Check In: Day 350

Week 50: Well here in Michigan we are getting closer to getting the shot. Next week they are lowering the age to 50 for people to get Covid-19 shots. I am on the wait lists at several places so we will see if and when I can get one. My mother gets her second dose…

Some Days are Like This

Yes, it is cereal, milk, and bananas. Honey Nut Cheerios to be exact. We hit the wall. The almost year anniversary, ten more days, of the Covid-19 shutdowns are hitting my family hard. Though it is becoming the new normal for us there are still days that my kids struggle and we all are tired….

Check In: Day 343

Week 49: As we creep closer and closer to the one year mark things are starting to feel more “normal.” I think it is because we are starting to accept what “normal” will be like. We don’t think so much about Covid every day. I don’t know it is a good thing or not. The…

Check In: Day 336

Week 48: Every day feels like it is a bit closer to the “end” of Covid-19. I see more friends getting vaccinated. My mother had her first shot with no side effects. I know it is going to take time to get to where we can feel safe going out into large groups but at…

Check In: Day 329

Week 47: I have to say getting out of the house and away for a bit has really helped me. I feel productive again and that I can accomplish tasks. I needed to clear my head and it was wonderful. My mother is scheduled to get her first Covid shot today. I had to schedule…

Where Did I Go?

I had not eaten in a restaurant since March 10, 2020. I had one long weekend away from our home between March 12, 2020 and last week. I am a travel agent. My whole family loves to travel. My children went to Disney World in August 2020 because they needed a break and I knew…

Check In: Day 315

Week 45: So how is everyone doing on their intentions for 2021? Mine have been up and down but with the sun shining the last two days and it being almost 40 degrees in Michigan? I am pushing forward. Fortitude. It is easy to push ahead when the days are sunny and the temperatures feel…

Check In: Day 308

Week 44: Things seem much better today. My daughter got into her school of choice this week. We have paid the deposit and fingers crossed she will be headed back to New York for school in August. She is so happy. She will be 10 hours from us but close to family and friends so…

Check In Day: 301

Week 43: It certainly has been a strange week here. My son went back to school Monday on hybrid. Meaning he goes into school on Wednesday and Friday with 1/2 of the rest of the students in the school. He is on his own to complete assignments on Tuesday and Thursday while the other half…

Check In: Day 294

Week 42: I am tired. I am writing this on the evening on January 1st and I am tired. We all stayed up late on New Year’s Eve and slept in a bit on New Year’s Day. We are starting to take down the Christmas decorations and starting to organize, well I guess it would…

New Year’s Day!

for·ti·tude/ˈfôrdəˌt(y)o͞od/ noun: fortitude courage in pain or adversity. Fortitude is my word for this year. The courage to look at what needs to change in my life and make the decisions on what needs to be done. To look at my life with strength of character, spirit, and mind and know that I am making…
