That’s a proper greeting after being dormant for months, right…?
You know how ‘writers’ can be… sometimes we have inspiration and sometimes we don’t. Sometimes we can’t shut up, and sometimes we take a hiatus for an undetermined amount of time. Do I need to explain myself? Probably not. But here I am. Here we are. Hello again. How are you?? Continue reading →
I’m referring to my hiatus–what were you thinking!?
It has been so long since I last posted that I didn’t even remember what my last update was. After doing a quick search, I had posted about my internal struggle with receiving my COVID vaccine before… well, before much of anyone else really (that’s what happens when you work for the health department during a pandemic; first dibs and all). So what have I been up to? What has been keeping me away from my blog for all this time? I’ll give you one guess… Continue reading →
So I got shot… THE shot. The one people are currently demanding… the same people who refuse to wear a mask and think this virus is a hoax. Yes, I got my first dose of the two dose Moderna COVID vaccine and I’m struggling internally asking: why me?
How To: Becoming the Health Department’s Greatest Pain in the Ass During a Pandemic.
As you may or may not know I work for my local health department. Yes. We’ve been quite busy for the past, oh I don’t know, 9 months what with a global pandemic and all and we’ve had to deal with a lot of crazy. And I mean an absurd amount. Continue reading →
Have you ever had one of those weeks where you feel like you can’t keep up? Or maybe one where things are happening around you, but you feel very disconnected? That’s actually how I’ve felt the last 4 months. I’m perpetually exhausted, the quality of work I do does not meet my own standards, my health is not what I want it to be, and I just want a break… all. the. time. Hell, I even went home and napped yesterday after work; I never nap! Continue reading →
I feel like a bad blogger since I don’t have any real desire to write, but I do have a good excuse I suppose; working the front lines during a pandemic is exhilarating exhausting (but also exhilarating)! I do have some pretty big updates though:
Ya’ll… I don’t even know how to start. It. Has. Been. A. Day.
I’ve been working every testing event we’ve had which has been 5 in the past week and a half; some of them have been close to 12 hour days. Days I’m not working events, I feel like I’m playing catch up for the rest of my reoccurring responsibilities, but with the added bonus of the phone ringing non-stop. But today… oooooo lord today… let me tell you. Continue reading →
… because I too am a legend (supposedly)–that was a Loch Ness Monster joke in case you missed it.
Did ya’ll know that I’m practically a super hero…? Me neither. Guess I must have missed the fitting for my cape.
Three weeks ago I was in The Bahamas with my husband, mom, and brother. We were living it up, completely happy with our obliviousness to the rest of the world. Two weeks ago I was instructed by my boss to self-quarantine at home after returning from my cruise per the new guidelines released from the CDC. A week ago I was celebrating my
So I went on my cruise and came back to Armageddon. Cool, cool, cool.
I’m pretty sure I just heard gasps from all 4 of you that read my blog. Yes, in the midst of the growing pandemic, I went on a cruise; the cruise that I’ve been looking forward to for almost an entire year. To be fair, there were no restrictions on continuing with the cruise when we left, and because the cruise line was practically desperate for passengers, they even gave us $200 credit to use on board. They literally paid us to go on our cruise. Continue reading →
