I don't want to say I'm super organized when it comes to my plan for blog posts, even though it might seem that way to some. Especially when I reveal what I'm about to reveal. I keep an open Excel spreadsheet that tracks upcoming blog posts and the dates on which those posts will go … Continue reading Different Seasons, Indifferent Friends
Because today is Cheer Up the Lonely Day, our Sunday Scribblings prompt for this week is Lonely. If you decide to write a post based on this week’s prompt, be sure to go back here and share your link so everyone can see how you interpreted things! Here’s what I did with it… I often think I should … Continue reading Lonely
To Mask or Not to Mask?
That seems to be the question now, doesn't it? Because so many Americans are on their way to being fully vaccinated, the Centers for Disease Control have recently decided that the public mask mandate may no longer be necessary. Of course, there is a caveat. The recommendation is that if you are fully vaccinated, you … Continue reading To Mask or Not to Mask?
Hey, kids. How are y'all doing? No, really. How are y'all doing? The world is crazy right now and it can be super easy for us to go crazy right along with it. It's one thing for us to wish each other well, to stay healthy and safe during a pandemic like this. But all … Continue reading Checking In

For the last couple of weeks, as the rest of the United States has slowed to a crawl and been systematically shutting down, I've continued being in the world. Calm down, it's not because I'm being irresponsible and saying screw social distancing. It's because my job has been deemed essential. Because mental health doesn't really … Continue reading Late to the Quarantine Party
Thank You Notes

On the one hand, you have conservative leaders underplaying the coronavirus pandemic, warning that the media is feeding into an unnecessary panic. On … Continue reading Nobody in Authority Is Actually Helping
