Fully Vaccinated, What Now?

Tomorrow marks two weeks since I had my second dose of the Pfizer vaccine. While I’m excited to be less worried about COVID, I’m still nervous. I don’t foresee my life looking remarkably different, at least at first. Though, I do plan on going into stores instead of shopping online and making appointments in-person insteadContinue reading “Fully Vaccinated, What Now?”

Happy

Adjective. The feeling when you can’t stop smiling. Where everything becomes lighter and you run around the house shaking and yelling because of unexpected good news.

Unexpected Stop

Mikey’s Wild Night

Mikey was so obsessed with going outside that he snuck out into the night when the door was cracked and no one was watching. Poor little old guy got stuck outside, pacing back and forth in the newly fallen snow on the porch. His meows woke up the sleeping dog upstairs but the dog didn’tContinue reading “Mikey’s Wild Night”

Last year at this time, uncertainty lingered heavy. There were too many unknowns, with people getting sick and many dying, no one knew what was going on. Wearing masks was a figment of an idea, nowhere near mandatory, people were stuck in their homes, too stressed to pick up their dog’s poop on their walks,Continue reading “hope”

Night Sounds

The train blares its horn as it travels by. I hear it throughout the night. The pipes screech when I turn off the water. Chocolate bubbles on the stove. The container pops when I secure the top. The dishwasher whistles at the beginning of its cycle. The pages of a library book rustle together asContinue reading “Night Sounds”
