When I started blogging, I shared a lot more posts where I just kind of talked about my life and what was going on. I kind of miss writing those kids of posts – especially now, when I think we all miss just connecting with other people! I think I’m going to try to make this a monthly thing, to have a nice little catch up each month.
I know it’s strange to start a post like this in the midst of the pandemic, while my life is clearly not super exciting. But sometimes I think the little things are the most fun to share, and the most fun to read about, too! So with that in mind, I’ll start with the biggest small thing in my life right now – the deer in my backyard!
We’ve had deer in the neighborhood for years, but I’m really noticing and paying attention to them this year since I’m around so much more. I think it’s safe to call it an obsession – I look for them every night, my camera roll is filled with pictures of them, and I even got deer food delivered from Tractor Supply Company! (Don’t worry – I made sure it was food that was safe to supplement their typical diet with.) I know it’s such a small thing, but it really is so exciting to watch them when they stop by.
I shared about the burn out I’ve been feeling in a post last week, and ever since then, I feel like I’ve been seeing so many other people saying the exact same thing, which is at least reassuring in a small way! I’ve been dealing with the burn out by watching lots of TV – Bridgerton (like everyone else, of course), a re-watch of The Hills and The City, and then started (and finished) Selling Sunset and Bling Empire. Clearly, I’ve been going all in on the reality TV. I kind of feel like I’ve watched everything there is to watch, so if you have any good recommendations, please send them my way!
This week has also been filled with inauguration events! I think this is the closest that I’ve ever followed an inauguration – the inaugural planning committee has actually held a number of Zoom meetings to keep the disability community up-to-date about all the events going on and the accommodations that would be in place for each one. I can’t tell you how meaningful it is to have these meetings – it really just shows how much the new administration cares about being inclusive of the disability community. And of course, I’m always in for a virtual concert! What a fun way to start celebrating a virtual inauguration.
And that basically brings you up to date on my life – can’t wait to share another update next month. I know it’s nothing exciting, but hopefully it’s still something you like to read!
