If you are watching the TV tube, you see all sorts of reports saying new cases and deaths due to COVID-19 are holding steady overall. You will also see the curve is rising, and in some cases rising dramatically in some states (Google Arizona). Reputable reporters, commentators, and journalists are sounding the alarm. Unfortunately, I… Continue reading COVID-19 Has Ended
Too often I ask myself, where are our elected Democrats? We have a pandemic, massive protests, and rioting occurring right now in our nation! Now is the time to be with the people—not speaking to us on TV, not tweeting, not Zooming, not doing robocalls or e-mails. We need you with we the people. We… Continue reading Democrats: Where are you?!
Photosource: https://thevillagereporter.com/minneapolis-police-station-torched-amid-george-floyd-protest/ Reading through all of the protest and riot news today, two things are stuck in my mind. One is how it appears those who want to start race wars and create anarchy are highjacking peaceful protests. The other is what one person said, “The fires are necessary.” This has left me confused and… Continue reading “The Fires are Necessary”
Returning to school in the fall has been on my mind, a lot. We are in the era of the unknown, and trying to plan for the unknown. No one seems to know, understandably, how to plan for in returning to school. Should it be the return of what we had before? Should we just… Continue reading Middle and High School in the Fall
Tomorrow I make first trek away from home base in over two months. I’m both wildly excited to see some new scenery and stimulation, and wildly anxious about being out of my safe zone for the day. Where am I going you might ask? I’m taking a road trip to Ohio to bring some things… Continue reading Off to the Wild Unknown
The hubby and I were talking a little earlier today about how fortunate we are right now in terms of our employment. We both have jobs in which we have been able to work from home. I’m still getting full pay, he is at 80%. During the Indiana hunkering down, we’ve been able to help… Continue reading Pay It Forward, and Backward
Hunkering down has been a challenge I imagine for all of us. There have also been some really good things about being hunkered down, which I believe I’ve mentioned before. I have really enjoyed working from home because it means I get to have lunch everyday with my husband, whom has also been working from… Continue reading Choose Wisely Men and Women
As I wrote yesterday, last evening was an emotional one with tears shed as information was shared and erroneous statements uncovered. As parents, we want to protect our children as best we can, wanting to keep certain facts and information to ourselves so the hurts and pains of the past remain where we’d like them,… Continue reading Shocked, but Not Really Surprised
Our governor let us know today we will be starting a gradual release from the “hunkering down” here in Indiana. Full release is to be accomplished by July 4th. Stage 1 begins on Monday. Essential travel restrictions will no longer be in effect. Gatherings can increase to 25. Social distancing must still be practiced. Later… Continue reading Stages of Release…Are We Ready?
As I walk around our home, I have missed seeing many of the pictures we had hanging, or were displayed, throughout our former home. They were always a comfort as many were either pictures I had taken of our kids, their artwork we had framed, or paintings/photographs done by friends of ours. To me, nothing… Continue reading Why is Picture Placement so Challenging?
