This is a whiny, poor me post. Feel free to skip and come back tomorrow when I will be back to just being boring. I am feeling very distant from everything these days for a variety of reasons. Most of them are the result of choices I made. Part of the distance has always been … More Tater, Once Removed
I was trying to remember when I have seen people from outside of my family. It was hard because I don’t have a lot of reasons to leave my house these days.

The news is full of talk of the Omicron variant school shootings, Olympic boycotts, a possible Russian invasion of Ukraine, and almost everything else bad you could conjure up.
