For new readers, welcome to The Nexus!I don't have a really good reason why this is only the 3rd post since June, other than 'total mental exhaustion'. I could never seem to get going in a lot of things: this page, … Continue reading Return

Random thoughts, observations, and updates on a Friday afternoon. I FINALLY feel like I'm getting back to a 'comfortable routine', after months of spinning my wheels!

It is May 1st and I am fully vaccinated from Covid-19! I got my 2nd shot on April 7th. I cannot tell you what a relief it is to have those shots out of the way!
