I'm sick of Covid and Covid accessories.

mostly-im-tired-of-people-being-ugly-to-

The vitriol has become more tiresome than the virus.

 

I also work as a hospital chaplain, so there we are. My wife is a High School Spanish Teacher, and school will "Start" during this challenge, though at minimum the first three weeks will be online. 

 

However, life still happens. I've taken my warning signs of pre-diabetes seriously, and plan to continue with that by cooking at home as much as possible, eating out as little as possible (which includes delivery of prepared food), and having as little sugar as possible. I plan to do Kettlebells following Nerd Fitness' Beginner KB workout, and to do yoga. If the budget allows it, I'll get the bike I was given last challenge set up and buy a helmet and start riding some.

You got this! Those goals are great and totally do-able in these uncertain times. 

I hope so, they're the same goals I've been using all year more or less.

These be the beans. I use an aeropress and got a fabulous cup on my first try. I also tried them as pour over, iced, from the shop when I bought the bag. 👌

That sounds amazing. When I want to make coffee that takes effort (as opposed to using the Keurig) I tend to be a French Press user.

I missed that your husband is unemployed. I hope things get better soon.

 

Today is a good day. Last night, however...

Little Bit woke up in the night screaming and took forever to go back down. Once again she did the thing where she'd calm down if I held her, and might even go in the bed, but she kept stirring, and if I left the room she started screaming again. We realized it was neither hunger nor discomfort because we had done what would help with that. It was separation anxiety. Eventually we had to let her cry it out. We started out by letting her be in her room for five minutes at a time before I went in to comfort her, then I went back out again. This went on for a while, and I started adding a minute to each break. It got stretched out to ten minutes between interventions before she finally fell asleep on her own. We slept in till about 9, which still gave us time to watch church online. During the day the baby was happy and cute, which helped. I made lunch, which was a shells and cheese recipe with kale. It was only just ok, the kale was too strong. It would have been better if it were wilted spinach. We took a short walk in the afternoon, going as far as we could till Sra. Tanque started to feel it in her ankle then we turned around. It was half a mile or less in total. Dinner was simple, fried egg sandwiches.

It was by choice.  The company he worked for was being unethical, and refusing to change it/totally ignoring it.  We will be fine, unless I go postal...........just kidding.  I think.

I used my French press the other day but with some beans I got for cold brew (vs fancy single origin beans) and I was unimpressed. I've had good French press coffee at a restaurant, but apparently don't really have the knack for it at home, and don't usually bother when it's equal effort to the aeropress. I use it to make cold brew, though. And in case it isn't really clear already...I am totally a coffee snob hipster. I have a friend with whom I compare flavor notes and brew methods...

Joining the COVID blues, it feels like things are ramping up here and the light at the end of the tunnel is very small and a long way away. Sorry to read about your sleeping woes. We’re still in the new born phase so up and down all night is par for the course!
