Ripples

I have been doing a lot of thinking lately. About the covid-19 virus. Not directly or specifically about the virus itself. But about the ripples it has caused in the lives of people. Including my own. In this post, I’m not discussing whether or not the virus… Continue Reading “Ripples”

What’s the Point?

I thought I better write early today because the weather is messy today with rain, snow, and high wind in the forecast and it’s always possible under such conditions that we could lose our power. It is snowing as I write this. With the… Continue Reading “What’s the Point?”

A Walk With Hannah Joy And Me

During these difficult days with Covid-19, some days are more stressful, some are less stressful. The last few days have been less stressful. I keep up on the virus situation, but I also take time to do things that relax me. One of EJ’s… Continue Reading “A Walk With Hannah Joy And Me”

Early Spring

How are you all doing? We are doing mostly good with occasional spikes of anxiety/stress. There’s a lot of uncertainty in the world right now. Our government is now telling us that we need to stay home until the end of April to reduce… Continue Reading “Early Spring”

(Dis)Connected

This morning arrived with heavy fog, making everything look beautifully mysterious. Once the fog burned off, the day was mostly sunny with the temperature forecast to reach around 50 degrees (F). It looks as if we are getting an early Spring. I sure hope… Continue Reading “(Dis)Connected”

The State of Michigan

How is everyone doing? Monday our Michigan Governor ordered everyone to stay at home to stop the spread of Covid-19.  For at least the next three weeks, individuals may only leave their home under very limited circumstances, and they must adhere to social distancing… Continue Reading “The State of Michigan”

Keep Calm and….

I’ve been pondering what to write about today. Of course, right now the whole world is focused on the Covid-19 (Corona) virus. It’s impacting everything from work, school, shopping, travel, special events. It fills the news, social media, conversations. I considered not writing about… Continue Reading “Keep Calm and….”

Opening Day

EJ hasn’t felt well all week. He finally went to an urgent care clinic yesterday afternoon. I went with him. When I saw only a couple of cars in the parking lot, I thought that we’d be in and out quickly. Usually, I go… Continue Reading “Opening Day”

Goodbye 2018

It has been a long time since I have posted. As 2018 draws to a close, I thought it would be a good time to update you all on the ending of our year. I’m not sorry that 2018 is ending because it has… Continue Reading “Goodbye 2018”

All’s Well That Ends Well

Yesterday morning EJ had an appointment with his doctor to discuss the results of the MRI. We were both hoping and dreading learning the results. The good news is that EJ does NOT have anything like a Hydrocephalus or a brain tumor. Instead, he has… Continue Reading “All’s Well That Ends Well”

Two in One

Last night was a very short night. Today was a long day. The alarms on our phones went off at 3:30 a.m., which is the middle of the dang night. We staggered out of bed and rushed around getting ready to leave for the… Continue Reading “Two in One”

Very November

A few days ago there were a few bare branches here and there, but the trees were still dressed in most of their colorful leaves. Over the last day or two, however, the leaves have been flying off the trees. Sometimes the whole sky… Continue Reading “Very November”

Beyond SISU

This morning EJ and I should have been off to the hospital for EJ’s MRI. However, yesterday evening his doctor emailed him that his recent x-ray revealed that there are metal slivers in his hand from his years of working as a machinist. Even… Continue Reading “Beyond SISU”

Survival Mode

There are times that the days fly by very quickly and then I have to catch up, trying to remember what I did over the last few days so I can write about them.  This is one of those times. EJ used to work… Continue Reading “Survival Mode”

Warrior Mode

I want to talk a little bit about the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), which classifies people according to their personality traits. I know that some people take the MBTI very seriously and some not at all. I think the MBTI can be a useful… Continue Reading “Warrior Mode”
