Greetings faithful blog readers,
If you're still here, you truly deserve the title of "faithful." My blog, like everything else in 2020, is in a sad state. I've only written 8 posts all year, but none of us planned for the year we're having. My last check in was three months ago, so I want to give an overview of what we've been up to.
In July, we spent the entire month in Ruidoso, NM, and it was the best either of us have felt since the pandemic started. We rented a three-bedroom kid friendly place on Airbnb, and the plan was for Brendan's parents to meet us there. Ruidoso had experienced very few Covid cases, but Covid numbers were picking up across the country, and Brendan's parents did not feel comfortable making the drive (plus they are caring for Brendan's two grandmothers, both of whom recently become widows), so we did not get to see them. Other than being sad about missing them, we really tried to make the best of our first ever vacation as a family of four.
