Warning – long post abt masking. CW: incredibly depressing Covid science, and the linked video is hard to watch. . I’ve had several conversations in the past month, all with people dear to my heart, which started with them asking me some variation on when I planned to go back to the things I onceContinue reading “Concerning the 3-yr Anniversary of Our Quarantine”

800. Eight-freaking-hundred. (CW pandemic, death, loss of a parent) ….. We’ve been struggling with this nightmare of a disease for so long that I’ve been taking significant precautions for 800 days. Aside from two dining events, in the two weeks after we were considered fully vaccinated, and one dr’s appointment, we’ve been avoiding events andContinue reading “800 Days”
Today, in monthly sacrifices…
CW for inadvertent self-harm …… ugh. ugh ugh ugh. Once again I have stabbed myself with my own fingernail and got deep enough that the divot I somehow dig out of me wouldn’t stop bleeding for a while. This is why, in the time before 2020, I’d go to nail salons. It wasn’t necessarily toContinue reading “Today, in monthly sacrifices…”

Holy Cow.”

Day 300, with…terrorists in the US Capitol Building
This was supposed to be a “holy wow I’ve been in quarantine for 300 days straight” post. This was supposed to be a “what my life looks like now” post. And sure, I was planning some notes about the two new Democratic US senators from Georgia, in particular, delight about Warnock. But instead, I’m watchingContinue reading “Day 300, with…terrorists in the US Capitol Building”
Day 250, with holiday plans
