Just Stay Home – Day 20

Literally minutes after posting last night I saw the announcement that all Pennsylvanians are being asked to wear masks in public.

One more effing thing.

The CDC is also recommending this, despite the fact that our idiot (yeah, I’m just going to say that) leader is not going to comply.

So I guess I have to get on board. Or just, like, not go out. Which I am also ok with.

It occurred to me an hour or so later that this recommendation also applies to my sanity walks outside. Which are sanity walks because they are a normal thing we are still allowed to do. And now they will be less normal.

One more thing.

I’m about one more “one more thing” away from losing it.

I did my Zoom yoga class this morning. That was a good thing to do.

I cleaned my house today. I am going to pay my cleaners this week, but she can’t come do the actual cleaning. So I did.

I tried to replace the light bulbs in my stove hood and one of them came out like this:

Which is not the whole bulb…the screwy bit is still stuck in there. Sigh. I have 3 days until the new bulbs come to figure out how to get it out of there without electrocuting myself.

Apparently one way to do that is with a potato. I had 12 pounds of (sweet) potatoes two weeks ago, but now of course I have none. Unless a frozen, baked sweet potato would work.

My parents came to visit while they were out cruising around. We sat far apart in the garage for a bit. Weird, but a nice moment of human contact.

Yesterday I ordered crabgrass stuff from Home Depot to be delivered today. I got an email saying it was delivered but there is no sign of the actual big bag around here anywhere. I was on text support with Home Depot for a while and then they disappeared. So that didn’t work out great.

I tried to order tacos via Door Dash and my order was canceled – twice. So the universe does not want me to have tacos, I hear that.

This new delivery culture is not working for me today.

I am frustrated and irritated that I can’t do the things I want to do and get the things I want to get and eat the things I want to eat. 😩

And I don’t want to wear a mask to go for a walk. [Stomping my bratty ass feet all alone in my clean kitchen.]

I know many people have it much much worse and I don’t for a minute mean to imply that life is not completely fine for me at the moment. But it still sucks a lot.

I really wanted a taco.

I am going to give sewing (swearing – it did it again!) a try tonight. I watched most of two episodes of Tiger King last night so I’ll try to get through some more of that.

I will also work on getting over myself.

It’s all fine.

This is temporary.

I have food.

I even have extra TP.

Everyone I love is healthy.

Hang in there…this is all so hard.
