I’ve realized that this quarantine may really be messing today. I took Lillie to the library to pick up her holds, which went well. Everything was set up outside and the librarians had her books waiting for her. I was able to return the books I’ve had since March, although they won’t actually be checked […]

I came in to write a post last night, turned on the living room light (where I write), and heard a groan. I hadn’t realized that the kids had decided to sleep in the living room until the tent is put back up and they were already bedded down. So, no post last night. There […]
