Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Fifteen

[Bait And SWITCH]

It’s past my bedtime, I’m icing my knee, and I JUST remembered that I still need to post.

And I didn’t take pictures of the office today.

But first the news:


Those pictures I promised yesterday.

Aren’t here.

[I Am Enough]

I know it’s cheesy.

But it helps.

But first the news:

I saw this ring for sale weeks ago “I Am Enough” on etsy or wish or somewhere and it so totally and completely resonated with me. I suppose I must’ve been feeling particularly confident. Or sassy.

Or something.

Yesterday, I mean.

There have been periods of dizziness with me throughout my life – it comes with the low blood pressure.

But the other day I was walking and my blood sugar dropped so fast that I literally swooned. I limped over to a bench and stayed there for a bit, breathing gently to make a plan. Eventually I dragged myself to the gas station (it was closer than going home), bought a chocolate milk AND a large peanut butter candy bar, inhaled both and was able to walk home over ten minutes.

I’m especially super chuffed to see my personal trainer cause she’s awesome and she’s guaranteed to make me sore and she’s so totally going to get me fit again.

With my help.

Over a longer span of time than just, say, one hour tomorrow morning.

If you know me pre-COVID, you know that I’m a bit of an Escape Room Addict and my friends are here to enable me so as soon as they started seeing virtual escape rooms, I started getting links.

ASIDE: I totally wanted to link this post to my previous post where I listed every single escape room / company that I attacked one year – it ended up being forty something – and it’s one of the many articles that was wiped when my site was hacked a few years ago. #HEADDESK #DAMNIT

But, back to the fun stuff, #VirtualEscapeRooms



But first the news:

And since I’m finally productive again and starting to normalize and starting to figure things out and, frankly, really sick of Candy Crush, I’m turning my attention to these delightful opportunities.
