At the end of July/beginning of August, we went on a much anticipated trip to California. This trip had been in the works since early 2021 and had been a lot of fun to plan and dream about. It was slightly stressful to be flying again (especially since we’d never in all our years of travel seen the Denver airport so busy), but things went pretty smoothly.
I can’t remember if his name came up on the radio or in a conversation between Noel and I, but what I do remember is Ellen’s reaction.
The first notable thing to happen in September was Labor Day weekend.
The day after our 4th of July trip, I had my first day working with clients since March 13th. It had been almost 4 months. I had been really nervous about my work opening back up and whether or not I would feel comfortable about it. I felt like my work was being really responsible (we are a city municipality which helps) and actually felt pretty good about it.
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.
Let me pick up the 2nd half of April. The day after I left off, it snowed. A lot.
I felt like life got “busy” again in April, yet we hardly leave the house.
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…
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.)
We kicked off September with a Labor Day trip to Maroon Bells. This was a trip we’d planned 6 months in advance because that’s how far in advance you have to reserve campsites.
