As we jump from June to July during the most bizarre summer ever due to Covid19, I had a very good week.
After four months of quarantine, I drove to NY state for a visit with my son and daughter in law. Although I stayed overnight and we maintained some social distancing, I returned home basking in the glow of Melissa’s pregnancy. Who knew such things were transferrable woman-to-woman?
I attended a webinar hosted by our own tech wizard Barb about navigating our ABB website and picked up many enlightening tips regarding our ABB WordPress Site and Mailer Lite – I’m looking forward to creating a newsletter so this was a win-win all around.
My five-year old grandson started Tee Ball this week, too, which lends hope our children will be able to experience a decent, if not restrictive summer.
