It’s that time of year again. January, the start to a new year. The time when everyone has high hopes for what the new year will bring and they set new year’s resolutions. It won’t take much for this year to surpass the hot mess we call 2020.
We did it. We survived. We made it through what some are calling the worst year. We survived a pandemic and everything else this year has brought. Was it really the worst though? Everything out of our control aside, was what you could control the worst? This year was different for all of us becauseContinue reading “A Look Back At 2020”
Hello and Happy Holidays!
We all know this year has been rough. We’re in the middle of a what feels like neverending pandemic. Jobs have been lost, schools are closed, businesses are closed, restaurants are closed.

Killing ourselves to make everything perfect. Wrapping endless amounts of presents. Coming up with ideas for the elf on the shelf. Watching our kids light up as the holidays comeContinue reading “Not Feeling Very Holly Jolly”
I was sitting here just reminiscing about the good days. The pre-pandemic days. The repetitive days. Doing the same things day in and day out without even thinking. It was like when you’re driving and suddenly you’re home. You know you drove yourself, but you do it so often you don’t remember the drive itself.Continue reading “I Miss The Pre-Pandemic Days”
I don’t know what I expected Halloween this year to be like. I didn’t really expect much or even think about it really. You just think of the usual – getting the kids in costumes, visiting family, and eating before going trick -or-treating. This year Halloween was different though.
When you wake up late it puts you in a bad mood. Then you spill your coffee and someone cuts you off on your way to work. Every little thing that happens will pile up and leave you in a bad mood.
