I had given up on pandemic blogging, especially as the pandemic seemed to be winding down...but not so fast! We started going to the movies and restaurants. Especially in the week after we moved in to the new house, we were eating out every night! That gets old after a while but it was a good way to learn a little more about the new neighborhood. As we unpacked and were able to get some groceries in, Jimmy started cooking again and I could scrounge something for lunch. Sometimes, a take out meal would get me three meals for one. I didn't have a big appetite the first couple of weeks. Some was stress, some was just not getting my normal amount of exercise and not being super hungry. 

I actually went to the movies by myself a couple of times, to see things Jimmy wasn't interested in. Even though we're not in DC, we are closer to two major theaters, so that's pretty great for me. And if I don't feel like taking that walk or bike ride, everything seems to be streaming. 

This morning, I did yoga for the first time in months. That felt good. The rain is hard and heavy this week, making biking more challenging. I do feel like I'm starting to get into a routine. Routine can be dull but it can also be comforting. I need to get that base-level comfort back, even as the world hovers on shutting down again (and what about the places that still don't even have access to the vaccines?). Everything feels uncertain but work goes on. The house is getting more home-like. We are doing ok. 

Grateful for: being fully vaccinated.
