Day 66: Milestone Birthday!

COVID19 Work

Day 59: Rough Day

Day 58: Call Week & Work Clothes

As planned, I had my virtual wardrobe update consultation yesterday (with Lani!) and based on recommendations ended up ordering a major refresh of my work wardrobe. Then I joked with Josh that with my luck our healthcare system is probably going to issue a…
