Today, to me, there is nothing political about this. This isn’t even about science. I don’t want to argue. I’m not here to moderate debates. It’s true – Somewhere in the back of my mind, I hold opinions too. They’re currently being stored in a file, under the name: “What’s It Matter, Anyway?” I.

The whole COVID timeline is beginning to get a little fuzzy for me now. My days have been running together since March and I have been wearing my husband’s boxers as shorts daily since April.

Don’t judge me – you hate…… Continue reading It’s OK

Ah…Nothing like putting the kids to bed early just to eat popcorn and freak ourselves the eff out during Corona-Isolation…Romance at its finest. But…… Continue reading Why Are We Obsessed With Doomsday Movies During COVID-19?
Last week, we had a Fancy Dinner Party. Because, why the hell not? To be clear, it wasn’t an actual party. Just Mommy & Daddy, plus three kiddos. There is a long list of stuff we can’t take our kids to do right now. We can’t go out to eat, can’t go to the park,…… Continue reading Dining in Style During Covid-Isolation
