What Would You Do?

My dad is making his semi-annual pilgrimage from Florida back to Oregon next week. He, his wife and their three dogs are driving, stopping at various pet friendly hotels along the way. They want to stop and see Ben and I, which we want to see them too! Except… they have not been social distancing.Continue reading “What Would You Do?”

The Routine These Days

If it weren’t for my regularly scheduled Monday and Tuesday meetups, I’m sure the days would blend together and I wouldn’t be able to tell them apart. Wake up, check the news. See what’s new and hopefully not too depressing. This morning I read a headline that said although we’re getting bored by sheltering inContinue reading “The Routine These Days”

Building Resiliency

It’s impossible not to feel some form of anxiety these days. Our world is upended: the way we interact, the way we travel, the way we do business, the way we exercise, the way we shop for food – all of it has changed. And the media is right there, documenting every step along theContinue reading “Building Resiliency”

That Achey Leg Feeling

Know what feels good? Going out for a long, hard ride on the bike and coming home completely wrecked. It makes you forget about the world we’re in these days, even with the constant reminders of people wearing face masks and towns looking deserted. If you push yourself hard enough, you feel completely present inContinue reading “That Achey Leg Feeling”

Saying Goodbye Is Never Easy

Ben and I said goodbye to our sweet, loyal and old pup Moonli at 4:30pm yesterday. He lived 14.5 full years and we’re so thankful for the time we got to share with him. Things were getting pretty bad at the end – his cleft pallet membrane had a puncture and he was obsessively eatingContinue reading “Saying Goodbye Is Never Easy”

Colorado Case Summary

I ate too much cake and sweet things yesterday and am paying for it today. I feel inflamed from all of the sugar and my face is puffy and attitude a little shitty – but things should be better by tomorrow. Phew! 3,342 Cases, 620 hospitalized, 50 counties, 18,645 people tested, 80 deaths, 17 outbreaksContinue reading “Colorado Case Summary”

Quarantine Birthdays

Kindness comes in many forms. I ordered some flour from our local bakery (Moxie Bread Co in Louisville, CO) and mentioned I was making a cake for my birthday (3/31). When I picked up the order today, they gifted me a chopping board and a free pastry. How thoughtful! On my ride home, I sawContinue reading “Quarantine Birthdays”

Counting COVID in Colorado

Sadly, Boulder saw its first death today. Numbers went up significantly compared to the steady incline we’ve seen the past couple of days. Denver is the hardest hit, yet other counties have a higher death rate. I find that checking these numbers each night keeps me in check and not getting lazy or slack offContinue reading “Counting COVID in Colorado”

And the Numbers Keep Doubling…

I got a message from a client who is a nurse in Texas. Last week things were unusually quiet and they were anticipating the storm. She said today that their hospital was flooded with Covid-19 patients and her coworkers are now on the front lines to treat patients. She’s scared not only for herself butContinue reading “And the Numbers Keep Doubling…”
