All this coronavirus stuff is wildin', huh? It got even more wild last week because I am NOW an ESSENTIAL WORKER in the MEDICAL FIELD!!! Woot! I got a new job!!! I gave up all hope of being released from furlough from my previous job and have been job hunting and applying since middle of … Continue reading The New Normal (and a little life update)
You haven't lived until you've jogged out into the snow at 29 degrees in your bare feet and swimsuit to take part in an afternoon jacuzzi soak while basking in the glow of the rocky mountains.

I honestly thought I had written a story about this night, but I can't find it anywhere so apparently I made that up!
