So This is the New Normal

time just flies by and now it is april. time is like sand. i try to hold on it, but it keeps slipping between my fingers. things have changed a lot in the last few months. i know. it’s on everyone’s minds lately. the virus. the coronavirus. or COVID-19. whatever name you put to it,Continue reading “So This is the New Normal”

Word of the Year: Invest

we are already almost in the third month of the year. i barely feel like this year has started and we are almost a quarter of the way through it. i say all of this as i see some kind of spider or bug crawl across my screen. ugh. apparently it is not cold enoughContinue reading “Word of the Year: Invest”

It’s Been Awhile
