The dreaded phone call

I suspected it was coming,
and should not have answered,
but am now one of the many unemployed Americans
due to COVID-19 lay-offs.

Gosh darn it.

I loved my new job.

Five Years!

5-Year Blogiversary – Read 'em and Weep

Hello Blogger Buddies, Lovely Lurkers, and Fabulous Friends -

Eric and I started this blog five years ago, a time when we were exploring a different lifestyle while falling deeper and deeper in love.  You've been along for the ride - giving advice, holding my hand, and laughing as we tried new things. Thank you for all of the love and friendship. Even when I haven't been writing, you are always on my mind and have a place in my heart.

Looking back at quitting 2020

What the hell?!

I am not that girl.  I have never been a gloom and doomer.  I make lemonade out of lemons. I see the good in everything and everyone.  I love life and people and the world.  So... what the hell?!

I'm sure everyone is getting tired of the locking down and staying home.

I need to pull out of this.

Talk to me blogland.

What have you all been up to??


Quitting 2020

I've never considered myself a quitter,
yet 2020 has brought that word to the forefront of my world.

I've quit going out unless I have to.

I've quit relying on restaurants and take out food. 

(I actually cook now.)

I've quit heading to the office and seeing friends.

I've quit being playful and sexy and fun.

I've quit smiling.

I've quit laughing.

I've quit being hopeful and happy.

I've quit writing.

Hoping reopening this blog today will change everything.

And the only thing left to quit, will be 2020.
