Day 16 – Keep doing it…or like, not doing it…

Good news today:

  • faster tests (and more of them)
  • This made me literally LOL
  • I remembered to put the trash out (the bar is so low for good news)
  • I have declared my child to be “safe” after being out of contact with people for 2 solid weeks
  • I put on real pants and shoes and jewelry – it’s dumb but feels so much better to act like my normal self
  • I picked up extra paint brushes for our painting project (online order with touch less pickup) and they found some elastic for me – elastic is like toilet paper, everyone wants it, there isn’t any
  • Drive through (again touchless) Chick Fil A – politically problematic but a nice little bit of normal in our day
  • The stuff I ordered to facilitate removing my month-old manicure has arrived – another project! Yay!

(Dixie is excited about helping with my DIY manicure)

Less good news:

  • It’s cold and damp and that is not helpful
  • My mother is trying to convince me to wear a mask at the grocery store – I’m not there yet
  • The first Covid19 death in our county happened yesterday. So sorry for him and his family 😢
  • None of my coworkers laughed when I shared the potato boss (see second bullet above)

I am extremely intimidated by this whole mask sewing situation. I am unclear on what kind is the right kind and I don’t want to make the wrong kind. I’m going to make this kind – hoping it’s the least wrong/most right option.

I dug this old girl out of the basement and we are going to give it a go. Wish me luck 🤞🍀

Hang in there!
