Monday, Another week of merriment and bliss!

     Oh Happy, happy joy, joy!  Trying to convince myself I am loving life right now. Trying hard to be grateful, but boy is it hard. Even though I am used to being home, I feel like I am caged. I am not.  We can still go for walks. We can still work outside in our yards. (weather willing) I don't know what my problem is, but I am just on edge. I want to keep it real here.  Sometimes I can be a Polly anna and sometimes I am a Debbie downer.  My mood flips hourly.  All I can do is just to keep going.

     I am going to hem 6 pairs of pants today and maybe fix a dress and fix a wedding dress.  Don't think much will be done outside as it is going to be very windy.  I suppose I can find something to clean in my house.  But you all know it is spotless. *snort*

     Hub's has lost 13 lbs so far on his diet and I am happy for him.  But I really want to bake some cinnamon rolls or cookies.  Food especially sweets comfort me and I can't do this.

     Yesterday I spent about 3 hours at Lil sis's house helping her clean her basement. I am taking the truck over to get a truck load of things we are taking to the dump.  Mostly boxes and things that need to be thrown out.  There is also a pile of things to donate, but the second hand stores are closed and I don't know where to take this stuff.  It might have to wait.

     There is still a room full of boxes of mom's that need to be gone through.  Mostly paperwork and photos.  We did not have the will to get through that stuff.  It is a project for another time.

  So today we move on in this mess, nothing has really changed here other than we are in a lock down.  Just trying to keep this area of the country safe although Idaho has more cases and we have had 2 deaths in the hospital.  This is a big state with much empty space, but people have to take the social distancing seriously. 

     I am so grateful that I have Sissie here, I get to drive over and see here everyday.  We always find something to laugh about and that helps so much.

     I do find time is going by really quickly, it seems like it is always Friday, which seems odd to me.  Like the days go by quickly yet I feel like the hours grind.  Do any of you feel this way?

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.

Kim

  1. I have nowhere to go, but I do feel a bit constrained at times...lol...silly me. Maybe the boxes of your mother's things needs two people to go through it so you can lean on each other and make each other laugh.

  3. Having just returned from an area with a lot of cases (I was there for my dad's passing and funeral-otherwise I wouldn't have traveled) I am currently self isolating for 14 days. My state is 4th in the nation for cases. Scary, scary stuff. I'm really looking forward to going back to work and some level of normalcy.

  4. I think the realty is that most of us will waver between positive and feeling down. It's kind of a woman's role I think. trying t be strong and then when no one is looking, have our weak moments. Maybe just me.

    1. Yes, that is me. Yesterday Hubs was showing signs of just not being himself. I am sure because of the lock down.

  5. I am pleased you have your sister to laugh with Kim - we all need someone we can laugh with while we are in this dreadful state. We have had one death here yesterday. The police are arresting people who go out & break the Stay Home rule for no reason. I am pleased they are being tough about it as otherwise some ruin it for the ones that do obey the rules. Take care my friend

    1. We had 5 new cases here all among the elderly. I would love to know which rest home is affected but they don't tell us.

  6. So far there's no stay at home order for my area, but I'm just being careful. Plus I am enjoying the down time and being able to get things done. Hang in there, kiddo, we're gonna get through this.

    1. I know, you are lucky to live where there is no one affected.
