Hiii! Oh my, it’s been a dog’s age, hasn’t it? Where do I even begin?
A lot has happened since I last wrote: my lil baby nephew is a big honkin’ toddler now, Dave and I bought a house and moved to the other side of the state, we said goodbye to our beloved Autumn-cat, we survived Covid (although our senses of smell are still not quite 100%), we got vaccinated, and now life is returning to normal… sort of.
I’m one of those people who actually loved the time of quarantine, social distancing and masking in public.
Aside from the initial anxiety that came with the whole global pandemic concept, once I got past that, I was like, SOCIAL DISTANCING IS MY FAVORITE. No more people standing too close to me in the checkout line, no more crowds, no more social events I didn’t really want to go to.
Of course, I did miss some aspects of social life. It was sad and frustrating to not be able to see my family as much as I would have liked to, especially said nephew, who was growing like a weed and who I creepily observed from afar via photos, videos and FaceTime calls.
I missed traveling and being able to explore other parts of the country and the world, but I’m a true homebody, so I just went back to my childhood method of traveling in my mind by reading books and watching documentaries and whatnot. And through social media, of course.
I’ve been meaning to get back to blogging in order to keep my writing juices flowing. So hold on to your hats! More content to come soon!
