April 1st was the end of the first quarter of 2021, and since my professional life is measured in quarters, I figured I might as well update these goals every quarter. I decided to do both my general 2021 goals and my book/reading 2021 goals in one update post. It’s been a decidedly rocky year … More 2021 Hopes & Goals – Update 1
Everything is chaos. Someone come unpack all of my belongings for me. Because I can. not. deal. with the carnage in our apartment right now. Also, I did something awful to my baby toe and now it hurts to walk. end rant. I’m hoping to be posting regularly on Monday.
Shane and I found out the day before Thanksgiving that his company was closing his facility and he could either take severance or transfer to a different facility in Georgia. Since he loves his work, and there are no jobs here for him, he went ahead with getting certified in Georgia. Naturally, I’m skipping a … More Where I’ve Been & What I’ve Been Doing
I don’t really have anything else to say. WTF. Honestly, I’m not surprised that people tried a coup, but I am surprised that they got into the Capitol Building so easily. Which is probably naive of me. I have a little photo printer that I usually use to print out pictures of my cats for … More WTF, America?
Even though 2020 looked at New Year’s Resolutions and laughed in their faces, and 2021 is probably going to be much the same, I do have some hopes/goals I’d like to work towards this year. I was going to do 21 in 21, but honestly, that’s never going to happen. I feel like the ones … More 2021 Hopes & Goals
Welcome to 2021! Will it be better (in general) than 2020? Hopefully. I know it’s cliché, but a new year, or a new month, or a new week, or a new day is an excellent time to start something new. I’m not saying that you should expect all your dreams will come true and your … More New Year, New Chance
Let’s put 2020 in the rearview! There’s no promise that 2021 will be better, but at least this shenanigan-filled year is behind us. Here’s hoping. I found the poem below, and I feel like it sums up this NYE perfectly. Have fun, be safe, and be happy. Promise By Jackie Kay Remember, the time of … More Happy New Year’s Eve!
Sometime in November, I asked 2020 if it would cool it on the shenanigans since it was almost over. 2020 laughed out loud – quite rudely, I might add. Beyond the Coronavirus spike, the vaccine debates (yawn), Trump losing his ever loving mind, and missing out on holidays because of the world these days, my … More Oh 2020, You Sly Dog
We can all agree that 2020 has been a dumpster fire of a year. If only the pandemic had happened it would have been a mess, but in addition to ALL THE THINGS that also happened, it’s been a year. However, good things have happened and right now is the time to focus on those. … More 15 Positive Things That Happened (to me) in 2020
There are only 3 cats (well, 1 cat and 2 kittens) living in my house now! It’s all very exciting, I assure you. Bonus to having 2 kittens – they gnaw on each other and not on me; downside to 2 kittens – they egg each other on in the middle of the night and … More My Triumphant(?) Return
