Be Friendly, Damnit

One of our friends told us that they have free coffee in the clubhouse and we should check it out. At 9:30 A.M., stumbling and blurry-eyed, we walked out of our apartment, masked up, of course, and walked to the clubhouse. First, I know it sounds very bougie that we live in a place that …

Routine

I’ve discovered that going on a walk during lunchtime is the best thing for me. It makes me do it; it also gives me more pool time later in the day. I need to schedule it from now on, which I’m going to do. It’s easier now that my husband is out of the house …
