Back to Glass

I was cleaning out our cupboard, and thought...why do I have so many bags in here? I don't even like plastic bags. 

Downstairs there are a ton of mason jars that my mom and aunt gave to me. I thought...why not use them to store dried goods?

  • Glass doesn't have the harmful chemicals that plastic does. 

  • Glass lasts, for years!

  • Food tastes more fresh when it's stored in glass.

  • I don't know about you, but when I pour from a plastic bag...dried goods often get hung up on the zip-lock type opening. That doesn't happen with containers.

  • Most of the time there's someone in the family that has a ton of Mason jars that they aren't using. It's time to ask that one family member for their jars. Use them!

  • Mason jars are timeless. They always look good!

  • They actually take less room up in the cupboard.

Are you tired of using plastic bags for everything?

My gecko Warhol shed, and I found this Michael Jackson glove that he left behind.

I Hope to Get Vaccinated Tomorrow

The stressors of these last few years:

  • The unknown - Getting laid off, and having a family isn’t fun. 
  • Being the new person four times over again - There’s something energizing about being the new person. Like, “Wow they picked me!” It’s also very hard not knowing answers to questions, feeling like I should know this or that. Yep it was hard being the newbie at Fresh Thyme, Williams Sonoma, Midland and AIM. 
  • The non mask wearers - Not knowing if I’d get this awful virus that’s leaking in the air is an odd feeling. I just don’t know how my body would react to having Covid + Asthma. 
There’s more things (like unemployment and everything being remote) that have been hard, but those things above top them. 

I got a Facebook message from a friend I haven’t seen for awhile. I mean even before the pandemic hit. She works at a clinic, and said there’s a slot to get the vaccine. It’s surreal. Am I really getting it? I’ll believe it when it happens. 

I’ve been told to sign up because people with weakened immune systems are up, but teachers worked their way in - not saying they shouldn’t get theirs. It’s just like the excitement went to blah, that sucks. Then I was like, Hey I am a teacher at my second job. But every site I looked at had teachers connected to a union. The the school I worked at opened getting the vaccine, but it was just full time staff, and that county. Well now I officially have a time slot! Let’s hope it happens, and I don’t have a bad reaction. At least I’m getting it in a clinic, so if a reaction does happen I’m in good hands.
