Wrapping Up Discomfort

  That’s a wrap on discomfort. We now return to your previously scheduled life… Okay, so while a lot of restrictions have eased and people are starting to dip their toes in the water of real life again, life is NOT back to normal.  We definitely are not back to our previously scheduled anything.  This…

It’s May…I think.

  Does anyone else feel like April has been the longest month EVER?  We have all been on lockdown for so long that it is beginning to feel like the norm.  We have no idea what day it is, what week we are on and if we have already eaten dinner?  And let’s be honest,…
