Now that I'm Blogging in Real Time just a day before Publishing a Post I'm not getting so far ahead of myself. Staying Home a LOT and not feeling well enough to do much else while I'm Recovering from the Pneumonia has made Sleeping and Blogging my primary activities. *LOL* Only Emergency Supply Runs for now and only if absolutely necessary. I took a couple more Ornaments off the Christmas Tree, at this rate and pace, I may have it undecorated by late Spring? *LOL* Luckily I didn't Decorate much else of the House this Christmas and we took the Holy Family Blow Molds back into Storage from Outside. They were our only exterior Decoration except for a faux Pine Wreath on the Front Door, which is still there. That will take 5 Seconds to swap out to a Spring Wreath when it's time.
We dragged a fold-up Cot into the house from The Garage Mahal, so we can get Isaac off the Sectional and he has an actual Bed to Sleep in. I got a new Cot Mattress first, they Sell them at places like Wal-Mart, we also Scored our N95 Masks there in the Paint Dept.. It was a quick in and out doing Self-Checkout and avoiding all people. When you've been Self-Quarantining the Laundry List of necessary To-Do shit begins to lengthen. Allen has a vehicle and drives, but he's at Work a lot now, so I don't like asking him to run errands the moment he comes in from Work tired and so ready to just relax. I remember juggling Working full time with everything else, sometimes you just couldn't manage to do it all or squeeze everything in, Pandemic just magnifies that challenge. The Son is calling every day to check on me now he knows I have Pneumonia. He wants me doing NOTHING but realizes that's not an Option realistically.
Having Child(ren) in School magnifies it all further, everything else has to revolve around her School Schedule. She'll be having a long Weekend with the MLK Holiday this Monday, so a day to Sleep In and rest further. So far they aren't insinuating that the High School will go back to Pandemic Home Schooling, which was a total failure, so I think they'll try not to have to resort to it again or stress Families out with all of that. I'll be glad when Spring Break is here... I know, I know... they just got off Winter Break... but, we're living Break to Break now. *LOL* Most of the Kiddos are living Break to Break now too, with rampant Spread I don't know how Safe any of the Kiddos actually feel in a Classroom anymore? I know my Grandchild's Anxiety levels got so high at times she resisted going to School. Right now she's compliant about going, but Pandemic has altered their Educational Process for sure. Most especially for the Special Needs Students.
I know that Blog Fodder when you're sequestering in your own Home almost all of the time becomes scarce and rather boring content. I can't say I feel Bored and don't mind being at Home so much, it just doesn't give me much to Write about that's Interesting or varies much from Day to Day. It's being said some people aren't handling voluntary Lockdown extended stay well at all, so I don't know how many of them will actually do it if it's too difficult for them to Cope with? Most people we know don't stay Home as much as we all do in this household and haven't thruout Pandemic. In fact, most people seem to be acting as if there is no Pandemic, which has probably caused much of the spread and other issues, you can't moderate personal behaviors.
How about where you live, are people behaving or misbehaving during Pandemic? I'm reading Blogs that mention what's going on during Pandemic and others that ignore mentioning Pandemic at all ever, avoiding any Social Issues going on entirely. Perhaps their Blog isn't a Platform for what they think about important issues, I dunno? Some Blogs are very Topic Specific and I know what to expect no matter what else is going on, you wouldn't know by those Blogs. That's a nice Escape Blog to just visit occasionally, when that Topic Specific Blog will always stick with a certain Topic no matter what... be it Food, Decorating, Art, their Home, their Business, whatever they cover almost exclusively, if not exclusively.
I do miss the Blogs that used to cover some specific things and now don't Blog anymore or cover what they used to. I've been trying to find new Blogs to follow, with more time spent here sequestered at Home again. So if there's some you enjoy, it's where I typically find Blogs and Bloggers I didn't know about. I've not had good Luck finding Blogs via Google methods of searching them out or using Blogger to find Blogs I'd connect to or Bloggers I'd connect to. Not every Blog does it for me... and sometimes the Blog is Okay but the Blogger isn't a connection or a fit. Just like any other Community, there's lots of Personality in The Land to sift thru. *Ha ha ha* I use the above Mantra while critiquing Blog Choices.
As I dropped Princess T off at School on Friday Morning I decided to drive thru the McDonald's across the Street to get a quick Breakfast to take Home to The Man and I. I was wearing my Mask, every Employee at McD's was wearing theirs as a Chin Strap! Plus, they used a Blueberry English Muffin instead of a regular one on our McMuffins, too Sweet, think they'd run out and substituted?! But, at least that meant circumventing cooking a Breakfast, so I just ditched the Blueberry English Muffin and ate the inside contents of Sausage, Cheese and Egg. They were only Two Bucks each, so they probably had a run on them and ran out of regular English Muffins? Drive-Thrus are doing a brisk business everywhere during Pandemic.
With Inflation being the highest in forty Years, Milk, Eggs, Bacon and many other staples are soaring in price, so a Four Buck Breakfast for The Man and I was still Appealing, even if the McD Employees can't get it right and their Food is marginal in qualifying as actual Food. Let's face it, they have pimply faced Kids and Old Geezers for their primary workforce too, so my expectations are low if we resort to a Meal there. *LOL* The Man enjoyed his and was jazzed I Surprised him with a Meal from there, since he actually likes McDonalds food... he's not very discerning about what qualifies as Food to him, what can I say? *Bwahahaha*
We've managed to stagger Bathroom rotations in the Morning while Allen is getting ready for Work and Princess T is getting ready for School. She was struggling Friday Morning with some new fake Eyelashes she wanted to wear, they look Natural but she's a novice at gluing them on. I'm just glad she didn't glue her damned Eyes shut! *LOL* She used to swipe my Magnetic Eyelashes and ended up losing every single one of them. *Le Sigh* Probably Eli is playing with them like Spider Toys or something and batting them around the Floor of her Room? Or Isaac will find one stuck to his Socks? *Smiles* I find she 'borrows' a lot of my stuff and it's never to be seen again... so it's just best to buy her some of her own to Salvage mine!
Be Well, Stay Safe, Blessings, Love and Light from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian
