Jab # 1 (COVID Vaccine)

Woot woot! Here in Texas, phase 2 which is the general population for the COVID vaccine, opened up. The exact date was March 29. A very exciting day! I made sure to go online that night and check all of the possible places I could make an appointment. Naturally everyone was doing the same thing!Continue reading “Jab # 1 (COVID Vaccine)”

First Wedding Anniversary

I couldn’t believe it! An entire year has gone by since the Hubby (Sam) and I got married. Sure we had been planning a wedding for a year, but due to the Pandemic, we never had the opportunity to go through with it. We ended up hurriedly getting a Justice of the Peace as theContinue reading “First Wedding Anniversary”

Small Operation

I didn’t write last week due to an operation I had. The surgery was small and took less than an hour, but it really knocked me on my behind. The side effects were what got me. Luckily I was able to spend the week mostly sleeping and sitting zombie-like on the couch. The hubby wasContinue reading “Small Operation”

Party in the Driveway

The last time I hung out with someone was close to Halloween! It is crazy to think about how long we’ve been in isolation. I am lucky to have friends who are just as cautious as I am, which puts my anxiety at ease over COVID. Our friends sit across from us on the driveway,Continue reading “Party in the Driveway”

A Little Walk with My Little Love

If you come to my house on any given day, you might find a black and white cat sitting in the living room ( and whining) at the back door. This would be my fur baby, Max. Max has been an indoor kitty his whole life. Once we moved to Texas, he had the opportunityContinue reading “A Little Walk with My Little Love”

What a relief!

On Sunday, the sun came out. It was a beautiful 75 degrees! It was a huge relief to be back to the weather we know and love. Of course Texas still has a long way to go before getting back to normal and recovering from the storm, but it is a huge step in theContinue reading “What a relief!”

Valentine’s Day 2021

Thanks Polar Vortex! The hubby had planned a surprise activity during the day and we had made reservations for our favorite local restaurant ( outside of course). It would have been the second time we went out to eat in close to a year! To say I was bummed was an understatement. I’m still saltyContinue reading “Valentine’s Day 2021”

A toilet paper roll has a second life

Toilet paper rolls . Disposable. Recyclable. Telescopes for kids. And… charitable donations for animals? Yup! I was on the Nextdoor app one day when I saw a volunteer at the local animal shelter requested empty toilet paper and paper towel rolls. Why? Apparently they get filled with treats and become toys for the dogs andContinue reading “A toilet paper roll has a second life”

Book Club!

Around a year ago I was lucky enough to be invited to join a book club. A fellow teacher at my school also coincidentally lived in the same complex as me so when she hosted book club at her house, she invited me to join. It was a lot of fun! We sat around drinkingContinue reading “Book Club!”

Calls, Calls, Calls

The last few days have been hectic. I’ve been on the phone either with my parents or with NYC.gov. Since the announcement of states opening up the COVID vaccine to people 65 and up ( along with others ), my parents and I had been calling and filling out every application under the sun toContinue reading “Calls, Calls, Calls”
