Life Lately 3.18.2020

Hey all!  Hope everyone is hanging in there!   

First off, I want to say thanks so much for all the birthday wishes.  It was an interesting birthday, that is for sure.  I feel like it was the day when the bottom really fell out with COVID-19.  The whole day felt off, but once I got home, all that angst started to dissipate (I mean, how could I stay cranky with a birthday call from my parents and then a FT with my brother and nephews?!), and I was able to really enjoy the evening.  And even with all that was going on (and still is going on), I had a truly great birthday weekend.  I was able to get in some wonderful celebrations with some of the best people.  That, plus the birthday wishes via email, text, and mail, really just added up and made the start of thirty-three so very special.

And, I treated myself to a new bag!  I had been wanting a new crossbody for some time now, and put a portion of my tax return to use on it.  Granted, I won't be getting to break it out anytime soon, but I will sure be ready when this all passes.

All in all, a great birthday and a great weekend!

The last few days have been all about getting used to the new normal, which right now for me is working from home.  Working from home isn't necessarily new to me - I have done so for a few days here and there when I haven't been feeling 100%, or the weather is nasty.  What is new, though, is working from home for a more extended period.  So far it's been (mostly) good, and I am keeping a positive attitude settling into this new routine, because really, what else can you do?!

That's pretty much where I am at now.  These are unprecedented times, and it will be interesting to see how everything unfolds over the next few weeks, and even the next few months.

  1. I want to THANK you for posting, I read a few every single day, including yours, as do my friends.
    Many have decided to stop and I do not agree at all. Just reading a blog everyday makes some ofus feel normal. So, I will be on the lookout for new blogs! You rock Emily!

    1. First off, thanks so much for reading! It's been hard to focus on much else, but I do plan to get back on track with posting everyday next week. And I agree - having some semblance of normalcy right now is definitely going to be key in getting through all this!

  2. I'm so sorry I forgot to wish you a happy birthday!!!! It's not an excuse that things have been crazy :( I love your new birthday present! You'll just have to wear it around your house haha!!

  5. HOW DR. ojieabu brought back my ex lover
    Am DONNA, am from UK. After been in a relationship with my Boyfriend for 1 year now and we were planning to get married soon and all of a sudden he left me for another girl. of a truth, I really love this guy and never can I imagine life without him. I further tried all my best to get him back but all my effort to get him back in my life did not work out. It was on this faithful day, I came across some Testimonies on a website about this great spell caster called (Dr. ojieabu) any persons claimed that he help them to renew their relationship and bring their ex lover back, I had to contact him because he was my last hope. I contacted him through his email and he assured me that in three days time my boyfriend is going to leave the other girl and come back to me and it was a very great surprise to see my boyfriend coming back to me after three days the spell was done. I am so very happy today that he came back to me and i achieved this with the help of Dr ojieabu I equally want to use this opportunity to Tell/Advice to as many who need their ex back, if you need his help you can Contact him through
