...


I don’t know why, but I somehow landed on a basketball game as I crawled into bed with my laptop playing YouTube TV. Was gonna watch something mindless while I wound down from the day. Anyway, ...

Hi. I went to the office yesterday and was incredibly productive. Today I’m working from home again and, while I love being able to get a wonderful workout in and make my lunch while watching m...


Wow. Boss has turned back into his usual dick self. It has actually been going on since about week 2 of my return, so…approaching a month now. But he’s gotten especially dicky in the last week....


Today I went to Mom and Dad’s and, as I reported yesterday, my SIL wanted me to try to fix her hair. My mom had cut it last week into a long bob, and I didn’t realize it, but she wanted it even ...


It’s 8:20 PM on Saturday night and I’m home from a socially distanced patio date with Foxy Silver. Man, I so wish that I liked this guy - he’s so freaking handsome. But he’s also suuuuuch a gra...


Yesterday I registered my dog, Martini, as an emotional support animal. I kinda did it because when you do that, apartment management are supposed to let you bring your dog with you anywhere and...


Living Situation: Every day it seems I walk through slightly different areas of [my city] and sometimes a bit beyond just looking for neighborhoods and spots that might work for a move. I have ...


I just ended the cutest video chat with my little old mommy. We have been calling each other every day now since my carotid artery injury. Since the pandemic, we have been video chatting. She ...


I thought it would be interesting to keep a running tally of people I know personally (or at least as an acquaintance) who either have Covid-19 now or have had it in the past. Of course, I’ll ch...


Name: Foxy Silver Introduction Platform: A mutual friend! Right before the first lockdowns were in place in early March, I went to a little happy hour party for my friend Terri and there was ...


July already. Though I track the dates, I honestly don’t know who I am, where I am or what I am anymore. Sitting up on the rooftop of my building drinking decaf and trying to get in the mindset ...
