❤ I suspect we’ve all been doing this during this peculiar moment in time.
Adjusting our focus, our work schedules, sleep/wake schedules…
Feel free to insert anything you’ve been adjusting. For me, it seems to be everything!
❤ So. I’ve been away again and I have to say, I never know how long my “comeback” post should be. Should it be a hi there and hello or should I share what’s been happening over the last month?
I usually start out with a super long one and then I ditch it for something short n’ sweet. I sorta’ do the same thing in stores. I’ll load up my cart with a bunch of shit and the more I roam around the stores the more I realize I don’t need half of the shit in the cart so I’m that crazy person you’ve seen in the stores putting shit back on shelves and not necessarily where it goes.
❤ What’s been happening??? I feel like we’re living in the Twilight Zone!
❤ I’ve been trying to follow the White House bouncing ball but who can keep up with the ever-changing campaign speeches/temper tantrum/briefings coming forth from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. I don’t think we need those briefings every day and if we do for God’s sake let someone else do the talking!
I wish Sgt. Joe Friday from Dragnet was one of the so-called “3rd rate reporters” at those “briefings.”
❤ I’ve been making masks. Here’s a pile of ’em already shipped out. I think this batch was 50+.
I imagine everyone with a sewing machine is making them. I know I’m making more because I don’t think this is going away anytime soon. So, if you or someone you know is in need hit me up.
❤ Today our state is doing a Phase 1 open, whatever the hell that is. I’m tired of listening to it all. Anymore these political briefings are much like the weather. Wait 5 minutes and all the rules will change. I hope everyone doesn’t run around like they’ve just made a prison break altho I suppose I couldn’t blame them. Being cooped up totally blows.
I don’t know about any of you but I’ve had one car ride out n’ about since quarantining became a way of life and I felt like I just landed on the planet. There have been buildings built and buildings torn down, all of the flowers and trees are in bloom. The gas prices have dropped below two dollars, all of the stores have caution tape and one-way signs. I feel like I’ve literally spent the entire spring season indoors and again, it totally blows.
❤ I haven’t been blogging because I just wasn’t feeling it. We’re all doing the same lockdown life. On the plus side, I haven’t tried to cut my own hair. On the not even close to positive side, I started watching The Real Housewives of New York. I know. What the hell, right? This is how I know my brain is turning to mush.
Fortunately, I didn’t even make it thru one show because I couldn’t deal with all that nitpicky, high school bullshit from grown-ass women. I don’t even know who those housewives are but they really need to back away from the plastic surgery. Holy hell… They look like skeletons with fruit roll-ups for flesh!
❤ How have all of you been? Everybody still healthy? We’re all holding up here but my cousin in Chicago has the virus and that’s very scary. Prayers and positive vibes for her would be much appreciated.
❤ So, I discovered this about myself via quarantine. Apparently, I’m addicted to Amazon now. Actually just online shopping in general. Granted, the things I’m ordering are things I need but still, it’s like an every week thing. I’d go to overspenders anonymous but I’m pretty sure they’re not an “essential” business, like gyms and tattoo shops… Insert eye roll here.
❤ Today is my very best day of quarantine because it’s my son’s 29th birthday!! So a great big Happy Birthday to him!
Thank goodness he’s in Michigan. They’re not opening until the 15th so I don’t have to worry about a bar scene with a bunch of “maybe they’re infected maybe they’re not” non-mask wearing partiers.
Happy, Happy Birthday to my son who has taught me so much about acceptance, thinking outside the box, and most of all unconditional love.
College grad. 2019 with his beautiful sister.
❤ Wow. So apparently I opted for the long-ass blog post. Sorry ’bout that. I’ll be writing my post for tomorrow later this morning and I promise it won’t be that long.
❤ As always, I’ll be visiting all of you and catching up. Please stay safe. Keep your distance and as goofy as they look, wear a mask. I’ve got you all in my prayers. ❤
MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –
