Re-entry is exactly as described. It's been 10 days since I've been to work! I'm not really complaining, as I do like to be busy, but 10 days on my own terms...
I slept like crap last night. Woke to a message from Kate warning me that the stupid new variant may affect her travel (in the form of reinstated quarantine upon return), so that's up in the air and, as you might imagine, NOT MAKING ME HAPPY. I had a great idea but am having problems ordering it for Maddy & Viv. And Ali's been dealing with a not-fun situation(s) at work, plus one of her employees had emergency surgery the other day!
Rusty & I are going to a movie tonight. I can't remember the last time I was in a theater.
(I even found unused gift cards in the app -- from who knows when? And I am going to have a beer!)
Fingers crossed that the stupid new variant doesn't cause problems with travel, your ordering problems get resolved, and work gets better for Ali (and her employee). Enjoy that beer!

Congratulations on another (almost - I hope I'm not jinxing the last day!) NaBloPoMo! LOVE the decorations outside and in ... and can only hope that Kate's travel isn't too badly interrupted. Seems like we're going to be living with these variants for a while and we're just gonna have to figure out a way to do it that doesn't keep families apart for months (or years!) and whoa, 10 days away ... wishing you an EASY night tonight!

I hope everything works out for Kate -- I would hope that with vaccination and testing she could avoid quarantine! Hope you enjoyed the movie!

Ugh, this new variant. And to think so much of this could have been prevented if people just got vaccinated. I hope it doesn't wind up impacting your holidays!

That's a whole lotta re-entry to deal with. . .
I'm glad you're finding an escape at the movies! I'm really wanting to see Belfast, so I'm eager to hear what you thought of it.
Sending all the good juju! XO

Too many difficulties! I would just sit in your sunroom and admire the view til it all passes and hopefully things will resolve favorably. These variants are ruining everything. I haven't been to a theater in 2 years. Thank goodness for netflix, hulu. My current binge is Taste the Nation with Padma.

Oh geeze! I hope all the travel issues work out for Kate and that she can travel home for the holiday. And I hope Ali's work-woes even out and that your work-re-entry goes well. Curious to hear what you think of Belfast. I'm looking forward to seeing House of Gucci.

Sorry for all the curveballs Life has thrown at you. Hopefully, everything will work out.

Everything turns upside-down quickly when the virus is in charge! I hope all works out well for your family! Hope the beer helped!
