June 2020

June 2020

June began with our fun and slightly unexpected rafting trip. When we got back, we felt ready to be ever so slightly more chill about life.

San Juan River Trip 2020

San Juan River Trip 2020

I mentioned in my last post that we had permits to raft the San Juan river. Way back in March we snagged the permits. We didn’t get selected through the lottery, but after lottery recipients accepted or declined they released any extra permits. Quarantine had just started and we figured things would be better by June. As the weeks progressed, we began to realize there was a strong chance the trip would be cancelled. Noel was calling the BLM office…

2nd Half of May

2nd Half of May

Now for the 2nd half of May which heralded in the end of the school year! I had my last Fit Family Fun class. I had been really excited about doing the class when everything shut down because of COVID. I thought it would be really helpful to parents and fun for kids. It had some positive moments, but mostly it was me trying not to lose my temper with my own children on camera. I was not terribly sad…

1st Half of May

1st Half of May

I was thinking the other day how most of my readers are not my local Colorado friends. I’ve mentioned what sort of rules or guidelines we have in Colorado during this pandemic, but I haven’t mentioned statistics about where Colorado stands.

2nd Half of March 2020

2nd Half of March 2020

Sunday, March 15th was the first day that ALL our plans were cancelled. We spent most of the day virtually reaching out to people and didn’t get around to doing our church meeting until 7pm. It went okay, but we decided it needed to happen a lot earlier in the day. The kids didn’t have school the next day (the district was giving the teachers a day to gather their wits) so I made a schedule for us to hopefully…

Come Workout With Me!

Come Workout With Me!

I’m doing some Zoom workouts this next month while my work is closed. I’m even doing one for the whole family that I’m really excited about! Check out my work’s calendar for days, times, and links to the Zoom meetings. I’d love to see familiar faces there!

1st Half of March 2020

1st Half of March 2020

This March seems like one of those months that has a big divide. There was the first part where life was more or less normal and then there is the 2nd half (the half in which we’re currently living) where everything has been cancelled. It only seems fitting that I write about these two parts separately. (Also, I have a lot less going on now than usual, ha, ha.)

At Home Workout

At Home Workout

My work has been shut down by a state executive order closing all gyms until at least April 16th. I actually think it was a good call – the Golden Community Center, like most gyms, is a bustling place with lots of older clientele, kids running around to various classes, and lots of equipment sharing. Still, it’s hard when your routine, especially such a healthy one, gets disrupted. A few of our trainers and fitness instructors were asked to put…
