Wow

I feel like I say “wow” about 100 times a day right now. Also, “this is crazy.” I know we’re all trying to get used to this and at times, it’s pretty scary. I try to avoid talking about anything to do with the news on this blog, but this is unavoidable. The weirdest part for me is that I already work from home (and have for about 10 years) so I know what that’s all about, but being told to stay home is a completely different situation. I also live with two people who work in grocery stores so there’s that. And George hasn’t had a day off in 14 days. As a result, I am staying home, except for when I go for a walk every day. I miss swimming so much though, that I keep looking at buying a swim spa. Some people hoard food, some people want to buy weird sh*t.

Anyway, I thought I should get a bit caught up on here. Last month, I went to Cabo with a bunch of friends. I stayed at the same place George and I stayed at a couple of years ago and it’s just incredible.

That’s our backyard and the house is also pretty dang nice. We had seven adults and six kids staying there. Definitely not the ratio of adults to kids that I prefer, but at least none of the kids were mine. The house is huge and I had a bedroom suite that my entire house could fit in. Here’s a video tour of the entire house.

One night, we all packed into the minivan to go to dinner. There were 13 of us in the one car. Definitely not social distancing. Every adult had a kid on their lap, except the driver. Mia and I were in the waaaaay back. #notsafe

The next weekend (over leap day), my sister and I flew to Los Angeles to see Oprah!! I can’t even begin to tell you how awesome it was.

Oh yeah, and we got to see J-Lo too!

And yes, this was the event where Oprah fell. Oh and Rita Wilson was also in the audience that day. It was about a week before she tested positive for COVID-19. Ugh.

BUT, it was so great to be able to go away for the weekend with my sister. It’s been way too long. And we also got to meet up with my dad, too!

They both hated that I wanted to take pictures, but now, I’m so happy I did!

Now I’m home for a while (along with the rest of the world, I hope – Spring Breakers, go the f*ck home!). Fortunately, I’m still working and my workload is only going to increase. The way my job works is that when the economy tanks, there is more work. I’m not complaining, I’m thankful, so thankful for this. My heart goes out to everyone who isn’t working and can’t work and I hope that they get some relief soon.

In this time of uncertainty, not only to I want to buy a swim spa, but I also want to adopt all the dogs! I haven’t…yet. Instead, I borrowed one of my sister’s dog for a few days. Her name is Bailey and she’s been on the blog before. She’s a puggle and she’s always stressed out because she’s looking for her brain.

But we love having her around and she’s a good little walking companion.

I think you’re all caught up now. Today, my schedule consists of a 10-hour date with a puzzle while watching 10 hours of tv, a walk, and an hour of news (that’s all I allow myself to watch). Hope I can get everything done!

Stay safe, wash your hands, and stay home.

    Did you good little walking companion escape from her leash and not come when you called her? Then, did you imagine what your sister (my niece) would do to you after you had to tell her Bailey ran in front of a car?
    Memories that never go away.

      Lol, no, thankfully! Bailey has been pretty well behaved. I just have to remember that she’s looking for her brain. It helps. A lot.
