Hi There, Catie Here! How are all of you handling lockdown, quarantine, stay-at-home? I'm about like this: Don't get me wrong, I love our home. I just don't enjoy being either at home or at work all the time. Before anyone starts in on me, yes I know how very lucky I am. I live… Continue reading Every Day Is Exactly The Same (A Post In Which Catie Rants – A Lot)
Perhaps after a good, loooong nap, when I wake up, things will be back to normal. But considering how the world is going, I doubt it. It's been a month since Catie posted, and things have been nuts in our corner of the world. I'm assuming it has been for you guys, too, considering the… Continue reading Can I go back to sleep now…?
Turn and face some hard talks... Hi there, Catie here! It's time for good news/bad news. The good news first: I got a new job!!! After 22 years at one company (that was slowly sucking my soul away,) I'm leaving and I couldn't be happier. Hello, Lena here. We are so, so happy for her!… Continue reading Ch-Ch-Ch Change
I do! I do! Hi there, Catie here! I'm sure everyone answered the vacation question the same way I did. And yes, I know we just went away a few weeks ago. But I want to go again - soon and maybe solo. Not gonna lie, this past week has been rough and frustrating at… Continue reading Who Wants To Go On Vacation?!?
Hi there, Catie here! Sad to report that we didn't go away again this weekend. As much as I had wanted to, scheduling and the weather just didn't cooperate. Hi, Lena here. Didn't I say last year was going to be the last year I dealt with snow?? Okay. This year, for sure. I had… Continue reading We Didn’t Go Away This Weekend
Hi there, Catie here! Writing from beautiful Falmouth, MA. So, here's what happened. The first week of the New Year, I thought I was going to lose my shit at work, so I asked for this week off. Including MLK Jr. day, that's 10 fantastic days off in a row. TEN. What to do with… Continue reading We Went Away! And I Am On Vacation!!
Good morning everybody, Twenty-twenty has officially arrived, and I don't know about you, but I was ready for this new year. So much happened last year, some good, some not-so-good, and though I can't say it was bad, I have plans for this one, I'm very excited to get them started. Beginning January 1st--yup, I'm… Continue reading Happy 2020!!
Hi there, Catie here! Happy to announce we survived a big (for us) family Christmas! I should really say "Big Winter Holiday" because we in no way, shape or form follow a religion. Anyhoo... Around five years ago (gosh, it might be 6 now) we decided that the three of us and our kids had… Continue reading Happy Holidays!
Hi there, Catie here. It seems like all the energy and time I used to put into blog posting has been shifted to baking. I'm blaming the time of the year (cold, dark, rain, freezing rain, occasionally snowy) for my constant need for warmth and carbs. My most recent experiment is this: Who knows… Continue reading Oops Forgot to Write (Again) But We Did Fun Fall Stuff
Hi there, Catie (with a cold) here. We're finally settled in after three weeks of almost non-stop running around. So lets see what's been going on since I last posted.... Paul and I went on a cruise (Paul's first) and had a great time. Lots of yummy food, trivia, bingo, sex, sun, pretty views and… Continue reading Sniffle, Sneeze, Cough, Hack, Wheeze, Ah-Choo
